  • It's bleak business, and as it hurries toward its explosive, expository conclusion, the film becomes nonsensical, too. show more

  • Aside from some uneven handling of the cast, Ball competently styles the action sequences throughout the film and capitalizes on his VFX expertise with pulse-pounding scenes tracking the Runners through the Maze battling Grievers. show more

  • For its first half or so, The Maze Runner tells a captivating tale of survival and weaves a potentially interesting mystery. Once its path become clear, however, you realize this is a puzzle you've worked out before. show more

    Better than average film, not sure what purpose the young female character actually served. Overall an interesting plot.
