MAZE RUNNER (2014 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Stars ìììì

Maze Runner—one of the better 2014 action films—is good enough to make you desire a sequel. The initial scene opens with Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) waking up in a state of amnesia on the floor of an elevator. The elevator’s doors open to a glade surrounded by a maze. There are other boys there who inform him that there is a way out of the maze. Thomas finds that the maze gates close every night and the maze changes every night which complicates ability to find a final exit. In addition, the maze is inhabited by cyborg Grievers who randomly attack maze runners. Thomas earns his right to be a maze runner and the story is ‘on’ as gates close and gates open, comrades are lost to the cyborg Grievers, and a cyborg Griever is lost to the boys.
