D. J. Caruso’s I Am Number Four is a fun flick that I enjoyed in the theatre and was looking forward to seeing on Blu-ray. When the flick arrived on my doorstep I was pretty excited.

The film is based on a novel by Jobie Hughes and James Frey. It tells of a young alien named John (Alex Pettyfer) who came to Earth to escape a race of evil aliens that killed his people. Only, he’s not alone. There are others like him and as they mature they gain powers that can be used to help them fight off the evil aliens.Along with his protector, Henri (Timothy Olyphant), John travels around the globe trying to go unnoticed. Only once John meets Sarah (Dianna Agron) he decides that maybe running isn’t his only option.

At first I was a little worried when the movie seemed to focus more on the romance than the action, but it didn’t take long for the it to switch gears and become an honest to goodness scifi action ass-kicker. Also, Teresa Palmer (Number 6) is stupid hot (just saying).
