I Am Number Four centers around two characters named
John Smith (Alex Pettyfer) and his guardian Henri (Timothy
Olyphant). They never get too comfortable living in one
place because they are not from Earth. Their race (the Loreins)
is being killed off by the Mongadorains. The Loreins must
continue to hide from the Mongadorains, a malevolent race
of beings who want to kill the last nine Loreins. Having
killed three of them already, John is next on their list.
John and Henri leave New Mexico and wind up in Paradise,
Ohio. He ignores his guardianís warning not to get involved
with the local people and John enrolls in school. Pretty
soon he begins to like a girl named Sarah (Dianna Agron).
This leads to a group of bullies to not look at John in
the best way. ***
The bullies are far from Johnís mind after the aliens
come to town. This sparks the movie into some intense action
sequences. It is somewhat hard to keep tabs on everything
that is going on, but the action scenes are pretty good
overall. With the movies young actors, the moviemakers set
up for a sequel that could be the launching pad for Alex
Pettyferís career. Overall, this movie is entertaining.
It is a pretty solid movie that is at least worth a look.
Image & Sound:
I Am Number Four does not disappoint as far as imagery
is concerned. It is crisp and detailed. The Blu-ray is a
bit choppy in the darker scenes, especially at night. But
it will please the majority of its' audience. ***
Audio sounds very good and each energy blast will sound
like it is right next to you. Its' audio is in 5.1 surround
and sounds great.
