I'm a massive fan of Stephanie Meyers books. This was by far her best book written and the movie DESTROYED it! Yes it stayed true to the story for the most part, leaving some things out as most book-movies have to do. But the intensity of the 'love triangle' was so ridiculous that it had my friends and i laughing. The use of inspirational, orchestral music was so over done that I felt like i was watching a trailer the whole way through. The script was so bad that there was no way for the actors to make the conversations look good, or in any way realistic and there was absolutely no (intentional) comic relief to scene after scene of intense conversations. I give it a 2/10, one out of respect for Stephanie Meyer, and one because the guys were hot.

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.

I read the host awhile ago but from what i can remember it followed the book very well. And it is not very often that I can say the movie was exactly what i pictured when i was reading! To everyone that has read the book you must go see it!!!!!!!! For people that have not read the book, you will probably just say its an ok movie

It was OK but just not the right book to be brought to the screen

I read the book several years ago and did not care for it particularly. When I heard it was to be brought to the screen I was surprised this particular book would be chosen. A book that so much takes place in thoughts rather than words just didn't sound promising. I went because I am a big fan of Max Irons and Jake Abel and hoped to see they had gotten roles in a great movie. They were worth seeing it for but wish they had been in it more. The whole small male cast was good. The problem with the two entities in the same body was as much a problem as I thought it would be. Confusing at times. It wasn't a bad movie but other than the actors I did not enjoy the story. The humor that was brought into it at times was a bit out of place but it made me smile. I did get teary toward the end with Wanda and Melanie so it did make me care.
