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 »

A great movie will leave you yearning for a sequel, and I Am Number Four certainly does.
First off, the visuals were astounding. This really goes without saying, but the final battle in the movie was incredible.
Another sign of a great movie, my friends and I truly liked the characters. We actually cared about what happened to them (something that I can't say about other book-to-movie Harry-Potter-wannabes.) Even number Six, a bad-ass female with Nightcrawler-like power was lovable!
Finally, the storyline was engaging and easy to understand. Yes, there were some unexplained portions, but this is only the first movie in a series. I understood it just fine without having read the book, and there was no point in the movie where I felt that things were moving too slowly (nor to quickly, for that matter.)
I would urge you not to take any of the negative reviews written by middle-aged men to heart - spend the 10 bucks and give this movie a chance. I promise you that you'll end up enjoying it!
