  • The Maze Runner

    The Maze Runner (2014)

    Rated PG-13, 113 min. Directed by Wes Ball. Starring Dylan O’Brien, Aml Ameen, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario, Blake Cooper, Ki Hong Lee and Patricia Clarkson.

    With movie studios chasing after the next potentially lucrative teen magnet, The Maze Runner makes a strong case for its continued existence. Much like amnesiac teen Thomas (O’Brien), we’re thrown into the Glade – an oasis populated strictly by other young men and surrounded on all sides by a mammoth, ever-shifting maze – with minimal preparation. None of the designated Runners has managed to find a way out in three years of exploration, nor have any of them survived a night spent among the biomechanical beasts called Grievers. There’s no need to read James Dashner’s source novel in order to deduce that Thomas will be The One Who Changes Everything. Even if it doesn’t prove to be the Hunger Games-level hit its producers clearly desired, The Maze Runner's intertwining tensions of schoolyard bluster, dwindling supplies, and what’s beyond those walls make it the best of the wannabes we’ve seen so far. Read a full review of The Maze Runner.
