My movie

Yup that's what I call my movie good solid and lots of action first saw it in the theater now I own it and I have watched it a few times. I hope it will have a sequel — Outlander 69

The rest of the series ?
★★★★★
Will they ever do the movie version of the rest of this book series This was a highly entertaining action flick As far as I am concerned Rotten has it wrong on this one too — AnonnonLauri

might give it a try
★★★★★
I'm a 7th grade girl that's just here trying to decide if that mark james dude is hot or not. Also, I wanna see this, looks cool. — LittleMix#1Fan22

I am number 4
★★★★★
The movie was alright had an ok plot but, it skimmed over the most important parts of the story to make it shorter. When he was breaking the street lights, that was not how he was supposed to discovered his telekinesis. But, it was pretty good for what it is worth. — Dovakin546😑

Really great! But, doesn't do the book justice...
★★★★★
This was a great movie with great actors but, the movie changes and leaves out many things that happened in the book... I was very disappointed about that... But overall, this was a very good movie! — KK_HOM

Good story, good sci fi action
★★★★
I liked the story and pace, good special effects. Would have been better if # 6 showed up earlier, guess a sequel is in the cards. — Jackwdriver

Why?!
★★★★
Okay. If I hadn't read the book this would be an awesome movie. Comparing it to the Percy Jackson movies it was. I must say it was quite far off from the book. Sometimes I think directors don't realize it's supposed to be like the book!!! Someday I am going to redo all the horrible book to movies starting with this one then the Percy Jackson's. I always look forward to seeing the movies to book and always end up wishing I had never seen the make. Great book bad movie. Why?! Please REDO!!!!!! But better this time — RoSeFlOWER443

Can't wait for the Sequel
★★★★★
This is an excellent movie! I can't understand what has taken them so long to do the sequel — La Hewlett

Yeesh...book was better. Like by A LOT.
★★★★
The movie overall was OK. I adored the book. Most of the actors and actresses did an awesome job portraying their parts. The graphics tho! The graphics and special effects looked like they were from the 1980's (I don't know for sure when it came out..) Godzilla. They were very unmodern and (excuse my harshness) pretty awful. I kind of knew from watching the trailer that the movie wouldn't even really look real. Aaaaaand I was right. If you like Sci-Fi fiction fantasy movies, get it u won't regret it. Some movies can pack a bunch of genres together and make it amazing. I feel this movie could have done a little bit better at least trying to do that because they stuck to the Romantic/Action stuff. But I liked it. — Hugiepio

Nice Movie
★★★★★
Nice movie… — Rainer & Emir

I liked it!
★★★★★
I've seen it twice and liked it each time I looked at it, but the hero leaving the woman he loved--in order to go chasing after the "bad people," didn't seem to be a "good fit." Also, the movie could have been made better... — Berkeley Rooster

Second time watching...
★★★★★
I wish this movie had a sequel! :( I love a good book, as well as movie, that I can get lost in. Really enjoyed the movie, for the second time around lol. — UnhappyFan:(

Great movie
★★★★
I do admit, it doesn't follow the absolutely PERFECT book by Pittacus Lore very well, but I have to say I did enjoy it and critics don't know what they're saying. I am very sad that a sequel hasn't been made yet... :( — Br:)aden

One of the best movies ever
★★★★★
All i can say is wow and i'm a huge movie watcher. I believe this is the second time i've wrote a review within the last 5 yrs of collecting and watching movies with a passion. everything from the acting to the storyline and scenes, was extremely good. I also loved the begining and the way they kept hinting that something about the dog was off:) I had this movie sitting in my collection for awhile now, if i would have known it was such a great movie, this would have been the 15th time i watched it. — Timbo366

See it!

Cool
★★★★★
I can't wait to watch it and I've seen the preview and it's awesom. But John does not have blond hair. — Rottenweiler

If you're a fan of the books do not watch!
★★★★
I love this book series & I was very disappointed by the movie. They added legacies to number 6 that she never had in the books (teleportation & fire resistant). Also the movie just falls flat when compared to the books. It did not hold my attention. — DiscoDuck_73

Where’s the sequel!
★★★★★
I really enjoyed this movie! The action and special effects were great. It does have a bit of a teen romance element to it but I think it was well done. Again, great movie. I just wish they would make the sequel. — jthedwalker

Awesome

This movie is awesome how could anyone not like it — $$$$cj$$$$

Bad movie. Great story!
★★★★★
All of those people saying if this is really a great movie, need to ask themselves, "is this a great movie or a great story?" I enjoyed watching this movie because the story and the book was so great. Unless the movie had literally nothing related to John being I am number four and Sarah and the mogadorians like the book than it would have been really bad. However, when you think about the movie itself, it is awful. The movie doesn't portray the relationships between the characters well. In the book, John loves both Sarah and Henri, but there is not one time where I get that sense. Henri always argues with John and they even fight in the movie which doesn't happen in the book. And I also didn't how Sarah loved John. In the book they spend so much time together, kiss many times, and say they love each other. NONE of that us in the movie. And Sarah does not even cry, just bites her lip when John leaves in the end?!?!?!? I Also don't get why the chest was barely used and Six had the legacy of not being burned not John. The chest is one of the most important things to all Garde. John and Sam go through a huge cave in America full of Mogadorians just to retrieve two of them in book 3. Also, where was the fire at Marks house. Also, how was it so hard for six and John to take out so little Mogs in the end battle when they are powerful enough to now them down easily like in the books. Despite all of this, I did enjoy watching this cause it was nice seeing a great story portrayed somewhat on a screen. — Nats fan 1

