Capsule Review: The Maze Runner


In a populated, alternate dystopian world where teenage boys are unknowingly trapped in the maze, THE MAZE RUNNER escapes the clichéd territory by banking on its more intuitive characters against the suspicious society they strive in. It lays ground of a ‘Lord of the Flies’-like setting that raises the oblivion to pseudo-‘The Hunger Games’ level, but still knows its destination. While the revelatory ending further leads to a labyrinth of ‘lies’, THE MAZE RUNNER is an intriguing and heightening run that has yet to release viewers from its enigmatic maze. Non-book readers would still be reeling on the puzzling turn of events but the next leg of answers is something to look forward to in its next installment.

Rating: 3.0/5.0
