There are 6 children that aren't your average kids. Their names are Max (14 years old), Fang (14), Iggy (14), Nudge (11), Gazzy (8), and Angel (6). They're special hybrid humans; they had 2% avian DNA infused to their human DNA. They escaped from a lab they call "The School" with the help of their caretaker (Jeb Batchleder), and they've been living in the mountains since, even after Jeb dies. But when the half-lupine guards from The School, Erasers, have taken Angel, they go on a exhilarating journey to get her back. Along the way, their mysterious past is being revealed, as well as some stunning secrets. Written by Fyreflight And Jaydea

Did You Know?


It was stated that Fang was not spoken of by name in the movie. I've also noted checking all sources of this movie that while the other orphans have stories about their name, no one seems to give the reason why Fang is called Fang. See more »


Near the beginning of the film, the flock can be seen looking at a map in the computer room, with the company logo of the computer covered by a sticky note. However, in a later scene, the sticky note is not there and the Apple logo on the computer is clearly visible. See more »


Max: I'm sorry for all the time and trouble it cost us, but I'm not sorry that I helped her - it was the right thing to do.
Fang: The right thing to do? Max, were beyond worrying about the right thing to do. They experimenting on us like lab rats. And now we have to run, hide and fight every day just to stay alive.

If Only It Had The Budget It Deserved
30 August 2016 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

As one of the many people who have read the books, I was looking forward to this. I could hardly believe it when I heard that they were making one of my favorite books into a movie, suffice to say I don't read a lot. So when I finished watching I found myself baffled. Not because of the terrible VFX. But because of the production value, it astonishes me, How Hollywood can justify giving hundreds of millions to a remake that nobody wants but when a novel like Maximum Ride is made, the studios are reluctant to back it up so the author has to pitch in? In what world does this make sense? If you are unfamiliar with the story, it's about six kids who have two percent bird DNA and are kept in a prison called School. They brake out and try to survive on there own. If you like the idea as I did, read the books, they are well worth your time, I wish the same could be said for the movie. The only redeeming quality of the movie was Max, She looks the part and if she had actual screenwriters she might have sounded the part as well. I never thought I would ask for a remake for a movie, But this really deserves it and who knows? Maybe it will happen one day.
