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

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

They've given this once-promising character a fate similar to death-a pretty bad movie.

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.

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.

I've never read a Koontz novel, but I don't think his target audience is pre-teens. Sadly, I'm not sure anyone much older would find the [film] to be more than novelty.

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.

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.

A very lighthearted approach to some very grim subject matter. But it works.

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.
