Odd Thomas (2013)
Genre: Comedy, Fantasy, Horror
This is an entertaining enough film with a decent narrative. I liked the beginning as it throws you straight into the story and the action straight off 😀 . The plot line treads along quite well, builds the danger slowly but not in a boring way and ended fabulously! The section near the end (not the actual end scene) was one of my favourites in this movie 😀 !! It was shocking (admit a little cheesy) and finished the characters great. I liked all of the characters even Stormy (Addison Timlin) 😛 . They had great personalities and really worked for the story but I wished that some of the actors had performed that bit better. However, Anton Yelchin was brilliant as his role as Odd Thomas and so was Willem Dafoe as his father Chief Wyatt Porter 🙂 . I loved the look of the demons and how they helped build the story (hinting who might be in danger next 😛 ). I also liked the “dog chase scene” and I liked how he dealt with the ghosts (and how they disappeared). However, there are some things I would have liked exploring more (like the gateway to hell) and after that shocking near end scene it takes a kind of passive finish. Plus some parts are quite predicable. Overall, a solid and enjoyable film for anyone who liked ghost or fantasy movies 🙂 Enjoy 😀
I give this film 3 Stars out of 5!
