Are you into thriller and action well then I suggest you to watch The 5th Wave! The 5th Wave, is a action filled movie. This shows us about survival and how to survive on your own and take care of yourself and your loved ones. This is a great movie to watch and I recommend everyone too! I recommend people who love action and alien invasions and fighting and running to survive, to watch this!! I enjoyed this movie a lot because it teaches you about how to survive on your own and your loved ones. 5/5 Stars. @SunshineLove of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Directed by J Blakeson in 2016 based on Rick Yancey’s 2013 novel of the same name, this American SF drama depicts waves of increasingly deadly alien attacks.
Although the visual effects of tsunami appear awesome, the storyline seems somewhat silly with kids trained like an African child-soldier.
It looks like a young-adult fantasy rather than such an action-packed hard-fight against the invading aliens as I expected.

This is a pretty interesting movie, though they need a sequel. Good effects also.

It was kind of an original story but it was very predictable. I guessed every major plot surprise. The ending kind of leaves you hanging.

I'm not sure why Hollywood screen writers' have such a difficult time writing scripts that have an original plot, but once again they managed to fail spectacularly. This movie was a real let-down. The description on the case sounded interesting, but unfortunately it was very predicable, with a cliched plot line that was easily seen through, and the characters were very 2-dimensional.

The plot was interesting and fun to watch, but they use Our LORD's name in vain a few times. Not highly recommended.

I'm a huge sci fi fan, but I didn't care to much for this.
