Captive State

Captive State ★★★

This cerebral alien invasion thriller starts off promising and continues that way until it gets overly convoluted and you are no longer sure what the purpose of the plot is.

Liked the score and kept the adrenaline up for the first half which is almost like a chase movie. The political thriller aspect gets bogged down by unnecessary twists.

The atmosphere is the big draw. Big ideas don't always land but attempt to do the modern alien invasion a little differently.
