Top Critics' Reviews

Ronan, youthfully elegant as always, tries hard, but the material defeats her.
Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail - March 29, 2013


A goofball teenage sci-fi romance, "The Host" is an End of Days parable that seems like it was written at a slumber party.
Adam Graham, Detroit News - March 29, 2013


If only the movie played as nicely as it looked.
Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger - March 29, 2013


Long, tedious and often unintentionally hilarious.
Lou Lumenick, New York Post - March 28, 2013
