I Am Number Four
Suteisi rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

"John is an extraordinary teen, masking his true identity and passing as a typical high school student to elude a deadly enemy seeking to destroy him. Three like him have already been killed ... he is Number Four." (From IMDb)

Best. Movie. of. 2011.

So far anyway.

It might be because I haven't been to the cinema much since the New Year, or because I'm a fanatic when it comes to the sci-fi story of a young (hot) male with magical powers, but I really REALLY liked I Am Number Four. I went in thinking it would be more of a kids movie than anythign but to my surprise, it wasn't!

It seems to have gotten ok reviews online (6.5/10, really?) with a good bunch of the reviewers all saying the same thing. For some reason they say the story isn't as great as it could have been, and the characters were lacking personality. Some others even went as far as saying it's "another one of those for Twilight like teenage girls". Well ok. I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I saw this movie with a guy that is your typical macho (hates any type of chick flick and says no movie is a good movie unless there are cars and it goes boom boom), and even he said he liked it.

Personally, I thought the characters were well developped. I liked John right off the start. I thought Henri (Timothy Olyphant, anyone?) should have been included within the story a bit more, especially in the ass kickery department, you know, considering he's supposed to be John's guardian and all. Sam and Sarah were great additions, and Mark just really made you hate his guts.

It's light, magical, has awesome action and most of all GORGEOUSLY AMAZING visuals.

When these kids use their powers, WOAW! It blew my mind!! So much that I wish I had powers like that too. It looks very real without looking tacky.

I don't really have anything bad to say about this movie. If anyone else in this city hasn't seen it yet and would like to go, give me a shout I'll gladly go along with you. Yes, I liked it that much.

when i was at the cinema all the session for the movies i want to watch was too late so i settled for i am number four for the sake of being at the cinema. BUT the movie was awesome! Also quin from glee who is my fave actress is in this. I really like the concept. Comes to think of it have you seen Push? The 2009 movie that has dakota fanning, they have a similar story line. Just a tad bit similar.
