Okay, I have a confession. I didn’t read the books this time. I usually do, but I just couldn’t get into this one. So, after a lot of deliberating, I decided to watch the movie anyway. I mean, I literally waited until the day before I could see The Scorch Trials before watching The Maze Runner.
Anyway, before you gather James Dashner and all the fans of the book, remember that this blog is run by a lame-o who sometimes makes poor decisions. That being said, I hope to possibly go back and try reading the books again. After all, I have my own copy of The Maze Runner, gathering dust on one of my bookshelves.
And finally…on to the review:
Since I didn’t read the books, I don’t really have much to compare the movie to. See my dilemma? But I think I can manage.
Full of action and a great cast, The Maze Runner caught my attention immediately. Though some part of me doesn’t think it was that exciting all-in-all, there is another part of me that absolutely adored it. And kind of wants to watch it again. Right now.
And if you’re not into watching your favorite books be diluted by the big screen (I’m the same way, but again, I didn’t read these books, so it’s no problem for me), perhaps you’ll watch it just to see Dylan O’Brien. He’s quite the looker, eh?
I can’t really think of anything I didn’t like about this movie. I mean, the acting was great. The story was great.
So, yeah. The end.
