Having been broken out from the lab that created them, six winged children have cared for themselves over the last two years in an isolated mountain home. Their fragile peace ends when wolf-boys (known as Erasers) abduct their youngest. The flock (as they're called) takes flight for a rescue, only to discover their true situation.

Did You Know?


Not only is it true that no one speaks Fang's name in the movie, research into all movie sources reveal that, while the other orphans have stories about their names, no one gives 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: Yeah, I'm gonna need breakfast first.

Fang: Good choice.
Max: You're right. One cookie's a snack, two's a meal.

Well, I give it an A for effort
2 October 2016 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

I don't really want to trash this movie. When I saw the synopsis, I thought this was right up my alley: a sci-fi fantasy superhero action adventure with lots of girl power. It was a ride that I wanted to go on.

Now I'm on the ride, and it is giving me everything that the synopsis said it would give me, but it's not grabbing me like I would hope it would.

Another young adult book being adapted like Hunger games of Maze Runner, the movie is a about a group of kids that have been genetically altered with a series of test and now they have retractable wings (They barely used in the film). They escaped from their lab and now are in hiding, until one of them was found and kidnapped and now the rest have to save this child from the captives.

The movie does suffer from not having the same budget as the Divergent series, to name one, although I can't knock what they did with what they had. Not the most impressive production design, but it was effective.

I just felt that it did not gel or flow naturally at all. Maximum Ride force feeds the viewers a great story that's filled with cheesy dialog and corny acting. It was to the point that I almost felt I was watching a parody of a young adult book adaption, when I know that was not the intent of the production.

I don't want to be harsh on such a cool concept that was pretty well made from what looks like a shoe string budget in comparison, to others in its genre, but a lot of times it made me feel like I was trying my best to get through the book and finish, when sometime into it I became disinterested in doing so
