Warm Bodies surprised us, not that it managed to coalesce enough to really push up in the ratings, but we went in with pretty low expectations. The most important thing about the film was probably the degree to which it let us down by having the tools and not capitalizing on them – something that we’ll repeat when we get to Nicholas Hoult‘s next movie.
Still, we had fun, mostly, and it was entertaining enough. Most of our complaints were along the lines of how it could have, and should have, been better, as opposed to just that it went in a garbage direction, so it’s got that going for it.
Something about it makes me hope for interesting things on the home release, which is more than you can say for a lot of three star films. What that comes down to, I suppose, is that we recommend it, just with a lot of caveats. If you think you’ll have fun with it, you probably will, but you may find yourself in the same boat as us, thinking that it could have been a lot stronger.
