One Paragraph Review: The Maze Runner

Saw ‘The Maze Runner’ today. It’s really…well, it’s superficially nice, a bit by-the-numbers YA adaptation. It’s all ‘Hunger Games’ Lite and ‘Lord of the Flies’ knock-offy. I had a good time, though. Didn’t think too hard. It’s very clearly the first in a series. The whole thing seemed like a set up for the sequels. The ending made like zero sense and seemed rushed. Everything was passable: acting, action etc. I’ve never read the book so I don’t know how well it’s adapted, but the movie lacked depth. There is a solitary female lead that seems tacked on. 2.5 out of 5.
