Rotten: "Warm Bodies" sounds a lot better in theory than it turns out to be in practice.
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Friday, February 1, 2013
Fresh: In doing a little genre bending of romantic schmaltz and horror cheese - some fundamental zombie mythology is turned on its head - the film breathes amusing new life into both.

Fresh: Levine] finds strategies in Warm Bodies to make what has long been considered a deathless tale undead in a new way.

An interesting concept on What normally is a recycled plot! Likeable characters, original and amusing but still even with that originality is an average movie.

After the zombie apocalypse, one of the living dead finds that he has memories of being alive, and even what it means to love. This zombie twist on Romeo and Juliet starts out with a great premise, but the longer it goes on, the more it sacrifices satire and insight for unlikely romance aimed at the "Twillight" crowd. Not bad but a bit of a missed opportunity.

Warm Bodies is pleasant but not perceptive. William Shakespeare did this way back in the 16th century when he wrote Romeo & Juliet (another influence). Even The Bard of Avon was borrowing from earlier traditions. "Love Conquers All" is the timeworn concept. Simply adding zombies to the mix is just a lazy technique to make this generic material seem fresh. "We've kind of done vampires to death so let's concentrate on zombies now," is the impression I get from the way the story pitch went. Additionally the illogical plot contrivances further irritate matters. If someone killed my sweetheart, I'd run in the other direction, not date them. Warm Bodies is based on the debut novel of author Isaac Marion. Not having read the source text, I'm not sure how much of the script contains the root of Marion's ideas. Unfortunately the screenplay adaptation feels more like the result of a focus group than the outcome of genuine inspiration. fastfilmreviews.wordpress.com
