Warm Bodies starts promising, offering an interesting world with some properly defined rules. But it all goes downhill once the romance hits, turning something slightly charming into a world that is increasingly grating. Zombie romance sounds like a tricky genre, and while it does work for quite a bit of the film’s duration, it ultimately falls flat into the conventions it wisely sidesteps for the film’s first half. This is a big step down from Levine’s great 2011 effort, 50/50, for this film doesn’t hold the former’s sweetness and honesty.
