Movie Review: I Am Number Four

Thanks to Harper Collins Canada I had the chance to see I Am Number Four tonight, at the media premiere, and I wasn’t disappointed!

The opening scene is breath-taking and the whole story goes by at the speed of light. I went with a couple of friends, and one of them mentioned she thought the beginning was a bit slow because John (Alex Pettyfer) moves in a new town, is the new guy at school etc. But I think it was necessary means to introduce the story and some main characters.

The lore was interesting, and it’s unfortunate they have to cut it short in book to movie adaptation. Enough info was available though to follow the story without having read the book first.

I liked the casting, I think every actors delivered their characters well, but unfortunately I haven’t read the book yet (but I REALLY want to! I need to get a copy) so I can’t really compare the two.

I though it was a good scifi/action movie, and I’m looking forward to the next one. I left with a few questions still, but I guess that’s what the book is for!

I strongly suggest you guys to see it!
