“The Maze Runner” or “Lost (TV Show) in a Maze”- my fuckin review

Here is my review for “The Maze Runner“. Okay I kinda wanted to see this movie and kinda didn’t. So I finally watched it and honestly I enjoyed it. The film starts off and you don’t know what the fuck is going on. This guy named Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) is being sent up in an elevator to the middle of this field that is also in the middle of a gigantic maze. There are a shit load of other boys living/trapped there and trying to survive. It’s basically the who’s who of young new Hollywood (Aml AmeenKi Hong LeeThomas Brodie-SangsterWill Poulter, etc). There Thomas finds out that they all are trapped and some of them are trying to map the maze so they can find a way out. They are Maze Runners. None of the boys can remember who they really are or how they got there. It really is a mystery and feels a lot like the TV Show “Lost” at times. Eventually scary shit pops off and there are spider like creatures in the maze and girl is sent up the elevator named Teresa (Kaya Scodelario). She is the only girl there. Shit hits the fan and some of the boys don’t want to leave because they are scared shitless. It gets a little Lord of the Flies. In the end all this crazy shit happens in the maze that I don’t want to spoil. It answers a few things, but really just makes you go WHAT THE FUCK! Honestly I can’t wait for the sequel now “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials“. So yeah I really enjoyed watching this movie more than I thought I would. It was interesting, entertaining and they didn’t feed you the answers. Honestly you still don’t know what’s going on at the end of the movie, which I loved. I’m not a huge fan of the newer dystopian/future films that have been coming out lately. They all seem so similar, which is why I didn’t rush out to see this one. Plus there are so many lately (InsurgentDivergentThe Hunger Games movies, The GiverOblivion, Elysium). This film is more fun to me and keeps you guessing about shit and even in the end you are still trying to figure out the answers. I do love films where the characters are trapped and have no way out. Also the end is great.  So if you love dystopian teens, mazes, spiders demons, Lost the TV Show, twists and turns, and not everything summed up in the end then this is the movie for you. I dug it and it was fun to watch. My favorite out of this new batch of Dystopian films. Check it out, it’s a fun film.
