I personally liked this a lot

I liked this movie. I had a little bit of an idea about what it was gonna be about or like before i went to see it. I thought things started slow and kinda dragged along for the first little bit. Once I feel it picked up & I could see things coming tougher it became fun to watch. Not a scary alien movie, not a crazy action movie, just a good story movie that kinda go's along. I liked the acting and how everything was kinda matrix like and calm except a few parts. Seeing Saoirse Ronan in a lead role other than Hanna. Cant wait to see her in more movies. I liked the score, the settings, the vibe, the feeling, the message, & the coolness of the movie. I recommend it but, it's not gonna be for everyone. I hope you who see it enjoy it like i did.

Go see for yourself

I think the film is a great idea. I saw it twice because of my daughter. I am happy to see that people can accept the separation between a body and a soul. Because of the truth in the story I'm on the side of storytellers and to heck with the critics. A critic can not make a movie–but an artist can and will influence a culture. Go see it. WP

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

Very Enjoyable

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.

Skip it!

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.
