Consensus: Anton Yelchin is the right man for the title role, but Odd Thomas suffers from a jumbled tone.

Bruce Ingram
Chicago Sun-Times

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

Jeannette Catsoulis
New York Times

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.

Common Sense Media

Nightmarish imagery, violence abounds in dark-humored tale.

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.

Rex Reed
New York Observer

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.

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.

Philadelphia Inquirer

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.

Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News

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.

The film fails to establish a consistent tone and never becomes truly funny or scary as a result.

Fun, mildly exciting and surprisingly moving for a film that seems like it would be half-baked. It's certainly fun to watch and worthwhile. Nice CGI… More

Decent effects and story, the ending got me a little teary eyed but i still felt disapointed with the film.

I don't understand why this went straight to DVD. For any fan of the book this stays very true to the source material. Well for the most part. I think… More
