The 5th Wave (2016) Rated PG-13

Four waves of alien invasions have left the Earth in ruin – meanwhile, a sister seeks to find her brother. Based on the book by  Rick Yancey. Starring Chloë Grace Moretz, Matthew Zuk, and Gabriela Lopez.

This is basically another Young Adult film. The plot has been used before countless times. It doesn’t help that the plot has a lot of holes to fill by the end of the movie. The story has Cassie trying to find her brother, but she also has a couple of love interests to help the story along. The film pushes the suspension of disbelief to the edge with a plot where teenagers are needed to fight against the aliens. It doesn’t help that the film leaves it open for a sequel as nothing is resolved, making it not worth a watch.
