What you need to look for: Visual effects 

What you don’t need to look for: Originality 

Sexy teenager with super powers, high school love story, evil aliens – sound familiar? If you’re into the i-am-number-four-1.jpgwhole “Twilight” like teen adventures then “ I Am Number Four” is not such a bad pick for you. It borrows many elements like teenage angst, high school backdrop, cute love story etc. from the many young adult movies out there. The sci-fi elements although remain unexplained to a large extent. Even with some slick action sequences, it fails to impress at least as far as originality goes. But it makes up for shortcomings by maintaining a good pace and some stunning visuals.  

The story follows alien boy John Smith(Alex Pettyfer), from the planet Lorien. His planet was destroyed by the evil creatures from Mogador(who look like Lord Voldemort with gills and tattoos). John Smith is amongst the last of his race. To be precise, he is number 4. They are 10i-am-number-four-movie-photo-3.jpg specially gifted kids who have the potential to save planet earth from blood sucking Mogodorians. Numbers 1,2 and 3 have already been killed, which means number 4 is next. Smith and his protector Henry(Timothy Olyphant) are now on the run. They set up base in the small town of Paradise, Ohio. At Paradise High School he meets Sarah(Dianna Agron). Sarah and Smith’s friendship soon blossoms into love. Simultaneously Smith is also discovering his super powers(in full Peter Parker style). After saving her from bad guys and picking up fights with the school quarterback, Smith draws enough attention to invite Mogodorian trouble. Enter Number 6 (Teresa Palmer), a bike riding, smart talking, trigger happy girl who comes to the aid of her fellow Lorian. What ensues next is a sequence of high powered action sequences complete with full blown visual effects that probably comprise of the most interesting part of the film.  

Despite being a patchwork of borrowed concepts, “I Am Number 4” still makes for a good watch for the young adult/sci-fi fans.

Verdict: If you loved the "Twilight" saga, you might just enjoy this.
