Love is DeadBy manonfireuk (402 reviews) from Liverpool , 24 Feb 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]Having read the book I was really looking forward to seeing this. The book was a funny and sweet take on the zombie genre that transfers pretty well into this movie. I was worried they were going to make it all Twilight and from the trailers that are shown before the movie, that is certainly the audience they are aiming for. However, I think they've avoided that trap and made a pretty decent horror rom com. That are a few things that were left out from the book that I think could have provided more laughs but you can never fit everything from the book onto film I guess.

Good FilmBy a customer , 08 Dec 2013A good film, not a confusing film that you have to think about, you can just watch it and enjoy it.
Worth the watchBy OllieGBR (3 reviews) , 06 Dec 2013Really enjoyed this film. I was ready to switch it off as not a 'Twlight' fan at all, however the acting was great and they clearly had fun making this film. It was a good balance between a serious event and the cheeky side of life when all the chips are down. The balance was right, and it's a feel good film.
I Am The ResurrectionBy MurderonZidanefloor (6 reviews) , 01 Dec 2013After George A Romero's 60s/70's films I thought the zombie concept was done and dusted. Couldn't be better and pointless to attempt to do so. Fast forward to the early 2000s and Edgar Wright's Shaun of the Dead injected comedy and romance, for the RomComZom. I stood corrected the exception had proved the rule. Or so I thought, until Warm Bodies... If the Twilight franchise isn't for you, (it certainly isn't my thing, at all) and you consider films on the undead as teenage girl teritory, I urge you to think again. Warm Bodies is strong on laughs, gore, script, performance and soundtrack. Warm Bodies, introduces us to 'R' a lonely young man, looking for his place in the world, short on conversation, no challenging job or studies and no evidence of immediate family in his life either. All that and he's dead, too. Warm Bodies chooses to tell the zombie film from the zombie point of view, and is all the better for it. R meets and falls for Julie, who as luck would have it is alive (a nod to Shakespearean irony there's even a balcony scene, for them). The against the odds romance has to blossom, love has to conquer, a smooth and funny soundtrack lights up the entertainment, too. Rent and enjoy this gory, post apocalyptic, flesh scoffing, romantic comedy. Nicolas Hoult as the dead 'R' gives an endearing heart to the film, there are other performances to enjoy on what is a very good piece of Saturday night entertainment. Positively recommended.
starts off well..By Lynseylinz (15 reviews) , 29 Nov 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]i liked the beginning when he was a zombie, the inner monologue etc. IMO as the film moved on it became a stereotypica teen romantic comedy with litte imagination or originality.
