The cringe-worthy acting and sloppy screenplay make this film feel like an unnecessary closing to a great series. Too many plot elements that don't get resolved: Skinny at the house when cops arrive is never shows. Badger taking car to wherever, never shown. Parents going to park, never shown. Yet all these things are in the story. Pinkman, a guy who through the entire Breaking Bad series needed to be with someone, all of a sudden wants to be alone. I don't buy it.
Interesting premise, poor execution. The movie starts strong with a suspenseful action sequence. Then it goes into a confusing cat and mouse story of aliens vs. humans. I don't mind a lot of slow build-up and dialogue, District 9 did this perfectly. Also don't need a lot of action in every scene. Cerebral sci-fi is meant to be a bit confusing as long as you resolve all your plot twists at the end. Captive State solves some of its riddles but a bit too late, way past the point you throw your arms in the air. It's the sci-fi flick that could have been…
An enjoyable film, though full of sci-fi clichés. Great performance by Noomi Rapace. The film manages to combine action, romance and comedy offering a little something for everyone. Some of the sets look cheap (like the server room). All in all not a great film but good entertainment.
Not bad, not great. Better than a lot of big budget Hollywood films with the same theme. This movie will no shock you, so don't expect a horror film. This movie doesn't have many action scenes. It's more of psychological drama. I thought the acting was good, the dialog is spot on. No major plot holes in the script. It's not post-apocalyptic as some pointed out because the they are in the early stages of turmoil after a cyber attack. The movie is really about how this event shakes a group of friends and helps them find themselves. The ending is a little Disney, but a good movie nonetheless. Not shocking but engaging.
A movie that casts Jews in a negative light? Blasphemy, anti-Semitism! Oh wait, it was made by Jews. Never mind.
