MOVIE REVIEW: MAGGIE

Sunday, June 07, 2015 Posted by Kevan Lee , , , No comments


Arnold Schwarzenegger return to the big screen not as the Terminator but as a father who is battling the hard truth that his daughter will be a zombie. The world is hit with an unknown virus and his daughter is affected when she got bitten by one of the zombie when she escaped house to the city. I will give this show a 2 out of 5 stars and will only recommend you to watch if you are interested in melodrama zombie film. I remind you all again this is not World War Z, therefore don't put your hopes so high. Read more to find out what I personally think about this movie. 

THE GOOD

Suspense is the biggest good thing in this movie. The main characters acting was okay and believable but suspense is everything. That is because you can't wait to see what happen when she turns into a zombie and start biting the hell out of her dad, Arnold. There are some good emotional feeling that Arnold brought into the movie, we somehow feel how hard for him to decide on killing his own daughter. The story setting although with minimal zombie encounters are pretty good and it puts you on the edge of your seat in term of suspense and the guilty feeling of killing someone you know.
 
THE BAD

The story is like a super slow version of a PS3 game called "Last of Us". The dialogue was almost close to none, well I guess that could be good also since Arnold is not necessary good with his speech. Some part of the movie, I was pretty glad that there are subtitles there. Other than that, there are too much cliche from a zombie movie, I prefer something like World War Z, fast and just mindless, not too much like Resident Evil though. This show feels like it suppose to be a drama instead. 

CONCLUSION 

Get a PS3/PS4 and play Last of Us, you will have much more emotional and heart thumping moment compare with this movie. Besides that, it has a damn good storyline and pacing with lots of action. Therefore, either play the game or just totally skip this movie. Wait for the pirates to do their job. Amen.
