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.Written by
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 »
After Max is shot, she is given a new shirt from the girl she saves. In the next flight scenes, Max can be seen flying with the shirt she wore before she was shot. See more »
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.
The... the right thing to do? Max, we're beyond worrying about the right thing to do. They experimented on us like lab rats, and now we have to run, hide and fight every day just to stay alive.

No just no
This was the first book series that I read so as you can guess I am really attached to the characters and the plot. When there was first news about a movie being made I was really excited because this was the type of action filled book that deserved a really good (emphasis on really good) film made for it. When that fell through I was pretty upset. But not as upset when I saw the trailer for this. I had been wanting a movie or some sort of live action adaption for a while, but this was just a joke. It was low budget, didn't follow the story line and the casting was all wrong. Nothing against the actors, they did a good job with what they were given, but the only two that looked like their characters were Gazzy and Angel. Nudge was too old, Iggy was too fit and attractive, Fang isn't blonde and does not have short hair, and Max is not a white girl with platinum blonde hair. For a fan who has waited years for a film to be made, this is just such a disappointment. Terrible sequels that no one has asked for have been made with million dollar budgets, but this story, that is loved by millions, doesn't even get a film that has enough money to give them wings that don't look like something made in the 1980's. Again nothing against the actors. They all did a nice job, but the whole film itself isn't Maximum Ride. It just isn't. I'm disappointed.
