Review: First Wave

Ex con now on the right track Cade Foster discovers something sensational: Aliens are among us, in a genetically cloned form, with the clear intention of subjecting mankind. In order to counteract any possible human resistance, the aliens select 117 human subjects on which they build strategy. The aliens, Gua, destroy Fosterís life as a part of their experiment and manage to make him look guilty of murdering his wife.

Foster is aware of the tests he was subjected to by aliens and manages to escape from their hands. Hunted by the police and a secret government agency, Foster discovers that the predictions of Nostradamus that speak of three invasion that will destroy humanity if blessed men will not stand up against it are very close to reality.

The basic idea of the series is that of one man's quest, Cade Foster, whose wife is killed by aliens planning to invade the Earth. Foster manages to escape the aliens but is framed for the murder of his wife. As a fugitive, he stays in touch with Eddie, a hacker that seems to know his way around the Matrix. Eddie is the one reading from the work of Nostradamus regarding the alien and the one to help Foster in his mission. Cade must prevent aliens conquering the planet. However, the aliens are smart and do not attack right away. At first, sent several alien agents are sent to earth to find weaknesses and prepare the planet for invasion.

The series is not a masterpiece but it is quite enjoyable and has the feel of a well made movie.


The First Wave series deserves to be watched. The lead actor is very charismatic and does an excellent job. Of course, there are some things that could be better, but overall is an entertaining story about a government conspiracy and reptilian aliens planning an invasion.
