Enjoyed this a lot. Would like to see a sequel.
I enjoyed this - worth watching.
Loved this movie and the action in it. would be great to see a sequel to this movie to see what all numbers up to nine can do together against the evil. The film is a little predictable though.
If you are a Sci-Fi fan you will most likely enjoy this. It follows the adventures of the main character who is next on the list of survivors (number 4) from an ancient planet, the warriors and creatures from this Ancient planet persue him to eliminate all survivors. Our poor hero tries in vain to settle in various communities but is forced on the run until he meets "Miss Right" and stands his ground and fights the worriers.
We found it is aimed at a teenage audience. Bad, slow, action only in the last 10 minutes. But we did watch it all.
Described as action packed. Well, it was for the last ten minutes. Other than that, this is one of those painfully slow, going nowhere movies, focusing more on the whimsical mood swings of an teenage alien outcast rather than the enemy on his trail. I gave it three stars only because the films antagonists, the Mogadorians, provided the only action, along with excellent character and make up effects.
acceptable. average story, average acting. better movies out there, but i'm not saying don't watch it. the ending looks like it could end up as a tv series.
This was a really enjoyable movie. loved it and would recommend it to anyone
I loved it, Nice beat em up scifi action movie. No difficult plots or anything.Just easy to watch..
I don't even remember watching it lol I think I must have fallen asleep
Almost as good as the book. Good interpretation though.
Well worth the watch. Really enjoyed this movie. Can't wait for the next one.
I simply enjoyed watching this action packed movie.
Science fiction for Twilight fans. Would score it one star, but thanks to the stunning Teresa Palmer, it made the movie that much better :O)
Good movie, I really enjoyed it! Easy to watch.
Interesting concept. Enjoyable. I would have liked for the writers to have established the characters world a little more before throwing in the chaos. Might have made us feel more for them. But all up good movie and worth watching.
Loved it - lots of fun especially for teenagers. Looking forward to a sequel now!
I loved it! Found it very entertaining.
A bit too immature for me. Would be good for the teenagers.
My two kids enjoyed this movie throughly.
Really enjoyed this one.....Hope there is sequel to answer all the open questions tho!!
Watched this on a rainy Saturday morning and enjoyed it. Good fun, light entertainment and sets up well for a sequel.
really great movie, reccomended to everyone! :)
Predictable as any other movies.
Very good, definitely recommend.
This is one for the Twilight and X-Men crowd, everyone else should run and run far, avoid this trash at all cost!
Very enjoyable, different storyline than other movies of similar description
I didin't really know what to expect with this movie as I hadn't read much about it prior to hitting the "play" button.
I really enjoyed the suspense and the story line, the ending leaves it very open for a second movie to come.
Enjoyed the movie.. would recommend for younger audiences who aren't wanting anything deep and meaningful
Loved it. Brilliant film. The whole family enjoyed it thoroughly. I also recommend reading the novel, which is even better.
Twilight meets Superman. Definitely one for teens and twenty somethings.
What a waste of time, - - our time is worth more than this garbage! - we stopped quite early -
Didnt watch it all absolutely terrible movie wouldnt reccommend it
Original sci-fi concept. Features the most attractive aliens since "V", but those ones are the "good guys". In fact even had a knockout alien with an Aussie accent. Teresa Palmer, what a hoot. Some melodrama too, with a gorgeous Dianna Agron. (Lucky alien!). Watch for some light humour given by the head honcho bad guy alien. I say, bring on the sequel!!
Good movie. Would like to see a sequel but don't think it had enough pull at the cinema to justify the cost of one.
Good exciting action Sci-Fi but lacking in scientific explanation and background story. Number Four is from another planet but where it is, who he is, where his powers come from, when and how did he arrive on earth is all left unexplained. There is actually no science in this science fiction movie. So it is more of an action movie using the SF genre as the setting. But then again, so do so many others like the Star Wars movies, though they did make some attempts at scientific explanations.
I Am Number Four is a really good blend of Sci-Fi and Action with high school romance and bullying issues. Alex Pettyfer is fucking hot and is really sweet in the lead role as John Smith. The story was a bit hard to follow as I haven't read the book and it didn't explain everything that was happening but it still made sense in the end. Highly entertaining :)
Entertaining, but left me wanting a bit more for my rental money!
LOVED THIS, what a great movie, Really good for the family we all watched it together, my husband and I and my 2 boys ages 12 and 9, like I said we all enjoyed it very much !!! :-) ;-) :-)
This is a great movie,definitely glad i picked it.
I loved it!! Cant wait for the next one
Highly recommended!. Hoping they make another installment too!
