I Am Number 4

This film is base on science fiction novel by Pittacus Lore (a pseudonym for james Frey and Jobie Hughes who collaborated on this book). I haven't read the book and probably wont read it. Why I want to watch this movie in the first place? Because they did mention that No 1 is dead in Malaysia. Somehow they didnt show it in the movie. It's weird coz 2 movies I watched this month mentioned about Malaysia. Why suddenly? hehe.

Anyway, the starting (about first 5 mins) was pretty suspense, the beast horrified me a lot. It makes me eager to watch what's gonna happen. For the next hour, the story was a bit boring, it's about Number 4 (John Smith) trying to blend in with his new town, new school and new friends.. not to forget new girl - seems so predictable. It makes me forgot that this movie is about battle between aliens.. it does make me sleepy.
After a while, John finally discovered his new ability - torch light hand! haha. From this moment, he learned how to control his power and understand what was his purpose and why those Mogadorians trying to kill him.

Due to his stubbornness, the Mogadorians manage to tracked him and his guardian was killed by them. He realised that he must get revenge thus he plan to track the Mogadorians. However the Mogadorians manage to trapped him in the school.. This part is a bit stupid for me, cause instead of running away, he wants to follow his girl to school for -- I dont know why.

Ok, so the best part started finally. They were attacked by Mogadorians and their horrified beast. John received help from a girl who turns out to be No 6 and his own beast. The time his dog change to be a beast is really scary to me hahaha..
Then, the battle is on.. bang booom bang... they succeed. The short battle is really awesome to me thanks to those beast. So at the end I think it is quite interesting and i was hoping they will continue to the next chapter.

Last but not least Alex Pettyfer is HOT.
