[Movie Trailer] - #9 The 5th Wave

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

Title: The 5th Wave
   Director: j. Blakeson
   Author: Rick Yancey
   Release Date: January 2016

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

From the Book:
     After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

     Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker.

     Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.


     This is the movie I have been looking forward to for a long, long while. When I read the book, it was mainly because the movie was just announced, afterwords I understood why the announcement came. The book is just fantastic and the trailer seems to play right into the book. I feel that the director is going to try to follow the book, which is a common theme now since some of the more current movies have been doing that and doing rather well. They also have ChloĆ« Mortez who is a fantastic young actress, and I love to see her and the movies she plays in.

     There isn't much for me to gripe about in this movie, other than the dual perspectives seeming to be completely lost on me. I love how the book and everything just seems to come together. Okay, yeah, they did tone back some of the waves, but in all honesty the book's waves were just brutal, I am not saying that it's a good thing, but I haven't seen the movie yet. The feel of the movie is sort of Walking Dead like, but there's this urban, rebel fighting theme that seems to just permeate throughout the entire movie.

     I am just going to start a countdown someplace, we'll get this going so the movie will get here faster. I honestly am looking forward to this beyond anything else at the moment.
