What Maze gains in its depiction of history, it loses in emotional strength.

Time is a healer, and this film educates as well as entertains.

July 7, 2019 | Full Review…

"Maze" doesn't have much action until the end and even that is fairly muted and low-key compared to what might be expected from a Hollywood movie on the same topic. But that's exactly what makes "Maze" impressive.

April 25, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

"Maze" is headier than your average prison break saga; don't come expecting Jerry Bruckheimer-style theatrics.

April 12, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

When you add in the tip-top tension created by the legendary break itself, not to mention the verisimilitude of shooting in a recently decommissioned prison, you end up with a small film with an impressive impact.

March 28, 2019 | Full Review…

It's an intelligent, well-done film whose restraint can be commended. But it also operates at such a slow burn that it comes close to fizzling out completely.
