Synopsis: A group of teen boys find themselves in a mysterious field, surrounded on all sides by a seemingly inescapable maze.
For what seems like the millionth time this year, another young adult adaptation with franchise aspirations is vying for money at the box office. With an almost entirely male cast, The Maze Runner separates itself from the likes of Divergent and The Hunger Games, but still packs the same brand of dystopian high concept. It’s not at the top of its genre, but The Maze Runner is still an entertaining and intriguing action-adventure movie.
