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 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 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.
