24. I Am Number Four (✩✩½) - DVD - An alien teen with powers is being protected on Earth as he's being chased by other bad aliens. This movie had some good ideas, including an incredible set-up, but it's not a good movie. It's obviously aimed at the Miley Cyrus/Zac Efron crowd with it's dealing with young love and high school. Two standouts though are Teresa Palmer's badass asskicking and Kevin Durand as the leading alien bad guy. The movie is based on the first book in a series of books and as such, could turn into a franchise, but there's no word on a sequel yet.
I rather liked this film also. I remember the trailers sold it as kids with powers. My thought was great an X-Men ripoff like PUSH all over again. So I passed till DVD. If they had sold it as what it was, which is a regal alien race in exile it might've done better? Maybe? I can't be the only one who just though 'poor mans X-Men' film.
