Movie:I am number four

I Am Number Four

Brief: In the beginning they were a group of nine. Nine aliens who left their home planet of Lorien when it fell under attack by the evil Mogadorian. Nine aliens who scattered on Earth. Nine aliens who look like ordinary teenagers living ordinary lives, but who have extraordinary, paranormal skills.
The Nine had to separate and go into hiding. The Mogadorian caught Number One in Malaysia, Number Two in England, and Number Three in Kenya. All of them were killed. John Smith, of Paradise, Ohio, is Number Four. He knows that he is next.  

 

Full Story: John Smith (Alex Pettyfer) is an alien from planet Lorien who was sent to Earth as a child alongside eight others to escape an invading race, the Mogadorians, which destroyed their home planet. He is protected by a Guardian, Henri (Timothy Olyphant), and has developed superpowers due to his extraterrestrial nature, such as enhanced strength, speed and agility, telekinesis, resistance to fire and heat and the power to generate light from his hands.

The Mogadorians, led by the Commander (Kevin Durand) eventually discover about the nine toddlers and come to Earth in search of them. They can only be killed in a particular sequence, with three of them having already been slain. John is Number Four. Knowing this, he and Henri move from Florida to Paradise, Ohio, where John befriends conspiracy theorist Sam Goode (Callan McAuliffe); and falls in love with amateur photographer Sara Hart (Dianna Agron), whose ex-boyfriend, school athlete Mark James (Jake Abel) is a bully who often torments both John and Sam.

During the spring carnival, Mark and his friends capture John and Sara, whom they believe are in a relationship, and drag them to a cave, where they attempt to beat John up. However, he uses his powers to fend them off and rescue Sara. Sam witnesses the events and John tells him his true origin. Shortly thereafter, Mark’s father, the local sheriff, interrogates Henri on John’s whereabouts when his son and his friends were attacked, and notices that he has a high-tech surveillance system.
 
A Chimera in the shape of lizard follows Henri from Florida to Paradise and then shapeshift's in to the DOG's.Henri tells John that too many people are suspicious of them, in addition to John’s random displays of power, caused by his difficulty in controlling them, and that they must leave. However, John tells him he can’t because he’s in love with Sara. When a Lorian falls in love, it only happens once, and the two lovers become connected forever.
The Mogadorians start searching for John as well as another Lorian, Number Six (Teresa Palmer), who decided to go after the Mogadorians instead of running away from them after her Guardian was murdered. The Magodorians eventually locate John and manipulate two conspiracy theorists into capturing Henri. When John and Sam go to rescue him, they are attacked, but manage to fend them off. However, Henri is mortally wounded and dies after John and Sam escape with some Lorian artifacts, including a blue rock that acts as a tracking device to locate other Loriens. Sam’s father, a conspiracy theorist who disappeared while hunting aliens in Mexico, has another. While Sam searches for it, John tries to say goodbye to Sara at a party, only to discover that the Mogadorians have framed him and Henri for the murders of the conspiracy theorists, who were actually killed by the Commander, as well as being terrorists due to the their cutting-edge technology. Mark sees John and calls his father, who corners John and Sara. He saves her from a fall, revealing his powers in the process, and they escape to their school.

Meanwhile, The Commander also arrives at Paradise, blocking the exits with trucks. He is confronted by Mark and his father, and, after injuring the latter, he forces the former to show him where John is hiding, Mark then takes him to the school, which he knows is Sara’s hideout.
  
There, John, Sara and Sam are attacked by the Commander and his soldiers, who have brought two giant monsters to hunt the trio. They are saved by Number Six and Chimera (in dog's shape) sent by John’s parents to protect him. John and Number Six, who can teleport, block energy-based attacks, and the same basic abilities as John, fight the Mogadorians. They eventually defeat them all, including the Commander, whose energy grenades are overheated by John and explode, destroying his body.

On the following day, John, Number Six, Sam and the Chimera unite their blue rocks and discover the location of the other four surviving Lorians. They set to find them and rally them together to protect Earth from the Mogadorians, leaving Sara and a repentant Mark, who has redeemed himself by lying to his father about John’s whereabouts and returning John a box belonging to his father, that they’ll return one day to be with them.

  1. This is a younger-person movie. It's great for high school/college students but the enjoyment seems to diminish by age. It's definitely worth seeing, but the people saying it is one of the best movies. Let me say that in this movie is a raw, powerful passion that carries this and making it one of the best of our time. So, i cant wait this kind of film. Watch Movies Online Free
