Four waves of increasingly deadly alien attacks have left most of Earth decimated. Cassie is on the run, desperately trying to save her younger brother.

Avid readers know, that book to movie screenplays do not always work out – That does not seem to be an issue with The 5th Wave; I took my teen, who is obsessed with this series to see the movie, I on the other hand have not read this series. We both enjoyed the movie. Sure some scenes were re-imagined (more than likely to keep the PG -13 rating) and some where left out completely. Did it stop my daughter from enjoying the movie – no, she liked the changes they made but was a bit aggravated her favorite scene was left out. I, as someone who had not read the books, did not feel “left out, confused” the story-line was pretty straight forward and I had figured out the main plot twist early on, so it wasn’t a huge surprise. If you enjoy a good scifi flick – check this one out, I do not think you will be disappointed.
