Poster from The Maze Runner Film Official Facebook Page -

So we went to the cinema with my family, dragged by my niece to watch this book-based film - The Maze Runner. It's just that her teacher made them believe it was a very good film. Let's see with my review if it really is.

The story start with a guy inside a running elevator. Then upon reaching the top, he was crowded with dozen other guys. The film will make you think "what's really happening here"... even the character doesn't know what he is doing there . . . of course! It makes it more thrilling. I know from the title itself, It's about maze and the first time i heard about this film coming, I didn't bother to get hooked. All i know is it's based from a novel of the same title.

I have no idea what's the story is all about. I just get along to watch and see it for myself.

And so, there's a maze. Their goal is to get out of the maze to find the truth because all of them were brainwashed and doesn't know why they're there. I was expecting there would be different booby traps in the maze but what was put there are spider-like chasing creatures. And added to that, is moving walls at specific period and that's it. The thrill factor is insufficient. There's a lot of talks in the film than make you jump out of your seat.

Also, not sure why there's Ellen DeGeneres in Thomas dreams...

Moreover, It will leave you completely thinking what's the virus about. Is it the same virus stung by the spider-like chasing creatures? What happens if the virus was left to you un-medicated?

My rating of this film: 3.5 / 5.0
