Maze Runner

The-Maze-Runner

So I just recently got to see the newest movie adaptation, from the popular book: Maze Runner. The story follows Thomas who awakens going up a caged elevator that opens up to a group of young men standing around him. He quickly comes to realize that he and the others are trapped in “The Maze” but reside in the central safe place for fear of going inside. There are, though, a group of guys that venture inside to try to map the maze. Thomas becomes a runner and has to find a way out, and survive the deadly creatures that reside inside. The movie definitely hit the mark in the exciting category, there really wasn’t a moment when I wasn’t on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. I also liked the way they added some good creepy jumpy moments. The humor attempted was a little weak but it really wasn’t supposed to be that kind of movie anyways so not really a big deal, and the ending was a little weird (but hey as long as it’s sticking to the book, which I haven’t gotten around to reading, that’s totally ok with me). If you see it you’ll definitely see that there’s going to be a sequel, so that’s definitely something to look forward to.

Pros:

Great action movie, as well as a little creepy. Ended satisfyingly (with expectations of a sequel. Had some great actors (I love British actors!!!) Great theme, storyline, dialogue, etc!

Cons:

Lacking in their humor’s quality, jokes were cheesy.

Favorite Character:

It’s a very tough choice between Newt (Played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster) and Minho (Played by Ki Hong Lee). Newt for his actor (not that his character as the right-hand-man wasn’t a great character), and Newt for his character as that one runner that doesn’t give up and sticks with Thomas’s crazy reckless  curiosity.
