The reason why Captive State is so confusing is they intentionally keep you in the dark about what is going on until the very end. The problem is, they don’t do it in a suspenseful way that builds up to an exciting conclusion.
No Manches Frida was nearly a shot for shot remake of the German film that it was based on. Meaning that the movie had a plot and structure to follow. This time around, the film is forced to create their own story and it fails miserably at it.
The MCU’s latest origin story is also its first solo film for a female character. They put their absolute best effort into touting the movie as such, and after seeing it, I understand why all the emphasis was on pre-hype.
