The Maze Runner is based on James Dashner’s 2009 book of the same name. The film is the first installment in The Maze Runner film series that stars Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Will Poulter.
Based on James Dashner’s popular young adult novel, The Maze Runner, this one has the ability to make you feel claustrophobic, every time the runners squeeze themselves through the narrow pathways of the maze.
After erasing his memory, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) is mysteriously left in a grassy field, surrounded by high walls of a gigantic maze, where a few other boys have been trapped too. Horrified by the situation and plagued by flashes of an unsettling dream, Thomas seeks answers from fellow prisoners, who are equally clueless.
All they know is how every morning, the door to the maze opens, giving the best runners of the group an opportunity to find a way out. However, they must return before the gate closes, as spending the night inside would mean battling dangerous creatures called the Grievers. In spite of multiple attempts, no one has ever escaped the maze so far. Now will Thomas be the first one?
All the young boys who have been trapped have to consistently deal with confounding problems and to find solutions with the limited resources available to them. Well that’s what The Maze Runner is about.
What’s good about The Maze Runner is that fact that it complements the novel. Although the young protagonist draws maximum attention, the co-characters too are believable.
Wes Ball has neither made use to 3D nor special effects to distract attention. It’s just a simple tale that has been told even more simply and that’s what striking about this one.
All is all should not be missed and one must try and see the movie once.
It's engaging, its engrossing and entertaining; well we are talking about Wes Ball directed The Maze Runner. The Maze Runner is based on James Dash...3.0
