A parasitic alien soul is injected into the body of Melanie Stryder. Instead of carrying out her race's mission of taking over the Earth, "Wanda" (as she comes to be called) forms a bond with her host and sets out to aid other free humans.

A great opening is drowned by the next two hours of slow, boring torture.

I'm not by any means a fan of Stephenie Meyer's work, but I did enjoy her book "The Host".
I know that film adaptations often aren't as good as the original source (even great films like "A Clockwork Orange", "Trainspotting" or "The Lord of The Rings"), but this one in particular, as a person who liked the book, turned out as a very disappointing movie.

SciFi doesn´t always have to be epic battles, space ships and ray guns. In fact, Science Fiction is often better when it has a meaning.
I´m not saying this is an epic piece of filmmaking but it´s hardly a wash-up or waste of time. I think it´s an ok movie that actually could even been better had they focused more on the conflicts of the characters.
