By: Jared Counts, February 18th, 2011 04:13 PMJohn (Pettyfer), the fourth of nine alien refugees on Earth, is being pursued by the bloodthirsty Mogadorians following the deaths of three of his brethren. After hiding out in a small town, befriending a nerdy outcast (McAuliffe) and falling in love with an artsy loner (Agron), John discovers his burgeoning powers and decides to stop running. A middling, uneven action drama.
