    Synopsis


    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. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Excellent Sci-Fi Adventure

      Don't be fooled by the Stephenie Meyer book-turned-movie. It's a great adventure through the eyes of the other - those that aren't like us and those that we not only fear but are feared by us. If you're looking for a romance with a twist, this is definitely worth a watch. Living of two minds can sometimes be hard, especially when one of those minds is an intruder.

      I don't buy a movie unless I know I will be able to watch it multiple times. The characters' emotional development provides the intensity in this sci-fy movie. Not surprising since that is the writing style of Stephanie Meyers. I did wait until the price came down on this movie before purchasing it, but it is still worth it!

      While the major elements of the story were all there, the movie left out some of the details from the book that made it interesting to me. They focused more on the romance, but whole that was interesting, the book added so much more to the story. Still an ok movie though!

      I watch a lot of films and this one "seems" to have left me flat. I have no memory of having watched it. I know I did. I have a standard protocol on that, even as that may sound elitist. I'm going to watch it again, but right now, don't rush into it.

      For those who loved the book, this movie is a fairly close adaptation. As with any movie based on the book there are some moments left out that would have been nice, but overall the movie is well done and interesting to watch,

      you really need to read the book in order to understand the movie well. I liked the movie but it was a little disappointing because they left out some key things that made the book so great.
