Captive StateThis story tells about a Chicago neighborhood that was exposed to a brutal occupation by an extraterrestrial force a decade later. Things seem to be different later as the film explores that life on both sides of the conflict, collaborators and opponents after the disaster. There may be more challenges for everyone but it is about occupying a homeland.

Critic Reviews of "Captive State"Chicago ReaderMarch 16, 2019
Overall it's a mess, compounded by murky CGI and some unrealistic performances.TheWrapMarch 15, 2019
An unsatisfying potluck of quasi-relevant, frustration-inducing ideas.Chicago Sun-TimesMarch 15, 2019
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.ReelViewsMarch 15, 2019
Unfortunately, character development is perfunctory and unsatisfactory. We're watching a bunch of pawns on a filmmaker's chessboard.indieWireMarch 15, 2019
The central plot development...is galvanizing in theory but mostly just confusing in practice.AV ClubMarch 15, 2019
It's really rather impressive, the extent to which Captive State sucks everything even potentially fun out of the alien-invasion genre.ComicsverseMarch 19, 2019
The interesting ideas and "trust no one" atmosphere, sadly, cannot save CAPTIVE STATE.CinemalogueMarch 18, 2019
The premise seems timely and provocative, but rarely does that translate to consistent suspense.Birth.Movies.Death.March 18, 2019
It's noise without structure, movement without direction, plot without story.One Guy's OpinionMarch 18, 2019
A cinematic Trojan horse, 'Captive State' promises to be an exciting thriller, but proves stodgy and dull.Paste MagazineMarch 18, 2019
It's a shame that its studio didn't more heavily market Captive State. Smart, layered, tense, well-executed sci-fi like this should be nurtured in movie theaters.Illinois TimesMarch 17, 2019
The first major surprise of 2019, Rupert Wyatt's sleeper is an uncommonly smart piece of science fiction that, like all great genre pieces, has a potent subtext.
