The Host «天煞逆緣» Movie Review

Thanks Golden Village for the invitation, I have the opportunity to attend the press screening of the upcoming sci-fi movie: The Host.

I am sure some of you are familiar with The Host as it is based on the novel written by Stephenie Meyer. Who has read it???

"The Host" is the next epic love story from the creator of the "Twilight Saga," worldwide bestselling author, Stephenie Meyer.

Language: English 
Release Date: 28 March 2013 
Running Time: 125 minutes

Trailer of The Host.

THE HOST is a riveting story about the survival of love and the human spirit in a time of war. Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact. Most of humanity has succumbed.

When Melanie (Saoirse Ronan), one of the few remaining “wild” humans, is captured, she is certain it is her end. 

Wanderer, the invading “soul” who has been given Melanie’s body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too-vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn’t expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind. When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.

Movie Rating: 4/5 stars

Now the fever for vampire and human's romance is subsiding, the next trend up will be alien.
One thing similar between Twilight and The Host is the love triangle relationship.

Initially I came to the movie without knowing what to expect, except for alien intervention. But after the movie, I was amazed by the storyline of the film. Melanie's love for her family and loved ones is so strong that it conquered all the danger. It's a little touching towards the ending and I teared.

Another thing I like about the movie is the love interest between the 2 male leads.
Messy relationship. Both Wanderer and Melanie are in love with different guys.

I like the sci-fi elements in The Host which keep me fascinated.

I love watching movie with happy ending as it lightened up my day with a smile after a tiring day at work. The  movie is really nice, I am going to re-watch it again and read up on the novel.

You should go watch it too. The action-packed scenes and romance will definitely keep you in suspense.

Choose to love.
Choose to believe.
Choose to fight.

The Host will be showing in Singapore on 28 March 2013.
