Thoughtful zombie meditation on sickness and love (by louisemensch)
Saw the premiere of this and haven't been able to stop thinking about it. Schwarzenegger is tender and subtle, I saw one review describe his performance as 'gentle', which I bet is not an adjective often used of the man. Abigail Breslin is a sad, scary, horrific lead. Joely Richardson plays a difficult role in a stepmother; a terrified third wheel doing her best with two small kids of her own. Movie is 90 minutes long and destined to be a cult classic. I think my only criticism is that the director's palette looked like an instagram 'old photos' filter; there was <more>
enough great acting in this film, and sad suspense leavened with humor, without having to wash it in beige.Overall loved the film, and the studio will regret not putting it in wide release.
An instant classic. One of the years best movies.... (by FlashCallahan)
After a long search for his daughter, Maggie, Wade finds her in the quarantine wing of a hospital. Maggie has been infected by an outbreak that transforms the victim into a zombie. Wade's friend Dr. Kaplan assesses, and then discharges Maggie to spend her last days with Wade and her family. Her step-mother Caroline asks Wade to take their other children to her sister's house to keep them safe, while Maggie is slowly transforming.Wade stays by her side, giving her constant reassurance, but Dr. Vern warns him that the moment that he will have to take an ultimate decision is drawing <more>
closer and closer.......Who would have thought that, what fundamentally is, a Zombie movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, could turn out to not just one of the years best movies, but also, a serious contender of being in my all time top 25.And thank heavens it was made at this time in his career, and not twenty years ago, as you could well imagine. If it were made in 1995, no doubt it would have been one of the biggest releases of the years, and would have catered for the popcorn friendly, pyrotechnic loving audiences who prefer Michael Bay and one liners to subtlety.This has to be Arnold's finest performance in a movie where he hasn't played a cyborg, and without being disrespectful to the actor, it's because he has very little to say I the film, and relies on facial expressions, and the bond he has with his on screen daughter.His Wade is a world weary person in this, and he looks like he has the world on his shoulders. After all,his daughter is perishing in front of him, causing his nuclear family to fall apart, and all the while, him knowing that he will have to do the most unthinkable act that anyone could possibly do, kill your own offspring.The punishment in his face is almost unbearable at times, and when he is reassuring his daughter, she is ultimately giving him reassurance back, so in turn, their bond is becoming stronger and stronger, the weaker Maggie becomes due to her 'illness'.Having a daughter of a certain age may have made me baits to the film, but there were times when I had great empathy for Wade, especially when Dr. Kaplan gives him advice on certain methods. You ask yourself, would you let her turn, so your not killing your 'daughter', but let her go through a great ordeal of pain and suffering to get there? Or would you do the deed before, knowing full well that your daughter is fully copus mentus when it happens?Schwarzenegger and Breslin have a wonderful chemistry together, you could almost believe that they are father and daughter, every ounce of Maggies pain is shared in Wades eyes, and due to the slow burning nature of the film, it's all the more agonising for the viewer.The first chance you get to see this film, don't hesitate, it's nothing like you would think it would be, and I never thought I'd say this...........................but Schwarzenegger is a revelation.Destined for greatness.
