Goofs

Before the end title starts, there were some video clippings were playing to show the world wide revolt. Just after "Paris" it showed "Karachi" which is supposed to be in Pakistan. But clippings was of "Dhaka" and Bangladesh flags were waved by the people in the scene. Moreover, this was not a video of a protest at all. Rather it was a video of a pilgrimage for a religious gathering called 'Bishwa Iztema" held every year in January in Dhaka. See more »

Finally an alien film with some substance!
8 November 2019 | by oldchunkofcoalSee all my reviews

Not sure why this movie got so much hate. I'm very picky when it comes to movies, but I thought captive state was great. Maybe people didn't like it because it wasn't your typical "Alien movie" like war of the worlds for example, it had more substance to it. So i would definitely recommend it to any sci fi fans out there.
