4.0 out of 5 stars Maybe not for zombie fans, 7 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Warm Bodies [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I've read the book so I was prepared for the storyline but fans of the usual sort of zombie movies will be disappointed by this. It is definitely aimed at the younger generation, even the trailers give that impression, Twilight, Hunger Games and The Perks of being a Wallflower. What all these films have in common; like them or not, is production quality and this film is no exception.
By now you will probably know that it is about a zombie who recovers his humanity after saving a human girl (who just happens to be gorgeous) because he has eaten the brains of her boyfriend and acquired his memories. R the zombie must be a recent revenant as he still looks pretty fresh and appears to retain a lot of human traits. He takes her back to the airport where he lives with all his zombie friends and so their relationship takes place.
Now of course if the zombies are going to become rehabilitated then what are we going to do for baddies. Enter the 'bonies' who are zombies in their final stage of metamorphosis, nasty animated skeletons with a hunger to match their attitude problem who get more than a little peeved when the lesser zombies begin to change.
And that is the theme of this story really, through love you can regain your humanity and maybe your life. Its a nice idea and its very well done, in fact I thought the ending of the film flowed better than the ending of the book.
Overall the film is quite true to the book so if you're a fan of the latter you won't be disappointed. If you watch the deleted scenes in the extras you'll see that the director considered following the book even more closely than he did.
This is a good quality blu ray with an excellent full screen presentation and a 7.1 soundtrack.

The Bonies in the book are far superior to the bonies in this film though! Which is very disappointing. Also none of the teaching the kid zombies and him marrying another zombie is included in the film. That said the film was good but I am enjoying the book a lot more!
