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

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.

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

Goodman, Dunn and Farmiga play even the more ridiculous elements straight, as if they're in a cop movie. The younger actors are all terrific as well.
