The Maze Runner: another trilogy to anticipate (Review)

The Maze Runner is based on the best selling novel by James Dashner with the same title. It is the first of the post-apolyptic trilogy series that caters to young adult movie goers.The movie revolves to the story of young boys with no memories, living in an enclosed space called Glade which is surrounded by walls that encompass a maze. They are trying their best to survive among the Grievers while desperately crying for help to get out of the maze.

When Thomas wakes up trapped in a massive maze with a group of other boys, he has no memory of the outside world other than strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D. Only by piecing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a way to escape.

Some may say that this has a resemblance to Hunger Games. In a sense, yes it does, for it follows the same mood as any science fiction book portrays. I was more excited to watch The Maze Runner because of the walls. It reminded me of the walls in the anime, Shingeki no Kyojin. Though the story is entirely different, the walls and survival of the fittest plot made my imagination jump for excitement.

Overall, the movie was great and crafty. The story was laid out creatively that it leaves a lot of room for questions, in which you can only find the answers if you read the three books or wait for the next two movies. The movie triggered my imagination and urge to read all three books. The Maze Runner is a good addition to the list of movies to be anticipated in the succeeding years.

The Maze Runner is already shown in all theaters as of yesterday. Watch it with your friends and be ready to get your adrenaline pumped.
