Second Opinion – Maggie (2015)

12 May 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Maggie, 2015.

Directed by Henry Hobson

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Abigail Breslin and Joely Richardson.

Synopsis:

A teenage girl in the Midwest becomes infected by an outbreak of a disease that slowly turns the infected into cannibalistic zombies. During her transformation, her loving father stays by her side.

The zombie genre has hit a new high in popularity with the success of the FX show The Walking Dead and the last thing cinema needed was another zombie film where an infection breaks out and a band of ‘everyday’ people try to survive for two hours. To the credit of first-time director Henry Hobson’s Maggie is not the typical zombie film, but it offers essentially nothing new to the genre either, made worse by the casting of Arnold Schwarzenegger in a role in which he can establish no authority.

Hobson’s crucial mistake is making his film so dour and one-note without »

Movie Review – Maggie (2015)

9 May 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Maggie, 2015.

Directed by Henry Hobson.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Abigail Breslin and Joely Richardson.

Synopsis:

A teenage girl in the Midwest becomes infected by an outbreak of a disease that slowly turns the infected into cannibalistic zombies. During her transformation, her loving father stays by her side.

Watching a loved one suffer knowing that there is absolutely no way you can help is one of the most gut-wrenching and emotionally exhausting feelings in life. Equally as painful might be the recipient of the sickness aware of how much an agonizing toll the experience takes on the worrier. For better or worse this is the dynamic that Maggie explores for roughly 90 minutes. This isn’t The Walking Dead, but rather a subtle, more dramatic take on the zombie pandemic that has taken pop-culture by storm.

Filling out the two lead roles are Abigail Breslin portraying an infected daughter with an estimated eight »

Film Review: Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Dour Zombie Drama ‘Maggie’

8 May 2015 6:03 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – A common quagmire during a zombie outbreak, as expressed in the 367 films about the topic made about such an event since 2000, concerns what to do when your loved one is infected. For many movies, it makes for the tearful, climactic moment; for the dour drama “Maggie,” it’s the total narrative examination that just about fills half a movie, featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger as a rugged, lumberjack dad who is disturbed by the ailing conditions of his infected daughter (played by Abigail Breslin).

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Directed by newcomer Henry Hobson from a screenplay written by an AOL user name (John Scott 3), “Maggie” is a maudlin vamp on a farmer father living with his daughter’s condition, a “sick kid” narrative with a hazardous ticking biological time bomb. After rescuing her from government quarantine, Schwarzenegger’s Wade watches over Maggie, getting her medical attention and keeping bossy policemen at bay. Meanwhile, »

From Ahnuld to Actor: The Transition of a Former Action Star

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin in ‘Maggie

Maggie pits Arnold Schwarzenegger against zombies, but not in the way you’d expect. The titular character (Abigail Breslin) is infected, but Wade (Schwarzenegger) isn’t driving into the city to put down the zombie threat, he’s bringing his daughter home before the disease reaches its inhumane conclusion. Protocols are implemented to keep the virus contained to the small midwestern town, but doctors set aside regulations to let Wade spend time with his daughter before she is sent away to the quarantine zone.

The stage of Maggie’s infection is still in its infancy, but any sign of worsening symptoms will get her sent straight to a quarantine area. Wade’s second-wife (Joely Richardson) has sent her children to stay with family outside of town, so it’s just the three of them in a makeshift farmhouse as they wait for inevitable to come. »

The Big Z: Hobson’s Maudlin Debut Splices Tone Unevenly

Pulled mysteriously from the Toronto Film Festival lineup last fall after it was picked up for distribution by Lionsgate, Henry Hobson’s zombie drama Maggie would go on to premiere at the Tribeca Film Fest shortly before its theatrical release. Basically a flashier version of the disease drama, Hobson uses the apocalyptic threat of a zombie pandemic as a genre injection. An allegory for every major disease, from cancer to Ebola or AIDs, the idea remains oddly innovative despite the lackluster execution. The juxtaposing elements of familial drama versus generic bits of genre tend to suck the life out of each another, making the film oddly misshapen. An aura of somnolence portends to haunt the proceedings, but the only thing that actually feels infected with anything is the film’s lethargic energy.

