I AM NUM­BER FOUR (2011) 7MATE, 9PM, M, FAN­TASY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

This sci­ence-fic­tion flick is like a long episode of TV’s Smal­lville that has been heav­ily in­spired by the Twi­light se­ries. For­get Clark Kent and Ed­ward Cullen, though. There’s a new hunky hero in town and his name is John Smith (Alex Pet­tyfer) – an alien with su­per­pow­ers who passes him­self off as a reg­u­lar high-school stu­dent. The prob­lem is, there are bad guys – Mo­gado­ri­ans – hunt­ing him and eight other teenagers like him, forc­ing them to flee to a small town. Here he gains new pow­ers, meets a love in­ter­est and makes some new friends. Ex­pect plenty of ac­tion, in­clud­ing thrilling scenes with di­nosaur-like beasts and Star Wars- es­que weaponry. ★★★
