“I Am Number Four” had potential to be a fairly engaging science fiction thriller. I am sad to report that it sort of ended up a little like “Twilight” in the way that it dumbs itself down for it’s target audience.
There used to be a time when movies aimed at younger audiences had the freedom to follow their dark visions. Instead we are looking mostly at lifeless visual effects shows where a good story is cashed in for mindless action and effects.
My only hope after seeing this movie is that it does not lead to a series of sequels and turn in to an endless franchise.
