ODD THOMAS (2014 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì

Odd Thomas—a wannabe supernatural thriller—needs a complete reboot from its title to its slow and redundant script. The upside to the story becomes the use of Willem Dafoe and the late Anton Yelchin who play the characters of Chief Wyatt Porter and Odd Thomas respectively.

Storyline

After Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin) sees dead people, he attempts to right the wrong that caused their death. Finally, he has opportunity to prevent the death of a large group of individuals due to a futuristic dream detailed by Viola (Gugu Mbatha-Raw).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It’s got good concept and most likely, over time, will work itself into cult movie status.
