The Maze Runner

I can only imagine where one would get the funding to build the titular Maze.

A colony of men all suffering amnesia of their lives before, now live in the center of a giant, ever changing maze that also happens to be the home of some monsters. Having no information given to the audience at the beginning makes this whole thing interesting as the questions of "How?" and "Why?" are slowly answered in this pretty action packed and exciting film. The visuals, music and majority of the acting are all good though some bits are a bit too dark, lighting wise (possibly intentionally), to see what's going on (Or maybe my eyes are getting bad lol).

What sort of douche builds a giant maze anyway?

Normally this is where I put all the negatives, but apart from the ending lending itself to being a but of a "Huh?" reaction, it's a pretty solid film and one I definitely can recommend. Just be aware that it lends itself heavily to having a part two at some point. I give the Maze Runner three and a half names on the wall out of five and would definitely watch it again. Don't really want to say more than that to let you experience it for yourselves.
