If you have read the Odd Thomas books you will know the premise of Odd, s talent and have the knowledge of what is going on.
What you need to know is, is this any good based on previous adaptation disappointments?
The answer to that is....yes!!!!
It really captures not only the essence of the books, but also Koontz, s humour.
The effects are really good and yes the film bounds along at a good pace, with really good affects to boot.
As with nearly all adaptations there are compromises, but in general this is a really faithful adaptation of the much loved novels.
Up until this release I would say the best Koontz movies have been-The Face of Fear, Servants of Twilight, Mr.Murder and possibly Soul Survivor, and to a lesser degree Phantoms.Dark River wasnt to bad either.
So Odd Thomas is a step in the right direction and well worth a peak.
