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.
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.
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.Read more ›
I am Number Four is the story of a young alien who has yet to come into his powers; he is one of 9 gifted alien youngsters who were destined to protect their (now destroyed) planet. After Number 3 is killed by the marauding invading aliens who destroyed Number 4's planet, Number 4 and his protector flee to Paradise, Ohio. Number 4 (now "John Smith") gets involved in some teen drama (football players who pick on the science nerd, Sam [who claims that his father was abducted by aliens]) and falls for the football player's ex, Sarah. While highschool trouble brews, the evil aliens are getting closer and closer to discovering them; when "John's" protector goes missing, he and Sam set out to find him. Things go south from there, ending with a spectacular showdown that includes a fight between dragon-like monsters and a dog/dinosaur-like "pet".
I won't say that any of this is original (it's not; it's mostly all been done somewhere). But it is good, and it's done well.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
