The Host

The Host(2013)

Yes, The Host is pretty much exactly what you expect it to be; an interesting concept, borrowed from millions of other sci-fi films, watered down by hilariously laughable dialogue and a melodramatic, derivative romantic sub-plot. If there is a husk of enjoyment to be had, its from the talented Ronan. working her hardest to overcome the horrible material she has to work with, and Niccol, who stages some passable action set pieces amidst the overdramatic Twilight-esque swooning.
