Maggie (2015)



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

Maggie could have been a rare treat... Instead, what we get is a genuinely new take that winds up feeling, somehow, like the same old stuff we've seen a million times before.

It's a serious, heartfelt, dramatic turn, and he totally nails it. I'm as surprised as you are.

Breslin is affecting as the ordinary young woman beneath the festering flesh, while Arnie shows a delicacy you'd never have suspected, at least not from his current TV ads with meerkats.

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

It feels a little like 'a very special episode of The Walking Dead' and might be a tad low-key for its field, but Schwarzenegger and Breslin are good and the payoff is affecting.

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.

Super Reviewer

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.
