Tears Of The Father
The story of Maggie takes place in an apocalyptic era of great disease. A new plague has enveloped the world and turned it's victims into flesh-eating zombies.
"Maggie" tells the struggle of Wade Vogel(Schwarzenegger) and his daughter, Maggie's attempt to overcome this consuming pandemic.
Maggie(Breslin) is a young woman who becomes afflicted with this horrific disease and her father, Wade does everything in his power to keep her safe from harm.
Now, one would think having a flesh-eating disease is hard enough to deal with on it's own, but when you throw in a group of fearful townspeople, things can get a bit tricky.
In this film, you will see sacrifice and the alienation of a father and daughter facing insurmountable odds to enjoy what little time...life will allow them to have.
Remember Me As I Was... And Not By Who I Have Become
The transformation, you will see within "Maggie" is one that doesn't just occur in the physical form, but on an emotional level as well.
Both Maggie and Vogel must come to terms with the long road ahead, as they travel through the 5 stages of loss. Denial..Anger...Bargaining..Depression and Acceptance. The bad part is "No One Has Died"..yet.
Along with each physical stage of Maggie's transformation, you get to see how even the closest of friends and family fade into nonexistence.
This kind of reminds you of some of the illnesses and afflictions many people today face who are often shunned by family and the world at large.
Maybe in a film such as this, people can learn that loving someone unconditionally can take the sting out of the end... we all will face one day.
After Watching, Maggie
We've got to say that we were quite pleased with the overall depiction of the story.
"Maggie" finds a nice balance of combining a family member's horrific affliction with Arnold's trophy-worthy salt and peppered beard.
Now what could be better than that..lol Only thing we can think of is maybe Arnold's clean-shaven mug popping up in Terminator: Genisys which comes out this week!