I really enjoyed this movie. The story was intreaging and full of action. Im really hoping that they bring out the next installment so we can meet the other remaining numbers and continue the adventure. I will be keeping my eyes open for that :o)
worth watching and thoroughly enjoyed movie
Great movie, a light SiFi film that is enjoyable
Surprised by this film, the story was really unusual and unique. Acting was believable.....everyone has seen a bully like that 'butthead' at school.....we only wish that an alien monster could have scared him into a better person too.
Not bad at all.
Pretty good movie. Would suit teenage audiences best.
Thsi movie started out a little slow, but gradually got more interesting towards the end. A typical Michael Bay production with explosions and great graphics, however i thinik the storyline could have been a tad bit better. If you like sci-fi then this movie is worth a look. Stay with it as it does get more interesting about 1/2 way through
Quite enjoyed this film. Liked the performances of all the actors, especially the Aussie, Teresa Palmer, although you mostly don't don't see her character till the end. They don't really explain much about where the aliens come from, wish they'd spent the first 10-20 minutes explaining more.
I kinda like this film its different, great special effects hope the next film will be better.
Entertaining film - and lead guy was v.good.
a little bit weak, but still entertaining
really worth watching. thoroughly enjoyed
I didn't really know what to expect with this movie - luckily. I didn't really enjoy it and the plot seemed to drag on for ages, I think I actually fell asleep as I don't remember some of it
I thought that the flick was going to be a slow and standard movie, then it kicked into gear with great special effects, and it moved up tempo. In the end I thought it to be quite enjoyable, so I was it twice in the same day. It's a movie that I would buy and watch it over and over again.
2 star rating for the most part (teenage love story with alien/sci-fi theme) but warmed to 4 star near end. Unfortunately finished as started. (average 3 star watch overall; a bit boring). I rated 4 star in the end because i liked the alien content, this was good viewing
i was a little disappointed i thought it would be better
fantastic movie! great plot, action with science fiction themes really looking forward to hopefully there being further installments!
absolutely loved this show
When i saw the ad for this i thought it would be pathetic....proved me wrong 4 stars !
Would be good to watch this on a 3d screen. Good cinematography!
Science fiction, hot guys, awesome story line, great powers, I'm in love ???
Wasn't sure if this was going to be my type of movie until about 1/2 hour into the flick. I hadn't read any reviews and had no expectations. Ultimately - it has probably landed in my top 10 for the year. I hope they make some follow on flicks from it. Watched it twice and would definately watch again.
Not really into Sci Fi, but found the story line interesting. It entertained both my Husband and myself.
am so annoyed i watched the whole thing. What a waste of an hour and half of my life. Predictable, lame and corny.
Really enjoyed this movie ... wonder if there is going to be a sequel
Terrible film. Didn't watch the whole lot. Then again, I am not really a scifi fan, although I don't think it was the genre that let the film down. The teen angst angle was really quite embarrassing.
Not bad film with some hot stars to watch! Entertaining way to spend an hour and a half.
While the target audience is teens and there is an element of romance this is no Twilight: it is far superior, with much more action and a more engaging storyline. Loved the bad dudes.
Fantastic Movie - can't wait to see if they make another one. A
Wanted to give it 3 1/2 stars but could not. Was an entertaining movie with good acting. Was a bit predictable in certain parts but I did not get bored nor did it annoy me so I opted to give it 4 stars in stead. Who ever likes these kind of movies will enjoy this one.
top flick right from get go, good action and special effects, excellent ending
Damn good dvd right from the start. Great effects, great and believable acting and a good storyline. Can't wait to see if there is a sequel made.
Really enjoyed the film and the concept. Well acted with good special effects.
Enjoyed more than expected, good special effects.
extramly good. So much better then I thought it would be. I would recomend this movie to everyone
Oh Alex Pettyfer should have been a shoo-in for the role of Peeta in The Hunger Games. Quite liked this..a mix of relationship & action. Beautifully set up for a sequel - not sure if this is going to happen. Nice to see Teresa Palmer in a kick-some-butt role.
Pure teen movie with only flashes of mediocrity at best. With no big name actors and visual effects that are fairly ordinary by todays standards, where did all the money go???
Most useless film I've seen recently unless you count "Salt". Blah!
Enjoyed the action scenes even though it started out very slowly.
Hope the sequel will leave out the teen puppy love.
We enjoyed this movie, it was pretty entertaining, good to see the guy (Henri) from Hit Man in it. The dog was cute too.
I thought this was the biggest load of rubbish i have seen,obviously designed for for young teenagers, no adult would be interested, I only watched the first half hour before I swithched it off
I find it hard to understand members negative reviews, perhaps they expect far too much from a film. Both my wilfe and I loved it.
Fairly bland film. Main actor very unengaging and boring.
