Maggie (2015)



Critic Consensus: Maggie lurches a bit clumsily at times, but is partially redeemed by strong performances and an unexpectedly thoughtful tone.

Most of Maggie is so dark you can barely make out the zombies or the humans. It also moves more slowly than the ghouls.

I feel some guilt in giving a film that tries this hard a negative review. But I couldn't shake my sense of aggravation at how it all plays out, especially in Schwarzenegger's case.

May 8, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Ultimately, neither the brain-eating genre or the heart-breaking one is enhanced by this mash-up. Like Celine Dion's cover of AC/DC's You Shook Me All Night Long, file it under the category of "interesting-but-why?"

May 8, 2015 | Full Review…

The problem, aside from not much going on, is that Schwarzenegger remains a severely limited actor, so there's not that much character to study. Potentially interesting concept; wrong star.

May 8, 2015 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Its creepy atmosphere aside, "Maggie" is a slog of the living dead.

May 8, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

It's a sad story, or would be if the zombie apocalypse backdrop - and the inky splotches creeping across Maggie's body - didn't wreak such havoc with the movie's unsmiling sincerity.

Audience Reviews for Maggie

Slow but pretty interesting take on the zombie genre. As his daughter gets infected and slowly turns into a threat, a father has to start coping with it, while the girl tries to live a normal teenager for as long as she can. Nicely filmed and well acted, only the solution falls a bit short. There are a few pretty touching scenes, though. Definitely Arnie's most unusual film.

It's a whole film about saying goodbye, particularly to one's child, herein taken slowly, bit by bit, by ... but it doesn't matter much at all. Saying goodbye, nobody wants it. Ah-nold throws down some real acting and surprises. Breslin is capable. One for the ages, despite its slow pace.

The premise is a tad too familiar and nothing that hasn't been shown before in The Walking Dead or George Romero's movies, but Hobson makes up for it by sustaining an oppressive, relentless atmosphere of melancholy despite the film lacking in plot (and character) development.