Ehh
★★★★★
I am number four was an amazing book. The movie doesn't do the book justice and overall butchers it. If you read the books, you will not enjoy this movie because the movie and book are barely on the same topic, the entire concept is reworked to fit the time slot. If you have not read the book, the movie is action-packed and adventurous, and overall we'll done. — M&pip

Book vs. Movie, eh.
★★★★★
The book was much better than the movie, as most books are against their movies. The movie was missing key parts in the story that I bought the movie to see how they did it. Let’s see how “The Power Of Six” Turns out — Gabe JW.

ok movie
★★★★
i hope the sequal is a little closer to the book — Alisha48

O.K.
★★★★★
OK by itself, but disappointing compared to the book. They skipped the backstory, the fire at Mark's house, and many other parts of the story for time reasons. Although, It could have been worse. Overall, fine job filmmakers. — 314153629

It's great!!
★★★★★
I personally loved the movie even after reading the book — Gujkufy

OH MY GOSH I LOVE THIS MOVIE
★★★★★
Let me just say, the books are way better, but I bet you were expecting that. All in all, though, I do have to say that they did a pretty good job with this movie, other than a few minor character factors, but they got enough of the plot from the book down that fans were able to enjoy it without stressing out about certain details. I, FOUR one (get it, haha) loved this movie and have watched it a million times. If you enjoy books with twists and characters that you can fall in love with, then I would definitely watch this movie. I would also suggest maybe reading the book first, just so you get a little bit more of an understanding of the circumstances and situations of these lovely characters. I hope this review was of any help :) — JerseyJacobs

Cool

Didn't go along with the book but it was ok — The one ringer

One of the best movies!
★★★★★
This movie includes romance, and action. Lots of action! I was never into these types of movies and books until I read the books and saw the movie, But you should definitely read the book before watching the movie. — Jordi148

Sequel anybody!!!

Loved this movie. Just wish it was longer. And where the hell is the follow up??!!! — Mcnasty805

It was amazing
★★★★★
I haven't seen the movie yet but if it is as good as the book then I am itching to see what the director did with the movie!!!!!!!!!!! — Cool kid 55432

Best movie
★★★★★
This is my favorite movie ever. Everyone who says it's to short it's because there is a book series to it that hasn't even ended yet. I LOVE Dianna Agron and this movie was perfect for her. Teresa Palmer is amazing in this too — Dnjfgbjjbthsth

Need to make another!!

They need to make another one!!! Now!!! — ChrOnic11

I love this movie — Maya Lou

To clear things up
★★★★
The reason this movie got tomatoes is because the movie is a complete knock off of the fabulous book. The order in events wasn't even remotely the same, the relationship between the characters were different, Henri didn't die because of "they walk among us" he died during battle, John didn't have to leave because of the incident it was because when they met the magazine people they saw mogs, number six has jet black hair, and John didn't name Bernie his collar had a name on it and john didnt first meet bernie at his house he showed up at his school. Sarah and John met when she was photographing cheer leaders. John didn't rescue Sarah from the roof, he saved her when he Sarah Sam and Emily went to marks party and his house caught on fire and Sarah was stuck. These are only some of the differences there were plenty more. So for most people who read the book and saw the movie they hated it but for the people who didn't read it Would be a good movie — Bookdefender

Do not watch
★★★★
This movie is so bad. The book was way better. I mean we learn nothing of loren all through out the movie and the screwed up the legacies john is fire proof not 6. The casting for 6 was all wrong. The battle scene was also disappointing it was so much better in the book. — Bladed12345

I Am Number Four
★★★★
Enjoyed it, hope they make a sequel. — cadr7

Awesome!
★★★★★
I love it! I honestly think this film is underrated. It's got great acting, lots of action, and a fascinating plot, but the critics say it's bad. They're also saying Pettyfer wasn't fit for the role but I'll bet all the ladies that watched thought differently. He's hot. That's good enough for us. — ND10199

Good movie but.....
★★★★
Ok overall really good movie! But if you have read the book then you notice it is absolutely nothing like the movie! I like to think of the movie and book as 2 separate stories because otherwise it kind of ruins it! But the movie alone was amazing!!! — Storm Chaser in training!!!

Best movie EVER!!!

Best movie I have seen in my hole life — Xrrrrrrrrxxxxxrrrrrr

This movie was amazing, I keep watching it over and over again. I wish it was longer but there are three books so there will most likely be three movies. — Syd11330
