Captive State – a simple rebellion story

First off, the deliberate camera movements in this movie make me really dizzy. They could have tell the story adequately without employingthis hip, guerilla indie single-camera-like style of shooting. The story also kinda drag along throughout the movie with it’s labyrinthine misdirection attempt to an otherwise very simple storyline. I am sure due to the limitation on the budget, they hardly show the alien and there is no prolonged, sprawling battle scene between human and their alien overlord. All in all, this movie is about telling a rebellion story written for the block buster scale on a shoe string budget. And it shows.
