Warm Bodies Movie Review

Warm Bodies is a novel by author Isaac Marion that hit the big screens on Feb 1, 2013. I realize I’m a little behind the times as far as reviewing this film, but I spent that weekend instead watching the Superbowl (YEAH RAVENS!) You keep hatin’, I’ll start this review.


STORY

The story for this movie is simple. It’s Romeo and Juliet meets Twilight (the zombie edition) meets a young Johnny Depp. The end result is a unique and fascinating story that is sure to bring out your inner tween with an addiction for sappy love stories.

R is a zombie unlike any other. He limps, grunts, and eats brains like a zombie, but he THINKS like a teenage boy. He’s in conflict with the whole being-a-zombie thing, but knows nothing else as his life before has been erased by the years. To feel, he eats brains and lives someone else’s memories.

Julie is a human who lives behind the wall. Her team of soldiers leave for the city one day on a mission to collect medical supplies, as their camp is running low. The mission goes completely wrong, and suddenly Julie finds herself under the protection of R as he tries to keep her hidden from those who are far worse than Zombies.

THE CAST

Nicholas Hoult as R

Teresa Palmer as Julie

Analeigh Tipton as Nora

Rob Corddry as M

Dave Franco as Perry

John Malkovich as Grigio

SPECIAL EFFECTS

There were creature called “Bonies,” which is what zombies would become when they gave up or starved. They are exactly what they sound like, nothing but bone and a terrible attitude. They chased after anything and everything with a heartbeat.

I won’t lie. They kind of terrified me…

MUSIC AND AUDIO
There wasn’t really a lot of music that caught my attention. They brought in some classic rock songs with the occasional backtrack for a scene, but nothing to write home about.

This story came down to the acting and the editors. The actors did an incredible job with their characters, and the editors did them all justice by putting together a beautiful film that told an incredible story.

SCORE: A+ 

FINAL THOUGHTS

This film is for both the teenager and the adult who is interested in a very unique twist to a very well-known love story. There are surprises that will take your breath away, moments that will make you cry, and the quirky narration given by R will really enrapture you, taking you along for the journey WITH him.
