​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

MAGGIE (2015)


Wow are we way behind on these. Movie #43 of 2015 is the recent release Maggie. It stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as an Iowa farmer who is taking care of his incurable and infected daughter during a virus outbreak that changes people into zombies. Arnold fights one zombie and wins but do not be fooled into thinking this is an action film. This is a pretty quiet film as Arnold speaks softly, emotionally and plays a part he's never even remotely approached before. He's good but awfully hard to forget he's Arnold. Abigail Breslin is heartbreaking at times as the daughter. Director Henry Hobson is one to watch as he does a wonderful job of setting a downbeat mood, but also finding ways the characters can celebrate what life is left in the time that's left. Again, not a zombie/action movie per se but a film that is worthy of your attention, as long as you don't expect something else.