This Intense Exclusive 'Maggie' Preview Will Fill You With Undead Dread

7 May 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Prepare to get freaked out just by the mood of this unnerving clip from the zombie movie "Maggie," which opens this Friday, May 8.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has top billing in the independent horror drama about a father standing by the side of his daughter, who becomes infected in a cannibalistic outbreak, but Ahhhhnold is nowhere to be found in this scene. Instead, it focuses on the titular Maggie, played by a terrified Abigail Breslin, and it doesn't take a lot of context to see that she's in deep poop with that cut on her hand.

Joely Richardson's Caroline tells us most of what we need to know in her expression -- that this is no ordinary wound -- and the music and scene-setting of Henry Hobson's film cover the rest. We only see 41 seconds here, but they make an impact. Still, this isn't meant to be a "Dawn of the Dead »

Maggie Gets A Lego Trailer Which Means – Lego Schwarzenegger!

7 May 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

There isn’t much that’s cooler than being Lego-fied, and while it’s unclear exactly how that connects to a story about a zombie and her dad, Maggie now has a Lego trailer, and it’s pretty awesome.

It even has jazzy fire effects.

Curiously, it seems to bring out the tone a little better, which is hard to put together with the fact that you’re looking at Legos.

The film hits in limited release and VOD this Friday, so make sure you get to it!

 

By the time a necrotic viral pandemic spread cross-country to small town America and infected the film’s titular character, 16-year-old Maggie (Abigail Breslin), authorities had established a protocol for patients infected with the deadly virus: they are removed from society and taken to special isolation wards to complete the agonizing and dangerous transformation into one of the walking dead.

Maggie (2015) movie review

6 May 2015 11:50 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

By Jonathan Weichsel

MoreHorror.com

Maggie stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Abigail Breslin, and Joely Richardson.

Like many guys who grew up in the 1980's, I have been a fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger for as long as I can remember. His films from back then are exciting, gritty, oftentimes dark, and full of some of the greatest action sequences ever filmed. Schwarzenegger made a real impression on screen in the 1980's. Sure he was a power fantasy for young men, but he was also a symbol of everything that was either right or wrong about the 1980's, depending on who you ask; the decade's excesses, its arrogance, and its exaggerated sense of American exceptionalism.

Critics claimed back then that Schwarzenegger wasn't a good actor, but you just have to watch Predator in order to prove them wrong. Acting is living and doing under imaginary circumstances, and Schwarzenegger, compared to the rest of the cast in that movie, »

The Maggie Movie Trailer Gets The Lego Treatment

It seems like every movie released these days has their trailer recreated with Legos. Now comes the stop-motion trailer for Maggie starring Lego Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lego Abigail Breslin.

By the time a necrotic viral pandemic spread cross- country to small town America and infected the film’s titular character, 16-­year-­old Maggie (Breslin), authorities had established a protocol for patients infected with the deadly virus: they are removed from society and taken to special isolation wards to complete the agonizing and dangerous transformation into one of the walking dead.

The authorities do not speak about what happens after that. Wade Vogel (Schwarzenegger) is not ready to give up his daughter.

After weeks of searching for Maggie when she runs away following her diagnosis, Wade brings his daughter back to her home and family – stepmother, Caroline (Richardson), and her two children -­ for whatever time may be left as »

Interview: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Joely Richardson and Henry Hobson Talk Maggie

6 May 2015 8:56 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

The graphically horrific murders of soulless, menacing zombies, whose only goal is to devour human flesh, has largely revived interest in the horror sub-genre in recent years. But the post-apocalyptic genre has taken a gripping turn with the new independent horror thriller, ‘Maggie,’ which will be released in select theaters and on VOD on Friday. The drama features an emotionally-driven and unique story in the fact that it humanizes people’s slow transformation into zombies. The movie, which marks the feature film directorial debut of graphic designer and commercial helmer, Henry Hobson, also offers a heartbreaking examination into the prolonged stages of grief that families experience as they watch their loved  [ Read More ]

Arnold Schwarzenegger tries his hand at drama with “Maggie”

