Movie Details
The Maze Runner

The Maze Runner

Thomas wakes up in an elevator, remembering nothing but his own name. He emerges into a world of about 60 teen boys who have learned to survive in a completely enclosed environment, subsisting on their own agriculture and supplies from below. A new boy arrives every 30 days. The original group has been in "the glade" for two years, trying to find a way to escape through a maze that surrounds their living space. They have begun to give up hope when a comatose girl arrives with a strange note, and their world begins to change.

The Good, The Bad and The WICKD:

Young Adult Dystopian films ("Hunger Games", "Divergent", "The Giver") seem to be the new genre craze after the slew of Vampire films (thanks, "Twilight"), but what makes "The Maze Runner" different though, is a testosterone driven male cast that's less about the lovin' and more on the shovin'. It's a show of personalities clashing in order to survive a harsh unknown setting, that's not too far off from being an interesting mash-up of "The Lord Of The Flies" and TV's "Lost". Teen heartthrob, Dylan O'Brien plays the lead Thomas, who does a good job bringing the author James Dashner's lead to life. At the start of the film, audiences may be puzzled with the questions; 'Who is Thomas and why is he sent to The Maze? Who are behind The Maze? And what is The Maze?', but this is normal and the movie serves as a start of something much bigger and deeper than its Maze-y facade. With certain revelations made, further questions are fueled making audiences hungry for more unlocking of sinister secrets as they try to figure out the puzzle that is this suspense-laden film.

Look Out For:

The snarky personality clashes between Gally (Will Poulter) and Thomas. Actor Will Poulter was also the annoying kid in "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" in 2010.

Trivia:

Director Wes Ball has confirmed that the sequel, "The Scorch Trials" is in pre-production. With that, the final movie "The Death Cure" should be next, just like the book trilogy.

Best Watched With:

This will be a hit with teens and also for those who have read the books.
