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
As director Wes Ball builds the eeriness around the complex entrapment of a community of boys living a Lord Of The Flies type existence, he is ably aided by imaginative and well-executed production design and special effects.
Generally redeemed by feature first-timer Wes Ball's forthright action sequences.
Whither post-apocalyptic young adult sci-fi? With two movies to go, Hunger Games already feels overly familiar.
Trying desperately to focus on the themes of free will, responsibility and death (several major characters have a gruesome fate), all I could think about was cheap vodka.
In the annals of dystopian young-adult franchises, The Maze Runner is less than totes amazeballs.
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.
