Halfway through this totally satisfying flick, a character observes, "My whole life has been like an 'X-Files' episode."
That's exactly what we need right now. At least the Movie Slut says so.
"Number Four has humor & horror, aliens & monsters, love & longing, friendship & jealousy, ignorance & intelligence, a shape-shifting canine, a flying fire goddess, and most important, characters we can really care about. Thank you director Michael Bay.
This is not a flick for everyone. But for "X-Files" fanciers, it has everything. Oh, how we miss you Mulder and Scully. No, they're not in this thoroughly satisfying sci-fi thriller, but the next generation of paranormal seekers are. We'll learn more about them in the sequel. Oh yes, a sequel is on the way.
The truth is still out there.
