I Am Number Four

Aliens walk among us. Refugees from another world and another war, Number Four (of nine) and his protector move from place to place in the United States trying to hide from another alien race hunting them to extinction. In Paradise, Ohio Number Four finds his true love and acquires his powers, learning that his destiny is more than just hiding in the shadows.

ClearPlay In Action!

The PG-13 I Am Number Four sports a fair amount of language, including at least nine “S” words and several others in the mix. There are also a few violent spots with some impalings and disturbing images. With ClearPlay in place this movie would be appropriate for teens and up.

Four Stars for I Am Number Four?…

Critics, in general, didn’t like I Am Number Four, but I found myself sufficiently entertained. Part sci–fi, part superhero, part teen romance, part action film, this movie covers a lot of bases and doesn’t do it perfectly, but it’s a world better than the awful Green Hornet and had enough heart and frantic action to sell it to me. It’s main flaw is that it was clearly made with a sequel in mind, meaning the character and story development aren’t as deep as they should be and a few loose ends aren’t tied up. If you are a fan of any of the genres listed above, however, give it a try some boring weekend.

Brian Fuller— ClearPlay Chimera

Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, and for language.; 109 min; Directed By D.J. Caruso
