The plot of the movie

The girl is in high school, is a cheerleader of the football team and secretly sighs on the footballer Ben Parish. But the alien ship that appeared over the city crossed out a peaceful life and hopes for the future.
The first wave from the aliens: the shutdown of all electronics. There is no connection, traffic lights, radars, control panels do not work. Mass accidents and catastrophes are taking place. The Sullivan family moves out of town.
There they are caught by a second wave – a tsunami. Large coastal cities are washed from the face of the Earth. Cassie and her family manage to survive.
The third wave is bird flu. It is modified by aliens, so there is no vaccine from it. People are dying, including Cassie’s mother. Oliver Sullivan takes the children and goes to the camp, where all the survivors gather. The father punishes Cassie not to trust anyone and gives her a gun.
The military arrives in the camp, they say that the 4th wave has begun. It means that aliens can disguise themselves as people, offering all adults to undergo a check. They take the children to the military base. People do not agree, there begins a shootout, in which all adults die. Cassie manages to escape, she takes the gun and decides that she will fight for her planet. The girl goes in search of her brother.
On a military base, adolescents begin to prepare for military action. Of them, soldiers are made who will kill Others (aliens). But everything is far from being so. Soon the guys will understand that they are the Fifth Wave, and they shoot at people. What awaits Cassie and other teenagers in a difficult struggle? This can be learned by watching the movie The 5th wave in good quality. One can only say that the ending of the film does not give an outcome to the plot, the filmmakers immediately made it clear that The 5th wave of Part 2 will necessarily be released.

The trilogy consists of three novels: the first part is called “The 5th wave”, on its basis and was removed the first part of the picture.
