I saw the trailer for The Maze Runner last week when I was watching The Equalizer. It looked good. Sort of almost Hunger Games meets a Labyrinth. So of course I was interested in seeing it. First night it came out I was there, with my ticket and my date and in we went to see it. I was not disappointed. (Also got to see the new trailer for Mocking Jay part I which was awesome)
The movie surrounds a group of boys (sorry girls are representation in this movie is minimal till the very end) who have all been dropped off in the glade, a lush green center of a dangerous maze. Each person remembers nothing of their life outside the maze apart from their name and together they have formed a society to govern themselves. For three years they've been sending runners out into the maze trying to map it and find a way out.
I enjoyed the interaction of the characters, I cried over the lost of some and a surprising twist at the end proves that this might be a series of movie that will keep us enthralled for the next couple of years. More if, as they've done with a lot of these trilogies is split the final movie into two. Which honestly annoys me, a trilogy in four parts.
