It's not gruesome enough to please genre fans, but not nearly funny enough to be a comedy either. It tries to be a mixture of both and fails.

The film's intentions are way too good for its own good, producing bloodless romance and more shamefully bloodless carnage.

Time Out Chicago

Good luck ascribing a clear satirical agenda to Jonathan Levine's tonally uneven zomcom, which suffers an identity crisis nearly as severe as its protagonist's.

The Skinny

Thrown together and laughably bloodless, its only reason for existing seems to be to cash in on a tween obsession with the romantic entanglements of the semi-living.

It wants to be funny, charming, scary, and dramatic. It ends up being a little of each but not successful as any one.

The whole of "Warm Bodies," in both its comic and dramatic strains, lacks a certain ... what? Ooomph? Intensity? Invention?

Warmed Over is more like it. A nifty premise and likable lead (Nicholas Hoult)cannot make up for the film's overall blandness.

Though on the surface falling in line with any "Twilight" film, "Warm Bodies" is better produced, acted and written, which isn't saying a lot.

A Frankenstein's monster of comedy, romance and horror that's less than its parts, Warm Bodies entertains but underwhelms.

Witless, lackluster and uneven despite a charismatic performance by Nicholas Hoult.

Most disturbingly, defence against the dead people is guns; the fact that this is common silliness in zombie movies doesn't make it any better ... It reconfirms the gun-obsession that grips America; they even shoot dead people

Lyles' Movie Files

For those who gleefully go along with the premise, it's surprisingly touching and hilarious. Those reared on "Resident Evil" games like me, probably can't buy into a zombie romantic comedy.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A romantic comedy with zombies that has only sputtering comedy that is mostly undersold by its cast, and zombies that never entirely make sense or feel like a credible threat.

It's not that I disapprove of zombie-human dating. I just don't like having my brain eaten by dead writing.

Featuring an inept use of on-the-nose music over an insipid narrative that poses as satire, "Warm Bodies" should be taught in film schools for its cornucopia of mistakes that filmmakers should avoid at all costs.

I imagine if Taylor Swift made horror movies, "Warm Bodies" would be one of her creations.

Hoult and Palmer provide engaging performances and keep things watchable and Levine's soundtrack is admittedly cool. But overall Warm Bodies struggles to convince.

Warm Bodies pulls a nifty trick in the red-hot zombie genre: It lacks a brain, though it eats plenty of them.

We're left with a setup that guarantees only 15 minutes of wholehearted enjoyment, followed by 80 minutes of intermittent mild amusement.
