Four waves of increasingly deadly alien attacks have left most of Earth decimated. Against a backdrop of fear and distrust, Cassie (Chloë Grace Moretz) is on the run, desperately trying to save her younger brother. As she prepares for the inevitable and lethal 5th wave, Cassie teams up with a young man who may become her final hope – if she can only trust him.
Convoluted plot…who has time to fall in love when you are trying to save your brother from aliens? Give me a break, though the guy – Alex Roe – was hot!
Very disappointed with this film, which lacked explanation of the connection between the government (?) and the aliens. The first three waves made complete sense to me, if I was going to decimate a species, but the fourth and fifth waves came poorly explained.
