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.
Rotten: [A] bizarre Saturday Night Live sketch about a girl with a bratty alien inside her.
Rotten: Pick up the book. It does a far better job of breathing life into this monochromatic new world than the film.
Rotten: This is pretty silly stuff, Twi-lite if you will, but played with maximum solemnity, no discernible humor and minimal excitement.
What a waste of time & money!
A great thriller
