Odd Thomas Reviews

February 28, 2014
Yep, he's an odd one all right. You're likely to get tired of hearing about it pretty quick, though.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 28, 2014
Odd Thomas is an engagingly lightweight and occasionally visually inventive film that should appeal to Koontz fans and anyone else open to his whimsical approach to horror.
| Original Score: 3/5
February 28, 2014
An endearing, witty romantic dramedy-slash-supernatural-thriller about a small desert town in California beset by demonic apparitions and a satanic cabal of deranged would-be mass murderers.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
February 28, 2014
They've given this once-promising character a fate similar to death-a pretty bad movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
February 27, 2014
At once comic, tragic and goofily romantic, and resting too often on Odd's clarifying narration, this young-adult lark breaches the nonsense barrier with some regularity.
February 27, 2014
Odd Thomas has high-speed chases, explosions, narrow escapes and masses of special effects-none special enough, I'm afraid, to save it from mediocrity.

February 27, 2014
This expensive-looking indie, adapted from a supernatural book series by sci-fi author Dean Koontz, tries too hard for a wacky tone, and winds up merely brain-dead.

February 27, 2014
In adapting Dean Koontz's series, Sommers nails the hero but bungles the world-building. Odd predicts mythological violence, but the climactic wreckage we see on screen is too real for what should play out as weightless entertainment.
February 27, 2014
What worked so well for Anton Yelchin as the protagonist of "Fright Night" - scrappy, clever young guy fights supernatural evil - falls flat in this adaptation of a Dean Koontz novel from director Stephen Sommers.

February 27, 2014
A protective layer of irony ensures that the movie's commingling of the mundane and the bizarre never registers as camp.

Think Gilmore Girls, if there were an episode where Satan possessed Rory. Still, there are signs of life among all the dead.
February 25, 2014
Cast and crew generate an enjoyable sense of community in Odd's hometown. Odd Thomas just doesn't leave us with much desire to return there.

The books' juggling of tricky tonal and narrative devices translates into a screen result less clever than arbitrary and silly.
