The Press Reviews

  • In "Captive State" aliens have taken over the world (as they will), but it's the viewers stuck watching this messy, lugubrious sci-fi thriller who may feel like the ones being held captive. Full Review

  • Captive State is imperfectly constructed, at times frustratingly so, but it's trying, doggedly, to do something different and given the bland efficiency of so many wide-releasing sci-fi movies, that's hard to fault. Full Review

  • Visually murky, choppily edited and lacking both narrative clarity and well-defined characterizations, Captive State is a deeply frustrating viewing experience. Full Review

  • An audacious and suspenseful thriller about resistance fighters waging an underdog campaign against occupying extraterrestrials. Full Review
