DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Horror Thriller - This is far from what one would expect from a zombie film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger: this is not an action thriller with horror elements but a very slow and dark horror drama, with Schwarzenegger in a rare serious role, and more or less a supporting character to the title character played by Abigail Breslin. While violence and gore is of a distinct PG-13 level, it is still too intense and the film overall too disturbing for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average Like I said, Arnold Schwarzenegger is very good in this movie. It's the movie that lets him down.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Despite its stylistic affectations, Maggie is a thought-provoking blend of post-apocalyptic thriller, teen weeper and horror flick, infused with more intelligence and humanism than that description might imply.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average ...the movie centers on Maggie's dependence on her father, a stoic man torn between protecting his daughter or taking out his gun and making it quick. He (Schwarzenegger) does himself proud with a heartfelt performance that is surely his gentlest, most humane screen acting. Gore is kept to a minimum, a fact likely to disappoint audiences out for blood.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
By the time a necrotic viral pandemic spread cross-country to small town America and infected the film's titular character, 16-year-oldMAGGIE (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. The authorities do not speak about what happens after that.

Wade Vogel (ARNOLD 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 (JOELY RICHARDSON), and her two children - M-- for whatever time may be left as the teenager begins an excruciatingly painful metamorphosis. Having lost Maggie's mother years earlier, Wade is determined to hold on to his precious daughter as long as he can, refusing to surrender her to the local police who show up with orders to take her. As the disease progresses, Caroline decides to take their two younger children and move out, leaving Wade alone with Maggie to watch helplessly as she suffers.
