Well done - do not pay attention to critics (by petera00-177-105591)
This is probably the best sci fi movie to come out since Children of Men. The reviews I've read from this are atrocious... Den of Geek says that the scenes just "happen." What?! Isn't that what a movie should be? Geekwire says that the movie lacks a presence of aliens.... WHAT?! This is a thinking man's sci fi with some of the most tense scenes filmed that I've seen for a long time. This is what would happen in a police state.... Go into it with a fresh approach and you will leave ultimately satisfied. Don't go into it thinking it's some super hero movie... <more>
Because honestly Joseph Campbell's a heros journey can only be told so many times. And in all honestly - this is the best movie thus far of 2019.
People have become so lazy they can no longer think. This movie is AMAZING!!! You must be able to access your brain to enjoy. It's not a bang bang shoot em up action movie. No superheroes, no bubblegum plot. It's for the thinkers that still exist in this world. I almost didn't watch it because of the reviews. What a shame that would have been. This is my first post ever. I'm only posting because of the anger I feel towards the morons that 1-3 starred this movie. It's a 10 all the way.Love- The Legislature
Light A Match, Start A War... Captive State 2019 . (by ChipperX)
By Chipper F. Xavier, Esq.Captive State is an alien occupation film like many you may have already seen: Greedy aliens come to earth wielding sophisticated technology, seeking to rob the earth of its natural resources. Similar movies are V 1984 , Independence Day 1996 and Battlefield Earth 2000 . Like those movies, humans resist the aliens to spectacular effect, creating heroes out of the common every-man. Unlike other alien blockbuster movies, this one comes to the screen with very little hype and an incredible ensemble cast.John Goodman's performance as William Mulligan is not to be <more>
missed, but the real star of this movie is Ashton Sanders as Gabriel Drummond. He is real and very believable, which propels this film forward into legendary status. Honorable mentions go to Jonathan Majors, Vera Farmiga, Kevin Dunn and Alan Ruck.Science Fiction movies tend to be either big on special effects, or big on character development: The best SciFi gives us equal measures of both. Captive State succeeds partially because it is hard to see where the movie is going until the moment has arrived. We are aware immediately that there is a resistance afoot, but the players are literally unknown to us. That is a huge burden for people who like their fiction predigested, but true fans of SciFi are patient. Audience attention is crucial in Captive, where all the moving parts are quickly shuffled. When the special effects are introduced, they are original and terrifying. When you begin to catch the arc of the characters individual motivations, then all the pieces begin to fall into place - and the pace of this movie is break-neck.The aliens are not 100% original - but they are close enough to be mistaken for something totally new. As a bonus, they are utterly terrifying. The techno-organic symbiosis employed by the alien race is not incredibly advanced, but it succeeds in scaring the audience and upping the threat-level exponentially. What the movie does best is give the alien race ten years in our atmosphere to completely supplant our political system, effectively becoming the highest form of government, called Legislators. The alien race plays on our corruption, fear and systems of power to become the dominant species on earth. They propagandize their actions by telling humans there is no more hunger, no more war, and no more unemployment - so long as the Legislators are permitted to remain in power.Captive State is a thinking man's science fiction movie that does not skimp on special effects, plot or set-pieces. By successfully intertwining suspense, drama and action, this movie succeeds where countless other alien occupation movies have failed. Overall score: 10/10.
I enjoyed the execution of 'Captive State' in a genre that has fallen short in the past. Very much worth a watch, regardless of negative reviews. The acting was great with a strong cast and the movie didn't try to be something it's not. No '10min gun battle" or "action" for the sake of "action", but the film is engaging from start to finish. I will admit there was a slight predictablity in some squences but they were carried out successfully with additional twists to support the inevitable but open ending.
Metaphore like Carpenter's They Live! (by dj_shamrock)
This film is NOT about aliens, it's about what is actually happening in the world. Aliens aka Pentagon/USA invade countries and take their resources and get the peoples to fight among themselves. This film is about ICE, brainwashing, Pharmaceuticals, Exxon.... the Elites in control. If you understand Carpenters They Live, you will love this great "Sci-Fi" epic of exposing truths under the guise of fantasy. This film shows various backgrounds of people that normally would not connect "African American kid walks into a Skin head radio station} but team up "We the <more>
people" and fight back against the establishment. Excellent film! Cool John Carpenter-ish soundtrack. Destined to be a cult classic : ]
BRILLIANTLY DONE, SHOULD BE SCI-FI THRILLER SUSPENSE (by qacn)
I can honestly say I appreciate the collaboration of director Rupert Wyatt and writer Erica Beeney. A MUST SEE Sci-Fi Thriller. This movie is about an extraterrestrial take over and a human rebellion that takes place in Chicago. The movie is Brilliantly done, I'm surprised that is not categorized as a Sci-fi, Thriller, Suspense. Pay close attention to everything that's happening in the movie from beginning to end, the movie will leave you with your mouth open saying WOW.
Unexpected; a movie that will push to deep thinking (by abisio)
Captive State is about aliens controlling Earth. There concept has been used before but this time the scenario is different and original. After 10 years of Earth controlled by aliens from outer space, big city become governed by politicians who must personally report to an alien governor leaving underground. As in occupation situations collaborationist are rich and live with luxury while common people are exploited in this case mining naturally resources from the planet for the invaders. . Invaders also push technology back several years the movie occurs in 2027 but there is no internet or <more>
cellphones or digital technology . Some people formed a terrorist group to get rid of the invaders and shut down the corrupt collaborationist government. Those expecting an action packed movie with invincibly heroes will be somewhat disappointed. There are some violent scenes but the focus shift to many different people who in their heroic or coward way make up the story. For those he have no idea how terrorism work; let me explain that this is Terrorism 101. Every basic detail about cells, is explained and or used; as are also the not legal government methods to combat it. However; think for a moment that heroes here are the terrorists. Acting is quite acceptable. As always, John Goodman in auto pilot carries most of the movie; but the rest of the cast do not fall behind. The ending; is not Hollywood style and quite dramatic. In brief; it is not a popcorn movie but one to think about particularly about the situation in many countries
Several times a year I am tempted to walk out on a film because I don't like it, but I stay with the hopes that by the end it will somehow turn the corner. This is one of those films. The first 40 minutes is unengaging, with a series of characters we know little about and care about even less. Slowly but surely it turns the corners, and the hints, which are abundant, begin to make sense.I really liked the aliens who are unlike any aliens we've ever seen before. Kudos to the people who thought this up.In retrospect, the seemingly random flashes of the lives of a dozen people, makes <more>
sense and the film makers are trying to give you the feeling of the operations of a cell, where different people are acting independently. It works, but the price is a loss of engagement with any of the characters.Definitely worth a look.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I didn't find it confusing at all you just have to pay attention! So, for you people that have ADHD, just be sure to take your ritalin before you go and see it. That way you'll be able to sit still and concentrate! It is an engaging and deliberate movie with a few interesting plot twists. Did I figure them out before they happened? Yes, I did but I still enjoyed watching them unfold. Just give the movie a chance, it will be worth it.
