Though geared towards a young adult audience, I Am Number Four entertains with sleek special effects, scary aliens, and superhero action.
| Original Score: 7/10
A solid but unspectacular story that is aided geatly by its four likeable leads.
| Original Score: 3.0/5
| Original Score: B-
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.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
An entertaining film that lacks maturity and expression.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
I Am Number Four carefully balances spectacle and story, emerging as a competent start-of-the-year blockbuster.
| Original Score: 3/5
I walked into this movie a skeptic and left a true believer.
This brave new world of sci-fi adventure, while it seems hopelessly derivative, has more originality than meets the eye ... if you read the book first.
It's absolutely empty and derivative and kind of a blast and so what? Pass me the Junior Mints.
Sci-fi thriller is explosive fun (but take care the wooden leads don't give you splinters)
Number Four is familiar but fun.
| Original Score: 3.0/4.0
'Roswell' meets Critters (and a dozen other ideas)... decidedly more 'Aliens' ass kicking than 'Twilight' tweening.
An entertaining addition to the super-teen trend...
Unlike the Twilight series that is also aimed primarily at 13-year-old females and has brought vacuity to an even lower level than one would expect, this can appeal to a wide audience, including adults.
It deserves an audience Numbering many.
The action is well-done, some things are downright silly but I didn't have a problem entering into the spirit of things.
There's a cute dog, and it does get quite exciting in parts, especially when monsters appear near the end.
This number is definitely not up.
There's enough interplay between the characters to make this bearable and it builds to a reasonably entertaining effects-heavy climax.
