The fracking overlords
15 June 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Captive State should had been an interesting alien resistance movie. Director Rupert Wyatt turns it into a listless dour movie with a fuzzy plot.

There has been alien invasion and the governments of the world realise they cannot defeat the invaders so they cooperate with them. The humans of planet Earth has been colonised and made to work hard.

Captive State is set nine years later in Chicago. William Mulligan (John Goodman) is the detective who is after an insurgent group. One of whom is presumed dead but turns up alive. These resistance fighters have an elaborate plan to destroy the aliens during a unity rally. The aliens what we see of them who look a bit like spiky spider type creature.

The film keeps many of the characters shallow, the plot is kept murky so it can deliver its plot twist. After a sombre beginning the film does pick up pace eventually.
