No loudly bracket of machinegun bullets firing. No massive artillery barrages to harbor "Shock and Awe" to the enemy. No they sneak in and take your bodies over. The planet well ....it is not as loud as it was.
If you want a movie where the plot twists have young love on the various rocks, aliens inhabiting and using your body. It turns out that humans are a decided problem. This is a movie worth the cost.

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.

I loved the movie. I read the book a few years ago and was wondering how they would do the internal voices as most of the book was in Melanie/Wanda's thought conversations and memory revealing. I went with 3 people that did not read it first and one that did. Seems you probably enjoy it more if you read the book because you understand the story better, but the 3 that did not read it enjoyed it too. My son just didn't like that there wasn't a lot of action, he's 12 :) and wanted to see GI Joe.
Overall an entertaining break from the everyday movie. I have been recommending it to my friends! I would say GO

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.
