    Best reason to stay home and rent "Disturbia": I Am Number Four is a little better and makes loads more sense than "Eagle Eye." But neither has the sass and pluck of "Disturbia." show more

    Four is so cobbled with bits of other sci-fi and comic-book movies, there's little to distinguish it. show more

    With clunky dialogue...I Am Number Four puts the burden on its special effects (passable) and the chemistry between Pettyfer and Agron. show more
