This was an excellent movie! I think that the movie did a great job of bringing the book to life--perhaps even better than the Twilight movies did, especially considering how much of the "action" in The Host occurs in the Melanie/Wanderer's head. Loved it!!

I went to the Thursday 9pm opening show. It was totally worth it. Such an awesome movie. It had enough action to make the guys not feel like they are at a sappy girlie movie.

I never read the book so I don't have anything to compare but the movie as is was great in my opinion. It's not super spectacular. It will not win an Oscar for anything. It was very entertaining. Now it doesn't say much but the acting was vastly better than what you saw in any of the Twilight movies. These actors actually know how show emotion. If you have any sort of romantic heart you will like this movie.

It seemed like they were in too much of a hurry to get through the story. The acting was only so so. The script wasn't very good. I really liked the last trailer they made, but it set me up for disappointment in the end. Mostly it was PG except for one scene which I think should not have made it into the movie. It was not in the book either anyway. Disney probably could have made two or three good movies from the book.
Loved the book. Movie was okay, I guess.
Critic Reviews were not very helpful either. Just a lot of derogatory nonsense.

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.
