Life for Julie (Teresa Palmer) and R (Nicholas Hoult) couldn't be more different. R is a zombie; with a great record collection; limited vocab and an overpowering love of brain food. Julie is a human; beautiful; strong; open minded and all heart. When R makes an unexpected decision and rescues Julie from a zombie attack, his lifeless existence begins to have a purpose.

I thoroughly enjoyed this!!!
It's not the greatest film ever, but it is funny, heart warming and that little bit "different".
There are scenes that will remain with me and still make me smile when I think of them.
Would definitely recommend it!
... perhaps not to my older friends :-)

Survivors of a Zombie outbreak live in a city surrounded by walls that separate them from the living dead.

Grigio sends a group of teenagers, including his daughter Julie, to the outside to collect food and supplies. They are surprised by a group of zombies. Among them, R, who is a young zombie without recollections but very introspective.

R eats Julies boyfriends brain and revives his memories and sensations with Julie, and falls in love with her. He saves Julie from the other zombies and hides her.

They develop a strange relationship and become friends. Soon R changes his emotions and is capable to dream, and gradually to feel again.....

I wasn't looking forward to this, to me it just looked like another movie to fill Twilights shoes, but doing it with Zombies, and the fact the Julie is almost a dead spit for Kristen Stewart, it just put me off.

Its not often I'm wrong, but on this occasion, I was very wrong. Its a fun movie, riffing on Romeo and Juliet (we even get the balcony scene), but the concept works so well, even if R doesn't get shot by Julie (in any other Zombie movie, he'd be cannon fodder).

The two leads are great, and they have wonderful chemistry, but the support, especially from Corddry and Malkovich is wonderful, as well as the soundtrack.

But its pretty dark stuff, and I'm surprised that it was a 12a here in the UK, because the first act is scary, and violent.

But hey, I'm a father, so that's my little gripe over.

So all in all, its a great movie, criminally under-seen in cinemas, but what could have made it more remarkable, is if the makers went against the book narrative and have R killed at the end, that would have been just as tragic as Shakespeare's source.

Still good though.

If you're going to make a zom-rom-com (are those in the right order?) then Edgar Wright's superb Sean of the Dead is always going to be the high water mark you have to shoot for. With such little margin for error, it's perhaps lucky, then, that Warm Bodies has Isaac Marion's hugely popular 2010 YA novel as its starting point.

The film begins with Nicholas Hoult's R (he can't remember the other letters in his name) shuffling around a post-apocalyptic airport with his undead familiars. Through use of a handy voiceover, R reveals that he is frustrated with being unable to connect with anyone living or otherwise, and, as well as human flesh, craves some kind of meaning to his life.

This all changes, however, when R and a small band of undead comrades stumble upon a group of survivors, including K-stew lookalike, Julie (Teresa Palmer). First things first, though, and, whilst Julie and her band of scavengers pump some serious led into the groaning hoard, R happily chows down on Julie's boyfriend's brains.

This is where zombie purists may start to have a problem with Warm Bodies. In this Z-world, zombies get to experience the human memories of their victims whilst they consume their brains. On top of that, zombies can run and, after a while, they apparently give up on existence and turn into a boney; a skeletal and super-aggressive zombie 2.0. But, traditional or not, these tweaks actually underpin the best aspects of the film.

So, purely because he has eaten Julie's boyfriend and experienced love towards her, R decides to save her from the other zoms. He even begins to develop his own feelings for his new, non-rotten companion to boot. Obviously, this is an unconventional and forbidden love and the story is a real spin on Romeo and Juliet.

Format: DVD
This is perhaps the oddest adaptation of Romeo and Juliet to date. The names "R" (Nicholas Hoult) and Julie (Teresa Palmer) should clue you in. The film starts out with first person narration from "R", a zombie. He let's us know he can not connect with people, the theme of the film that zombies are simply people who have lost their connection to other people. If they can regain that connection, they can be cured or at any rate, not smell as bad.

In this tale "R" consumes the brains of Julie's boyfriend and gains his memory. This starts a platonic relationship where they protect each other from each other's world. "R" is a horder who lives in a plane. Julie's dad (John Malkovich) is the leader of zombie killers. The introduction of young kids with pseudo patriotic themes is a satire of the "Red Dawn" movies.

There are some questions that arise.
1) How do the skeletons, i.e. "bonies" stay together without falling apart?
2) How does a record player operate after 8 years into a zombie apocalypse with no electricity?
3) How does a person see their own face in their own memory?

This is a fun film, that drags at times. Will be a welcomed addition to my zombie film collection when it comes out. Almost a prequel to "Fido."

PARENTAL GUIDE: No sex or nudity. Zombie Rob Corddry whispers the F-bomb near the end of the film.
