A flashy, lunkheaded sci-fi extravaganza sure to appeal to teenagers who like their interplanetary warfare bloodless, their high-school soaps squeaky-clean and their numbers countable on one hand.

An enjoyable teen rom-thriller that never swerves off the beaten path but always keeps its footing. Expect a franchise, and career boosts for Pettyfer and Agron.

Sluggish and derivative, I Am Number Four is another elaborate puberty metaphor with superpowers substituting for testosterone.

What we have here is a witless attempt to merge the "Twilight" formula with the Michael Bay formula.

The movie is a mixed bag, with many of the elements fun and intriguing, but since this is also a Michael Bay-produced movie, CG monsters and cartoon bad guys gum up a third act.

Understandably, I Am Number Four has already drawn comparisons to Twilight – both are based on successful teen novels about a loner girl and a stranger with secret powers; both heavily feature a handsome man’s abs – but the similarities are only in the broad sense. Where Twilight’s focus is all about the desperation of all-consuming romance, I Am Number Four is (eventually) more interested in the secret and the possibilities that might present.

Let's see if I got this right. Somewhere out there in another bit of the galaxy, a race of photogenic goodies called the Loriens were attacked and wiped out by the bad guy Mogadorians.

Yes It is worth a look.

This is a movie well made but has a light storyline.I enjoyed it overall but don't expect too much.It has appeal for the younger movie audience.The aliens were a bit of a joke.

if your into action packed, sci-fi special effects this movie is for you, the story-line isnt the best but then its made for teenagers. I dont know why all these critics are hating on this film when they gave avatar 5 stars when its basically the same thing, in fact it ripped of Pocahontas.

Was everything I was expecting, which can be good & bad. Hopefully they will keep the momentum going when they do a part2 (heres hoping) Great action with a good bit of female G.I Jane to match the G.I Joe. Left the cinema feeling money well spent.

Not bad..

..went in not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. I liked the way they explained the storyline at the beginning. The lead actor was a bit wooden but good performances by the supporting cast. I thought the bad guys were a bit of a cliche...you'd think with all their technology they could at least attempt to look like us...and as for travelling...
