As a string of mysterious killings grips Seattle, Bella, whose high school graduation is fast approaching, is forced to choose between her love for vampire Edward and her friendship with werewolf Jacob.
A race of non-corporeal, parasitic aliens who go from planet to planet looking for hosts have come to Earth and basically taken over the human race. It's believed that, once inside a body, all memories of the host human are gone. Some few free humans remain hidden from them, forming a resistance group. When an alien Seeker captures a girl named Melanie and puts a Wanderer in her body, she hopes to find out where the remaining humans are gathered, but Melanie, a strong fighter able to converse with the alien in her commandeered body, convinces the Wanderer to say nothing. Disappointed by the lack of progress (though suspecting an empathy for the human), the Seeker informs the Wanderer that she'll be removed and placed in a new host while she herself will enter Melanie. With human lives at risk, Melanie convinces Wanderer to run away and hide out with the humans, but finding them doesn't mean they'll allow an alien presence among them. Jared (Melanie's boyfriend) wants her dead, but Jeb... Written by

When Melanie/Wanda is driving the blue Volvo through the desert and struggling about which direction to go, the device that makes the car do the spontaneous flip can clearly be seen on the bottom left side of the car, just in front of the rear left wheel. See more »
The earth is at peace. There is no hunger. There is no violence. The environment is healed. Honesty, courtesy and kindness are practiced by all. Our world has never been more... perfect. Only, it is no longer our world. We've been invaded by an alien race. They occupy the bodies of almost all human beings on the planet. The few humans who have survived are on the run.

The Host is one of those films I went to see for the actors and the hype. I have to say, it did amuse me when I saw the 9% rating on Rotten Tomatoes this morning.
However, it wasn't as bad as most of the critics think. It did have its moments. Of course, the start is very weird as Saiorse Ronan starts talking to herself. Once you get used to it, it's not that bad.
The movie is also hilarious in some parts - both unintentionally and intentionally. Watch for the bit where Melanie/Wanderer is reunited with her family.
Some parts were also awfully cheesy - but I like to think it often pokes fun at itself. Maybe. Hopefully.
Also, some parts of the story which were actually interesting were not delved deep enough into. Having not read the book, I can't say how accurate the movie is, but it concentrates more on "Oh my god I like Jareeeed, Oh my God you like Ian!" than the actual, y'know, humans being invaded and taken over by Hosts. Maybe that was the fault of the author, but it did have a lot more potential in the actual storyline department.
However, the acting was decent-ish. Some of the action scenes were also cool. And the storyline was a hell of a lot better than Twilight.
To sum up: it was hilarious, and there's cute boys (because that's why they made it hurrr). It wasn't as bad as some critics are saying, but it wasn't the most fantastic movie ever, either.
