Warm Bodies (2013)

Warm Bodies (2013)
Directed by: Jonathan Levine
Country: USA

Review: “Warm Bodies” is an alternative to traditional zombie flicks. It consists in a post-apocalyptic romantic tale, having Julie (Teresa Palmer) and R (Nicholas Hoult) as main characters. The former belongs to the world of the living and is the daughter of the human group’s leader, while the latter is a zombie who lives in an airport inside an airplane and didn’t lose hope on coming back to life. The direction was satisfying, maintaining the focus on the course of the story without getting lost on superfluous details, which doesn’t necessarily mean that the movie has lost intensity. The characterization was also positive while the plot was the weakest aspect, with the cold dead seeing the blood running again throughout their veins. Regardless this fact, the idea behind “Warm Bodies” has to be seen purely as amusing or comical, otherwise it would look ridicule. Although this film had the potential to be better, Jonathan Levine maintains his work interesting after the successful “50/50” (2011).
