The Host (2013)

When an unseen enemy threatens mankind by taking over their bodies and erasing their memories, a young woman will risk everything to protect the people she cares most about, proving that love can conquer all in a dangerous new world.

Despite a star cast and good production value this sci-fi drama risks a silly plot (two souls in one body - and their internal conversations!) and loses; an attempt to recreate Gattaca's atmosphere and quality, but rather appears like an artsy Red Dawn.

Maltin**: "...long, dreary adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's novel. Science fiction has rarely been so dull."
