At the movies: Warm Bodies
In a world filled with zombies and “bonies,” the last remaining uninfected people live in a fortress they’ve constructed around a city. On occasion, they have to send out a band of people to collect supplies. It’s a dangerous mission because both zombies and bonies long to eat anything with a heartbeat.
While Nora is on such a mission, her boyfriend is killed by R, a zombie who becomes entranced with her and takes her back to his lair, an abandoned jet at the airport. It turns out that R has some thoughts and emotions but he can’t communicate them since he’s trapped in his zombie body. He protects Nora and they start to form a relationship that could change the world
I thought Warm Bodies would be a gory zombie movie and, while there is a little gore and violence in it, it’s really a campy romantic comedy. You definitely have to suspend disbelief to enjoy this movie because there are things that just don’t add up. Still, if you go in with the right attitude, the movie does have some fun parts. The acting is fine, but nothing special.
Most people will want to wait to rent this one but tweens and young teens (especially females) will probably love this one in the theater. This movie is rated PG-13.
