Sorry, but this Japanese poster is flippin' awesome.
Honestly, it was better than I hoped. I hope for MIB-style just fun and intriguing. What I got was a dark action supernatural thriller with a great Peter Parker-esque lead who just absolutely steals the screen, and an amazing supporting cast, super awesome effects from Stephen Sommers (who, while I do hate Van Helsing, has overall continued to put out good, funny, action supernatural films) and a film that is way deeper and more interesting than I thought it would be.
I really don't have too much bad to say. Uh ... actually, sitting here and thinking about it, I don't have ... ANYTHING bad to say. Anton Yelchin is just perfect. He is able to keep a dour and serious demeanor while still doing really funny quips. Odd is such an incredibly interesting character, and played just perfectly. Every one of the lead actors is great: Addison Timlin as a great non-damsel love interest; Willam DaFoe plays a great father-figure cop; Gugu Mbatha-Raw has the greatest name in film, and always plays a really nice believable mother with slight psychic abilities ...
Hold down slow up there, need some context for all this crazy talk.
It is a very lean film, very focused on its thrilling plot and mystery, but with a lot of great character to cement it all together. I really cannot say a single bad thing about the film. I liked it a whole bunch, and I bet a lot of you out there would also love it. Give it a shot.
