Warm Bodies is a witty, fresh twist on the zombie comedy, and it will likely be considered a cult classic up there with Zombieland, Fido and Shaun of the Dead (though nowhere near as gory or scary). I loved every minute – even the schmalzy, gooey center aimed squarely at the PG-13 crowd. It was refreshing to see the story told from the perspective of a zombie, and Nicholas Hoult’s dead-on performance nails the nuance of uttering barely decipherable grunts and groans, while his expressive eyes show a rich inner life. The scene on the balcony where it becomes clear that this is an homage to Romeo & Juliet was also very clever. (Is this the first ever zom-rom-com?) One reviewer called it the “sweetest zombie movie ever made” and I whole-heartedly agree. [A]
