Plot Outline:

The Earth has been attacked by aliens who have a plan: Wave 1 - knock out all power on the planet, effectively setting mankind back to the stone age. Wave 2 - set off a massive tsunami to wipe out all coastal cities. Wave 3 - a plague spread by birds wiping out the majority of the population, leaving the unlucky behind. Wave 4 - activate human sleeper, who are actually aliens. Which brings Cassie Sullivan to Wave 5 - believing she is one of the only humans left on the planet, she will stop at nothing to find her brother, who was taken by bus (along with other children) to a secret facility. When she meets Evan, a strange, but sweet, boy - she knows she can't trust him. But the closer she gets to him - the closer she gets to the truth. -- Chris Kavan

Can't differentiate itself from the onslaught of teen-centric apocalyptic films (think Hunger Games, Divergence, Maze Runner and on and on). Although it starts off strong it quickly devolves in to a story that is in part fantastical and nonsensical. Even though the book is a trilogy, I have a feeling this is going to be the last wave for this series.

Just another blablabla slobbery teengirls movie

"There were no messages from our galactic party crashers during the first 10 days. But pretty soon, they had a name. We called them The Others."

I'm not a believer of those New Year's resolutions which are traditionally made during a drunk moment. Usually they are long forgotten after a few months. However, I have a new resolution after watching "The 5th Wave". I'm never ever going to watch another post-apocalyptic, teen film based on a youth book, where there's also the intention to use it in several, successive films. Content wise it's obvious this movie is intended for teenage girls. The initial genres linked to this movies are completely useless. It all started great and it seemed to me it was going into an interesting direction. But the moment the romantic, pub...

'Wave' of Boredom

'The 5th Wave' is an amalgamation of all the recent young teen-centric dystopian/action/sci-fi/romance book-turned-movie releases. Take every single trope from every single one of those movies, slap them together, and you have this lame effort. The first act was surprisingly not bad. I liked the global disaster approach of the first three "waves". The aliens (who we never see in their true form) seemed methodical and the catastrophic events were about as harsh as PG-13 gets. Then the rest of the movie just fell entirely flat. The main girl becomes a capable survivalist instantly, cause the plot requires it. She develops a forced romance between two dudes, both of which have no defining qualities outside of poor decision making. The alien's scheme for their "5th" wave is unnecessar...
