The 5th Wave [2016] ★½

 5th wave-teaserThe first science-fiction flop of the year is a dull, uninspired mess that rips off pretty much every “deadly alien attack” movie ever made. Chloe Grace Moretz can’t save a cheesy script, playing a girl who is constantly on the run from an alien attack, as she desperately tries to find her missing brother. The premise couldn’t be more corny, and the result couldn’t be more ridiculous, as we follow Moretz’s character through her long, painfully slow journey that leads to nowhere. The only reason I had any hope was the presence of Chloe Grace Moretz in the leading role, and indeed this gifted actress is the only reason the movie gains an extra half star. The rest is literally a mess from start to finish. What a waste.
