Movie Review: Warm Bodies

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

With much of the world's population now an undead horde, R is a young and introspective zombie. While fighting with and feeding on a human scavenger party, R meets Julie and feels an urge to protect her. What happens next is the beginning of a strangely warm relationship that allows R to begin regaining his humanity. As this change spreads through the local undead population like a virus, Julie and R eventually have to face a larger issue when the very nature of their friendship is challenged. Caught between the paranoid human forces and the ferocious "Bonies", zombies who are a mutual threat, R and Julie must find a way common bond bridge the differences each sides must overcome so that they all fight for a better world no one thought possible.. -IMDb

You know, I was all like:  "I've got to review Warm Bodies, because I just watched it!"  Well that was several days ago, and now I'm feeling like I don't know what to write.  Shit!  So, if this review is crappy (because it certainly will be), just pretend like it's awesome, like it should be.

This movie is...cute.  I don't think it was a WOWtastic, ah-mazing movie, but it was pretty good.  It had lots of quirky, cute moments between main characters R (zombie) and Julie.  Most of the action is packed into a scene in the beginning and one in the end.  Therefore, it might be kind of slow to some people and isn't for the action junkies out there.

However, it's not your usual zombie or romance movie, so it's nice have fresh idea for both of them.  The comedy seems to pop up at just the right time to give the movie a little flare.  I think it's worth a watch for almost anyone and couples should try this as opposed to something sappy like The Notebook.

Overall, I think the movie could have been better and is a just a tad bland, but it's definitely worth watching!
