The evil aliens in the film are called "Mogadorians," and are apparently 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 bulk of the movie takes places in Paradise, Ohio; however, the law enforcement officers, referred to as Sheriff (and one assumes deputy), are not dressed as Sheriffs and Deputies in the State of Ohio, who wear a black top with gray pants. Also, Sheriff's vehicles in Ohio are all black. See more »

dainefan took the words right out of my mouth. If you would pay a film admission price to watch two hours of predictable, cliché, and poorly acted supernatural teen soap drama, you may enjoy this movie. I watch movies of all genres several times a week and enjoy the vast majority. I Am Number Four is one of the very few films that I've very nearly walked out on (before it was even halfway over).
Honestly, I was intrigued by the premise. Sci-fi and fantasy are two of my favourite genres. But in the back of my mind, I sensed I might be disappointed with this one, so I went in with low expectations. I came out embarrassed to have willfully endured such an atrocity.
In retrospect, I sincerely wish I had walked out. The only good thing that came of seeing this film is that now I can warn others to stay away from it.
If you have a craving for supernatural action-drama, turn on your TV or visit a streaming TV site and choose any show in that genre at random; I have no doubt you will find something equally "good", but more likely far better than this, for a bargain.
