      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      This sci-fi thriller may not necessarily leave viewers in a Captive State, but it offers reasonably diverting alien invasion action with ambitious political undertones.

      Dmitry Samarov Chicago Reader Whether our streets are under assault by alien insects or craven speculators, if a filmmaker shows the places we know and love, we will care about the story's fate, no matter how far-fetched. Mar 28, 2019 Full Review Matthew Monagle Austin Chronicle At its best, Captive State blends imaginative science-fiction with the caliber of detail-oriented espionage you might find in an Alan J. Pakula film. Rated: 3/5 Mar 21, 2019 Full Review Leah Pickett Chicago Reader Overall it's a mess, compounded by murky CGI and some unrealistic performances. Mar 16, 2019 Full Review Nyle Coleman InSession Film This new take on alien invasion took a moment for me to accept but in the end, Captive State is a brilliant film. Rated: B May 2, 2024 Full Review Manuel São Bento MSB Reviews One of those movies that come out every year showing tremendous potential, an innovative and intriguing premise, but in the end, it just isn’t able to succeed. Rated: C- Jul 24, 2023 Full Review Josh Parham Next Best Picture The world building provided could have been stronger, but it’s enough of a foundation to be informative and interesting. Rated: 5/10 Jun 4, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Scotty B Wow why the hate? Great movie! Twists and turns throughout. Kept me guessing the whole time. Goodman is always a great actor. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/02/24 Full Review Linda M Interesting, smart and ahead of its time. Hidden masterpiece that deserved far more recognition, however, perhaps it is best this way. Very, very clever. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/23/24 Full Review Jason A A clever, dark, gritty take on an alien invasion premise. If you think Marvel movies are the bees knees, this one might be above you. But if you like dark Sci fi then you'll love this. We'll done! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/03/24 Full Review Vlad M An underrated masterpiece! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/14/24 Full Review Damien C This is not your typical alien movie. It's a slow burn, methodical, and cerebral movie. Also, an amazing glimpse at both sides of humanity. If the acting was a bit better by some folks it would have been perfect. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/09/24 Full Review Chris F Typical load of alien rubbish. Why do film companies think that this sort of content is of any interest to the paying public. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/12/24 Full Review Read all reviews
