Question about the end?
22 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off i thought the movie was really great! I highly enjoyed it. However, i'm confused about the ending. When Stack and the other female guard are leading in the new girls, they shake their head at one of the 'repeaters' who was it? I didn't think it was Vanessa being it was said she was in high school. Any ideas on who it was?

It kinda left you hanging there and i'm curious if anyone else felt a little in the dark at the end being they didn't show any one or any of the girls. over all though it was a very good movie. i would recommend it to anyone to watch. the guard did a commendable thing for those girls to get them to work hard and believe in themselves.
