I Am Number Four: Lots of scary-looking aliens

Alex Pettyfer in a scene from I Am Number Four

I Am Number Four – It would be easy to take a number two all over I Am Number Four. The writing is horrendous and most of the acting is terrible (with the exception of Timothy Olyphant, who is great in everything he does). Yet, no matter how much I want to hate it, part of me actually dug the Twilight90210BuffyStar Wars style of it, and the third act was so totally nuts (and loud) it made up for all the other issues. Based on the Pittacus Lore novel, and directed by D.J. Caruso (Disturbia), the film follows an alien (played by Alex Pettyfer) living on Earth disguised as a teenager. He’s being hunted by bigger, more scary-looking aliens as he is one of nine special survivors from his home planet (the first three have been found and killed, he is number four). Of course, he falls in love with a girl (played by Dianna Agron) and decides to fight to protect her instead of running and hiding from the hunters. Keep in mind this is meant for teenagers, who I’m sure will enjoy it much more than anyone over the age of 25.

3 out of 5 stars.
