One of those groundbreaking films that other directors and story writers will copy in years to come. Excellent storytelling excellent plot excellent acting, just excellent. It's not a chick flick but it is the story of Romeo and Juliet. With a twist that he's, you know.... a zombie. Lol

I did not think I would like this film, but It turned I turned out to love it. I don't like Zombie movies but this film was far more then that. It is an interesting film with a little bit of action, a little bit of funny, a little bit of love, and a whole lot of interesting

This movie was both entertaining and heartwarming. The classic “Romeo and Juliet” love story was given a new feel with this post-apocalyptic couple. R is not your typical zombie. For one thing he has actual feelings like none of the others do. When he meets Julie he feels like his life (his afterlife that is) finally has purpose. Julie is one of the only human survivors left. After escaping an attack she finds herself under Rs care. Since R has feelings he tries to be compassionate to Julie and her situation but she finds it hard at first to let her guard down. Once they really get to know one another and realize they are no harm to each other the two begin their own adventure to escape something more malicious than R and the regular zombies. Their quest also includes convincing every one of their love. The movie is basically a romantic comedy for people who hate romantic comedies. Action, horror and comedy are all rolled into one with this unlikely love story. I thought there was overall good acting especially by Nicholas Hoult. The cinematography throughout the film was also impecible, many different shots were used, they were all very effective. All of the sets looked lifelike. Everything gave off an end of the world vibe, like all zombie movies should. I would recommend this movie to anyone really, as long as they can handle a little gore. Some parents might find the overall concept frightening however, so 13+ might be an appropriate age group.

Cute zombie love story with happy ending. Chick flick.

The movie warm bodies is based off the original book. its about a zombie apocalypse that has a very different ending than expected. the two main characters acting styles and personalities in the film compliment each others very nicely. the music in the film suites both a romantic comedy and also a horror movie and most times. the cinematography stays with a lot of close up shots to the characters and also wide angle shots (in front or behind the characters) when running or doing a lot of action. the props were based around guns, cars, a camera, and basic human stuff as well. as well as the record player that we see in the beginning of the film. the costumes suit the film very nicely and very much distinct the characters through out the entire film. the setting mostly takes place throughout the airport as well as the suburbs. then also in the big city. the main characters R and Julie have to be my favourite characters even when it got to the love story. the target audience would have to be anywhere from 13 to any age really above that. anywhere younger they might get scared through some parts. but overall it is your typical romantic comedy with a hint of horror. If you like this film I recommend that you also check out Now you see me. And further more if you think that zombie movies are awful and you don’t think that any movie will change your mind, watch this one.

Cute zombie-human movie. Does not follow the common zombie films, so those looking for that will be disappointed.

A zombie apocalyptic coming-of-age romance. Wasn't expecting much. Amusing watch on a rainy day.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. Very predictable but still entertaining.

This movie was predictable but still entertaining.

The film Warm Bodies was directed by Jonathan Levine and is one of the cutest films I’ve seen in a long time. It takes place in a post- apocalyptic city that separates the living from the undead with a ginormous wall, cutting the city in half. The film is a romance about a zombie named ‘R’ whom of which can’t remember much about his life before he became a zombie. In the film he comes across a girl by the name of Julie, while saving her from a pack of hungry zombies. It is with Julie that ‘R’ starts to feel more and more human and soon enough they fall in deep love. This film in my opinion was very sweet and cute. It is not very serious, yet at the same time not silly, this film has the perfect balance between the two making Warm Bodies on of my favourite films. Both Nicholas Hault who plays ‘R’ and Teresa Palmer who plays Julie do a great job in this film and their chemistry is off the charts in Warm Bodies. The main themes that play out well in the film are Love and Friendship. I would recommend this film to anybody! It is sweet and cute and will leave you saying “Awww!” after every scene. This movie has a great message of the power of love and friendship behind it that I think we could all learn from. It seems to be more of a girly mushy film; however, it does have violence and gory scenes to help satisfy those with a thirst for more action. I really enjoyed Warm Bodies; I would rate it a 10/10!

Julie: I actually miss him. Nora: You... you miss... him... Julie: I know, I'm so stupid. Nora: Like... like you're attracted to him... Julie: No, I don't... Nora: Like... he could be your boyfriend? Your zombie... zombie boyfriend? [pause] Nora: I mean, I know it's really hard to meet guys right now, with the apocalypse and stuff. Trust me. And like I know that you miss Perry. But Julie, this is just weird. Like, I wish the internet was still working so I could just look up what whatever it is that's wrong with you.
