The 5th Wave review – sci-fi war games with few surprises

24 January 2016 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Chloë Grace Moretz battles teen-hating space invaders in this clunky adaptation of a Ya fantasy

This sci-fi fantasy, from the first book in Rick Yancey’s ongoing Ya series, mimics the riffs (feisty heroine, hunky boys, dystopian setting, devious adult corporations, potential love triangles etc) but lacks the cinematic legs of The Hunger Games or The Maze Runner. Chloë Grace Moretz is the likable teenager who finds herself fighting a guerrilla war when space invaders (“we call them ‘others’”) terrorise the planet and the army starts rounding up kids to fight in an ugly war. The British director J Blakeson, who worked low-budget wonders on The Disappearance of Alice Creed, handles the shifts and twists of the plot efficiently enough, but the result remains lumpen and crucially lacking in surprise.

At best, this yearns for the youthful grit of Kevin Macdonald’s How I Live Now crossed with the disaster »
