This review is from: Warm Bodies [DVD] (DVD)
Zombie folklore is everywhere at the moment..it seems to be the latest craze and here we have a refreshing, morbid and slightly melancholic take on a romantic comedy..the lead being a zombie who falls for a female human survivor.
Though the plot sounds pretty cheesy, Warm Bodies has a little more life to it than that. A little. pun intended. It manages to maintain a creditable amount of humor throughout, although the writing is far from original, the acting however is enchanting especially from Hoult as a man who is trying his hardest to fight the affliction he has been dealt. Twilight will be compared but this has more charm than those movies and i suppose skirts the sentimental line a bit, probably this is why i liked it though.
Its like Bub from Day of the Dead(the 1985 original) had been given his own movie and we get a first hand account of what it might be like to regain emotions we all take for granted sometimes. Not as frighteningly bad as you might pre conceive!
