I AM NUMBER FOUR is an action-packed thrill ride from start to finish and has lots of action. It has an interesting story that keeps you on edge throughout the movie and almost feels like a sci-fi version of TWLIGHT. This movie is complimented with good acting performances from Alex Pettyfer and Timothy Olyphant and has a CGI dog that transforms into a beastly monster.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie


  1. What a great film a little bit of romance , a little bit of gore and edge of your seat suspense. I really got a fright when the dog morphed in the front seat of the car and became a big monster. I am a sci-fi fan and I really enjoyed this movie.

  2. I really like the movie i liked it when the dog morphed into a dog and when the the football field lights blew up

  3. I agree. This was a surprisingly good movie. It was much better than I expeccted it to be.
