The Host

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.

I think this film is a great interpretation of the book.

This film was a very good adaptation of the book. Visually it was spot on with how I saw it unfold in my head as I read the book. The acting was very good also as it is really hard to convey this type of book since most of the acting is inside the character's minds. The special effects were good too, but this really is more of a chick flick than a sci fi.

i haven't read the book yet, but the movie even by itself was amazing. i wasn't expecting to like it, especially since it came from the person who created twilight (ok color me biased) but it was very well done and i can't wait to read the book.

If I hadn't read the book this movie would of made no sense at all. The only reason to watch this movie is to look at Max Irons.

By far the worst movie I have seen since... actually the worst movie I have seen ever. The acting was terrible, the plot was boring and far from being entertaining. And as if that wasn't bad enough, the script could have been better if a 5 year old wrote it. Seriously, don't even waste your time.
