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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's depressing to see Ms. Moretz - so spirited in "Clouds of Sils Maria" and the "Kick-Ass" movies - reduced to constant mooning at Mr. Roe. And yet the source novel is part of a trilogy. Expect sequels.
Rotten: the only standout in the cast besides Moretz is Maika Monroe (It Follows) as a Goth fighter with no patience for pussies. Jeez, if only Monroe and Mortez had been allowed to take over. Instead, here's another dystopian washout.
Rotten: With two subsequent books in the series, can a movie franchise be far behind? Let's hope not.
Rotten: The whole thing appears to have been designed by some crazed Oedipal wing of the N.R.A.
Even the popcorn was bad.
I would call it one of the funniest movies of the year, but I don’t think I was supposed to laugh at it.
Just go see it
The cast is amazing. They left out a few minor details and sped up the longer (it felt longer in the book) parts. But other than that it was pretty on topic. Don't listen to anybody else. Just go see the movie for yourself. It gave me chills...
Awful, the script, the acting the CGI, the lighting was good, but even that would have been better if it had of been pitch black. 2 hours watching a pitch black screen would have been more enjoyable. It is a long time since I have wasted money at a cinema, shamed I didn't wait until it was released on cable I could then of at least turned it off
