This movie kept me smiling, laughing, and "aww-ing" at every moment. It kept me on my toes wanting to know where it was going to go next. The acting was absolutely brilliant. I know supernatural love stories tend to get a lot of groans of disapproval since the Twilight series, but Warm Bodies nails it out of the park. There were no awkward moments of acting. Not for one second was I not thoroughly immersed in the world of R and Julie. I was completely sold on the emotions being portrayed. Nicholas Hoult nails zombie-ism. They all do, but he was perfect for R. I read the book also, and I personally think I may have liked the movie even more. There were only a couple aspects of the book I wish they had put in, but overall it was perfect. I am also a fan of your typical scary zombies, but I loved this aspect of it too. It gives it a fun new twist that I thoroughly enjoyed. Hardcore zombie fans need to go into this with an open mind to appreciate it. Overall, love love loved this movie!

It is a fantastic movie the way they showed the transitions of the zombies and the love story. Its played out very well making you feel for the characters along with the comedy is mixed in well to either to lighten the mood or just for a laugh!

I took my (reluctant) 73 year old mother with me to see this film and get her out of the house. She was laughing along with everyone else, and of course it was a light attendance-since it was the matinee at our local mall. I knew Nicholas Hoult from About a Boy, of course, but have also seen him in A Single Man and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. The action movies he is credited with, I have not seen.
I have been impressed with him, and let me say-this young British actor is an up and comer. Already, everything he touches turns to gold. He was delightful, sympathetic and funny in this touching zombie movie that is anything but traditional. There is a genuine story line, superb acting by all, but again he is one to watch.
I recommend it most highly and if I can convince my middle aged boyfriend to see it I will be happy to go again!

The movie is very good! I loved it! It was really good acted and the actors were really good in playing their characters! If you havn't seen it, go watch it! I would always go see it again, just a wonderful movie, mix of action, romance and zombies, for every age I think! But the PG-13 is rated right! For teenager above 13 until 60 it´s a great movie!

The movie is a fun twist to the Zombie genre, and a great "couples movie". If your girlfriend doesn't like "real" zombie splatter movies this would be a great alternative :)
So, my conclusion is that its, um, "cute", but nothing spectacular hence the so-so rating. Go if you're looking have a good night with your girlfriend. If you're looking for a masterpiece this isnt it.
