Look forward to seeing this one. I enjoyed the books. He has not hit Michigan as of yet.

My wife loved the Odd Thomas books and I know that she would have loved this movie. Like the last review, I too hope this is not the last we will see of Odd Thomas.

I have never been happy with film renderings of Koontz novels- until now. Anton Yelchin is perfect as Odd and if there were any discrepancies from the book; I didn't notice. I believe any Oddie fan will leave the theater satisfied and craving more. Sequel, please?

Odd Thomas becomes a film that's going through the motions with too little character, style, or atmosphere to keep it engaging. Full Review
Yelchin is agreeably offbeat and convincingly two-fisted in the role, and Sommers, who’s always had a knack for fast-paced action with a light, comic touch, provides a few entertaining scenes here and there. Unfortunately, the horrific stuff in Odd Thomas seems gorily incompatible with the film’s otherwise breezy screenplay. Full Review
Sommers attempts to glue it all together with a raffish all-in-fun tone (despite some gory moments and unpleasant conceits), but the pic is neither witty nor macabre enough to pull off Koontz’s balance of elements in cinematic terms. Full Review
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." Full Review

Odd Thomas is at its best when it’s presenting — rather than commenting upon or explaining — juxtapositions of the wholesome and the supernatural. Full Review