I've been waiting to watch this film for ages and here is my review . This film is one of the best films I've watched for a long time i thought Arnie was great to make a film with zombies it just shows how hes great no matter what type of role he plays. i really liked the way that there wasn't loads of zombies and the whole film was about him protecting his daughter and staying with her to the end which was really sad but great. Well done Arnie fantastic film. i am really looking forward to watching more of your films i think you have done a great job with them all . fantastic job <more>
Heartbreaking But Amazingly Well Done (by Necroambulant)
I've heard complaints from a number of people, expressing disdain for Maggie; people keep insisting that it was slow or boring. I don't know what any of them are even talking about. My only suspicion is that they are burdened with a poor attention span. Sure, it is slower than the typical Arnold Schwarzenegger action flick and I can't deny that I have enjoyed quite a few of those ...and it isn't one of the generic shoot-em-up zombie movies which I happen to enjoy quite a bit . What people seem to be forgetting is that it wasn't written to be either of those things, and <more>
if that was what they expected, the fault is their own...as the movie never makes an attempt to trick the viewer into thinking it might be that sort of movie. The minimalistic score is somber and about as perfect as it could be, the washed out cinematography lends itself well to the desolation of both the world of the movie and the depressing narrative itself, and the acting in all cases is superb...seriously, this is one of Schwarzenegger's most impressive performances, displaying greater depth and humanity than his typical roles allow. Think of this movie as being a beautifully executed amalgam of The Road and The Walking Dead...leaning a little more toward The Road. It is a touching, and intensely sad story of a man desperate to milk the last little bit of fatherhood out of the limited time he has with his dying daughter, and a girl who just wants to live a couple of weeks longer as if things were still OK. There are a couple of tense scenes arising from the nightmarish place the world has become that end up being fairly understated, but they are not the focus of the story, nor are the zombies that people are becoming...those are simply elements of the setting in which the story takes place. In that sense, this movie ends up sharing one of my favorite things about The Walking Dead, that it is ultimately a character study, a detailed focus on human beings and how they are forced to adapt to a situation that no one could ever truly prepare for. Unlike the Walking Dead, Maggie felt like it had a much more even flow to it, it wasn't as unevenly paced, in part because it had no pretense of being action-oriented at any point. It's sincerely quite depressing, but well worth the time spent watching it. I'm sure that plenty of people will disagree with my assessment of this movie, but I really found no fault in it.
More of a drama, and well worth watching (by misterphilipj)
I believe this film is miscategorized as a thriller or horror. To my surprise a zombie movie pulled off drama better than any other I've seen. This film had a human element to it, where I felt like I was living the experience with everyone. It is a story of the human experience of life, love, and loss. They do a profound job telling this story, taking their time with cinematic shots, dramatic and emotional music, and effective dialogue. A few parts fell flat but overall grab the popcorn, but don't expect an edge of your seat thriller. In the past Arnold has been casted in movies where <more>
he's more of a body than a person, here he actually has dialogue, which was heartfelt and well delivered.
Can a zombie movie be an Oscar contender? A review of "Maggie." (by ericrnolan)
I'm not even sure how to describe what I just saw. It was a zombie movie. It starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as a gentle, mild mannered father. There is virtually no action. It's actually slow. We see precisely three zombies, by my count, and one of those appears only in quick flashbacks. Schwarzenegger doesn't even raise his voice, much less raise hell. Where I come from, that's what we call "ALL OF THE INGREDIENTS FOR A BAD MOVIE." But "Maggie" 2015 was simply FANTASTIC. It's expertly made, and is like no other "zombie movie" I've ever <more>
seen before. I'd give it a 9 out of 10. It actually isn't really a horror movie, but rather a very, very dark family drama, cleverly housed inside a horror sub-genre. The movie is about terminal illness, and not monsters. Schwarzenegger hands in a nuanced, understated but still quite touching performance. He was perfect I never knew he had it in him. I KNOW he is the actor here; I recognize his face and read his name in the credits. But I still have a hard time believing that this is the same man that starred in "The Running Man" 1987 . Okay, cheap shot. Abigail Breslin was also perfect as the afflicted daughter. And Bryce Romero was terrific in a supporting role. They're great young actors; Hollywood seems to be producing more of them these days. Wait is that kid's last name actually "Romero?" That's SO meta. The actor portraying Maggie's primary care physician is it Wayne Pere? gave a great performance he's right on par with Schwarzenegger here. And John Scott's script is superb. I love the way he crafts characters against stereotype we have doctors who are neither omnipotent saints nor detached jerks. The popular kids at school sweetly welcome their infected friends along on a night out, instead of ostracizing them. An overzealous Jerk Cop character wants to round up all the infected without prejudice and quarantine them right away. But, by the end of the movie, moral ambiguity suggests that he's probably right. This movie falls just short of perfection with a few forgivable flaws: 1 Its plot setup is ridiculous. The government institutes quarantines for infected people, yet politely allows people to return home for a few weeks until they are definitely dangerous? And they then return voluntarily to quarantine after a phone call, even after it becomes well known that the quarantines are hellish places to die? I'm pretty sure no quarantine in history has ever worked like that. Consider the recent Ebola outbreak, and how the quite healthy and asymptomatic Doctors Without Borders' volunteers were sequestered immediately. Maggie's release to her home was quite obviously an overly convenient plot device. 2 Whoever performed the radio voice-over in the opening scene really dropped the ball. They needed a reshoot or a better actor. 3 I honestly think a lot of horror fans will be disappointed with this. Was it really necessary to include almost no action? I personally feel that "28 Days Later" 2002 was a moving, touching, richly thematic film. It's a favorite. Yet it still served up some racing, screaming hordes of "infected" that were goddam terrifying. If "Maggie" had just one action set piece, it would have broader appeal. And it would break up the movie's slow pace. A movie like this doesn't have to be ABOUT exploding zombie heads, but it wouldn't hurt to include just one, just for fun. 4 By the end, it is possible that the film pushes the drama just a little too far, depending on your taste. By the time the "Mama's garden" scene occurs toward the end, you might begin to wish the movie just reaches its conclusion. Still, this is a great flick. See it. Tonight.
