2 hours and 5 minutes of my life, that I will never get back. Had this been made before Twilight, there would have been NO Twilight Franchise, at all! No further review required.

An enjoyable afternoon

I read the book, loved it and couldn't wait to see the movie. I enjoyed the movie and left the theater feeling refreshed instead of traumatized. If you like movies full of destruction, violence and explosions, this movie is not for you. It is more of an intellectual thriller with a little humor woven in. My tween grandchild also gave it a huge thumbs up.

So sad to say it, but The Host sucked. Bad acting, completely flat emotions, weak action....It bummed me out since I did love the book and adore Saoirse Ronin. If you must see this movie, save your money and watch it on Netflix in a few months.

A lot of this movie seemed like a joke with the girl talking to herself and her hand getting out of control. I think I saw an old comedy routine like this. The acting was bad . . .we ended up leaving and going to another movie. Don't waste your money, wait til it's on tv and then you can text and tweet when you get bored, lol.

Loyal to Book/Highly Recommended

The movie was exactly as I had imagined it would be. It was "spot on" with the vision of the book. I very much enjoyed the movie and felt a real connection to the characters. Uncle Jeb was perfectly played by William Hurt. Stephanie Meyer finds a way to make what should be the bad guy a sympathetic figure, not only the main character, but the "souls" in general. Not much more I can say. My absolute highest recommendations for this movie.
