MOVIE REVIEW: THE HOST (Andrew Niccol, 2013)


The only good thing about this movie was that it wasn’t Twilight. I expected more from the director of Gattaca and writer of The Truman Show.

It was just beyond awful. The clunky storytelling made everything unintentionally funny. No wonder it bombed in the US. Poor Saoirse Ronan.

The endless voiceovers that probably worked on paper failed to translate on film. At least the movie made me want to read the book.

I’m very curious to know what my Theology professor has to say about this soul transference thing. Now that would be interesting.

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆
