Machine Gun Kelly sustained a hairline fracture of the sternum on set toward the end of filming, reportedly from repeat punches to the chest from an unnamed person playing a police officer. The actor claimed that when he complained to a crew member about the incident, he was told to "suck it up". See more »
It's an interesting political thriller with the dressing of a Sci-fi movie, that's overall mediocre and it has the tendency to get real dull at times, sometimes so dull you'll... "miss" it's attempts to be cleaver and intelligent.
It's a mystery that needs to be unraveled, but too many elements in it are not really needed. Lots of stuff met to make you look the other direction so you don't see it coming, it technically works too well cause by the time I come back from looking the other way I forget what was directly ahead of me, and they had me looking too long in the other direction that I no longer care what's right in front of me.
The sci-fi backdrop was a cool idea. The visual elements of the movie is what really makes it feel Sci-Fi. The story happening in front of you makes this a political thriller about a resistance group planing a terrorist attack, while certain small visual tones behind it make you remember that this movie has aliens in it. It's literally an alien invasion story that's not about the aliens.
Captive State is trying too much and not succeeding in all it's attempts. A very cleaver idea not full flushed out.
