The 5th Wave

The 5th Wave is a 2016 American science fiction thriller, part of a trilogy.


Directed by Susannah Grant, Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinker, it is based on the novel of the same name by Rick Yancy.

It stars Chloe Grace Moretz as the heroine, Cassie Sullivan.  Nick Ronbinson is the father who becomes a zombie.  Ron Livingston is Oliver Sullivan.  Maggie Siff is Lisa Sullivan.  Alex Roe is love interest Evan Walker.

Basically it is the story of a teenager, Cassie Sullivan, and an alien invasion of the world to the point of human extinction.  She becomes separated from her five year old brother, Sam, who is shipped off to the Army to become a soldier to fight the aliens (I kid you not).

She meets Evan Walker and falls for him.  More than that would be a spoiler.

I don’t think the movie is particularly exciting, but it isn’t horrible either.  I give it an indifferent 6/10.
