The Maze Runner Movie Review

Ratings:4/5 Review By: Gavin Rasquinha Site: Times Of India (TOI)

Ultimately, the plot provokes you to think if ‘being safe to suffer’ is better than ‘risking your life to look beyond the obvious’. It also convinces you to move out of your comfort zone and face your fear. The climax might seem underwhelming for some but the build-up is a sure-shot winner. Deserves a sequel…

If dystopian post-apocalyptic films are your thing, swing by at your nearest cinema this weekend. It is however not a film meant for kids. The film doesn’t flinch when killing little children and though the cyborg spiders can tend to look meh, I am not quite sure your little ones are going to enjoy this one. So it is three out of five stars for The Maze Runner, which I hope will also be part of a trilogy much like the book.

The tussles for leadership are without menace, and the conflicts arise from confusion rather than showmanship. Readers of the book have praised the film for being better than it, and there can be few greater compliments. However, Ball’s biggest achievement is letting us see the children at the heart of this coming-of-age story.

  1. THE MAZE RUNNER [3.5/5]
    "A propulsive blockbuster. Cops out at the end, but riveting stuff."
    (2D IMAX)
    YA fantasy genre clichés aren’t too hard to find in Wes Balls’ ‘The Maze Runner’, an adaptation of the first installment of James Dashner’s trilogy of novels. It sets up a dystopian world with an air of strangeness that has rules of its own, where one bunch of people control the other bunch in what is some sort of an experiment/operation; the protagonist gets thrown into the world but reacts differently than others who just seem to have conformed to the rules… you know the drill. What sets ‘The Maze Runner’ apart from the usual fair is the assured and confident way in which it’s been handled. It unravels at a frenetic, even pace; with the twists coming in thick and fast; and, for a change, there’s a feeling of the twists building up to something big in a thematic sense instead of being mere plot points. As the plot moves along, the film compulsively draws us in; and instead of throwing questions at us, it compels us to ask questions like, say, who is controlling the activity inside the maze or what their objective is. And like a deftly realized suspense thriller, it just as expertly holds back its answers, only revealing what is necessary to keep us hooked without giving away the whole thing. As a result, although ‘The Maze Runner’ is standard genre fare, it never feels generic. The action scenes carry a charge and urgency, and unlike most blockbusters these days that rely on CGI-generated grandeur, the action here feels grippingly visceral. The only niggle I have is that instead of providing a fully realized finale, the film goes for a deliberately loose ending in order to set up the stage for the sequel. As a result, although there are abundant hints of there being some sort of a political angle – a “statement” being made – to the proceedings, the film as a unified whole feels little else but an engaging genre fare. The feeling of having seen an incomplete film becomes particularly problematic here since what feels missing here isn’t just the story (in a “what happens next” sense), but the entire thematic concern of the film itself. Thoroughly gripping stuff nonetheless.
