Do you know who Alex Pettyfer is? If you answered “no”, don’t worry, chances are you will know all about Alex after this coming Friday.
Alex Pettfer was born and raised in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, England. At the tender age of 21 Alex already has six movies under his belt and three more in post-production. His most current movie, I am Number Four, will be in theaters on Friday, February 18, 2011.
I am Number Fouris based upon the book by the same name written by Pittacus Lore. I have never heard of the book before. I met another blogger when I was out in Hollywood who read the book with her son and told me it was an awesome book that they both enjoyed. I also found at that there is another book in the series called The Power of Six, also by the same author.
When I arrived in Hollywood back in January I was whisked away to see an advanced screening of Gnomeo and Juliet. After that screening we were able to see an advanced screening of I am Number Four. To be honest with you I was concerned that I might doze off in the theater. The movie didn’t start until late and I was on NY time (3 hours ahead of California time). I have to laugh at that thought because the very moment the movie started it sucked me right in and there was no way I was doing to doze off and miss a moment of it.
I am Number Four starts out with an intense action sequence. It is not apparent at first what is going on but you can tell that some kind of evil force was after the two men that were sleeping in a hut in the middle of the woods. Within the first few minutes of the film I was already on the edge of my seat.
I am Number Fouris about a teen that goes by the name of John Smith. To most people John is just an average teen who loves to hang out with his friends, surf and hang out on the beach. But John is far from average. John is actually one of a handful of surviors of an alien race that is hiding out on Earth to escape their nemesis, another alien race the Mogadorians.
The Mogadorians have already killed three of the survivors of John’s alien race. The Mogadorians are killing them off one by one. John is number four and the next to die.
In effort to protect John his guardian Henri moves them to another state and they take up residence in a house deep in the woods. Henri wants John to stay at home where he can be protected but John has other plans. John wants to go to high school and lead a normal teenage life.
John and Henri live a nomadic lifestyle in order to keep one step ahead of the Mogadorians. John is tired of moving around and always being the new kid in town. He wants to settle down and stay in one place, even if that means risking his life.
At school John meets a beautiful girl name Sarah (played by Dianna Argon who also plays the part of Quinn Fabray on the hit TV show Glee) and a boy name Sam. Sam’s father mysteriously disappeared while trying to gather proof that aliens exist.
John soon discovers that he has special powers. With each passing day his powers get stronger. However with each passing day the Mogadorians also get closer to finding him. Will John’s powers be strong enough to fight of his enemies if they find him? Will he ever be able to live the normal life that he so desperately wants to have? And who is number six?

I didn’t know what to expect when I saw the movie. I had seen a trailer for it about a month before the actual screening. It certainly looked interesting but you know how trailers are. Sometimes they show the best parts and the rest of the movie is a dud. That is NOT the case with I am Number Four. I was literally on the edge of my seat the whole time. A few of the bloggers that were with me were actually jumping out of their seats during some scenes. There was NO WAY I was going to doze off on this movie.
I am Number Four has it all – action, special effects, romance, humor, suspense, gruesome creatures, aliens, and of course a hottie like Alex Pettyfer. LOL!
I was really surprised at this movie. It was a million times better then what I originally anticipated. The movie is not even out yet and already my kids are excited to see it. My daughter already has plans to go and see it with her friends this coming weekend.
I am Number Four is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, and for language. If there was foul language in the film I did not notice it. I will agree that the movie does have intense action, but that is a good thing. The movie was a “wild ride” from beginning to end.
