        "The Maze Runner" is a great Action/Sci-Fi film of 2014. The plot to "The Maze Runner" is that a man named "Thomas" portrayed by "Dylan O' Brien" wakes up on a land with no memory of his past life. On this land there are roughly 20 other males and no females. On the land there is a large maze which some believe is the way out. The introduction to the movie is "Thomas" vomiting whilst being lifted up on an elevator. This scene is intense and is a great start to the movie. The middle of the movie is "Thomas" adjusting to his new environment and trying to find a way out of the maze. The scenes where "Thomas" is trying to find a way out of the maze are thrilling and suspenseful for the most of the part. The scenes where he is adapting to his environment can sometimes drag on. The climax of the film was quite predictable so it didn't make the scene great. The plot twist at the end was handled well but feels like an advertisement for the sequel. The acting in this movie is good, the actors in the movie aren't that experienced so it doesn't make as good acting, for example "Dylan O' Brien" "Kaya Scodelario" are the lead characters in the movie and neither are experienced. The music in the movie composed by "John Paesano" didn't really capture the suspense and thrill that he should've. The thrilling sequences are filmed okay but director "Wes Ball" didn't film the scenes as well as he could have. If you are a person who enjoys action/Sci-Fi's then I recommend you watch "The Maze Runner" as it has a good plot, good acting and a great twist. Although the movie is not perfect some issues are better performances, better action sequences and more thrilling music. I give 2014's "The Maze Runner" a 7/10.

        I have not read any of the books in the series and have to say that I found myself enjoying this a lot more than I thought I would. The first part of the film is particularly enjoyable as Thomas and the rest try to work out why they are there. I also thought it was paced well. Comparisons with Lord of the Flies, Battle Royale and Hunger Games are obvious references but accurate. I thought it a bit too scary for children. The ending had me thinking and I am looking forward to the sequels.

        Better than expected. I'd love to see the rest of the trilogy and more of Thomas Brodie-Sangster. But still, The Maze Runner is still clearly inferior to The Hunger Games, both having a dystopian theme involving teens.

        A bunch of running around to what purpose? And why does everything have to be so damned dark!
