Better than I expected

Before I went I made the mistake of reading the reviews, but I usually don't take the reviews seriously (since some of my most favorite movies are rated very poorly). I was very please with the Host. Unlike the Twilight serious the acting was very good and they did a great job with following the book. I think that for those who have read the book it is worth going, but if you haven't then it might be worth waiting for redbox. I'm pleased that I went to the theaters to watch this. WIth all of the disapointing movies coming out lately, this was very refreshing.

Thank god they got actors who can actually act! Let's be honest because most books to movies fall a little short and this one isn't perfect but it is really good! And Saroise Ronan is great! Worth the money.

Quite boring

There is very little body to this film. A story that could have been told within the first 10 minutes was drawn out by useless scenes and dialogue that screamed..."get to the point" ! I also note that the casting director of today should take a page from those of the classic films of Hollywood...and start using "real" looking actors. Everyone in the world isn't "pretty"; in fact, most are pretty plain. With this in mind, I realize that Bogart would never be cast in a film today. The casting people should at least try to make the cast look different from one another. I was mixing up most of the characters (male) throughout the film. Overall, very disappointing.

Good But Not Great

I didnt read the book ahead of time, but I recall it being out. I think it was entertaining, but not enthralling, There is a better book out there called "Second Nature" that I hope becomes a movie like this one did.

This movie sucked!! Point Blank Period!! Was so long and boring and the romance was so cheesy it smelled. I was excited about the film because Stephanie Meyer writes great things. But this...The movie...I almost walked out and wanted my money back. Wouldn't recommend or see again. I don't know if it was the acting the plot.. No wait it was everything.. Sorry guys you tried.
