Movie Spotlight: The 5th Wave

The 5th Wave is a 2016 movie starring Chloë Grace Moretz, Nick Robinson, Ron Livingston, Maggie Siff, Alex Roe, Maria Bello, Maika Monroe, Liev Schreiber, and Zackary Arthur. It's based on a young adult novel by Rick Yancey. After an alien invasion has devastated the world, 16-year-old Cassie Sullivan (Chloë Grace Moretz) tries to rescue her 5-year-old brother (Zackary Arthur) before the fifth wave of attacks.

The 5th Wave is an unsettling movie about the horrors of alien invasion and a teenage girl's willingness to do whatever it takes to save her brother. It seemed more realistic than most alien movies (not over-the-top like a lot of them), and the aliens were real jerks. All of the actors gave great performances, especially Chloë Grace Moretz, who has been great in everything I've seen her in. : )

My rating: 7.5/10
