'I Am Number Four' Showing on British TVs tonight   'I Am Number Four' Showing on British TVs tonight

Tonight was the first showing of the 'I Am Number Four' movie by D J Caruso on British TV. I never had a chance to see it in the cinema or DVD. We made some popcorn and switched the laptop off and sat to watch it with my daughter Abi. The movie had a fast paced first 2 minutes that suddenly turned into an extremely slow motion for the next 30 minutes and then rewarded us with a spectacular blast of sustained action and the promise of even better to come. This could be the start of something great.

Overall I enjoyed it as a light hearted Sci-fi that is rather like a really good episode of "Smallville": I felt rather silly enjoying it as I am well past high-school age but nevertheless because of the excellent fast action last 30 minutes I must give it a 4 out of 5 star. My daughter that loves "Twilight Saga" liked it because it reminded her so much of the latter.

Summary is that - Three are dead. Who is Number Four? Extraordinary teen, John Smith is a fugitive on the run from ruthless enemies sent to destroy him. Changing his identity, moving from town to town with his guardian Henri, John is always the new kid with no ties to his past. In the small Ohio town he now calls home, John encounters unexpected, life-changing events—his first love, powerful new abilities and a connection to the others who share his incredible destiny. 

Now that it is on TV, it is a must watch movie. Pausing and making coffee in between will really make it an enjoyable watch this weekend.

Director: D.J. Caruso
Writers: Alfred Gough (screenplay), Miles Millar (screenplay), and 3 more credits »
Stars: Alex Pettyfer, Timothy Olyphant and Dianna Agron
