"I made a promise to your mother,that I would protect you. Yeah, but...what about you guys? What if I hurt you? Don't worry.Caroline and I, we know the precautions."
Schwarzenegger performing in a horror that eventually turns into a drama. It's not what you expect from this action film icon. Strange but true, the one-liner "I'll be back" is even being recycled, but it's not said by Arnold this time. One fact is certain, Schwarzenegger will not go down in history as the actor who's suitable for a character part, but I must admit that the effort he did here, produced an admirable final result.

Maggie is possibly the most introspective zombie movie out there. Most films about zombies are about killing them - or surviving them - but zombies are usually highly featured. In Maggie, you see very few zombies and it's really about a father and daughter - their relationship and coping with what is a certain death.
Arnold Schwarzeneggar is the father and despite being one of the biggest action stars of all time, he really manages to pull of a nuanced and even tender role. I have to admit I wasn't sure what to expect, but he really does manage to put his heart on his sleeve and you get the sense he's struggling with what is essentially having to deal with the death of his daughter. His daughter is played by Abigail Breslin - who broke out in Little Miss Sunshine and has previously …
