Maggie: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

Before Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to his Terminator franchise this July, we will see him first not battling with robots or terrorist but dealing with a zombie outbreak. If you're a big fan of zombie movies and love to see an action-packed type like World War Z, well, this film might get you bored and disappointed. It isn't the typical zombie flick you might expect and the idea is fresh, but sadly they didn't explore more in their interesting concept. 

In a world suffering from a deadly outbreak, Wade (Arnold Schwarzenegger) tries everything to keep his family safe. However, when his daughter Maggie (Abigail Breslin) got bitten and infected. He needs to take extra measures to keep her away from being taken to the quarantine.It is not an easy task as he sees her daughter everyday getting worse with the infection slowly infesting her body.

The film has a lot of smart ideas, but it fails to give us something exciting, especially in this kind of genre. There are a lot of scenes that are poorly lit, and the pace is slow moving. We are also looking forward to see more zombies in the film, but we've only got a handful of them despite a decent undead prosthetic. What the film major strength is the stars who are up with the challenging roles. It's quite awkward to see Arnold Schwarzenegger in this kind of role, but he manages to pull it off while Abigail Breslin is the prefect choice for Maggie as she sells her character's desperation and transformation. 

Overall, Maggie has a lot more of room to improve. The father and daughter dealing with the darkest days of their lives is a heartwarming story flourished by its talented stars. They just came up short in giving some excitement and depth into its already interesting story. 

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 5 out of 10 stars
