Produced by Michael Bay (Transformers franchise) and directed by D.J. Caruso (Disturbia), I Am Number Four is an action-packed story about a young man trying to hide his true identity to evade a deadly enemy seeking to destroy him.
Alex Pettyfer (Beastly) stars as John, one of the few survivors remaining from his planet. With his earthly protector Henri (Timothy Olyphant), John is forced to move to a new town when his identity is discovered. Despite Henri’s pleas that John live a quiet life, he quickly falls in love with Sarah (Dianna Agron of “Glee”), a girl he meets in high school, and his strange and emerging powers draw attention from those that want to kill him.
A lack of closure is likely based on plans for a sequel, but a modest box office draw may put a damper on those efforts. The movie is entertaining during its duration but simply lacks completeness.
Teresa Palmer stars as Number 6, another survivor from John’s home planet who joins in for the most dramatic and action-filled sequence in the movie with a shootout at the local high school.
Action-adventure fans can appreciate the merits of I Am Number Four. Just realize that you are likely going to watch the credits role and wonder what you missed out on. The emerging romance between John and Sarah is abruptly cut off and the climactic battle between John and the evil villains ends with relatively minimal tribulation.
