The 5th Wave didn't get the memo
5 second plot: Aliens attack earth. Lots of people die. Cassie survives. Her goal is to find her kid brother. And open up a can of whoop-ass on these aliens b*tches.
5 second review: In this day and age we're used to realistic (zombies are real man, you know it) Walking Dead-style end of the world stories, not this romantic boo-hoo one man (almost) mission crap. I didn't like the kid soldiers and the way the story centers around them. But most of all, I didn't like the fact that there's no ending. You sit through a movie you don't really enjoy very much, and then you finally reach the end. And there isn't one. Not cool.
