Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The many chases and ludicrous narrow escapes offer respectable doses of adrenaline.
Fresh: Maze Runner's action, suspense and twists give movie fans of all ages a chance to embrace their inner on-the-run teenager.
Rotten: The material may be cardboard, but the actors do what they can.
Rotten: The movie may feel tonally consistent with the first, but it's also overlong and thoroughly routine.
Major Let Down
I'm going to point out that reading the book was probably my biggest mistake. This movie is VERY LOOSELY based on the book, compared to the first one which only changed a few things for screen adaption. This really was its own thing and moved too quickly despite being over 2 hours. They changed the story line and I was incredibly disappointed. I only hope "The Death Cure" isn't as bad. If you want to see this, do not read the book. So much for pre-ordering.
Ok yes, this movie is different from the book. But it was still amazing. I've told myself this: I don't care if the movie is like the book or not because it gives us two different stories to love with the same characters. And, there were still some scenes from the second book in there and even from the third book. And the director and James Dashner even said that if you didn't see it in the second movie then there's a chance you'll see it in the third. So when you go see this movie, see it with an open mind. Still amazing nonetheless.
Nothing like the book but still worth watching
