Recently I went to the movies with my friends for a get together, the topic of our desire: I am Number Four, which didn’t end up at all like it had appeared (actually, it did end up as it appeared in the ads and such but I’m just saying that to add some interesting aroma). It was okay, I suppose. I’m not saying it was bad and I’m not saying it was good. It was average, an average movie with an awesome storyline a catch phrase (i.e. we were nine, three are dead, I am number four), the acting was good as well but the way it was made (and written, seeing as it was a book) wasn’t exactly good.
Do you know those characters that are really annoying? The one who used to date the Main Character’s love interest and is still obsessing over her/him. Yeah, they had one of those and what made it even more annoying was the fact that he didn’t die when he was thrown at a two story high window and he apologized to the main character for his nasty behavior and helped him out. The action was good and I bet everyone in the cinema loved Number Six and her awesome fighting. Some of my friends certainly loved the Geek for he shared their addiction to Xbox and getting hit by footballs (or is that just me? I swear that Sport Balls are in love with my head).
So it was actually a pretty good movie – not great, of course but one that was fair enough. The part where he got his powers annoyed me, his dog was pretty cool and I kept expecting it to be some evil monster thing but it turned out to be a good monster thing. If you're planning on watching this movie I’m just going to nod and say: “Yeah, it was okay,” but that’s all it will get according to me.
