    Nothing good to say, I'm sorry. Poorly scripted and developed. Disappointing... Final score: 4.5/10

    If you have no more thing in life to do, this one is still not worth to do

    A brilliant love story with great character and emotional development, combined with Niccol's direction and script, the performances of the cast, Pinto's score, Schaefer's cinematography, Nordberg's editing, Nicholson's production design, Jeunesse's set decoration, Benach's costume design, the emotional and sisterly bond that develops between Wanda and Melanie and the visual effects, The Host represents something that is not always often seen in movies, and that is the development of the bond between Wanda and Melanie which seems so unlikely because both are from different worlds, but, they find a way to share the same body and develop the sisterly bond that would've never been possible if they hadn't learned to be allies!

    Book was only good because it delved into the personal thoughts of the character, the movie doesn't do that so it shows its true colors of being just a teen romance.

    One of the best movies i have ever seen , you must watch it . i think that many people who's critics this movie don't understand it. You must decide by yourself ;)

    I think this got more hate because of the twilight predecessor and writer. In many reviews they cant help mentioning at least on or both. Perhaps also because the movie has no main villain as you can relate to both parties so appears slow and boring where it is actually insightful and fresh. It will not appeal to the usual sci fi fanatic expecting glorious fight scenes and death battles. Which i find so over done anyway. I think the acting was good i dont think the book to screen adaptation was great but by no means the awful score it is getting. I think if people watched this with an open mind and forgot aboit twilight they might enjoy it more. I do wish more was covered on the aliens themselves. Planets they've seen how they function in reproduction just more in general but the movie made me cry and made me smile so i cant much complain

    I have to admit the first time I saw it Saoirse Ronan's almost whispering voice bothered me. Luckily I stuck through the movie and was very happy that I did. I waited a while and then watched it again and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a great concept that I wished that they had made a sequel. I think you'll enjoy the movie.

    Unlike what some of the critics say, there is a lot of humor in this movie, but not so obvious. Specifically, there are a lot of puns with the name Wanda. As another example, there is deeper meaning when the uncle tells Wanda about the volcano.

    Its different cause its not humans vs aliens. Well it is, but it plays out so you really understand both sides. The aliens aren't just this evil force, that you cant relate to
