Movie Reviews

  • this is pretty silly stuff, "Twi"-lite if you will, but played with maximum solemnity, no discernible humor and minimal excitement
    by Tom Charity [ ]
  • the movie serves as an excellent substitute for the book: better art direction and a quarter of the adjectives
    2.5 of 4 by Ty Burr [Boston Globe ]
  • the movie is arid, inert, inept, dumbly preposterous, and endless
    Review rate : F by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • 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
    1 of 5 by Manohla Dargis [New York Times ]
  • set in a future where alien conquerors have banished disease, violence and pollution - but not visible panty lines
    1 of 4 by Lou Lumenick [New York Post ]
  • but if you were hoping for some simmering passion a la Bella-Edward-Jacob from "the souls" - the parasitic invaders taking over earthling bodies - pick up the book
    1.5 of 5 by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
  • "The Host" wastes most of its two hours on high-school-caliber drama
    by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post ]
