Warm Bodies (2013)



Critic Consensus: Warm Bodies offers a sweet, well-acted spin on a genre that all too often lives down to its brain-dead protagonists.

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.

A muddled teenpic.

This is a love story, done with charm, humor, and tenderness.

I liked it better than Zombieland, if you're lookimg for something in a similar wheelhouse.

To truly appreciate this zombie Romeo & Juliet you either go all the way with it or not at all.

It's a toss-up which genre more needs the adrenaline boost Warm Bodies provides: the zombie movie or the romantic comedy.

Audience Reviews for Warm Bodies


There have been a lot of zombie shows recently and it would be understandable for people to be tired of the trope by now. This film freshens up things by introducing zombies that are self aware and maybe not entirely gone yet. It finds just the right balance of humor and suspense, being light-hearted while things are still at stake. That makes for a quite charming and entertaining take on the genre. The soundtrack is pretty great, too.

I only watched 30 minutes of this movie and it was enough to think that this is the worst movie ever made. I don't understand how someone like Jonathan Levine made in 2011 on of the best movies I've ever saw (50/50) and two years later he came up with this piece of crap. A film so inconsistent and full of nonsense, really..... do you really think a zombie could have feelings???? This movie shows zombies like a bunch of pussies. Zombies don't sleep, zombies don't dream and specially zombies don't talk. At least I didn't pay to see this on theatres (watched it on tv) but what I really lost is and hour and a half of my life. To conclude, this movie is a stupid waste of time

Really loved this!! So sweet, funny, and heartwarming (literally). I was not sure what to expect since it IS a zombie movie, but the plot is tight; there were no loose ends. The acting is first rate. It could have been a silly movie, but it was a perfect blend of drama, comedy, romance, and horror...with a universal, and important message at the end. Wonderful movie...
