The Host (2013)

TheHostDespite the fact that “The Host” has all the needed ingredients to be a good movie, it turns out to be a mediocre one. The idea of an extraterrestrial life taking over a human body is not a new one (See the “Invasion of the Body Snatchers“, 1978). There is however some originality in the fact that the human consciousness remains along with the invader in the human body as well as the benevolent nature of the invaders. This provides for a totally different story A story and film which does not turn as good as it could have been. It is hard to believe that “The Host” was created by Andrew Niccol, the director and writer of Gattaca, one of the best science fiction movies ever and writer of “The Truman Show” which is one of its kind.

My rating: 05/10
