Okay, *Warm Bodies is not your average Rom-Com BUT a Rom-Com it is!
Warm Bodies is not your average Zombie Movie BUT a Zombie Movie it is!!
Now, the premise may be a weird one, boy meets girl, boy wants to eat girl, being a zombie and all but boy decides not to eat girl but instead, protects her from all the other brain-eating bozos out there.
The movie is based on the novel by Isaac Marion and adapted for the screen by Jonathan Levine.
From the outset the film let’s you know not to take it too seriously, that it is prepared to poke fun at its own premise and it brings you into the story without making it too campy or too serious.
With decent performances by the leads, Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer it kept me entertained through to the end, in fact, surprisingly, making me root for the couple and the good zombies to succeed.
Don’t let the naysayers put you off by comparing this to the Twilight series of movies, saying it dumbs down Zombie flix the same way Twilight made a, supposed, mockery of the Vampire Genre.
Warm Bodies does not try to be anything other than it is and that is an entertaining movie with enough to keep me entertained and happy till the end.
I give Warm Bodies a healthy:
