“My Kind Of Zombie!!!!”
“... In Shambles WARM BODIES; A Zombie Movie By Way Of TWILIGHT. If That Sounds Interesting To You Then You Probably Don't Like Undead Films To Begin With...”
“The Movie Offers A Refreshing Twist On Not Only The Classic Love Story, But How We View Zombies And How They View Themselves.”
I kinda love this movie. "Warm Bodies" is a well-paced, nicely directed, post-apocalyptic love story with a terrific sense of humor and the, um, guts to be unabashedly romantic and unapologetically optimistic.
Richard Roeper - Chicago Sun-Times
The whole of "Warm Bodies," in both its comic and dramatic strains, lacks a certain ... what? Ooomph? Intensity? Invention?
Michael Phillips - Chicago Tribune
"Warm Bodies" offers a welcome twist on the living-dead canon, even if the decidedly femme-skewed results ignore pretty much every rule of the genre.
Peter Debruge - Variety
This character-driven genre meld could have used more edge and energy, and less obvious message-mongering, but it scores in terms of atmosphere, humor and charm.
Sheri Linden - Hollywood Reporter
It flouts convention in a number of ways in service of its genre-mash-up agenda while still contributing something original to the tradition of the zombie film.
Richard Larson - Slant Magazine
Hoult and Palmer carry "Warm Bodies" with a delightful conviction their characters' forbidden, "Romeo and Juliet"-like bond can be played like other movie romances, albeit with an obvious twist.
Jeff Shannon - Seattle Times
Surprisingly light and whimsical...a blissful contrast to the deadly earnestness of the inter-species romance of 'Twilight' and its ilk.
Frank Swietek - One Guy's Opinion
If we're going to be subjected to tons of "Twilight" wannabes, "Warm Bodies" is a pretty good one.
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul) - St. Paul Pioneer Press
Takes its premise painfully literally, resulting in a series of unlikely developments guaranteed to get hardcore zombie-movie fans frothing with rage -- if they don't doze off first.
Tasha Robinson - AV Club
The affectionate rapport between Palmer and Hoult ensures that we believe something like love can exist between a human and an, um, ex-human.
Matt Pais - RedEye
It's the Hello Kitty of zombie flicks.
Laura Clifford - Reeling Reviews
The likable if not remarkable Warm Bodies is the world's first romantic zombie comedy, told from the point of view of a dead guy.
Connie Ogle - Miami Herald
Lots of fun. Hoult and Palmer make an enaging, likable pair- even if one of them is "undead".
Chris Bumbray - JoBlo's Movie Emporium
A refreshing approach to both the zombie and teen-romance genres.
Josh Bell - Las Vegas Weekly
Yes, Teresa Palmer is hot enough to reanimate the living dead.
Roger Moore - Movie Nation
Giving a rom-com twist to the always reliable zombie genre, Warm Bodies turns a cute premise into a mildly affecting story of forbidden teen love.
John Hazelton - Screen International
It's hard to beat a brain-eating scene with John Waits' "Missing You" blaring in the background, the '80s ode to the forlorn has never sounded so grotesquely poignant.
