The Host

'The Host' is a South Korean monster movie which I had high hopes for.
It's arrived here on DVD with great critical reviews.Unfortunately, it just didn't do it for me.

The start is really good and the monster is quite cool and well-realised but the characterisations are weak and the director's sneaky political pokes sit uneasily within the format.
The little Korean girl is excellent though.

'Afraid I can't recommend it but that doesn't mean you shouldn't see it if you fancy a commercial sub-titled movie with a cool monster.
