Thus, "Warm Bodies", a fresh, fast-paced, sensational and truly original delight that is sure to knock your socks off from beginning to end. Start with the premise: After an plague has caused people to turn into zombies, the real humans including General Grigio John Malkovich separate themselves from the brain-eating zombies by building up a wall in order to keep them away.
Along the way, we get to meet one of those zombies. Meet R the charming British heartthrob Nicholas Hoult.

He doesn't quite like this life, knowing that he has to eat brains in order to survive and to live off the memories of the humans he's killed. He's looking for someone to connect to, which is really explained through his facial expressions and inner monologues. Then it's love at first bite, when he's finally connecting to Julie Australian beauty Teresa Palmer , daughter of General Grigio.
When he sees her after she shoots most of his friends, he decides to protect her and to "keep her safe". Yes, this zombie is in love. Protecting her in his abandoned airplane filled with vinyl records, a record player, and other resourceful things, R finally gets to realize that something was missing in him all along, leaving his heart beating to realize that he loves her.

That's when R, his friend M a wonderful Rob Corddry and the other zombies are starting to change. That's all good, until the CG skeletal creatures known as Bonies will do anything to prevent that from happening, which leads off into the film's fantastical climax. Take that, Jacob Black. First Class" and the upcoming "Jack the Giant Slayer".
As R, he literally dives deep into the emotions as well as having terrific comic timing through his expressions and his inner monologues by using a spot-on American accent. He also develops great chemistry with Teresa Palmer, known as the butt-kicking alien Six in "I Am Number Four", who, as Julie, has a tough and fearless personality as well as a emotional side to her. The supporting cast is also incredible, including Analeigh Tipton, who is hilarious as Julie's friend, Nora, Dave Franco James's little brother from last year's "21 Jump Street" who gets a brief amount of screen time, but really sticks it out as Julie's ex-boyfriend, Perry, who in order not to spoil this gets called for a dinner date that includes brains on the menu and the great John Malkovich excels as a man who believes that the zombies are nothing more than just flesh-eating corpses looking forward to get shot in the head, but doesn't believe that his only daughter is in love with one.
I know what you're thinking, this is just another zombie movie.
But "Warm Bodies" is certainly different than that. It revives the zombie genre by bringing something original to the screen. And maybe like R's, your heart will warm up too. This is the best surprise so far this year. Those are hardly seen, but there are people who shoot zombies in the head with guns. That works in order to keep it very organic. Start your free trial.

Once my make-up was finished, I moved over to have my hair done. Now you will see how uncool it was. Fake mud and fake grime were massaged into my scalp and then I was coated with a nice sprinkling of dust. In the department, I stood alongside two other extras, and we each had an artist who would add more dark paint and mud coloring to our clothing.
With the process complete, I determined that my character was bitten and then rolled down a muddy slope before landing in a construction zone. Looking around at the other extras, I believe this had been a common occurrence during the apocalypse.
Instead, we went to some monitors to watch some takes of Julie and R walking down a hallway. Then we moved to what was formerly the box office for the stadium so we could do interviews. First, we interviewed producer Bruna Papandrea. Click here for the full interview. After Papandera left, we waited a little while, and then Corddry entered the room.

After we finished interviewing Palmer, we were asked if we wanted to be put near the back or front of the crowd. If we were put in the front, we would possibly have to stay late to maintain continuity. We volunteered to be put near the front, much to the chagrin of some of our fellow extras.
Personally, I was hoping the camera would notice me just so I could point out the half-second of my zombified face to friends and family when the Blu-ray came out. You have a better chance of catching fellow movie website writers Devin Faraci, Evan Dickson, and Max Evry in the shot. They can slightly communicate, they have the potential to heal R and M both have scars , and most importantly, they can possibly become human again.
The bonies, on the other hand, are too far gone, and have become ugly, primal monsters. While M and his gang of zombies square off against the Boneys, Julie and R run, but find themselves trapped. Taking the only escape route, R jumps with Julie into a pool far below, shielding her from the impact. After Julie pulls R from the bottom of the pool, they kiss. Colonel Grigio arrives and shoots R in the shoulder without warning. Julie attempts to persuade him that R has changed, when she notices that he is bleeding from his wound — revealing that he has completely revived and is human once more.
The humans and zombies combine forces and kill most of the Boneys while the rest perish from starvation and the zombies slowly come back to life and assimilate into human society. Later, a fully human R and Julie watch the wall surrounding the city be demolished, signifying the end of the apocalypse. Writer and director Jonathan Levine said even though this is a love story that involves zombies, he hoped people would not try to put the film into one category and zombie enthusiasts would be open to a new twist on the genre.
It may be divisive, but I think there's a lot there for zombie fans if they're open-minded to a new take on it, and I hope they can. That human connection saves us. People who have had those lights dimmed inside them, when they fall in love they get brighter.

Let's just say his hand—eye coordination is not what it needs to be. It's one of those things where you think about it a lot but you just have to try it out and see what works. Then Jonathan [Levine] would say either 'too much or little less', we didn't want to go over the top with it. Because you had to feel sorry for Edward I was thinking of Edward when I did R. The site's consensus reads: Richard Larson of Slant Magazine said "The ubiquity of Shakespeare's original template allows Warm Bodies some leeway in terms of believability, where otherwise it sometimes strains against its own logic.
But the film's persistent charm encourages us to look past a few festering surface wounds and see the human heart beating inside, which is really what love is all about. It's a shame those Bonies are mediocre special-effects creations that run with a herky-jerky style But those are minor drawbacks There are so many clever lines and bits of physical comedy worth revisiting that the movie seems like a likely cult classic.
Stella Papamichael at Digital Spy gave it 3 out of 5 stars and called it "a truly deadpan romantic comedy" and "a witty reinvention of the genre like Shaun of the Dead before it, drawing parallels between the apathy of youth and the zombie masses," adding, "Hoult gets to deliver a wickedly dry voiceover. Nobody kisses anyone else until it becomes clear that both parties have pulses, and everyone gets to keep all their limbs.

It's less funny and self-aware than Shaun of the Dead , less swooningly romantic than Twilight and less scary than pretty much anything else out there with zombies in it. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Warm Bodies Theatrical release poster.
