WARM BODIES: A zombie movie for girls....and this guy.
There is a reason why WARM BODIES was previewed in front of BREAKING DAWN part 2 and that is because there really isn't a whole lot that happens in this movie. That is not to say that WARM BODIES is a bad film. Quite the contrary. It is just that this is a romantic comedy, so a good portion of this film is solely focused on the relationship building between R and Julie. That is the whole reason to watch a film like this in the first place. And while Nicholas is a very likable zombie he is still a zombie. The whole plot about R having a hard time trying to get this girl to like him because he is dead kind of gets old. The film can't help but drag a bit. WARM BODIES doesn't give you the high energy the trailer promises. Some of that I believe is due to not using the music more effectively in the film and the writing overall could have been smarter. Still WARM BODIES is a good film. It just isn't a great film. Click here to continue...
