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.

The logic is dodgy, and the most frightening aspect is the sequel promised at the end.
The setting is the sleepy American town of Dullsville.
The young "Four" cast appears to have been plucked from an Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue - which isn't an issue until you realize that the characters they're playing are about as thin as the pages in that Gen-Y fashion Bible.
The door is left wide open for a sequel, but it's hard to imagine there'll be much call for it.
The sci-fi-teen romance I Am Number Four is witless, insultingly derivative, muddy-looking, and edited in the hammering epileptic style that marks so many films produced, as this one is, by Michael Bay.
Granted, I Am NumberFour is a little better and makes loads more sense than Eagle Eye, Caruso's most recent vehicle for comely young actors in peril. But neither one has the sass and pluck of Disturbia. Watch that instead.
I Am Number Four resolves its immediate storylines, while leaving things wide open for a sequel. There's enough energy and personality here to make a follow-up an acceptable prospect.
You could do worse. It's a rather entertaining film, and it doesn't take itself entirely seriously, with plenty of light touches that help to diffuse some of the melodrama.
[I Am Number Four] is a die-cast plastic creation, almost devoid of anything memorable.
Replace the melodramatic vampires and werewolves [from The Twilight Saga] with some equally angsty extraterrestrials and Four is an obvious imitation with faint originality.
Nothing about the movie felt fresh or inventive and it's hard to be interested when you're comparing it constantly to twelve different things that have come before.
A horrible mess that embodes the worst from two different worlds, the most sappy teen romance ever and a souless superhero story. [Full review in Spanish]
I am not that sure on how to feel about this movie, its strange, and there are a lot of moments that make no sense whatsoever. But overall all i can say about this movie is that its okay.
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.
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.
