Review: Warm Bodies

Review 2013 by RD Clark


Warm Bodies

Written by: Jonathan Levine (screenplay) from the novel byIsaac Marion

Directed by: Jonathan Levine

Starring: Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Rob Corddry, John Malkovich, Analeigh Tipton, Dave Franco

Rated PG-13
Running time: 98 mins

A zombie with a running inner dialog rescues a girl from his gang, after eating her boyfriend’s brains. He’s conflicted, you see. He cannot remember his name, except that it began with an R. Dodging the “bonies” (humans who have lost all trace of their humanity), he takes her to his home to be with her. Something about the girl awakens something in him which starts a change in his biology.

Be prepared for some very fun nonsense. All of the actors are great here, especially Analeigh Tipton as the understanding best friend to our heroine. Throw in a great sound track and loads and loads of zombies shuffling about and you have a pretty good matinee movie.

Not a great movie, but certainly a novel one. You could take the kids, as it’s not really scary or bloody violent. No post credit scenes to worry about, so get while the getting’s good.

Flytrap rating: 7.5/10
