Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Dopey, derivative and dull, "The Host" is a brazen combination of unoriginal science-fiction themes, young-adult pandering and bottom-line calculation. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Mar 28, 2013

Rotten: [A] bizarre Saturday Night Live sketch about a girl with a bratty alien inside her. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Mar 29, 2013

Rotten: Pick up the book. It does a far better job of breathing life into this monochromatic new world than the film. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Mar 28, 2013

Rotten: This is pretty silly stuff, Twi-lite if you will, but played with maximum solemnity, no discernible humor and minimal excitement. – Tom Charity,, Mar 29, 2013
