Movie Review: The Maze Runner


The Maze Runner is an action packed movie that was released to theaters in September. Dylan O’Brien plays Thomas, who is the main character. Thomas wakes up in the middle of a maze with no memory of the past. He does not know anyone and there is no escape out of there, except through the maze. Only the maze runners are allowed to enter the maze to try to figure it out. If you are not a maze runner and you enter, then you will most likely die. The maze’s pattern changes every night so that it makes it nearly impossible to escape. If you enter the maze, you only have until the night is over to return, or you will probably die. Everyone is scared to enter the maze except Thomas. Therefore, he becomes a maze runner. He and one of the other runners figure out the maze and help most of the people escape. They are now faced with another challenge after the escape the maze.

I thought The Maze Runner was very interesting and intense. You never know what is going to happen next, and I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. It is definitely a movie worth seeing!
