I Am Number Four Review
Should you buy a ticket for a movie that didn't really recieve any hype, or are you going to miss out on something actually worth seeing?
I Am Number 4 is a film based on a young science fiction novel by Pittacus Lore. It is the first of a proposed six-book series. The book was published by HarperCollins on August 3, 2010, and has spent 6 weeks on the children's chapter of The New York Times Best Seller list
I convinced by a friend to see it. I wasn't looking forward to seeing this, I didn't want to see it but now I'm glad I did, I would have missed out on something impressive, something funny, something embedded with amazing special effects and well choreographed fight scenes. I Am Number 4 is not a film teenage guys should avoid for fear of it being Twilight-ish. There is no doubt, the film's target audience was teenagers but it wasn't specifically for females, there is plenty for the guys to enjoy. For example, Aliens, Action and Dianna Agron(You know, the hot girl from Glee, don't act like you don't watch it).
Half way through the film, I couldn't help but ask myself: "Where have I seen this before?". And then it hit me, 'Smallville'. The movie had themes that were very prevalent in the first four seasons of the show. Themes like, 'Isolation', 'Growing up', 'Emergence of new abilities', 'Bullying' and 'Romance'. You probably don't want to see this now that I mentioned 'Smallville' aka 'The S*** show' aka 90210 but trust me it is similar to Smallville only 10 times better. It has a bigger budget, It has a British actor who can really act, it has immense action scenes, it's dark, it's serious, it's funny and it has Dianna Agron(You must know who she is!).
I can't tell you everything that happened it the movie because that would spoil it and.......I can't be bothered. But trust me on this, I think you'll like it.
The Movie screams sequel and I really hope it does well in the box office.
Rating: 5 glowing stars out of a possible 5.
Since I didn't tell you much about the plot here is the trailer:
'I Am Number 4' was produced by Michael Bay, directed by D.J Caruso and screenplay was written by Alfred Gough, Miles Millar and Marti Noxon.
