Friday Flicks: Warm Bodies

A weekly review of a book to film adaptation. 

Summary: If true love is meant to be, what does it matter if one is human and the other a zombie? Warm Bodies is a pretty delightful, tongue-in-cheek romantic comedy loosely based on Romeo and Juliet. But the Capulets and Montagues have much more in common than do R, the hipster zombie boy character (played by Nicholas Hoult), and Julie (Teresa Palmer), a girl human. Warm Bodies takes place after the zombie apocalypse (of course), and on the surface it appears to be Twilight for zombie fans. Happily, writer-director Jonathan Levine has taken the concept a step further than the novel by Isaac Marion. As a result, Warm Bodies is just self-aware enough to keep the whole idea from being too precious. The viewer knows that the two young leads were born to be together--if they can work with their hearts and their brains. Complicating matters is the fact that Julie's dad (John Malkovich, having a wickedly good time) is the boss of all the humans fighting the zombies. Let's just say Julie definitely has her work cut out for her. Warm Bodies will thrill younger viewers who adore Twilight, but fans of great romantic comedies with a light touch will like it just as much. --A.T. Hurley

Review: Although I've never read the book, I'm very happy I watched the movie. It was crazy, defiantly something I didn't expect. The zombie was the main character! Loved it. The movie had great meaning, amazing characters. I would suggest you to see it. I even got my boyfriend to watch it and he's one of those guys who need to have lots of guns in the movie. Even he liked it a bit.  Of course there were a few slow bits but hey zombies are slow!
So 4.5 stars out of 5 stars.
