 Make every second count

Duncan Jones’ sophomore directorial effort after the sublime Moon further proves he has a knack for intelligent, emotion-filled sci-fi’s. Source Code is one of those movies which make you think and really make you realize that unlike some filmmakers there are some intelligent and creative brains out there who still believe in quality cinema. In a nutshell, the movie is a Sci-Fi action thriller and is brilliantly shot. I said brilliant because of three reasons:-

1.The way of storytelling. 2.The visibility of the scenes, dialogs and the overall script. 3.The quality of the direction.

Genres:

Of course, “I Am Number Four” is by no means a great movie. Characters are stereotypical, things fall into place way too conveniently and one has the feeling that a good junk of the original novel has just been crammed together to (barely) fit into the running time of 90 minutes. The story feels a bit weak and there are so many plot holes it takes away part of the enjoyment like if the nine aliens are so powerful, why can’t they stop those Mogadorians? Is it because they have a huge flying squirrel like monster? Oh wait. Number Four also have one of those. Is it their appearance? Or is it unexplained? I’ve never read this book before. Lack of narratives? They never mentioned why kill them in sequence. But however, This is not a bad film. It’s just not that great. Among the good points, the visuals were astounding. The final battle in the movie is something that save the movie from being a huge disappointed. The last 20 minutes will most certainly entertain the majority of audiences. And also the villains are pretty cool. There gigantic, bald, covered in tattoos with gills and sharp teeth, carry some pretty cool weapons, and have 2 gigantic beasts as pets.

Watched this movie in QFX Central, Civil Mall.

There are a lot of comments about this movie having a poor story, personally, I disagree. It was a father and son story, any more on top of the other sub plots going on would have been too much.

It’s a hell of an experience for the sences in 3D,  immersive, entertaining… everything a good movie should be.
