I've been waiting forever to watch this movie! I'm so glad I did. Now, I won't bore you with stories or anything extra, so I'll just get to the point here....
It was a movie packed with awesome. The action sequences were AMAZING! Good heavens, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. The digital graphics in the movie are outstanding. The light coming from his hands, Number Six's sweet moves, and then...the burning of the football field. Oh. My. Gosh. They did such an amazing job! It looked like the apocalypse had come, or something! Just...loved it.
Now, Alex Pettyfer...he's pretty amazing. I loved his acting and I he's just downright hot. The most interesting character though, was Henri. Timothy Olyphant is such an interesting looking person and he was a great choice to cast.
However, the bad guys of the story? They completely failed. The Mogadorians(sp?) were supposed to come off as completely menacing and hideous creatures. They were more....like the laughing stock. As for the romance...too much like Twilight to suit my taste.
Now, I'm eagerly waiting for the sequel now, which really needs to hurry up and hit the theatres! BUT....(yes, the but)..it appears that the sequel to I Am Number Four -- supposedly titled The Power of Six -- is now 'shelved'. Many movie sources say that the writer doesn't want to produce a sequel to this. So why leave such a cliffhanger? I have no clue. But I DO think the movie is better than a lot of critiques out there.
What are your thoughts?
I give it four sporks!
