Bill and Coker take sanctuary at an abbey, whose abbess says she wants to set up a haven for blind and sighted refugees. However Bill discovers she is sacrificing old and weak people to the Triffids to keep them at bay. He travels to see his father, collecting two gun-toting little girls on the way. Jo, having realised that Torrence lied to her about Bill's death, makes a broadcast warning people about him before escaping from London and also arriving at Dennis's. Father and son aim to create a mutant Triffid which will sterilise the existing ones when it mates with them but Dennis is stung whilst experimenting and dies. An aeroplane flies overhead distributing leaflets to say that Coker has established a Triffid-free community on the Isle of Wight in an effort to rebuild society and Bill and Jo and the girls intend to go there. First, however, they must overcome not only the menacing Triffids outside the house but Torrence and his gunmen, who show up threatening to kill the girls if ... Written by don @ minifie-1

part two, as with part one very different from book.
29 December 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bill goes to a commune run by a mother superior, in the book she is misguided but means well, in this she is a very different kettle of fish. Despite all the rotting bodies littered every where, people seem to take scant notice of the ensuing stench.The book has an lethal epidemic run riot throughout Britain, but here there is no epidemic, instead we see a lot of Torrence, and Jo is with him, believing him to be genuinely trying to help people.In fact Torrence is hell bent on killing Bill Masen.The Triffids in this version come in both male and female forms, and Bills father is trying to find away to use genetic cloning to destroy them.The special effects are pretty good,in part one, the sky in London during the solar activity is very pretty, and looks real. Towards the end I did feel some tension, but the story line is not as good as the book.I can still not see why the changes were made.Little regards has been given to how people are trying to rebuild a sustainable future, with clean water and food after stocks have run out.If you have not read the book, you may well enjoy it, if you do not feel to dragged down by it's negative view. I feel it has been made in a more action genre vein.
