The Maze Runner Review: The film didn’t really captivate me as I thought

The Maze Runner Review: The film didn’t really captivate me as I thought

Here’s a sense of almost comforting routine at the beginning of the new teen sci-fi action film The Maze Runner, steeped as it is in the conventions of its genre, dutiful about hitting all the required notes while maintaining the clueless bravado that it’s showing us something new. The Maze Runner full movie is about as schematic as it gets, but it gets by for a little while on those ritualistic rhythms. But then, like Divergent or The Mortal…

The Maze Runner full movie 2014 Rightfully Deserves An “B” For Rating

The Maze Runner full movie 2014 Rightfully Deserves An “B” For Rating

The Maze Runner full movie 2014 review: Every new YA film that includes a supernatural or dystopian element now sits in the huge shadow of The Hunger Games. The Hunger Games has taken on an epic sci-fi approach weaving social commentary into its dystopian setting. Divergent is content to be a Hunger Games imitator.  And now we have The Maze Runner, a movie edging towards the mystery and sci-fi of The Hunger Games, but attempting to find its own way by establishing a…

The Maze Runner Stands As A Strong Rival Against The Hunger Games And Divergent

The Maze Runner Stands As A Strong Rival Against The Hunger Games And Divergent

The Maze Runner is so obviously an attempt to cash in on the hype for YA adaptations that you may feel your standards drop almost instantly. The movie sits somewhere between The Hunger Games and Divergent in quality — and rips them both off thematically, with a little “Lord of the Flies” thrown in for extra literary cred. Luckily, though, director Wes Ball and his brilliant young cast work extremely hard to counter the derivative…

The Maze Runner: “Everything is going to change”

The Maze Runner: “Everything is going to change”

If you’ve read James Dashner’s The Maze Runner book, watching the Twentieth Century Fox film (released on September 2014; PG-13) is a completely different experience than it would be if you were totally new to the whole story. Instead of wondering how a gaggle of teenaged boys ended up trapped in a clearing surrounded by a constantly changing maze with their memories wiped, you wonder how director Wes Ball will handle all the information that the book…

The pros outweigh the cons in The Maze Runner full movie 2014

The pros outweigh the cons in The Maze Runner full movie 2014

The Maze Runner full movie 2014 – It’s not often my opinion of a movie changes drastically from one day to the next. I’ll enjoy a film as soon as it’s over, but the next day, I’ll reflect and think, “Wait, this part doesn’t make sense. Why would this character behave this way? Is this really how they explained this plot point?” My enjoyment clashes with my analysis and starts a judgment war in my…

The Maze Runner full movie 2014: Maybe the next Maze Runner will make more sense!

The Maze Runner full movie 2014: Maybe the next Maze Runner will make more sense!

Like the lead of  The Maze Runner, viewers are thrown into the mix confused and disoriented. Unlike him, we never really get our bearings. Wes Ball’s film version of the popular young-adult novel by James Dashner never makes much sense. Perhaps it would make more if you have read the book, but until they start handing out free copies before the movie starts, that cannot be a requirement. The Maze Runner summary Thomas (Dylan O’Brien)…

The Maze Runner succeeds as one of Hollywood’s better young adult adaptations

In The Maze Runner full movie 2014, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien from MTV’s Teen Wolf) wakes up inside a moving freight elevator – with no memory of his former life.

The Maze Runner full movie: A new wave of sci-fi thriller

Like the book that inspired it — the first of a trilogy that includes The Maze Runner The Scorch Trials and The Maze Runner The Death Cure — The Maze Runner full movie is one heck of a cliffhanger. If the theater had been selling tickets to the next installment of the dystopian thriller (already greenlighted by 20th Century Fox, although no release date has been set), I would have bought one before I left the lobby….
