The Maze Runner Review

There has been a deluge of YA book adaptations make their way to the big screen over the past few years. It all started with Harry Potter and then when Twilight hit gold yet again, the number of YA adaptations skyrocketed. It seemed that every couple of months there was a new one. This year alone I can think of five already. Of them all, the majority are not particularly good. As such, I didn’t have very high hopes for The Maze Runner. I simply hoped that it wouldn’t be a total disaster and I was pleasantly surprised that I really enjoyed the movie. Yes, there were some flaws and very blatant and obvious plot holes, but the movie managed to make up for it in other ways. The result was a movie that I am going to recommend to everyone who likes action science fiction (namely dystopian).
