Movie Review: Odd Thomas




This movie was nothing like I expected.  I should have known that the movie was based on a book by Dean Koontz.  Needless to say, I passed this one over several times but it kept showing up on my list. In netflix it was given a solid 4 out of 5 stars.

I loved the character development and the characters themselves.  Yelchin does a great job with the dramatic performance.  And who doesn't love Addison Timlin, who play's odd's girlfriend.  She is adorable, quirky and a great side kick who truly loves Odd.

Many will say the acting was too scripted or too fake, but for that reason, I liked it.  The flow moved along nicely and the pace kept my attention.  It is a little graphic so parents if your gonna show your kids, there is some violence, but no nudity (although I personally feel nudity would be better than violence but that is just my preference).

The ending may or may not come as a shocker to you.  I wiped away (quite) a few tears.  You will definitely see aspects of the director, Stephen Sommers, who brought you "The Mummy".  In all it was a good movie that kept me going for its brief duration.  Its definitely worth a watch on Netflix.

It can be a good date night movie or a solo.  Take your pick and enjoy!

Until next time...
