The 5th wave Movie review
WRITTEN BY ALEXIS TORRES
Score: ★★★ HOWLS
To start off, "The 5th Wave" was literally earth shattering because it shows the reality of new possibilities and how society could have to adapt and regenerate. The movie was about how the earth was “taken over” by what they call- "The Others."
The 1st wave knocked out the electricity and anything needing batteries.
The 2nd wave brought on an earthquake, which led to the 3rd wave of a major downpour/ breaking of the dam that flooded the area they were living in.
The 4th wave brought a virus killing basically everyone including the leading kids' parents.
The 5th wave was the Others looking like humans having the means to blend into society without any detection.
It is going to be hard to give an honest review without spoiling the entire movie. But who cares, because it’s already at the budget. For me, as a reporter and a critic, I was able to point out the confusing, bad, and good parts of the movie. Now if you haven’t seen this movie, you probably won’t know the main characters.
Cassie is the 1st character one should care about. She is basically explaining the story of how it all happened through her perspective. She is about 17, lost both her parents- her mother to the virus and then her father died due to being shot up by the military. Her only family left is her younger brother Sammie and she is determined to get him back from the military. Side note: she has/had a crush on Ben.
Ben is another important character. Before the waves occurred, he and Cassie attended school together. After losing his parents and sister because of the virus, he joined the military and became a captain of a unit. (The military took it upon itself to collect all the children and train them as if they were Navy Seals.) Also known as Zombie, he is the one to figure out the truth of who, the others really are.
Evan is most likely in his mid to late 20’s and ends up taking a special interest in Cassie after trying to target her but ending up developing emotions and feelings for her. Towards the middle of the movie he admits to being half other half human.
Sammie is close to 7-9 year old boy, who is Cassie’s brother.
The movie seemed like a big cliche because...
And the ending wasn’t very good. They make this big explosion happen and say they are going to try and save the rest of the kids. It ends with them eating beans with one girl eyeing Cassie because Ben is looking at her all sweetly. There better be a sequel otherwise that was a chilling ending no one can recover from.
