Trivia

Scenes that included Odd and Stormy's origins were cut from the film. One including young Stormy and her step-father and another including young Odd and his mother. Odd's mother put a gun to his head and is later taken away while cutting paper roses. DJ Shamus and most of Ozzy's scenes were also cut from the film. See more »

Goofs

When Odd takes the gun from Eckles to shoot Kevin Goss near the ice cream shop, there are four rounds in the clip. He never cocks the gun, which would have put one of the four rounds in the chamber, but it locks open when he fires the fourth round. The only way it would have fired without cocking it is if there was a fifth round which would have been in the chamber. That would mean, however, that the gun wouldn't have locked open once the fourth round was fired. See more »

Destined to Be Together Forever
28 February 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Pico Mundo, a small town near the desert, the fast-food cook Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin) has the ability to see and talk to dead people. He is in love with his girlfriend Stormy Llewellyn (Addison Timlin) and they believe that they are destined to be together forever. Odd Thomas uses his abilities to help the Chief of Police Wyatt Porter (Willem Dafoe) to solve murders.

When Odd Thomas sees the creepy Fungus Bob Robertson (Shuler Hensley) surrounded by the fiends bodachs, he is sure that the town is in danger and threatened by the possibility of slaughtering people in a massive destruction. His further investigation with Stormy discloses that Fungus Bob worships the Prince of Darkness and he is plotting to kill many people in Pico Mundo. Will Odd Thomas and Stormy succeed in avoiding the bloodshed?

"Odd Thomas" is an entertaining movie, with a story that uses the idea of "The Sixth Sense" with "Ghost". Despite the use of CGI, the acting is good and Addison Timlin is among the most beautiful young actresses that I have recently seen. There is a surprising plot point near the end, sad but perfect to the story. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "O Estranho Thomas" ("The Odd Thomas")
