What is the fucking purpose of The Maze Runner? its like a watered down version of Stand by me, and Lord of the Flies?…This plot is vague, and has yet to have revealed anything substantial in the last 1hr 12seconds. That’s a long time of not knowing a damn thing. I understand this is based of a book, so if this is an accurate translation of a novel than I could assume that one could be reading many chapters and not getting any type of crucial information as to the plot. So far All I have gotten is “I am stuck” “I don’t know My name” “there is a maze” “The maze has different passages” “There are scary things in the maze, but we don’t know much about them, we’ve been here three years” How is it that a group of boys who have been stuck together three years are just know discovering something about the maze, but only after a newcomer has arrived? So no one thought to kill a creature? No? No? Anyone? The most they done is map, and the map is not finished, they still don’t understand why it changes, but mind you, It’s been three damn years. This film is so frustrating it makes me want to read the book, cause I feel like Kayne talking to Sway.
And then The end…so damn cliche “You are part of a bigger picture” “This is a test” narrative. Yeah, nope this feels like twilight to me, its film for film sake. Somethings just don’t work. Of course stay tuned for pointless sequels.
