"Could have been better but still worth a look"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

In this age of re release this is a classic example a movie in it's day was outstanding. The biggest issue is that the story jumps around making it feel unfocused. This would have been significantly improved by losing 20 to 30 minutes of superfluous story. Well worth a watch even if it's a little overlong.

Description

The Host

The Han River runs through the heart of Seoul and when the US military dumps toxic chemicals in the river, a monstrous mutant creature is conceived in its waters. Then suddenly the creature reveals itself and creates a path of destruction on the local residents by the river. Gang-du (Song Kang-ho, star of JSA, SYMPATHY FOR LADY VENGEANCE), who operates a snack bar on the riverbank, witnesses his only daughter, Hyun-seo, taken away by the creature right before his eyes.

The sudden and shocking appearance of the mutant creature renders the government and state powerless to act. The once-ordinary citizen, Gang-du, and his family, sneak past the military cordon and are thrust into a battle with the monster in a desperate attempt to rescue Hyun-seo and they are forced into an unstoppable showdown with the mutant monster.

Critic Reviews:

  • " As ebullient and bizarre as a monster that can do back flips, leaving the viewer in a shock of delight. " – Liam Lacey
  • " A horror thriller, a political satire, a dysfunctional family comedy, and a touching melodrama, Bong Joon-ho's The Host is also one helluva monster movie. " – Jim Emerson
  • " This is a ton of fun and puts most Hollywood monster movies to shame " – Rachel Wagner
