About the Movie

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. – Andy Webster, New York Times, Jan 21, 2016

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. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Jan 22, 2016

Rotten: With two subsequent books in the series, can a movie franchise be far behind? Let's hope not. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Jan 21, 2016

Rotten: The whole thing appears to have been designed by some crazed Oedipal wing of the N.R.A. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Jan 25, 2016
