I was really really hoping that The Host was going to be a great movie

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

For a person who has not read the book or for that matter any of Stephanie Meyer's book, I totally enjoyed this movie. The actors were convincing and the scenery was spectacular. Although the idea of being taken over is not new this was treated quite interestingly.

I read the book and was very excited to see the film. The book does not translate to the screen. It winds up being corney and many times I thought about walking out. Just skip it.

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.

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.