6 May 2015 4:55 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Ever since he left office as the two term governor of California and returned to the acting world, I’ve been keeping a close eye on the film choices of Arnold Schwarzenegger. He’s slowly gone from being a wise cracking killing machine (sometimes literally) to someone more contemplative of the toll it all takes on a person. To be sure, the movies are almost all throwaway popcorn entertainment regardless, but there’s a definite shift that’s easy to notice (the very talented Matt Singer often writes about this in terms of Schwarzenegger, so I highly recommend reading something of his). This week, there’s another new side of Schwarzenegger on display in Maggie, a zombie drama in which he’s trying to avoid killing for one of the first times in his career. As a quick plot summation, the film follows a farmer who sees his daughter slowly turning into a zombie. »

Shock Video: Arnold Schwarzenegger & Joely Richardson on Zombie Drama, Maggie

5 May 2015 12:23 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

As a whole, Maggie is unexpected. A tender zombie drama, the film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger in one of his most dramatic roles. He wears it well. The stoic, often unstoppable hero of so much action instead transmits a somber, unstoppable will here, defying rationale to care for his transforming daughter. Alongside the superstar is Joely…

Review: Schwarzenegger tries to stretch in slow-burn zombie film 'Maggie'

5 May 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For someone who has been making films as long as he has, there is a surprisingly short list of films where I would argue that Arnold Schwarzenegger gives genuinely good performances. As a movie star, he doesn't really have to give good performances. That's one of the things that makes being a movie star so weird. There are legitimate legendary movie stars who have never given what I would call a good performance, but who do their jobs perfectly well. Being a movie star is far more about having a particular personality that you bring to every role. Most of the most famous Schwarzenegger films, he's just playing variations on himself. Even though I adore films like "Conan The Barbarian" and the first two "Terminator" films, I think his work in them is good because the directors of those films knew exactly what they wanted out of Schwarzenegger, and they »

Interview: Joely Richardson Talks Maggie (Exclusive)

5 May 2015 2:45 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Parents who are forced to helplessly watch one of their children contend with a terminal illness, especially one that leaves them without control over their instincts and actions, is a undoubtedly devastating process. But when the parent’s loyalty to caring for their sick child puts their other children at risk, they’re forced to contend with the difficult moral question of how they should best protect their entire family. That conflicting judgment is powerfully showcased in Joely Richardson’s upcoming horror thriller, ‘Maggie,’ which will be released in select theaters and on VOD on Friday. The drama, which was helmed by first-time feature director, Henry Hobson, showcases the Golden Globe Award-nominated actress’  [ Read More ]

'Maggie' Clip Has Schwarzenegger Ready for a Zombie Attack

4 May 2015 12:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With his upcoming indie zombie drama Maggie opening in theaters on May 8, Arnold Schwarzenegger has released yet another clip on his Facebook page. This scene shows the actor's character Wade, trying to protect his daughter Maggie (Abigail Breslin) from a group of zombies. We know that Maggie eventually becomes infected by the undead at some point in this movie, but it isn't clear if that has happened yet in this scene.

Maggie tells the story of a deadly zombie virus that has put a plague on the world. When Maggie, a vivacious young woman becomes infected, her father brings her home to let her be with their family. As Maggie's condition worsens, their relationship is tested, a father's love holding on stronger than the disease. This heart-wrenching twist on the zombie apocalypse puts a human face on an inexplicable horror.

The supporting cast is rounded out by Joely Richardson, »

Maggie Clip: Arnold Schwarzenegger Faces off Against Zombies

If you caught my Maggie review, you know I’m not particularly into the film, but there are a few instances where first-time feature director Henry Hobson puts some really interesting spins on the zombie apocalypse scenario. However, sadly, this new Maggie clip cuts just short of revealing one of them. No, you don’t want to spoil a movie in the marketing campaign, but had this clip lasted mere seconds longer, it could have given you something curious to chew on without revealing the entire scene. You can check out the clip for yourself below. Maggie arrives On Demand and in theaters in New York City on May 8th. The film stars Arnold SchwarzeneggerAbigail BreslinJoely Richardson, J.D.
