Directed by CGI-obssessed Stephen Sommers (The Mummy, Van Helsing), and starring Anton Yelchin, Addison Timlin, Willem Dafoe, Nico Tortorella, Patton Oswalt, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, “The story centers on a short-order cook named Odd Thomas (Yelchin) who can commune with the dead, a secret only his girlfriend (Timlin) and the local police (Dafoe) chief know. The young man can also spot malevolent forces called bodachs, who feed on pain and portent imminent death. When Odd sees them in spades surrounding a stranger, he finds himself in a race against time to avert a catastrophe.”
I excitedly watched with some friends this weekend, and was absolutely shocked at how terrible it was. The film, bloated with inane exposition, also feels bizarrely small for its massive budget. It’s a tough movie to sit through, which is saying a lot considering how much I enjoy Sommers’ G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
