The Maze Runner

Action Sci-Fi


 

A young man named Thomas is deposited into a strange community that is surrounded by a giant maze.

"The Maze Runner" has the potential to be a truly great dystopian action film, if only it would get out of its own way. Our special snowflake of a leading man seems to be plagued by coincidences in a storyline littered with cryptic hints that no one wants to investigate. An unwelcome romance thankfully takes a backseat to the strongest part of the movie, the action. No expense has been spared in the creation and movement of the maze, making this a shiny but unfulfilling endeavour. Born to run.
