TOP 500 REVIEWERon 10 November 2016
This 2013 RomCom is set 8 years after a zombie apocalypse where R, a zombie, spends his days wandering around an airport filled with his fellow undead but while R and a pack of zombies are out hunting for food, they encounter human Julie Grigio and a group of her friends and things are about to change forever.
This horror puts a different spin on the Zombie genre as these zombies have some memories, very primitive speech and a conscience, but it also gives an explanation why Zombies like brains. It uses some flashbacks which helps maintain interest, as does the dark humour. The script is clever, the world suitably bleak and the new spin is a revelation.
The disc opens to 3 trailers then offers play, scene selection, special features [has a host of features including deleted scenes, gag reel, make up and acting features as well as other topics] and set-up options [5.1 audio, subtitles for HoH on/off]. Rated 12 this does have some gruesome zombie action and intense moments but there is little else to offend providing you like zombie movies! Sure it’s a bit out there in places but it is about zombies and if you like ‘Wasting Away’ you’re almost certain to like this, especially if you prefer vinyl to Ipods [just watch it].

You are normally either a fan of zombie films or not, this is one of them films that most people are going to love. It's so much more than zombies.

Although it is based around zombies, I don't think that being about zombies is that important, its about how things adapt and change, its about how even a zombie can fall in love and how that love changes everything forever.

Nicholas Hoult plays his role perfectly, he is R (He only remember his name begins with R) and this is his story, about how he found love, about how he was changing, about how beautiful the world is. Is this because of what he does, or what he is, who knows, only you will be able to decide that.

There isn't really much gore in this film, which to me is great, I think other zombie films tend to go way over the top with the blood and gore. This is more of a romance/love/comedy with a zombie film more than anything else. You do see scenes of R munching on brains, after all, you get your victims memory from eating brains, so why not ? And there is some shooting, well lots of shooting in places, you have to kill zombies somehow ? Its got a 15 rating and that suits it well. Its could make a good family film if you don't have younger children.

The soundtrack goes really well with this film the way music plays an important bit when needed and how it makes you laugh at other times.

As far as comedy-horror rom-com goes this surpasses all of them. With Teresa Palmer and Analeigh Tipton among the cast and John Malkovich more restrained than usual; this movie entertains because off its unusual approach. An apocalypse has Left the U.S. With infected bodies from an unknown source.. These zombie creatures must feed on humans in order to survive. Our hero zombie relates the story in a cohesive manner bellying his dead rotting body and (extremely well made-up)putrid looks.What transpires is an extremely well thought out romantic plot that re-humanizes the zombies but is hampered by the well past flesh bones who will stop at nothing to destroy anything remotely living along with an army of living humans that have to defend themselves from both and are reluctant to believe that zombies may not be as dead as they imagined. Well worth watching even if your not a zombie freak!

What a great idea! A zombie movie told from the perspective of the zombies - Nicholas Hoult is great as `R', an unfortunate victim of an unspecified plague that has left the majority of the population as the shuffling undead, and the remainder (led by an austere John Malkovich) hiding behind a huge wall, occasionally venturing out in order to reduce the surplus (zombie) population. R is different from other zombies - he thinks, listens to (admittedly bad) music on a turntable, and `lives' in an abandoned aeroplane, contemplating his meaningless existence and occasionally imbibing the memories of the non-zombie few by eating their brains. When he meets Julie (Malkovich's spirited daughter), R finds a new purpose, and to the amazement of all, the unthinkable begins to become reality.
A fine, original and engaging movie - if a little slight. Warm and appealing performances (although JM is as ever an acquired taste), I would certainly recommend it as an antidote to those Twilight yawn-fests and the like.

I've got old. Do you know how I know this? Because I don't care about any of these teen fantasy films that are coming out. 10 years ago I would have watched anything to do with science fiction or horror, but watching children go through puberty as a vampire has no interest to me. This attitude is more common than you may think; just look at all the teen novel adaptations that no one bothered to see. The problem is that the likes of `Warm Bodies' is mixed up with the dross. It may be based on a teen fiction novel that has people in their late teens/early 20s going through relationships, but this one is good!

Nicholas Hoult plays R, a zombie going about his daily ramble when he sees Julie. Suddenly his heart skips a beat. No big deal, except for the fact his heart has not beaten for years. `Warm Bodies' is one of those fabled Rom Zom Coms, but unlike `Shaun of the Dead' this film concentrates most on the Rom over the Com (but there is still plenty of Zom). The film works best as an observational comedy. It pokes fun at being a teenager, but also the proliferation of zombie films in recent years. It is able to do this because it adds something to the genre. The zombies of `Warm Bodies' may not be dead, but just ill. The film explores how humans would react should the undead become slightly less dead (The Unundead).

Hoult is as always a likable screen presence, his everyman style means that you can like R without being intimated by smouldering stares or poor acting. Teresa Palmer has less to do as Julie, but you can kind of tell why you would come back from the dead for her. The film is full of good performances; even John Malkovich seems awake this time. The issues with the film are that it is a little twee. The need to appease the teen audience means that the sense of threat is not quite high enough. I would have liked a little more gore to give the film added bite. As it is, this is probably the most gentle zombie film I have seen; perhaps it would be good viewing for a deadite newbie?

The film is well shot and should be seen on BluRay, although some of the cheaper special effects may be highlighted. The extras are interesting and chart the adaptation of a book that was being written as the film's preproduction was underway.

Likeable teen comedy romance with a twist: zombie meets girl, kills her boyfriend and eats his brain: as he puts it himself, it's a great way to learn about the girl, if a little unorthodox. John Malkovich co stars as the girl's father and head of the militia and gives his usual solid performance with added ham. Plenty of funny "asides" from Nick Hoult as he tries to coach his new would be girlfriend how best to blend in with the other zombies and a feel good ending to please everyone. Park your brain and give it a go: it doesn't take itself too seriously and there are worse ways to spend an hour and a half.

I'm only really saying that because it's the only heartwarming Zombie movie I've seen, but It really is heartwarming, and I can't imagine it's previously been done as well as this.
It's really easy to hear about the premise of this movie and instantly imagine it to be a cheap wacky movie about a zombie who falls in love, but it's done is clever enough way for it to be pulled off as a respectable concept. The movie definitely has ever so slightly silly comedy elements, but I don't think they take you away from a believable universe.

The characters are very likeable (Especially R and his best friend).
The music is really nice and enhances the touching scenes quite nicely.
The only thing I didn't like was the CGI of the Bonies, but I pretty much hate most CGI.

Overall I recommend this movie to anyone.

Very enjoyable mix between Shawn of the dead, I am legend, Scrubs and Romeo and Juliet of course.
From the start the main character R gives an funny and sometimes poignant internal monologue (much like JZ does in scrubs) about life (or non-life) from the zombie's POV, it's weird to be seeing gruesome quite serious scenes of humans struggling to escape a zombie carnage, straight out of a straight-laced zombie movie like Dawn of the Dead but with a narration like "my breath doesn't smell that bad does it?". It's far cleverer and funnier than most zombie spoofs, less slapstic.
