Storyline Heading
After a zombie epidemic, R (a highly unusual zombie) encounters Julie (a human survivor), and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as the two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human -- setting off an exciting, romantic, and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Horror Romantic - While having a zombie theme, at the film's core this is a young adult romantic comedy, but it does have the violence that one would associate with a more horror-oriented undead story. This is a big showcase for leads Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer, with all other actors including John Malkovich having distinctly secondary roles. Violence and language make the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average The film has its charms but the trailer suggests a level of cleverness and inventiveness that isn't evident in the full production.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good '"Warm Bodies' is terrific entertainment.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Below Average Cute without being especially clever, 'Warm Bodies' is almost as pallid and as brain-dead as its zombie antihero...

NY Post Full Review
Average The leads are likeable enough, but the script reanimates 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' tactics — a monster story supposedly made hilarious by being told by a savvy high schooler.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 69 moviegoers:
GREAT REVIEWS! The professional critic reviews were all over the place but it's certainly easy to see that MOVIEGOERS LOVED "WARM BODIES." As with nearly any movie, especially Zombie/Scary/Horror movies, there are always some reviews that are way different than the majority. Fortunately, "Warm Bodies" has a much smaller percentage of these lower reviews than normal movies of this type.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
An unlikely romance between a beautiful human teen and a sensitive undead slacker sets off a chain of events with the power to transform the world in WARM BODIES, the hilarious and heartwarming zombie action rom-com based on the popular novel by Isaac Marion.

It's a familiar scenario -- a mysterious virus has devastated civilization, turning its victims into flesh-eating monsters without memories of their past lives. What is left of humanity is holed up in heavily fortified bunkers where they live in fear of their former loved ones. But all that changes when a ravenous zombie hunting party crosses paths with a human reconnaissance crew scavenging supplies. R (Nicholas Hoult), a soulful zombie, is so captivated by the lovely and living Julie (Teresa Palmer) that, instead of eating her brains, he saves her from being consumed by his companions.

Taking her back to the zombie-ridden airport he calls home, R hides Julie in an abandoned 747 filled with treasures he has collected during his hunting expeditions -- vinyl records, snow globes, musical instruments and other lost relics of a saner time. Over the next few days in their surprisingly cozy hideaway, the feisty Julie awakens long-forgotten feelings in R, while she begins to realize there is more to him than a vacant stare and a slow-motion shuffle.

Confused by her feelings, Julie returns to her walled-off city where her father (John Malkovich), a ruthless zombie hunter, leads a well-armed security force. Meanwhile, the lovelorn R has begun to change in ways he never thought possible and believes his connection with Julie could be the salvation of the human race. But when he shows up at her doorstep, it sparks an all‐out war between the living and the undead that threatens to derail the couple's chance of a future together.

A fresh twist on a classic love story, WARM BODIES offers a surprisingly romantic look at the lighter side of the zombie apocalypse -- and reminds us what it means to be human.
