The movie starts off pretty OK, and the whole different waves stuff was kinda cool to see but it lasts for like 10-15 mins, after which the movie nosedives to an ever increasing oblivion of mediocrity. The acting was bad, Chloe Grace Moretz starring in this movie gave me some hope cause I like her but even she was bad. The action sucked, there was no tension whatsoever and it was bland. The pacing was painfully slow, I was bored AF at times.
The story was really predictable as well. The big twist was so apparent that I saw it coming a mile away. I kept hoping that maybe the movie will pick up the pace or get better a bit, but nope. One of the main characters got an army code-name of Zombie, which was funny cause the dude looked and acted like a zombie through most of the movie. :p
Since it is a YA adaptation, there has to be some sort of romance and boy was it lame and rushed. One moment they just begin getting acquainted and the next they're kissing, like WTF!! Plus, a love triangle is sorta there, and is obviously gonna be a big thing in the sequel, if they make it.
Anyway, I hoped that it will have some good things in it but the movie made it really difficult for me to find any. The okay-ish opening is the only somewhat decent thing in the movie. I can't believe with the setting they have, how in the hell did they made it so boring.
