WARNING : This Movie is for soppy girls aged 11 to triangles, boys washing their pecs etc. abound

Wow! That was complete and utter rubbish. Can we please have it listed under genres as Teen Romance / Brain Rot and not under the genre Sci-fi, Action, Adventure as it is listed above. Are teenagers these days all goldfish???, is this not the same plot as Twilight, Divergence etc only replace vampires etc. with Aliens?. I love my apocalyptic movies and after the first 20 minutes I thought it wasn't going so bad... decent special effects, seeing what each "wave" was going to do and I was looking forward to seeing "the others", but alas that was it for the movie after that it was like opening a teen magazine while jamming a skewer up my nose in to my brain. I must say I did get a few laughs at the many cliches I called before they happened followed by my swift exit to save my brain from rotting by the absurd stupidity of it all. If you are not a girl aged 11 to 15 avoid this movie like you would avoid the plague

I love it

I read the 5th Wave long before I found out it was going to be a movie I was ecstatic. Especially with Nick Robinson (YUM) and Chloe Moretz. I went to see the movie a few days after it came out. With all of the negative reviews, I was worried that it was honestly as bad as everyone said it was. Chloe made a fabulous Cassie, she was even who I pictured as Cassie. There have been reviews about how she had eyeliner and painted nails. I think many people overlook the fact that she had a book bag filled with things that she probably wanted to have to make things seem normal, just like she packed her cellphone. They stayed true to the book besides the minor changes they decided to make. But in all honesty, no movie will be exactly like the book. I mean, look at Twilight. It got better and better as time went on. I honestly think people are being too hard on the movie.

The 5th Wave Is A Splendid Movie

The 5th Wave follows the beautiful and wonderful 16-year-old actress Cassie Sullivan and her family. Waves of alien strategic invasion have devastated the world and Earth's population is on the verge of extinction. Humankind is knocked back to the Stone Age. Cassie's mother is dead from a modified plague by the Others (the Aliens). Cassie's remaining family move into a neighbouring refuge camp. The army comes in and says they are there to help. However, the army buses the kid out of the camp and promises to bus the adults out next. Cassie gets separated from her brother. Her brother is taken by the Army for care and protection. Her father and other survivors in Ohio are killed in a massacre by the army. Cassie scavenges her way through to the base to meet her 5-year-old brother, Sam. Cassie is saved from an enemy sniper by Evan Walker. Cassie falls in love with him and later learns he is an Other in humanoid form. Cassie learns that Colonel Vosch and the Army is actually the Others and the fifth wave they have planned is to use children to eliminate the rest of the earth's survivors by misleading them. She learns the hard way to trust no one and leaves him. The only thing that keeps Cassie going is the hope that she can save her brother from the "training" camp established by the Army (Others). Meanwhile Ben Parish, Cassie's crush before the wave and her brother are in the same squad trained under the Others. Ben also comes to know the Others plans. Evan who follows Cassie helps her and Ben to save Sam and demolish the training facility. The Others evacuate from the facility with the intend to deploy the children as soon as possible to other cities. Ben and his squad is seen enjoying their meal with Cassie and ponders hope as humanity's driving force for survival.

I actually like the plot twist of the movie. It has alien invasion, romance, and the cast of the movie is what makes the movie good. I would have liked if the movie had more excitement but I think the movie was good. Chloe G. Moretz, Nick Robinson, Alex Roe & Maika Monroe. The 5th Wave has to be one of the best movies this year. It's in the level of being as big as The Hunger Games, Divergent, and the Twilight. I really thought that the movie was excellent and I hope the other 2 movies are made so we can all find out what happens next. Hopefully the next movies are done better than the first. The 5th Wave is similar to these other movie series but the only difference is that most of the characters are ordinary and all of a sudden there are aliens and the aliens are disguised as humans so any real humans will have to be aware if they are with real humans or the aliens which in the book/movie they are known as "the others"

I Greatly enjoyed this movie.

I went into the movie, having just gotten not so good news, but I left rather happy with what I saw. It is a very good movie, the preview to the movie was not at all making it seem like what it was. In my opinion this was better to the Hunger Games last two movies, I was enjoying the movie, and I didn't fall asleep half way through the movie like I did with both of the last Hunger Game movies. That serious got boring after the second one, I really hope to see the second book become a movie. I know the movie is going into a genre that's got too many movies in it at this point, but this one actually had me feeling like it could actually happen. So far, this one and the Divergent series movies have been the main YA movies that truly get my attention. And at this point the Maze Runner Series seems to be all about the actor not the movie, when a selling point is that the main guy is hot, then is it really a good movie or just good to the people who think the actor is hot? I will recommend for people to see this movie, cause I think it deserves better then what it's getting. Amazing movie.
