Maximum Ride is a 2016 film directed by Jay Martin, adapted from The Angel Experiment, the first book of the Maximum Ride series. It stars Allie Evans as Max and Peter O'Brien as Jeb.


Examples:

  • Adaptational Villainy: Book Ari was a Tragic Villain. Movie Ari is much crueler and more violent even as a young child, and chooses to become an Eraser.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: Nudge is less talkative and more rebellious.
  • Age Lift: In the books, the kids ranged from 6 to 14; they are all significantly older, and in promotional material, Max was mentioned as being 17. Also, Ari is now Max’s age rather than Angel’s.
  • A Minor Kidroduction
  • All There in the Manual:
    • A lot of information about the Flock and their powers is left out, although it’s briefly visible in the files during the opening credits.
    • An especially glaring example is how Fang is never actually called by his name by other characters in the script, but is still listed in the credits.
  • Advertisement:
  • Artistic License – Biology: The wings of the Flock are not nearly large enough to actually keep them aloft.
  • Canon Foreigner: A scientist played by Tina Huang.
  • Compressed Adaptation: Cuts off the second half of the book, ending with the Flock escaping from the School with Angel.
  • The Film of the Book: Or part of the book, anyway.
  • Retractable Appendages: The Flock’s wings, in contrast to the books.
