I would like to recommend "The Maze Runner." I wanted to compare it to the 1963 movie "The Great Escape." But I can't. It's like "The Great Escape," but where's the fun. A group of kids are stuck in the middle of nowhere which is surrounded by a giant maze. There are maze runner in the movie who run into the maze to try to find a way out, but the been blcoed by changing of the mazes and deady creatures which a cross between a spider and a scropions.the only thing is missing is the fun. There is no fun in the movie. All I saw is teen angust and that is fun for me.

This is another dystopian book-turned-movie production. The storyline is fairly familiar: group of teenagers trapped in a dangerous situation and they need to defeat the antagonist and save the world as they know it.

The book was fairly good, but unfortunately I can't say the same for the movie. The action starts right away from the moment you meet the main character, Thomas. The first half of the movie progresses at a steady pace, but then there is one action scene where everything ends up turned upside-down (figuratively) and then its downhill from there. The plot races through the rest of the movie and there are some cliche moments and then some confusing ones as well. The ending feels very rushed and the characters (as well as viewers) are thrown into confusion once more. The movie ends with a cliff hanger and we must hang on and hope for Part 2. There were also some extremely important elements pertaining to the book plot that were left out of the movie. I will be interested to see how the second movie will make up for this lack.

This movie is also extremely intense and I would not recommend it for children under 13 or 14.
