The Maze Runner a movie review

Every boy stares into the box, the same one that comes every month. The boy inside, like all the others had, cowers into the corners of the large metal cage, wet with heavy breaths.

Memories are a cherished thing when you are stuck in the Glade, unable to remember anything except your name. You have no life to remember before the Glade.

When Thomas, played by Dylan O’Brien, arrives, he is thrown from the box by one of the guys. Immediately, he gets up and runs, going surprisingly fast. Or at least, until he face plants.

Life at the Glade changes nearly immediately after Thomas appears. He is not like the others who follow the rules and do their part. He is far worse. He is curious.

As the saying goes, “Curiosity killed the cat.” I will leave it to you to see if Thomas lives or not, but things do not look so good when change comes.

As the movie progressed, I can tell you a lot of people were making connections to other movies about dystopias like The Hunger Games and Divergent. The director, Wes Ball, did a terrific job of changing a small idea into a huge master plan, but it seemed to have been built off of similar ideas of the two popular movies.

Sitting in the theater, I could only think of how much of a plot twist there was. I loved the way the scenes always held your attention. “Leaning off the edge on my seat,” would not be adequate enough to describe my response.

The Maze Runner did hold most people’s attention and left them hanging at the end, jaws dropping. Why “jaws dropping,” you ask? You will just have to see it to find out.

But remember:

W.I.C.K.E.D is good.
