Maggie (2015) Review:
With the recent release of movies such as Starry Eyes, Contagion orSpring, it seems like a whole new trend in horror to have dramas that follow the last days of an infected person as she/he turns into a zombie or else. Hence, Maggie’s story might surprise most of Arnold Schwarzenegger fans, but will surely not fool horror fans! Whereas the titles cited above are all great movies, I think this one is just doing a mediocre job out of the concept.
Maggie tries to focus on the emotional aspect of the transformation but personally failed at touching me. The movie is really slow from start to end, without many dialogues, and a lot of interminable scenes following the everyday moves of the characters, doing the dishes, eating, etc. Both the characters of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin and really sad, dark and quiet. All of this gives the movie a cold and dry look to the movie, which is actually the best thing about it.
The problem for me was that nothing really happens in the story. Ok, it is emotional and the psychological aspect is interesting – but that shouldn’t stop the movie from having events happening. My overall feeling is that the movie’s story could have fitted in 20 minutes short. For sure, the acting is great and surely not the problem, but I have the feeling that the movie relied too much on his actors’ name and on the tear-jerking aspect of its story, at the expense of any real substance.
I would recommend it to non-horror fans who might find it interesting. To horror fans, I warmly recommend Contagion and the excellent Starry Eyes instead.
