Let down

I had high high hopes for this movie because it is one of my all time favorite books. I'm obsessed with it- read it like 5 times. The movie was just awful and I nearly left. Boring music, poor choices for actors and actresses (apart from the seeker), and overall just a bad film. It was trying to be the next teenie bopper twilight, but I even enjoy those movies more. It didnt even begin to develop the characters in a way that people can connect with and enjoy. Anyway, I was just let down that the butchered the movie of my favorite book.

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.

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.

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.

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.
