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 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.

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.

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

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.

The Zombie genre has been done to death, excuse the pun, so trying to make an original on the subject his difficult. Here, director Jonathan Levine has achieved… More

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