Warm Bodies ★★★½

A surprisingly original take in the Romeo/Juliette story of star crossed lovers (seriously, the female character's name is Julie and the male's is 'R'), and also a refreshingly new portrayal of a zombie apocalypse.

But there's not a whole lot under the surface, and this wasteland America (Houston?) the film presents isn't well flushed-out and its scale isn't firmly established.

A testament to how great music and some original interpretations can deliver despite many other shortcoming.
