Movie Reviews:

    Boston Globe - by Ty Burr
    The Host will make perfect sense to 12-year-old girls, while their college-age sisters will probably laugh themselves sick and their mothers will look at Hurt and wonder when he got so old. ...read more

    Chicago Sun-Times - by Roger Ebert
    The Host is top-heavy with profound, sonorous conversations, all tending to sound like farewells. The movie is so consistently pitched at the same note, indeed, that the structure robs it of possibilities for dramatic tension. ...read more

    The A.V. Club - by Tasha Robinson
    The Host is a step up from the endless metaphorical lectures and gaping plot holes of Niccol’s last film, In Time, but its muffled emotions, delivered with Twilight-esque blank-eyed calm, put it in the same category of a creative idea hamstrung in execution. ...read more

    Village Voice - by Alan Scherstuhl
    As with the Twilight series, The Host's infelicities—drab dialogue, ridiculous plotting, more emotional crises than there is story—are enlivened by its thematic eccentricities. ...read more

    USA Today - by Claudia Puig
    Saoirse Ronan's talents are wasted on a foolish dual part in this dull sci-fi fantasy. ...read more

    The Hollywood Reporter - by Todd McCarthy
    There's something about novelist Stephenie Meyer that induces formerly interesting directors to suddenly make films that are slow, silly and soporific. ...read more

    Variety - by Scott Foundas
    Extravagantly silly but undeniably entertaining sci-fi soap opera. ...read more

    Movie Nation - by Roger Moore
    'Twilight' of the Body Snatchers, without much urgency or sexual heat. ...read more

    Tampa Bay Times - by Steve Persall
    The Host doesn't strive for social allegory, as previous body snatcher flicks have done with the Red Scare, civil rights and Watergate. If anything it's merely a teenage girl's fantasy checklist for prom. ...read more

    New Orleans Times-Picayune - by Mike Scott
    Niccol and Meyer -- who co-produces this, her first post-"Twilight" film -- choose to trade away any shred of the ripe social subtext that has made other body-snatcher films so rich. In its place: the kind of supernatural, star-crossed romance that generates so much swooning from Team "Twilight." ...read more

    New York Daily News - by Elizabeth Weitzman
    Watch closely and you might even spy a better film inside, straining to break free. ...read more

    Arizona Republic - by Bill Goodykoontz
    The movie, based on the novel by Stephenie Meyer of “Twilight” fame and directed by Andrew Niccol, is just kind of dumb. Like the more famous books and movies, about a love triangle between a vampire, a werewolf and a human girl, it often plays like a teenage girl’s idea of how literary romances play out. ...

    Rolling Stone - by Peter Travers
    The Host basically comes down to a vote for Team Jared or Team Ian. I voted myself into oblivion about half an hour in. Niccol, who once added mystery and suspense to the sci-fi of 1997's "Gattaca," is no match for the giant marshmallow that is The Host. ...read more

    Washington Post - by Michael O'Sullivan
    It’s a mushy and unsuspenseful melodrama. ...read more

    Los Angeles Times - by Betsy Sharkey
    The story goes slack onscreen, so much so that the movie's two-plus hours will seem an eternity. ...read more

    The New York Times - by Manohla Dargis
    Dopey, derivative and dull, The Host is a brazen combination of unoriginal science-fiction themes, young-adult pandering and bottom-line calculation. That sounds like it should work (really!), but it never does, largely because the story is as drained of energy as are its moony aliens. ...

    Its title, very graciously, doesn't end with a "Part 1," but The Host sure has enough plot points and ideas to fill two installments. ...read more

    New York Post - by Lou Lumenick
    A long, tedious and often unintentionally hilarious adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s sci-fi follow-up. ...read more

    Miami Herald - by Connie Ogle
    An invasion of the body snatchers is preferable to realizing that the true horror perpetrated here is not on the characters but on the audience. ...read more