This movie could of been so much more... it had some great action moments that were ham strung by the unrealistic romantic moments that occurred between the leading characters, it made the Alien character look as though he had some weird alien mojo that made women fall for him instantly. Overall though the clunky romantic scenes drew away from a good action film, Im giving it 2 stars
Just didnt quite make it. No excuse for not being a good film - plenty of effort to create a plausible plot and characters, but too heavy handed.
I was not terribly over fussed with this movie, kind of expected more & it wasn't really impressed with the plot or ending
Not the best movies I have ever seen. The storyline was a bit wishy washy.
Really enjoyed a movie I new nothing about
Exciting and action packed, great movie!
Even though we were not the target audience for this movie, we thought it was fantastic and hope there is a sequel. While the key actors do a good job, so too does Aussie Callan McAuliffe who plays the young sci-fi nerd. He should go on from here.
Nothin more i can say but This movie was awesome. I read the book and it reau brought the movie to life. Dont get me wrong u don't need to read the book to like the movie or get what is happening, my partner watched it with me and loved ever action packed minute of it! movie I would suggest to everyone, both young and old. A 5 star movie can't wait for the next book and movie in the series!
Fantastic. There has to be a sequel or I will be very disappointed. Great movie for all the family
This had the potential but didn't quite carry it off. I watched it through to the end, if they can wrangled extra funding for a few more special effects and a slightly better script in the saga they might just pull it off next time.
My teenage daughters really enjoyed it though were disappointed with the end, as there's obviously going to be sequels and they wanted to know the complete ending in this one movie.
Thoroughly enjoyed the movie.
Great movie a real sci fi action packed attention getter. Typical storyline (bit like superman)only it's 9 children with super powers & their guardians are sent to earth to save their species from mass distruction from another threatening alien species that follow them to earth and try to kill them off one by one and the battle takes place in a local suburban high school. Three are killed and two young warriors go in search of the remaining four from their planet. Think the young adults would like this one too as it has a touch of the teenage romance. Hopeing there will be more too follow would be a great series.
I had no idea what this movie was about before I watched it but I was very pleasantly surprised it was a great film and interesting all the way through
it was awesome! very much looking forward to the sequel!
It was a very interesting and your hooked from the beining to the end. Hope they bring out a series of the movie.
I would recommend this movie to my friends to watch.
Fantastic cast esspecially hereing Ausie accent in an American film great scenery
and stunt work love the fight scenes good set up for Numbers 5,7,8 please keep
the original no 4 and 6 keeps contiuety and Dianna Agron is perfect as well as long as she does not sing
Awesome film. Great concept and it kept me on my toes throughout. We hear there will be a follow up too. A great sci-fi that antone can enjoy. Bring on the rest!
Really enjoyed it. Action packed with a bit of Romance
Great if into sci-fi action-sort of thriller then its worth the watch for you. I quite enjoyed it. Could watch it again.
I had low expectations and thus found the movie ok. Better than most teen movies of any genre. Don't expect to much and you will find the movie a good way to pass 90 mins. Special effects were quite good, acting ok, plot pretty thin but does enough to keep you there.
same disc sent to me after returning it.
For all the reviews I've seen trashing this I didn't have great expectations but I really enjoyed this. Good story, easy to watch and enjoy. Lead Alex Pettyfer is quite charismatic and lend a certain charm to an underdeveloped character.
As an older person this was watchable & enjoyable even if far fetched at times. And whilst not a huge sci fi fan, think the special effects were very good. I think it would strongly appeal to teenagers and young adults.
Terrible. Well maybe not the worst ever but it was very cheap, generic, very predictable, boring as hell, It was more of a tweener movie, maybe 12-15 year olds at best, very disappointing. would not pay to watch this movie.
Enjoyable to an extent. Left me feeling like it needed a bit more at the ending to make it satisfying. Not for the diehard thriller/sci-fi/action fans..more so for the younger generation. Yet I must say, if you want something easy to watch and your 30- this is for you.
We loved this movie, fantastic story line with lots of action a real must see!
quite a good movie even with main characters unknown apart from Teresa.
Not good in so many ways.
the book was bad, the movie even worse. Wooden, emotionless and very disappointing
Aimed for the teenage market, for twilight fans. About two types of aliens battle for Earth. That would make a great film but most of the movie is teenagers dealing with teenage problems in school. A lot of non threatening hand holding & smooching for the girls (hey doen't that girl know he is a spaceboy?). One star for the CGI.
It was ok, entertaining enough... probably more of a teenagers movie, but I sat through it and didn't find myself overly bored. I wouldn't say it was fantastic though, ok to watch if you have nothing else to do.
The Second best movie I've ever seen! Great Story, Great Action and Awesome Special Effects! The Haunted House attraction part makes you jump a lot, some of the kids got quite frightened in the cinema.
