Lazily follows the same formula as Meyer's other works, but insert aliens where you'd think vampires. Full Review

The Host might have been stronger as a TV series, with more time to spend on character development and a gradually building plot, but Niccol's cool direction and his solid cast make is a perfectly watchable genre piece. Full Review

3 stars out of 5 -- Niccol effectively envisions a future where cool hi-tech is set against warm earthiness.

Rating: .5/4 -- The Host fails as a romance, but it also struggles as an adventure film. The body-snatching angle has been done before, and the aliens... aren't menacing enough. Full Review

The acting, as well as Andrew Niccol's writing and direction, are all awful; I can't in good conscience recommend that anyone see this film. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- The Host wraps up cleanly but it's clear from the ending that, all going well, there will be a second instalment. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Those who found Twilight nauseating will find The Host has the same overlong runtime, cornball characters, and artificially pumped up romantic stakes. Full Review

Product Description:

A body-snatching alien takes possession of a young woman who refuses to surrender her mind, and together they seek out the man they both love as writer/director Andrew Niccol (GATTACA, IN TIME) adapts TWILIGHT author Stephenie Meyer's New York Times best-seller. The majority of the human race have been possessed by unseen invaders, leaving only small pockets of "wild" humans like Melanie (Saoirse Ronan) scattered throughout the world. Upon being captured by the invaders, Melanie finds her body claimed by Wanderer, a spirit that has been warned of the difficulties that come with claiming a human host. In the process of inhabiting Melanie, Wanderer is deeply affected by her vivid dreams and memories. And when Melanie fights to maintain control of her mind even as Wanderer possesses her body, the sympathetic entity joins her on a journey that will reveal the unfathomable depths of human love and compassion.
