About Warm Bodies


'R' is a zombie. He has no name, no memories and no pulse, but he has dreams. He is a little different from his fellow Dead.

Amongst the ruins of an abandoned city, R meets a girl. Her name is Julie and she is the opposite of everything he knows - warm and bright and very much alive, she is a blast of colour in a dreary grey landscape. For reasons he can't understand, R chooses to save Julie instead of eating her, and a tense yet strangely tender relationship begins.

This has never happened before. It breaks the rules and defies logic, but R is no longer content with life in the grave. He wants to breathe again, he wants to live, and Julie wants to help him. But their grim, rotting world won't be changed without a fight.

My review

Wow, what a great movie! Really, really great! Actually I totally fell in love with it! It was so cute, a zombie falling in love with a human. And gosh isn't he cute? Can I say that? Well I did didn't I?

I think they captured this really well, now I really want to read the book! Yeah bad thing right? I mostly read the books before the movie, well if I know there was a book. Did you ever watch a movie and afterwards heard there was a book? Yeah that really makes me want to run to the book store and go get it!

Anyways, I was amazed that I liked the whole Zombie approach, as you might know I am not a big fan of zombies. My first zombie experience was when reading Mortality read my review here:  Click here. I got to say after zombie experience 2 I really think I am going to get a three and four as well. Well of course I am going to read the second book in the Mortality series, and I am getting Warm Bodies now too!

All in all this was a great zombie love story, this is a movie that is also great for people who are not into zombies so much (like me). I am going to rate it the same way as I do books. And because I really loved it this is going to be 5 skaters!!

Buy the book or movie here:

  1. You know, I didn't enjoy this movie. I like my zombies scary, not romantic. Great review!
