I Am Number Four (2011)
Critic Consensus: It's positioned as the start of a franchise, but I Am Number Four's familiar plot and unconvincing performances add up to one noisy, derivative, and ultimately forgettable sci-fi thriller.
Three are dead. He is Number Four. D.J. Caruso ("Eagle Eye," "Disturbia") helms an action-packed thriller about an extraordinary young man, John Smith (Alex Pettyfer), who is a fugitive on the run from ruthless enemies sent to destroy him. Changing his identity, moving from town to town with his guardian Henri (Timothy Olyphant), John is always the new kid with no ties to his past. In the small Ohio town he now calls home, John encounters unexpected, life-changing events-his first love (Dianna Agron), powerful new abilities and a connection to the others who share his incredible destiny. John (Alex Pettyfer) is an extraordinary young man, masking his true identity and passing as a typical student to elude a deadly enemy seeking to destroy him. Three like him have already been killed...he is Number Four. Based on the book by Pittacus Lore.-- (C)Dreamworks … More

Critic Reviews for I Am Number Four
Though geared towards a young adult audience, I Am Number Four entertains with sleek special effects, scary aliens, and superhero action.
A solid but unspectacular story that is aided geatly by its four likeable leads.
I really hope a sequel comes along to answer our questions and close up some loose threads.
It's very silly, but also thoroughly entertaining because it gives us exactly what we want.
The epic computer-generated alien smackdown is settled in a battle zone well known to any teen: high school hallways and the football field.
Audience Reviews for I Am Number Four
A watchable sci fi story with TV teen style acting. Really i could have seen this being on the little screen be it either Disney or CW or something or other. While not bad and not a horrible idea. It really seemed very small for the big screen.
Decent Sci-Fi young adult adaption that falls short in the world-building aspect. The special effects are great, especially during the spectacular showdown, but you hardly get a background for any of the characters, much less the world and conflict they are coming from. That takes some of the fascination away for the topic of aliens with powers being among us and leaves the film somewhat flat. It's still pretty entertaining, with lots of attractive newcomers and at least makes you curious about seeing or reading more of this.
Somewhat interesting plot that could have been more fun than it actually was. Then again, I could look at Pettyfer and drool for hours on end. Good movie? M'eh. But I'd see it again.
