Editorial Reviews

Three are dead. Who is Number four? From Director D.J. Caruso (Disturbia), producer Michael Bay (Transformers) and the Emmy-winning writers of TV's Smallville, comes this gripping, action-packed thriller. John Smith (Alex Pettyfer) is an extraordinary teen masking his true identity to elude a deadly enemy sent to destroy him. Living with his guardian (Timothy Olyphant) in the small town he now calls home, John encounters unexpected life-changing events - his first love (Dianna Agron, TV's Glee), powerful new abilities and a secret connection to the others who share his incredible destiny. Complete with deleted scenes and more, I Am Number Four is an explosive suspense-filled ride that will take you to the edge of your seat and beyond.

I enjoy watching science fiction movies but find many of them today so caught up with the CGI that the story line is completely lost in translation, as if the story no longer matters today. I found this movie both entertaining and fun. It had good character buildup and did all of this with the fun of science fiction. A true gem amoung todays films. It was also nice not to have anything I found to be offensive in the movie.

I hope they continue this and build upon the movie with sequals but since I didn't know of this being a major blockbuster I am assuming this is not going to be the case.

I hesitated renting it online when I saw that the initial review were horrible, but I rolled the dice and am glad I watched it. It's not an Oscar-winning performance, and certainly not going to inspire deep, intellectual conversation afterwards....but if you're looking for something entertaining to watch just for fun-- then you'll love this movie.

Great action sequences towards the end, semi-intriguing story, you can answer your text messages and microwave some popcorn without losing track of what's going on on-screen. Unless you're in a film-snobbish mood, this is well worth getting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unoriginal and Entertaining! A Perfect Date Movie February 24, 2011
This is the entertainment business, and you know, they try, but probably the most entertaining thing about this movie was how it came to be. There are a lot of great films based on books, and even more great books deserving film adaptations, but rather than take a literary success and bring it to the big screen, Dreamworks decided to buy the rights to, of all things, I Am Number Four. Oh yeah, and they purchased them a year before it was even published! All because James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces, decided to start a fiction franchise that pumps out books and movies that could be marketed to teens.

But hey, why not? It was bound to be a success. A young man escapes a planet just as it's being destroyed, ending up in a quaint town in Kansas Ohio where he attempts to live a normal life, only to find that he possesses superpowers, which really throw a kink in his small-town romance. That exact story has already worked out once -- why not a second time? All you need to do is get the creators of Smallville to write the script, toss in some beautiful people and a few Michael Bay explosions, and you've got yourself a hit.

I Am Number Four opens on a scene of said beautiful people partying at the beach. Our hero, John Smith (Alex Pettyfer), is having a blast with all his buddies, and even gets invited to a sexy swim with the school hottie, where she delivers such lovely dialogue as "The big dipper. It's my favorite." I doubt she could even name another constellation, but that's neither here nor there, because suddenly a scar on John's leg emits a blinding light, signaling that Number Three is dead.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than a lot of #2 I've seen lately March 15, 2011
Out of 9 Loriens on Earth, there are only 6 survivors. When the alien hunters known as Mogadorians kill the third survivor - killings are sequential - the fourth Lorien knows it's time to put on his track shows. Sounds good, right? Well wait until the YA source material kicks in.

Number 4 is "John Smith" (Alex Pettyfer) a kid whose appearance was perfect for casting purposes, but moronic for plot purposes. You see, John wants to fit in, to blend, to hide in the shadows. Despite his guardian Henri (Timothy Olyphant, who gets far too little screen time) possessing some serious powers and better computer hacking skills than those in Napoleon Dynamite's dreams, John is nonetheless going to stand out since he's the prototype for every "big man on campus" since the 1950s. In their new location, John goes to school and immediately bonds with Sarah (Dianna Agron), the clichéd social outcast who is far too beautiful to actually be a social outcast in any school known to humanity. The two soon spend time together admiring Sarah's photography, John's ability to throw a pigskin a quarter mile, each others' attractiveness. The Twilight formula ensues: staring contests, inane dialogue, more staring. Then the Mogadorians show up to kill John.

We don't really know WHY they want to kill John, or why they're going in order. Maybe it's some sort of celestial Hatfield vs. McCoy thing? We also don't know what's up with the one-by-one approach to the murders. Maybe they're following some interstellar Lorien phone book like Arnold in Terminator? Maybe this is just a poorly done YA version of the Predator series? And that's probably the biggest flaw of this movie. Too many loose ends. There are several more that I haven't mentioned.
