This movie is the perfect cross between humour, romance and horror. Every audience member is left both amused and scared.
Jonathon Levine, most known for directing the film 50/50, has in my opinion made one of the most amusing zombie films ever.
Warm Bodies is about the world post apocalypse, set in a city where most of the zombies have been living in an airport and the human survivors behind a wall to stay safe. Julie, daughter of the colonel heads into the city to collect medical supplies where she meets R who saves her. He’s different from the rest. He eventually takes her home but they have already affected other zombie’s lives. Can the zombies be cured?
Nicholas Hoult, an up and coming actor is pushed into the limelight as he plays the main character, R the zombie. We see the story from his characters point of view, who makes quirky, amusing comments all the way through the film.
‘What am I doing with my life? I just wanna connect. Why can’t I connect with people? Oh right, it’s cause I’m dead.’ – R
Is it possible for the humans and the zombies to live together as one? Can there be a cure?
There is an amazing fight at the end where we see the bonies (zombies too far gone that they ripped their flesh off) fighting against zombies and humans together but who will win the battle? What will become of the loser?
This film was based on a book and I think that Jonathon Levine has been successful in creating a whole new genre of zombie movies. I would recommend you put down whatever you are doing and go watch this film… if you dare.
Verdict: I would watch the film over and over, it’s something that you can just sit back and watch.
