Movie Review: The Maze Runner


Hi All!! I know that it has been close to two years since this movie was being released. Yet here I am finally getting to watch it (at long last)!! But hey, better late than never right? 😛

Anyway now I finally know why there was so much hype when the movie was first released back in year 2014!! This is such an amazing movie!! I totally love the cast and the plot!! Although the Griever (a deadly technological machine thingy that kills or hunts the boys in the movie) is really disgusting and scary looking. The sound it emits is seriously a horrible groan!! 😦

Anyway this is one of the best science fiction movie in year 2014 (at least in my opinion it is)!! The storyline of this movie is about how boys were being thrown into a place with a maze surrounding them with no knowledge of their past. They have to roam the maze in the day if they are Runners (it is a role in the place called Glade which they are being thrown into) and find a route out to the world. Important thing is they have to be back at the start of the maze or the Glade before night time, if not they will be trapped in the maze and death will eventually be their endings.

One day the leader of Glade named Alby and his runner leader named Minho went into the maze and fails to come back out before night befalls, Thomas (the new guy that arrive Glade) spotted them a distance from the entrance and yet at this time the entrance to the maze is slowly closing up…

Being the ever brave and curious one in the group, he buck up all his courage and dash into the entrance and met up with the unconscious Alby and tired (of dragging Alby) Minho. Thomas manage to think of a way to store Alby in a safe place that the Griever wont be able to spot him. Meanwhile he and Minho ran for their life as a Griever spotted them at that moment…

In the end Thomas managed to lure one of the Griever to the closing entrance and it died on impact. The two survive the night and at dawn they live to tell the tale and together they help Alby out of the maze back to the temporary safety of the Glade! 🙂

They later went back into the maze and found a way out to the world. They went back to share this news with the other boys. The haughty guy (Gally) refuse to go along with them and even brain washed a few of the boys to refrain from following them. 😦

Those brave enough to tag along with Thomas and Minho manage to seek their way to the entrance of exit to the world. 🙂

It ended showing that they are survivors of this trial. This is all a science experiment about how their brains works and their survival instinct kicks in! The lead sciencist Ava Paige informs the whole other groups of sciencists that now they have so many survivors, they will all be put into another more challenging task or place to undergo the second phase of this experiment!! :/

I will give it a rating of 4 out of 5 stars!! It is an action packed movie and can definitely make your heart rate increase and pulse rate to nearly wanna burst!! Especially when the characters are running away from the Griever!! 😉

And so we will have the sequel in year 2015 (which to tell the truth I have yet to watch that)!! I guess I will watch it next week. My heart can only take so much panic in one sitting of movie!! 😉

Stay tuned for my next movie review updates!! 😉

Have a great weekend,
