The 5th Wave (2016)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
I have not read the book so I won’t be able to say how accurate this movie is but the film itself is alright. The idea is brilliant 🙂 . Alien invasion with a twist 😛 . I love the beginning section as it throws you straight into the action and I loved the explanation into each of the “waves”. However, personally I preferred this section. Once we had caught back with Cassie (in real time to the narrative) everything starts to drag out. Don’t get me wrong there are some good scenes in here and the narrative does move along quite nicely. I liked the set up to the world, the love triangle isn’t bad, and the fact she was trying to find her brother was nice 🙂 . However, some part were dragged far longer than they should have. They became filler scenes which didn’t help character development or enhance the story. Though this is a pretty good dystopian alien movie with a cool twist so I definitely recommend! Enjoy 😀
I give this 3 Stars out of 5!
