The perfect movie for critics to vent their frustration from other more popular YA. (by DejmalSoptik)
I consider this movie an above average YA adaptation. Sure it's not perfect and has a few cringe-worthy moments, but they are few and far in between. It has talented young actors and good pacing that keeps you on your toes especially in the first half of the movie. So imagine my surprise when I looked at Rotten Tomatoes and found out it has only a measly 17 percent. I couldn't help it and read some of the reviews. I wondered what exactly were those esteemed critics complaining about. Let's see.No originality– true, but then again I have yet to see a Hollywood sci-fi YA that is <more>
original. Somehow this didn't bother them during Hunger Games or Divergent. Love triangle– except there isn't one. Ben and Cassie have one short scene in the beginning. She has a crush. How unusual for a teenage girl. And that's it. After this they only meet at the end of the movie and there is no romantic tension whatsoever. She's no longer interested in him, he was never interested in her. At the beginning we also see scenes of Cassie with her best friend, Cassie at school, Cassie with her family, Cassie playing soccer – so obviously that scene with Ben was there to simply show that she's a normal girl and to introduce Ben as a character.Similarity to Twilight, Evan as a stalker type – Yeah, for about 5 seconds in a flashback that really had to be there to show the moment he first saw her.With the exception of a few scenes, the movie only shows destruction in the US, even though the problem is worldwide– the movie budget was 38M. Enough said.The movie's cliché romantic scenesyes, but nowhere near Twilight level. Actually scenes between Peta and Gale talking about Katniss in Mockingjay 2 were way more cringe worthy than this. Also one might get the impression those scenes take the whole second half of the movie, while it's in fact about 15 minutes of screen time. Getting your gunshot wound stitched is not a romantic scene.The movie is like an AD for NRA National Rifle Association – because I guess it's a really bad idea to give your daughter a gun in a post-apocalyptic world where aliens invade the Earth.The all-white cast. Yes, I will open this can of worms. This movie dared to exclude the obligatory minor role the talented non-white actors usually get. On purpose? In the book, the first thing you'll read after the title is Hawking's quote about Columbus and Native Americans. So the casting choice could very well be a reference to that and western Europe's colonization of other countries centuries ago. To make people think that maybe screwing with other nations isn't the best idea just like H.G. Wells did in War of the Worlds. But let's hate this movie anyway, because "I see white people."So the most disappointing about this otherwise quite entertaining movie, as long as you like the genre, is the laziness of its reviewers. It looks like all the things the critics wanted to write about the YA franchise for a while were crammed into the reviews of the Fifth Wave. Therefore it gets a 10 to compensate for all the nonsense I read.
This review is from my daughterThis a great movie for family . I absolutely loved it, it is now one of my favorite movies .Please don't listen to any of the bad reviews . I hope they make the next two books into movies as well I can't wait to see what happens .Even though they don't show real aliens I was on the edge of my seat from the beginning of the movie until the end of the movie .I loved all of the characters especially Evan .When I came home I was frantically texting all my friends telling them they had to go see this movie right away
"Everyone's a critic" (by ClSnyd)
I mean seriously, why is everyone attempting to be a professional critic with such high standards for every movie made?! This movie was entertaining and followed pretty closely to the book and yet still getting such bad reviews! Why? For the one person saying they won't take their kid bc they don't want their kid to think its okay to get implanted with a microchip. Are you kidding? You know this is a movie about an alien invasion right? Not exactly a guide to how to live your life under normal circumstances. You don't want your kids wielding guns? AGAIN, ALIEN INVASION! It's <more>
not like this is teaching your kids to have guns during all situations. get a grip, this is a movie.. Chill out.
