The dystopian, post-apocalyptic movies are so in, there’s a real battle on which the best movie-tie-in are the best. After the success of The Hunger Games series which will culminate in 2015: movies like Divergent and The Maze Runner became one of the successes. And with this kind of genre, there’s also a real battle between originality.
The Maze Runner has the same tone as with other dystopian themed films: dark and dangerous, having a world ruled by tyrants or people with sinister plans for the mankind.
But what differs The Maze Runner from other? Of course the source material itself.
The Maze Runner film, although quite different from the book; is a heart pounding, dangerous and enthralling movie. With exciting sequences that surely takes you to the edge of your seats. The film is directed carefully in creating agitating scenes which are totally exciting.
I love how the danger lingers within the Glade and how unsure the tone of the story has become and it’s really dreading in a good way.
The adventure really gets your nerves from start to end, and speaking of the movie’s ending, it will give you… another question mark. But that’s fine, it’s better than the book.
The Maze Runner has this specific dilemma that will be unveiled through the dénouement but not that very much information that still leaves a lot of questions which leads me to the part where after it left me the question: Did I like it or not?
There’s a war in me saying that it was good, but it wasn’t good at all due to the fact that the ending is somehow vague and although the sequences were exciting but the story itself seems nonsensical. I mean, why are they the cure? And why does the cure have to be put on trial? It doesn’t make any sense at all.
But I think that’s also the beauty of movie series, it leaves you hanging.
Still, as of the moment, I’m thinking if I liked the movie or not, and I don’t know whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing for the film.
Anyhow, it’s still worth the watch since I’m looking forward for the sequel.
