Movie Review: Odd Thomas 2013

No comments :


Title: Odd Thomas
Language: English
Genre: Horror / thriller/ Suspense
Running Time: 100 Minutes

Synopsis:
In a California desert town, a short-order cook with clairvoyant abilities encounters a mysterious man with a link to dark, threatening forces. Threatened by this demonic presence Odd faces perhaps one of his most terrifying experience with the supernatural world ever!


Thoughts:

This attempt to release yet another franchise of book related novel proves that not every novel is suited for the big screen and not every film maker has what it takes to fully reenact the imaginations that a well written novel brings to it's reader. 

Odd Thomas flops with it's inconsistency and awkward acting. The story was adapted to film but fails to truly tell the story of Odd Thomas and chooses to focus on his love life ( maybe for the first film) The film is full of what seems to be direct quotes from the novel that makes it cringe worthy over the lovey dovey-ness of the main character. Making the film super draggy even if it was just a 100min film. 

For those that are expecting badass demon slaying choreography, you will be disappointed because this is actually a mystery/thriller kind of movie. Sharing similarities to Ghost Whisperer and Supernatural, it would be best to just buy the book and read it from there. 

It took a lot of looking back into the film to finally feel the message that it wants to project in the last part of the film which might be too late for many audiences. 

Rating: 1/5

"Lack of engaging elements to keep the film going strong and finally flops for being too draggy."

BUT luckily, 
Addison Timlin is hot
