I Am Number Four is an American film about an alien that is hiding on Earth from evil bounty hunters, that can only kill each of the aliens in numerical order, and now the first three have been killed, it is the turn of one young man to save himself.

This was terrible. I think this was perhaps one of the most stupid and preposterous stories I have ever seen in a film, and the way it was presented was just horrible.

You can evidently see how this film is designed to try and attract every single teenager in the world, as there is a romance story for anyone who doesn’t like sci-fi, and a sci-fi story for anyone who doesn’t like romance, however the problem with putting them both in, if you don’t like one, you’re going to absolutely hate this film, as the one story just gets in the way of the other.

Also, the story of this film was rubbish. It was so boring to follow throughout, and once the story started to develop into explaining the origins of these bounty hunters, it just became stupid and overly predictable, and due to that, I’m going to give this film a 3.5.
