Hmmm... You would think that Hoult playing a brainless, expressionless zombie would suit him down to a tee. Alas, NO! This is just as tedious you expect it to be and not even the excellent Malkovich can save this from being utter talentless tripe!

Yeah the little puke from skins is well cast as playing a brain-dead emotionless corpse.

If this was supposed to be a comedy, it's not funny. If it's supposed to be a horror it's not scary. If it's supposed to be a romantic drama, then it's simply dull. There are some decent performances, but in the end, this is Romeo and Juliet with zombies and doesn't work on any level.

Agreed. It's billed as a zom-rom-com... he's barely a zombie to begin with (and she doesn't even seem that disturbed by him), the romance is forced and it barely raised a titter. Very disappointed.

Warm Bodies is a smart, funny and touching film about a zombie named R who saves Julie from a zombie attack. It has great performances, a brilliant script and intelligent directing.

Check out my site to read a full critique of the movie.

Nothing like any other Zombie movie I have watched before. Captivating from the very first scene to the last. Definitely worth watching!

Overall, I found it to be rather sweet and slightly fascinating, but the purist in me couldn't detach from the fact that the zombies here may look in keeping with the Romero-school, but they don't follow any of the same rules. A valiant effort, and still a better zombie film than World War Z.

At times uncomfortably awkward, Warm Bodies is an often amusing, always "warm-hearted" love story which reworks the zombie formula in new and interesting ways. There is fun to be had here... just not as much as you'd hope.
