I am Number Four
John Smith played by Alex Pattyfer, is an alien from planet Lorien who was sent to Earth as a child with eight others to escape an the Mogadorians, which destroyed their home planet. He is protected by a guardian named Henri portrayed by Timothy Olyphant, and has developed "legacies" or inborn superpwers, such as enhanced strength, speed and agility, telekinesis, and the power to generate light from his hands. The Mogadorians, led by their commander played by Kevin Durand, eventually learn about the nine children and come to Earth in search of them. These 8 loriens can only be killed in a particular sequence, with three of them already dead. John is Number Four. Knowing this, he and Henri move from Florida to Paradise, Ohio, where John befriends an alien nerd named Sam Goode played by Callan McAuliffe, a dog named Hadley, and falls in love with amateur photographer Sarah Hart played by Dianna Agron, whose ex-boyfriend, Mark James played by Jake Abel, is a bully who has his eyes on both John and Sam. During the spring carnival, Mark and his friends try to capture John and Sarah, whom they believe are in a relationship, and follow them into the woods, where they attempt to beat John up. However, he uses his legacies to fend them off and rescue Sarah. Sam saw what happened and told him the whole story. Then, Mark's father, the sheriff, asks Henri on John's whereabouts when his son and his friends were attacked and notices their unusual security around the house. Henri tells John that too many people are suspicious of them, in addition to John's random displays of power, caused by his difficulty in controlling them, and that they must leave. However, John tells him he doesn't want to because he's in love with Sarah. The Mogadorians start searching for John. Another alien from Lorien, Number Six played by Teresa Palmer, decided to go after the Mogadorians instead of running away from them after her Guardian was murdered. The Mogadorians eventually locate John and manipulated two people into capturing Henri. When John and Sam go to rescue him, they are attacked but manage to fend Mogadorians off. However, Henri is mortally wounded and dies after John and Sam escape with some Lorien artifacts, including a blue rock that acts as a tracking device to locate other Loriens. Sam's father, an alien researcher who disappeared while hunting aliens in Mexico, has another. While Sam searches for it, John tries to say goodbye to Sarah at a party, only to discover that the Mogadorians have framed him and Henri for the murders of the two people that captured Henri, and accused of being terrorist due to their surveillance technology in their house. Mark sees John and calls his father, who corners John and Sarah. He saves her from a fall, revealing his powers in the process, and they escape to their high school. Meanwhile, The Commander also arrives at Paradise, blocking the exits with trucks. He is confronted by Mark and his father, and after injuring the latter, he forces the former to show him where John is hiding, Mark then takes him to the school, which he knows is Sarah's hideout. There, John, Sarah, and Sam are attacked by the Commander and his soldiers, who have brought two giant monsters to hunt the trio. They are saved by Number Six and John's "dog," Hadley, who reveals his true form as a good alien creature, which can transform, and was sent by his parents to protect him. The dog eventually transforms back from being a monster to a dog with a very wounded paw. John and Number Six, who can teleport and block energy attacks, fight the Mogadorians. They eventually defeated them all, including the Commander, whose energy grenades are overheated by John and explode, destroying his body. On the following day, John, Number Six, Sam, and Hadley, unite their blue rocks and discover the location of the other four surviving Loriens. John decides to let Sam come with them with hopes of finding Sam's father. They...
