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 won't get into the plot, but let's just say there was enough storyline and interaction between the characters to make me care about them and the fight scenes weren't so over the top as to be boring like in the latest Superman movie. Shocking, because Michael Bay had a hand in this movie, not as a director, producer, but if anyone knows Bay he seems to be over the top with explosions, which to me detracts from the movie.
I recommend this film, because I liked the story. I wonder if they'll do a sequel?
I'm an adult.
Good plot, well made, well thought out. It had some twists that really made the movie worth watching.
I'm sure that we will watch it again!
The film hews closely to the book, which is a good thing. Alex Pettyfer is always nice to look at, but he typically acts with a somewhat blank expression. This is not a problem for him here; after all, he's portraying an alien! Teresa Palmer as Number 6 was just awesome. I had not seen her before, but I can't imagine another actress in the role. I'm thrilled to see she's got a huge slate of films lined up - we already know how well she handles action, but I'm ready to see what else she can do. I don't need to say much about Timothy Olyphant. He can do no wrong with me, and he was great as 4's guardian.
The minor problems I had with the book were less of a problem on screen. One character's seemingly out of the blue personality transplant seemed more believable in the film. And near the end of the book, there seemed to be a constant string of: "Let's put 4 and 6 in some impossible situation, and then let's give them some magical tool to escape. And repeat!" Again, this just did not seem as noticeable and repetitive in the film.
Special effects were adequate, and I think they were what could be expected from an untested first film of a potential franchise, without a huge budget.
The blu-ray offers some nice special features. I'm always happy to see some bloopers!
