Must see

This movie is a great action packed movie I’m confused as to why they still haven’t came out with a second one

Well Done!

Loved the movie as an adult and was expecting sequels as it ended as if a sequel was planned. Was extremely disappointed, again, that producers miss their mark. I read they said sequel was shelved due to poor ratings. Well based on my research I see it is loved by the fans....kids and adults a like. And they certainly profited worldwide. Why are producers sooooo stupid? I notice they pay closer attention to Rotten Tomatoes ... critics who should receive one star for their inability to recognize good movies that are well received by the public. Cant stand the critics....they ruin it for the rest of us. I LOVE I am Four and firmly believe they should film a sequel or create a series....even better.

This title has:

Great role models
