Odd Thomas Reviews

August 29, 2019
A film that bungles the essence of romantic relationships, comedic timing, and preternatural thrills.

Odd Thomas has one really good thing going for it, and that's Anton Yelchin. After that, there's not much there.

Has enough character to be an entertaining ride despite the occasional narrative stumble

Yelchin's performance and the plot as a whole, as well as the mix of romance and quirky comedy horror makes the story interesting to follow and the ending hard to predict.

Odd Thomas is one paranormal investigator I cannot wait to watch in action again.

Odd, but oddly entertaining nevertheless.

I've never read a Koontz novel, but I don't think his target audience is pre-teens. Sadly, I'm not sure anyone much older would find the [film] to be more than novelty.

...easily stands as Sommers' most accomplished work to date.

Nightmarish imagery, violence abounds in dark-humored tale.

Even if "Off Thomas" would have likely had a more fruitful life on the small screen, it is still an enjoyably fast-paced way to spend 96 minutes—with a few additional surprises up its sleeve.

The film fails to establish a consistent tone and never becomes truly funny or scary as a result.
March 8, 2014
The best combination of scares, comedy, romance, eye-popping special effects and good ol' sass since 1990's "Ghost." At any rate, its a lot better than 1996's "The Frighteners."

It feels smaller and more rushed - and less plausible - than it should, but Anton Yelchin is charming, and the snappy comic tone sometimes works.

After Van Helsing, the first G.I. Joe and the Mummy movies, filmmaker Stephen Sommers just about keeps his excessive action instincts in check for this offbeat supernatural comedy.
March 5, 2014
The film never really veers enough away from Buffy The Vampire Slayer territory to mark it as a serious groundbreaking genre contender.
March 3, 2014
captures the feel and essence of Dean Koontz's writing

[Stephen] Sommers might be the worst director working who's not Uwe Boll, who at least has accidental charm.
February 28, 2014
Odd Thomas is a much better film than it's non-release would suggest. Hopefully one day it'll find it's audience and people will appreciate it for something other than just being better than Phantoms.
February 28, 2014
Odd Thomas should have been a scary horror movie with comic overtones, or a flat-out comedy with horror overtones. Instead, Sommers opts for a live-action version of a dumbed-down Scooby Doo adventure.

Yep, he's an odd one all right. You're likely to get tired of hearing about it pretty quick, though.
