I Am Number Four- Review

Am Number Four (Touchstone/Dreamworks)

Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, and for language.

Starring Alex Pettyfer, Timothy Olyphant, Teresa Palmer, Dianna Agron, Callan McAuliffe, Kevin Durand, Jake Abel, Jeff Hochendoner, Patrick Sebes.

Written by Alfred Gough, Miles Millar, and Marti Noxon, based on the novels by Pittacus Lore (pen name for James Frey and Jobie Hughes).

Directed by D.J. Caruso.


Three are dead. He is Number Four. D.J. Caruso (“Eagle Eye,” “Disturbia”) helms a suspense-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.

Our Review: 

This film is was a refreshingly good movie. It's rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, and for language; running time: 1 hour, 48 minutes. I would say I rather enjoyed this movie over the most recent Twilight films. I started out a twilight fan, but I think I am now an "I Am Number Four" fan. I wouldn't say it's my absolute favorite movie. The movie is for the most part good, there are a few flaws that I think are worth mentioning, but I won't even go there. Mostly because, I think it's a great movie. But, the fact that it's similar to many movie plots that are in similar genres. But for the first time, I appreciated that the film had less sexuality. The violence in the film, really wasn't too gory either. My favorite line is when the main character John, says to his first love Sarah, " When we love, we love forever."

Overall, I must say I enjoyed it. It's worth watching.
