The evil aliens in the film are called "Mogadorians" - apparently they're from the planet Mogadore. Mogadore also happens to be a small suburb of Akron, Ohio - not far from where the film takes place, and not far from where James Frey, one of the writers of the novel on which this film was based, grew up. The word means "beautiful" in Arabic; it's also the name of a town in Morocco. See more »

Watched the movie "I am number four" tonight. The first 40 minutes it felt like I was watching a re-hashed "Twilight" movie rather than a sci-fi/horror pic. But then it got good. It was well worth the watch if you can make it through that first half of beaten to death formula high school angst movies that Twilight has seemed to spawn. You can bet that there will be sequels too, but they may be straight to video. The first half of the movie I give it 1 star, but it was the fault of the story, not the acting. The second half, I give it 8 stars. The acting was good, there were very nice special effects and some pretty cool alien bad guys in the style of "Pinhead."
