The Maze Runner (2014)
Critic Consensus: With strong acting, a solid premise, and a refreshingly dark approach to its dystopian setting, The Maze Runner stands out from the crowded field of YA sci-fi adventures.

Critic Reviews for The Maze Runner
Teenagers are getting it in the neck again, in the latest dystopian Young Adult literary sensation to get the Hollywood treatment.
I think I have a touch of apocalepsy -- excessive sleepiness caused by prolonged exposure to three- and four-part series in which adolescents rebel against oppressive governments represented by esteemed actors.
Is the true enemy this all-testosterone Lord of the Flies clan? Nah, faulting your fellow kids is so 1950s. For the millennials, adults gotta be to blame
Having not read the book, I was hoping for a more satisfying payoff than the one I got. Then again, maybe the filmmakers are saving the answers for the sequel.
Audience Reviews for The Maze Runner
All of these youth franchise efforts start to blend together to me. Young antihero. Fight against the oppressive powers that be. As cookie cutter as some of the worst of the westerns used to be. If yer gonna do the genre couldn't ya at least have more'n one pitch? This outing offers nada fresh. Yawn.
A bunch of running around to what purpose? And why does everything have to be so damned dark!
Totally fine. Is that enough to say about this movie? Yes. Yes it is.