Not the type of movie that a lot of Schwarzenegger fans are expecting! (by Hellmant)
'MAGGIE': Four Stars Out of Five An indie zombie flick, made on a budget of just $4 million, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin! It was directed by first time feature filmmaker Henry Hobson and written by first time feature film writer John Scott 3. The movie is actually more of a dramatic character study, than an action or horror film, dealing with the relationship between a teenage girl, in the Midwest, and her loving father. The catch is that the girl is infected with a deadly zombie virus. It's definitely not the type of movie that a lot of Schwarzenegger fans <more>
are expecting, but I really liked it. The story is set in a small Midwest town, where a virus, called the necroambulist virus, has broken out. It slowly turns it's victims into zombies and the government deals with the problem by throwing 'the infected' into isolation wards. Maggie Breslin is a young teenage girl, who was recently infected by the disease. Her father, Wade Schwarzenegger , must do his best to care for her, in her last days, and also come to terms with what must be done, when she finally changes.I wasn't sure what exactly to expect, going into this movie. The premise, and idea of Arnold Schwarzenegger starring in a low-budget zombie drama flick, were both very intriguing to me. I am a little disappointed it doesn't have more action, and gruesome thrills, but it is a very well made drama film. Arnold gives, arguably, his best performance to date, and Breslin is pretty impressive as well. I wish there would have been a little more to the story, than just another drama flick about a terminally ill teen, and her relationship with her friends and family. It's almost like a zombie version of 'MY SISTER'S KEEPER' or 'THE FAULT IN OUR STARS', except with a little Schwarzenegger thrown in as well. I think he's making a lot of wise career choices lately, and he's starting to resemble Clint Eastwood, more and more, with each movie. This isn't a great film but it is a nice entry in Arnold's impressively expanding resume.Watch our movie review show 'MOVIE TALK' at: https://youtu.be/GZMz2QipSqQ
Maggie is the film that finally shows an emotional side to zombie films. This movie is not about killing all the infected people in sight. I think that Maggie has a least four excellent performances. The best is definitely Abigail Breslin. It is Arnold Schwarzenegger who is going to bring people to the theatre to see this movie but it really is Breslin's film, she is really the star. Schwarzenegger however is not his normal self. The man can act, and I'm sure that this film will never receive the credit it should because Schwarzenegger is in it and people are too quick to judge it by <more>
its cover. Maggie is slow but the performances managed to keep me interested. The film is also dark which perfectly captures its tone. I think that people need to go into this movie with an unbiased mind and it could really be enjoyed.
This is not an Arnie action flick... (by sforrester-3)
I think one of the reasons this film has a fairly low score is that a lot of people are seeing Arnie/zombies and thinking they are going to be watching a big budget blockbuster with Arnie running around blowing heads off. This, for me, was much better. It was slow moving, thoughtful and Arnie's performance as Wade in it was a revelation to someone who has never been a huge fan. Breslin's depiction of a troubled teen, Maggie, facing her own mortality and horrific end was subtle but effective. A lot of people have been questioning why make it a zombie film and not just any infection but <more>
without Maggie's disease making her ultimately dangerous, Wade would not have had to wrestle with his conscience in what he had to do, making the whole film pointless. If you preferred The Road to The Walking Dead then this is the film for you. If you're an Arnie fan expecting the usual fodder then I would suggest skipping this and digging out your Terminator box-set.
