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.
