Warm Bodies offers a sweet, well-acted spin on a genre that all too often lives down to its brain-dead protagonists.
A funny new twist on a classic love story, WARM BODIES is a poignant tale about the power of human connection. After a zombie epidemic, R (a highly unusual zombie) encounters Julie (a human survivor), and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as the two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human - setting off an exciting, romantic, and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world.

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.
This is a love story, done with charm, humor, and tenderness.
It's all very silly and sweet in that indie-nostalgic way that Levine ('The Wackness' and '50/50') has made his own.
Warm Bodies doesn't even have the conviction to follow through on its lame ideas, let alone its good ones. It's a mostly terrible film that misses the opportunity to be a merely mediocre one.
This is a bloody fresh twist on the zombie genre.
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.
Warm Bodies proves a movie can have a lot of heart even when the heart of one of the characters isn't beating.
Warm Bodies is an ingenious hybrid that, at its best, manages to be funny, lyrical and gruesome.
The film does win you over. This is largely in part to its pair of young actors, Hoult and Palmer, who and have a great deal of chemistry and inject a zip and a fizz into all of their scenes.
Warm Bodies goes straight on to my guilty-pleasures list.
Let's be clear: This is a popcorn flick. The CGI effects are laughable, and it takes a while to adjust to the willfully cheeseball tone, but once it clicks, it's irresistible. In this world, all you need is love. And sometimes a shotgun.
This is such a well-written, well-acted, and well-paced film with a great payoff at the end that it proves that "adorable" and "zombie movie" are capable of coexisting together.
mixes a unique style with a talented young cast to create a grizzly but likeable treat
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
A surprisingly-funny zombie film boasting a killer soundtrack and a great script.
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.
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.
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.
A reasonably diverting blend of horror, comedy and romance
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...
The Zombie genre has been done to death, excuse the pun, so trying to make an original on the subject his difficult. Here, director Jonathan Levine has achieved just that, although he has done so in changing what a Zombie actually is. I'm going to raise my hand here and say 'Cheat'! The rules are clear, you can bend them but you can't break them, this is not a proper Zombie film. Still, I did enjoy it, although it wasn't the film I expected from director Jonathan Levine and I don't think it's as good as his previous work. I think I would have preferred a less happy ending but it is what it is.
Quite a high rating for a teen movie, I must say.. But IMHO, 'Warm Bodies' is no more than just another absurd fantasy love story even though that makes this movie unique.. The story, the cast and their performance just forgettable, nothing special on it.. It was a decent watch, no more..
Julie: No, I'm serious, Nora. I mean, "Corpse" is just... It's just a stupid name that we came up with for a state of being that we don't understand.
R: I don't want to hurt you. I just want to feel what you felt, to feel a little better, a little less dead.
Julie: Well, you know, you could just give yourself one. Just pick one. Whatever you want.
Julie: Really? You don't want to know what it was? You don't want your old life back?
R: Say something human, say something human, say something human. How are you? Nailed it.
