I Am Number Four (a movie review by Chris Krueger)

As much as I love movies I decided to go spontaneously to KC on Friday to go see a movie. Of course there were a couple movies out that i wanted to see, but this is the one i chose first. So i will do my best to remember my reactions. Plus there will be some SPOILERS in here so if you haven't seen the movie, and you are wanting to see it bad, then i recommend you not read this review just yet. That's your choice.

Overall- anyways to get started i just wanted to say this wasn't a bad movie, or even a great one. In all the aspects were good in some way, but doesn't surpass any phenomenal movies like Inception. In the movie there were somethings that I did not understand, I'll explain later about this. Overall i would have to give this movie a 5 out of 10.

Story- well the story is sorta straight forward. It kind of reminded me of the Predator movies, in a sense, because they had aliens chasing down other aliens.  There were a few plot holes where I had no idea what was happening or just seemed a little illogical. In the beginning you see these people get attacked in some tropical forest. I say this is one big plot hole because you only get told that the 2 people in the "bamboo hut thing" get attacked. An illogical thing about this thing also why did the guy have a knife? could he have some other selection of weapons. This goes for the other character too that is the protector. Another illogical thing in the movie was the alien creature. They explained what it is, by giving its name, but not giving any more info on it. So how could it turn into a dog or even a lizard. That seems kind of stupid not too put that info in there. Another plot hole i noticed is how do the 7 alien people get the scares on their legs? That doesn't make any sense. I could have a whole list of questions if i just went on. As for a story overall it was ok. Did not seem like it was original and seemed to be stolen from some book. I wasn't paying attention to some of the credits and stuff to really know if this is true. But I thought it was a ok story.

Characters- There is not much i can say here, but i think they did a ok job. I barley saw some underacting, but it wasn't too bad. As for the bad guys, I think they may have overdone their part a bit, but they definitely got their point across. So sorry If i don't have too much, but that is what i have to say.

Script- as for this aspect it was not to bad. there were still think i questioned about it especially a select few lines, but i thought it went ok.

As to end its review i want to remind you that over all I gave it a 5 out of 10. This is probably a one time see in my standards, but don't let this make you dought seeing this movie once or multiple times. And somehow i also found myself, in my head of course doing a RiffTrax commentary on this movie. If you don't know what RiffTrax is you should look it up. But i found myself doing this commentary thought the movie and it actually made the move somewhat more enjoyable to watch. So as to officially end this I will bid you all adieu.
