Warm Bodies — Love with a Z as in teenage zombie romance — 7*/10

Warm Bodies wants to be a new take on the zombie genre. I'll give them partial credit for the result.

There's several unique elements about zombie life that really make this flick worth seeing. Its biggest novelty achievement is using a zombie apocalypse as a backdrop for a romance, and casting a zombie as one of the lover. That's definitively well done.

However, this movie is fortunate to have a fresh spin, because there are many logical flaws in its scenario. More over, beyond the suspension of disbelief that comes with the concept of a zombie, you have to make an additional large concession for the healing process and how it comes about which is borderline cheesy.

If you don't mind mixing teenage romance and zombies, it's nice entertainment.
