‘The 5th Wave’ is fast-paced, emotional

Commentary by McKinley Webster

   To teenagers, everything feels like the end of the world, but imagine if the end of the world actually happened.
In “The 5th Wave,” you will watch the end of the world unfold through the eyes of many different characters such as Cassie (Chloë Grace Moretz) and Ben (Nick Robinson). Unlike many other futuristic movies like “Divergent” or “The Hunger Games,” the characters in this film once lived in a normal world with normal lives just like us. So if you think this will be another futuristic movie like the ones I listed before, think again.
   “The 5th Wave” is fast-paced, action-packed and emotional. You won’t be bored; the movie also will you leave in suspense many times. You’ll leave the theater wanting to watch it again and eager for the next film to be released.
All of the main characters are teens that once lived just like us before their world was torn down with just five waves of attacks. It’s a must-see for anyone who likes futuristic films filled with suspense.
