What’s the movie about?
The sci-fi film “The 5th Wave” is about Cassie (Chloë Grace Moretz), one of the few people who has survived four alien attacks on Earth. Why the aliens attack the earth is not known. Only that much is known: They can disguise themselves as humans. After Cassie has fought her way through some time alone against the aliens, she meets Evan Walker (Alex Roe), the sniper wrestler (Maika Monroe) and Ben Parish alias Zombie (Nick Robinson). From now on they fight together for survival.
