Reviews: Maggie (2015)

maggieReviews for this film from our members:

  • [New – 1/22/16] | José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Rareza poco rara que se presenta como un drama sociofamiliar con enfermedad infecciosa en primer plano. Arnold Schwarzenegger se entrega como pocas veces le hemos visto en una propuesta medidamente interesante. Nos vale.
  • Robert Cashill @ Popdose
    • Excerpt: Plus a few words on ULTRON.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: With its imagined horrors, “Maggie” celebrates life.
  • M Enois Duarte @ High-Def Digest.com
    • Excerpt: As a parent faced with the difficult dilemma of seeing his daughter suffer as she slowly slips into death or possibly giving her respite from the pain of dying, this should go down as Schwarzenegger’s most powerful career performance.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: [I]t feels as if Hobson and Scott are hoping that the unexpectedness of the whole affair will be enough.
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: ‘Maggie’ is one of the most realistic and relatable film representations of a zombie/viral outbreak told through the relationship of a father and his infected daughter.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Admirable but not very engaging SF drama that either fails to recognize the potential of its central conceit, or else is too afraid to confront it head-on.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Maggie is a creative attempt to fashion a low budget, indie film about emotional and physical collapse with just a splash of zombie gore which never takes off; it stumbles and plods along as a stereotypical zombie would.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: So much of it is so drearily grim, but as along as the viewer adjusts his or her expectations accordingly, “Maggie” still works surprisingly well for what it wants to do within its small scope.
  • Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
  • Daniel Lackey @ The Nightmare Gallery
    • Excerpt: Imagine a zombie movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Whatever you imagined, it wasn’t anything like Maggie.
  • Donald Jay Levit @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
  • Glenn Lovell @ CinemaDope.com
    • Excerpt: Arnie rises to the challenge and gives what may be his best dramatic turn … He’s so good as the protective father we’re left to wonder why he doesn’t tackle more such offbeat roles.
  • Paulo Peralta @ CinEuphoria [Portuguese]
  • João Pinto @ Portal Cinema [Portuguese]
  • Jerry Roberts @ Armchair Cinema
    • Excerpt: s a thriller that doesn’t ultimately work, but you almost feel the need to applaud the effort. Odd to say, but that’s kind of refreshing. In a year that is offering us a vast minefield of movies in which no one even tried – Taken 3, Paul Blart 2, Unfriended, The Longest Ride – here is a genre film that works hard to give us something new. Ultimately, it doesn’t work, but you sense that there was a great effort to make something special.
