mixes a unique style with a talented young cast to create a grizzly but likeable treat
| Original Score: 4/5
A strong ending can hide a multitude of sins, and Warm Bodies is perhaps the only zombie movie I've seen that sent me out of the theater feeling happy
| Original Score: B
A surprisingly-funny zombie film boasting a killer soundtrack and a great script.
| Original Score: 4.0/5
It's a zombie movie that's the opposite of a zombie movie, which is a reason to sorta love it.
I imagine if Taylor Swift made horror movies, "Warm Bodies" would be one of her creations.
while Levine's film may distinguish itself both as genre flick and romance, there are problems in its writing that no amount of unnatural love can quite cure.
This is a love story, done with charm, humor, and tenderness.
Warm Bodies is a charming, fresh and always funny "zom-com" with a lot of heart, thanks to director Jonathan Levine's ability to explore love in the most unexpected of places.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
As one might expect from a zombie romance, the film doesn't pack a lot of big ideas. Still, the concept is original, and watching it unfold is loads of fun.
| Original Score: 3/4
A reasonably diverting blend of horror, comedy and romance
| Original Score: 2.5/4
It may be no more than a post-modern update on Beauty and the Beast, but in its success we can see a whole new way of turning the walking dead into something beyond the scary
It starts bold and finishes timid and tepid, unable to do justice to its conceit.
| Original Score: 6/10
...an erratic yet passable entry in the teen-romance genre.
A wildly imaginative redressing of 'Romeo and Juliet' in stylish zombie clothing.
| Original Score: B+
Don't think too hard, just enjoy a zombie movie with a twist to go with its 'Walking Dead' charm.
Not too horrific, despite a few early attacks and munchings, this is worth it for the music, the genre joking, Palmer's cool performance and Hoult's committed turn as 'R', easily the sweetest zombie in all cinema.
| Original Score: 3/5
A fun mashing of genres that joins the spate of recent films that recasts traditional movie ghouls as misunderstood outsiders. Seems that even the Undead need love.
To call this an unlikely love story is an understatement, but it is precisely this level of weirdness that makes the romance between R and Julia so surprisingly touching.
With more romantic mushiness than the brain-chomping kind.
My zombie boyfriend.
