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.

Who would have thought that Arnold Schwarzenegger would have such a tender side?

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.

Maggie could have been a rare treat... Instead, what we get is a genuinely new take that winds up feeling, somehow, like the same old stuff we've seen a million times before.

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.

Unlike so many zombie movies before it, Maggie doesn't want its characters to take charge of their life. It's more interested in handing over the keys to their demise. That's what makes it so terrifying - and powerful.
