“Three are dead. Who is Number Four? D.J. Caruso (“Eagle Eye,” “Disturbia”) helms an action-packed thriller about an extraordinary teen, John Smith (Alex Pettyfer), who 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 (Timothy 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 (Dianna Agron), powerful new abilities and a connection to the others who share his incredible destiny.” -Walt Disney Pictures
Verdict: It was already a flop before its release. Watching half of the film’s trailer was already enough for me to expect it to be yet another typical teen movie that involves characters with supernatural powers. I could only hope that it wouldn’t be as bad as ‘Push‘, but it turned out almost just as bad. Fortunately there were some intended funny moments, and some parts where my date & I could joke about, just to keep ourselves entertained (TORCHLIGHT HANDS! HA-HA-HA-HA). I liked the beginning part where they made it suspenseful, it was almost like watching a horror film. But other than that, it’s pretty much one of the films I wouldn’t have ever thought of watching if it wasn’t for free.
Sequel? Ummm… no thanks. I’d rather watch the sequel of Percy Jackson.
