Excerpt: "R" is a zombie, who struggles to be human. After eating a man's brain, he is close to being mortal again. *** The story, over-all, is not THAT BAD. However, it should have been presented in a more mysterious way. At the back of my mind, the story should go backwards, with that, the film could have been more interesting. I think, the cast adapted the "twilight" acting.
Excerpt: The opening scenes immediately signal this is going to be a different kind of zombie movie. Following the story from the zombie's point of view is the film's highlight, with Hoult's dry internal monologue providing a lot of the humour. Combining a zombie apocalypse with a romantic comedy is certainly different, but it largely works really well, despite some initial contrivances to get Palmer's character to stay with the zombie.
Summary: It's creepy imagining zombies asorbing our memories by eating our brains & zombies falling in love with humans.It is interesting watching the relationship between R & Julie though.Warm Bodies is an OK zombie movie with a definite twist & something different that I would tell somebody to go check out but it's not something that I'd watch again.You'd think a movie like this would be better than what it was but like I said for me it was just OK
Summary: Well I. Wasn't sure whether I wanted to go see this movie or not when it was in theaters but I rented it one night and all I can say is why did I wait so long the movie was fantastic as all the reviews sayed it was it was a sweet love story with comedy and action mixed In wat a treat wonderful movie to say the most if u haven't seen it rent it tonight a perfect date movie as well good for both sexes but it is about a zombie falling in love with a human so if that sounds...
Excerpt: It is too hard to give a zombie film a passing grade. But looks like, this mentality is to be thrown away, because warm bodies is a warmer and easily a passing film of such genre. The motto of the film is straight. The zombies are the good who are changing with time. The Bonies are the scrap creatures who show some rough stuff. Nicholas Hoult known as Mr. R is understanding the real change in zombies.
Summary: What a surprise this film was. So charming. Warm Bodies benefits from two excellent lead performances from Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer; they carry this film nicely, but it's really the strong direction from Jonathan Levine (50/50) that makes the film work. Had someone else helmed the picture I don't think it would have been as effective as Levine's WB.
Summary: I was hoping this would be more than a "Twilight-with-Zombies" film and I wasn't disappointed. I'm a zombie fanatic, but I was surprised how much I liked this (well for a "romantic" movie anyway). The characters were a lot of fun, as was the story, and hearing Nicholas Hoult narrate his typical zombie lifestyle was a great opening. The pacing could have been a bit better, but overall, I think it exceeded my expectations.
Summary: Despite being a clever and sweet take on the zombie genre, I found it hard to warm myself up to Warm Bodies. It's a film that I found I was admiring more than actually enjoying. Or maybe I'm just a heartless zombie myself and wasn't in the proper mood to really get into it. Though as it stands with me now, I found it to be not very engaging, and too eagerly satisfied with it's own cleverness. Ultimately I was left feeling cold and just a little bit dull.
Excerpt: "He's bleeding...he's alive." Perry is killed by R, a zombie. Uncharacteristically, he saves Julie and tries to get to know her. M, R's best friend, becomes suspicious. The soundtrack, as good as it may seem, doesn't match certain scenes. The story's pace is slow and moves based only on memories. It was weird seeing R run when admittedly he moves slowly. Nicholas Hoult's portrayal makes the film watchable because of its believability and delightful his role.
