Movie Review --- The Maze Runner
Another book that we've been listening to is The Maze Runner on audio-book. We started listening to it on our way back from Mississippi, and although we didn't finish, we were looking forward to finding out what the mystery was about these kids, stuck in a glade in the middle of a huge stone maze, and who put them there, and WHY? And what is up with the huge partially mechanical animals that come out at night and run the maze?
We went to see the movie on Tuesday, and were not disappointed. The actors that were chosen for each of the roles were great, and we finally got a clue about the ending, although they left a lot to a future movie based on the second book, The Scorch Trials. I find this to be similar to the Hunger Games in some ways, but the basis of the trial they find themselves in is very different. Now I'm looking forward to the next movie to see what the heck is going on!
I give it 4 stars! Go see it!
