Consensus: Warm Bodies offers a sweet, well-acted spin on a genre that all too often lives down to its brain-dead protagonists.

It's not gruesome enough to please genre fans, but not nearly funny enough to be a comedy either. It tries to be a mixture of both and fails.

It's all very silly and sweet in that indie-nostalgic way that Levine ('The Wackness' and '50/50') has made his own.

To truly appreciate this zombie Romeo & Juliet you either go all the way with it or not at all.

A muddled teenpic.

Warm Bodies doesn't even have the conviction to follow through on its lame ideas, let alone its good ones. It's a mostly terrible film that misses the opportunity to be a merely mediocre one.

It's a toss-up which genre more needs the adrenaline boost Warm Bodies provides: the zombie movie or the romantic comedy.

This is a love story, done with charm, humor, and tenderness.

This is a bloody fresh twist on the zombie genre.

Warm Bodies proves a movie can have a lot of heart even when the heart of one of the characters isn't beating.

Cute, but ultimately unbelievable and inconsistent. No notable acting. Just mindless, zombie entertainment without the horror element.

Really loved this!! So sweet, funny, and heartwarming (literally). I was not sure what to expect since it IS a zombie movie, but the plot is tight; there were… More

Sweet and cute, a little slow, and it's still impossible to believe Malkovich as anything other than evil. Sorry dude.

Quite a high rating for a teen movie, I must say.. But IMHO, 'Warm Bodies' is no more than just another absurd fantasy love story even though that… More

I really can't say I enjoyed this film, however, I didn't loathe it either. Since I'm use to the zombie mythology created by George A.Romero, I… More
