Storyline

Extraordinary teen John Smith (Pettyfer) is a fugitive on the run from ruthless enemies sent to destroy him. Changing his identity, moving from town to town with his guardian Henri (Olyphant), John is always the new kid with no ties to his past. In the small Ohio town he now calls home, John encounters unexpected, life-changing events-his first love (Agron), powerful new abilities and a connection to the others who share his incredible destiny.

Goofs

When Henri gives John his phone, he informs him that he'll be calling every hour John is on his own to make sure he's okay, and if John doesn't pick up, Henri will know something is wrong (implying he'll assume the Mogs have attacked John and will come looking for him). During dinner at Sarah's, John reluctantly surrenders his phone after noticing three missed calls from Henri. Despite the fact that John had not answered his phone for three hours, Henri did nothing about it, and does not even mention it at all afterward. See more »

Liked it even though I'm not from the target age group
23 October 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

That was better than I was expecting especially since I'm not in the target age group. It has a 'Twilight'-ish feel to it with typical teenage angst, high-school issues and some light romance, but on the other side its also a pretty cool sci-fi flick with great special effects and some interesting/unique bad guys.

It follows "John Smith" who is from another planet, (literally). He's masquerading as a typical teen and with the help of his (fairly useless) guardian has been on the run his entire life, trying to stay one step ahead of the intergalactic bounty hunters sent to kill his kind. They are being taken out in numerical order, and John is Number Four.

The final battle scene is kinda epic and the chick playing #6 really kicks ass. I loved the dog/lizard creature and the ending is also very good while being left open for sequels -of course. I remember this book being super popular. 12/29/13
