Download I Am Number Four (2011) movie online.
First of all, I d like to mention here that I am a crazy fan of sci-fi fantasy books and also on the movies based on them. So with Lord of the Rings and Narnia out of the way, and Harry Potter getting over soon, The Lorien Series seemed like the next big thing for me. So, I devoured the book hungrily and eagerly looked forward to the movie.
Okay, so we all know that movies based on books are never satisfying. But all the series I have watched before this one were moderately enjoyable at least.But I am number 4??? Ummmm, the whole movie can be described as a hurried up summary of the book. The start is wonderfully promising. But its 2 mins of euphoria followed by 2 hrs of sleepiness. The pace set at the start is not followed up AT ALL.
Except for number 4 and Henri the rest of the cast were terrible. Dianna Argon, I LOVE yu in glee. But seriously, what the hell were you mumbling for the entirety of the movie? Yu re Sarah Hart, not Quinn Fabray. I think yu wandered into the wrong set by mistake. And Jake Abel as mark? Omg, he looked more nerdy then sam for gods sakes! Hello! Yu re supposed to "look" like a bully!
This movie works very well as your run of the mill good versus evil alien story with a unoriginal teenage romance forced in. But the Book wasn't about that at all. The uniqueness of Lorien, the visual beauty of the planet, the epic fight between the peoples, the crystals used for healing and strengthening the legacies and a flash back of Number 4's life on Lorien were not included at all. This movie just seemed like a launch for Alex Pettyfer (Because I've sure as hell not heard of him before). Yes, he is super cute and does a decent bit of acting too. See? this movie was made only for the teen girls to ring in the cash registers.
What I disliked immensely, was that this movie did not make even a single attempt to salvage the uniqueness of the novel and keep it separate from the myriad alien/fantasy trash out there. Hell, it felt like Twilight. Only there weren't vampires, but aliens. The mogadorians looked like a psycho version of the dementors to me(I think I prefer them to the Mog!)
And the incidents happen so quick, that if yu haven't read the book yu are totally lost. I was soo looking forward to watch the re-enactment of the book on the big screen. All I got was a mashed up number of incidents piled in the wrong order. And everything happens in such a hurry, yu think that a crazed man was running behind the director with a Gun pointed to his head screaming " Finish it up man!"
But I will include some positive points
- Soundtrack- Loved the music. Some were slipped in the wrong moment. Some were unnecessarily extended till yu nodded off. But the songs itself individually were absolutely beautiful.They should take a lesson from the directors of Twilight on how best to exploit the soundtrack to better a movie!
- Alex Pettyfer- Heart heartbreakingly cute. Hes the only reason I ll watch this movie again (That is, if he doesn't star in the sequels).
All said and done, I will definitely continue to follow the series and pray that the next movie is made well.
My advice? If u want to see a movie where yu can have a nice long conversation without missing much of the plot (which is what I did) and gawk at Alex Pettyfer for most of the time, then this is the perfect movie for you. Or else stay at home and watch Harry Potter 1-6 again.
You've probably seen the ads for I Am Number Four movie. The TV spots seem to be interesting and confusing at the same time since they leave you with more questions than anything, which can be a good thing. Trailers that reveal everything about the film they're promoting are the worst. However, Michael Bay's involvement (despite only being a producer) probably puts many off right from the start considering all the Platinum Dunes remakes Bay has produced over the years; effectively killing whatever interest they may have originally had. Unfortunately the film seems to leave you with just as many questions that you walked in with.
Download I Am Number Four 2011 is based on the novel sharing the same name by Pittacus Lore (the pen name for authors James Frey and Jobie Hughes). It's also supposed to be the first in a six-part series. The film version of I Am Number Four movie online feels like it doesn't explain half of the things it needs to. The film leaves you with quite a few unanswered questions and while it's obvious a sequel will more than likely be on the cards if the film is a success, I Am Number Four movie download doesn't really feel like an origin story. Well, it actually feels like you walked into an origin story about twenty minutes too late like you missed the entire back story or something. Interestingly enough, half of the questions you may have can probably be answered with the Wikipedia page for the novel. Why the film doesn't touch on some of these is kind of a mystery though.
The film also left me feeling questionable regarding my opinion of the film. There were certain parts that were enjoyable, but it also felt kind of terrible at the same time. The film revolved around high school more than expected. It felt like the film could've easily been called something like, "My high school boyfriend glows in the dark and I don't know why." The whole side-plot of Sam's father seemed kind of pointless, as well. So he discovered Loriens and decided to help them before disappearing. Why should we care? That's never really explained. Sam finally realizing his dad's fantasy becoming a reality and his desire to find him made sense, but why the film had to keep coming back to his dad helping the aliens only for it to go nowhere just seemed unnecessary.
The action scenes are probably the film's highlight. Surprising for a film produced by Michael Bay, eh? Loud, a heavy use of special effects, and explosions and massive destruction around every corner are enough to satisfy even the most deprived action junkie. But the shaky camera technique rears its ugly head to ruin something decent yet again. Whipping the camera back and forth probably didn't help matters either. It was the first special effects heavy film for D.J. Caruso though, so maybe that had something to do with it. Speaking of special effects and awkward camera techniques, the Mogadorians' beasts look incredibly similar to the Cloverfield monster if it had flying squirrel capabilities. The battle scenes between John's shape-shifting beagle Bernie Kosar and one of the beasts is both sour and sweet at the same time. The Godzilla fan in me loved the fact that I got to see two giant monsters fighting each other, but the logical side in me basically reminded me that I was watching a glorified version of the ending to Van Helsing, which isn't a compliment at all.
The cast isn't the greatest, but it gets the job done. Most of the chemistry in the film is shared between Alex Pettyfer and Dianna Agron since the love between their characters is basically the central theme of the story. Although, the two of them seem rather dull on their own. John swears up and down he knows how to "be invisible" and "blend in," so that obviously means being as conspicuous as you can possibly be. Wearing a hood when no one else is and flashing lights that reside in your hands probably isn't the best way to try and go unnoticed. Meanwhile, Sarah has a thing for cameras and that's about it. Callan McAuliffe's Sam plays the rather cliché nerdy guy fairly well while the same can be said for Jake Abel's typical jock/scumbag character Mark. Timothy Olyphant is easily the best part of the cast, but still felt a little flat overall. However, he spits out a few speeches that steal whatever scene he's a part of.
Download I Am Number Four movie online probably isn't a good film at the end of the day, but it does have some good elements and will be mistakenly perceived as a good film because of them. If you're a fan of explosive sci-fi action sequences, it is probably worth seeing for that reason alone. The film's biggest downfall is that it's rather confusing at times if you haven't read the book and the film does a rather haphazard job of getting first time viewers up to speed. However, if you can somehow see it for cheap then it isn't the absolute worst way to waste two hours.
