The Maze Runner (2014)

Based off the best-selling novel, this film does an amazing job of making such a complex story come to life.

The acting, which introduces several long-time, not-too-well-known actors, is superb, and the world that is created is absolutely gorgeous. The realism of the situation comes from such a superb job of CGI and the actors truly showing the fear of the situation on their faces.

For the story plot, a teenage boy finds himself in a strange world full of other teenage boys where they are locked into a glen surrounded by tall stone walls. Going past the walls almost certifies death. And then, in a unexpected event, a girl shows up and suddenly everything that the boys knew about this strange place completely changes.

I definitely recommend reading the book first for the finer details, but this film does an amazing job of telling a story without big gaps of plot.

My Rating: ★★★★★
