Where as the movie "In Time" succeeds in its clever use of language & banter between characters, The Host fails. I was so hoping this movie was going to be great. Instead I got a bit of excitement, heartfelt romance & intrigue, & a bit of annoyance by the film's attempt to be cute & funny at times. Inconsistent in it efforts at believable rapport between characters as they were put into "role play" I did enjoy the internal conflict between Wanda & Meg. Saoirse Ronan captured the role in a delicate & touching manner. The human element was presented in a believable way. I think the film was made more for the Hunger Games generation. I could have done without a lot of the "inner voice" at times, as emotions & concerns were obvious during certain scenes The inner voice could have been toned down a bit, was actually comical at times when the Film was obviously trying to be serious & somber. I really wish they had spent a little more effort & time giving The Host a little more substance. C

A decent movie to burn 2 hours in. Not a really fast paced movie and is completely different than the book. If you only like shoot-em-up's don't waste your time. If you enjoy a decent story, give it a shot.

Since I am not a lover of all things Twilight and I am getting exhausted with Juvenile Fiction, I was lukewarm on this book. The movie was really quite good, though! There aren't a lot of great movies out there right now but I sincerely think was one of the better movies of the year.

I liked the Host a lot. The cast was picked out very nicely. I would say that it is for adults and kids. It really kept to the book. Better then Twilight.

This was a movie I enjoyed, one that told the story of The Host very creditably. I was impressed by the cast, particularly William Hurt, Frances Fisher and Saoirse Ronan. I loved the sets, especially their cave dwelling/hideout. I felt very satisfied with the movie...felt it was well edited, moved right along and did the story justice. I think people who read the book will enjoy the movie more than those who don't.
