Maggie (2015)



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

A missed opportunity.

July 24, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A quietly melancholic study of a father-daughter relationship playing out under the shadow of her terminal disease.

Top Critic

The film ladles on the melancholy so thickly that there's no space for you to feel it for yourself.

July 23, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

One interminably boring and mawkish film, overlaid with YA-dystopian self-pity.

July 23, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

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.

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.
