Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Yep, he's an odd one all right. You're likely to get tired of hearing about it pretty quick, though."
‑ Bruce Ingram, Chicago Sun-Times
"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."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"Nightmarish imagery, violence abounds in dark-humored tale."
‑ Brian Costello, Common Sense Media
"The best combination of scares, comedy, romance, eye-popping special effects and good ol' sass since 1990's "Ghost." At any rate, its a lot better than 1996's "The Frighteners.""
‑ Fr. Chris Carpenter, Movie Dearest
"The film never really veers enough away from Buffy The Vampire Slayer territory to mark it as a serious groundbreaking genre contender."
‑ Mark Adams, Screen International
"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."
‑ Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
"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."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"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."
‑ Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com
"It feels smaller and more rushed - and less plausible - than it should, but Anton Yelchin is charming, and the snappy comic tone sometimes works."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"captures the feel and essence of Dean Koontz's writing"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"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."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"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."
‑ Inkoo Kang, Los Angeles Times
"The film fails to establish a consistent tone and never becomes truly funny or scary as a result."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
"After Van Helsing, the first G.I. Joe and the Mummy movies, filmmaker Stephen Sommers just about keeps his excessive action instincts in check for this offbeat supernatural comedy."
‑ Rich Cline, Contactmusic.com
"[Stephen] Sommers might be the worst director working who's not Uwe Boll, who at least has accidental charm."
‑ Matt Prigge, Metro
