  • Excerpt: Cinematographer Roberto Schaefer has opted to give the film a sunkissed tint which suits the locations perfectly. Although intentionally warm, colours are still natural, especially skin tones. Blacks are perfect, very deep and inky and with no signs of crush at any point.

  • Conclusion: The Host would be best served if Meyers and Niccol were removed completely and replaced with a stronger storyteller and more daring screenwriter and director. As is, the film quite ironically lacks soul, or anything else notably human for that matter.

  • Excerpt: Stephenie Meyer, author of the popular Twilight books, switches gears from vampires to parasitic aliens in this new series. The overwhelming success of the Twilight and Hunger Games films has spawned this new genre of super-gifted, super-hot teenagers in super-dangerous situations.

  • Excerpt: On October 5, 2005 author Stephenie Meyer published the book Twilight . Looking back over the past eight years, we know what happened with that book and that series. We’ve got young teen love, vampires, werewolves and a whole lotta angst to go around.

High-Def Digest
1 July 2013
  • Conclusion: Excruciatingly dull, hilariously maudlin, and quite frankly, idiotic, Andrew Niccol's 'The Host,' an adaptation of the popular Stephenie Meyer book, is a laughable dud that frustrates the imagination more than it inspires an intellectual discussion, with a nonsensical and preposterous plot about...

  • Excerpt: Set far in the future, either in the glistening chrome world overtaken by aliens or the dusty desert hideout of the last remaining humans, The Host looks like exactly the kind of smart, almost-realistic sci-fi you want.

  • Excerpt: Let this be acknowledged, for anyone trying to make a serious science-fiction movie where the lead is a fragile but gutsy teenager who constantly argues, in voiceover, with the alien invader piloting her body around: Few young actors are better equipped for the role than Saoirse Ronan.
