I got the chance to watch The 5th Wave early from Penguin Teen Australia and Dymocks.
First I want to say that I have not read the books. So I went into the movie blind - I knew things that happened because I did a little research but other than that I didn’t know all too much.
I liked The 5th Wave. I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate. It was a pretty okay movie. I really didn’t know what to expect, but I think I wanted more. It rather lacked and I was just waiting for something to really happen and it didn’t really happen until the last 15 minutes or so of the movie.

I did like humour though. It might not have meant to be funny, but there were scenes that you couldn’t help, but laugh at. It was those really teenager scenes. Where everything is awkward and weird but it felt like it was like real