Chloe Grace Moretz is the best again! (by phd_travel)
Of all the actresses to do YAF movies, Chloe Grace Moretz is the sweetest and most convincing of the bunch. She has the rare gift of being able to do both action and romance. She makes the character surprisingly affecting quite quickly in the movie. Her grief and anxiety are believable as she searches for her little brother and somehow manages to keep his teddy bear intact throughout. She has chemistry with her co stars Nick Robinson of Jurassic World and Alex Roe. Liev Schreiber actually is well cast for a change - his face suits his role.The story starts off impressively. The disaster <more>
scenes and waves of destruction are effective, exciting and grandly done. The middle section is a little slower when the training a bit like Divergent starts and the romance blossoms. The fighting and shooting are big budget action movie standard and well done considering it's kids who are doing the fighting.As the plot twists the story makes sense in it's own way and is clear enough to follow. I found it more palatable than the Hunger Games which has a rather sickening premise kids killing each other, and easier to relate to than the Divergent series which is rather monotonously dominated by fighting and training.Go see it - it's entertaining and enjoyable. Hope it does well enough to ensure the sequels are made
fast paced, futuristic, and nicely done (by asinyne)
I went to check this movie out not knowing what to expect. The reviews were not that great so I hoped for the best and definitely found myself entertained. The story is solid and pretty original despite what some have said on here. The future is a scary thing and we know sooner or later some truly bad stuff is gonna start happening around us. This flick gives us some idea of the possibilities. The sequence where the army shows up to "help" was especially well done and creepy. Stuff just like that has happened all over the world many times in the past and even today. The chaotic <more>
results of a world turned upside down are pretty well realized and the acting was fine although not a lot was asked of the cast. I think most people will like this, its action with sci fi and a bit of 1984 thrown in to make you shiver a bit. A good one. Probably intended for a younger audience, like most movies, but not a bad choice for adults who enjoy futuristic books or movies.
First, this seems to be a movie where the critics went into the film expecting to hate it, and so that's the movie they saw. Critics far too often think only of themselves, and not how the rest of us may view a film.Second, seems like far too many viewers rely on critics to shape their own view, and so half the viewers hated it, too. This is unfortunate, as I recommend seeing this film. It remained true to the book, was well acted, and had a pacing that kept me engaged. I was unsure of how Moretz would do didn't seem the Cassie type , but after a few minutes, she had me convinced. To <more>
those who say "they've seen this all before," then I'm sure they think all sci-fi is exactly the same, all horror is the same, etc. There is humor, tension, and excitement that is well worth seeing. This movie was far better than the last two Hunger Game installments, in my view.
Good alien invasion - end of the world movie (by mrohlee)
I went with the expectation of an end of the world movie and it delivered. I am surprised by some of the other reviewers who apparently went with the expectation of not liking it. If you saw the trailer and it looked good you should go see it. In this case the aliens show up and destroy the earth's civilization without much effort. Some alien invasion movie have them show up just a generation or two ahead and the humans are able to make a fight of it. In this case there is no fight. It winds up with a few human survivors scattered around and since the aliens can appear like humans it has <more>
a Walking-Dead type feel where you can't trust anyone.Chloe Moretz was great in the main role. The only problem with that was that she pretty well out-shown the two leading men. In their defense one of them was so devastated by the deaths he went by the name "zombie".Aside from that the whole apocalypse scenario was well done and there were a couple of twists and you could pretty much see coming but they were still well done. The only problem for me was the sudden ending which resolved a few things but obviously was intended to spark a sequel.So if you like apocalypse movies and or Chloe Moretz you should enjoy it.
I am seeing a lot of critical and negative reviews about this Film.I actually enjoyed it even after I realized it was more of a Young Teen adult Family movie. The special effects were great, Cinematography good, except some of the night fight scene's were botched. Acting was good for the most part as well.So, to the critics I say, You are just upset because there weren't any large Breast or nudity, No gay love scenes and no catastrophic Zombie Head explosions that cover half a football field, and the eye balls come to a screeching halt just short of the cup at the putt putt golf <more>
course. This is actually a Movie I could take my grand kids to, with the whole family, which these days is really hard to do. Either Older folks are falling asleep in their chair or the Kids are traumatized for a month with nightmares. As for the teens over 14-15? you might get an answer if you can get their heads out of their phones long enough to get more than a Shrug and a "WHAT EVER". As far a predictable??? Not to many movies out there these days that people cant have it figured out long before the end. I think its time to flush the writers toilet and bring in some new talent. ALL in ALL I enjoyed it.
