Consensus: Maggie lurches a bit clumsily at times, but is partially redeemed by strong performances and an unexpectedly thoughtful tone.

Most of Maggie is so dark you can barely make out the zombies or the humans. It also moves more slowly than the ghouls.

The problem, aside from not much going on, is that Schwarzenegger remains a severely limited actor, so there's not that much character to study. Potentially interesting concept; wrong star.

Maggie is beautifully shot. Hobson and director of photography Lukas Ettlin make excellent use of natural lighting to create a mood of disaster and despair.

I feel some guilt in giving a film that tries this hard a negative review. But I couldn't shake my sense of aggravation at how it all plays out, especially in Schwarzenegger's case.

Its creepy atmosphere aside, "Maggie" is a slog of the living dead.

It's a serious, heartfelt, dramatic turn, and he totally nails it. I'm as surprised as you are.

Ultimately, neither the brain-eating genre or the heart-breaking one is enhanced by this mash-up. Like Celine Dion's cover of AC/DC's You Shook Me All Night Long, file it under the category of "interesting-but-why?"

It's a sad story, or would be if the zombie apocalypse backdrop - and the inky splotches creeping across Maggie's body - didn't wreak such havoc with the movie's unsmiling sincerity.

Maggie's power lies with its characters and the moving performances from its two leads; it's a fresh new angle at a genre that is proving to be timeless.
