Storyline

Nearly a decade after occupation by an extraterrestrial force, the lives of a Chicago neighborhood on both sides of the conflict are explored. In a working-class Chicago neighborhood occupied by an alien force for nine years, increased surveillance and the restriction of civil rights have given rise to an authoritarian system - and dissent among the populace.

Trivia

In one of the early shots of the Chicago skyline the Ryugyong Hotel was added. The Ryugyong Hotel isn't in Chicago, it's in Pyongyang, North Korea. It was started in 1987 and still sits unfinished. It's in the Guinness Book of World Records as the tallest unused building. See more »

Goofs

The IP-Address, they try to connect to via good old phone line, is wrong. IPv4 uses four decimal notations separated with a dot, which cannot exceed the number 255. See more »

Crazy Credits

During the beginning of the end credits, a map of the world is shown with listed locations where human rebellions have achieved victory against the aliens, across America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. 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.
