As a long time lover of all things Sci-Fi, and an educated student of film and videography appreciation and production arts, this story, even though drawing heavily from the classic Lord of the Flies, is one of the more original I've had the pleasure of viewing in the last decade and highly recommend viewing it, and if you're builder of personal favorite films library, then you've got my strong recommendation to purchase this adventure for review as it's got that great quality about it. It's an exciting look into a possible future and includes darn good acting from aspiring young adult stars who've made a name for themselves recently in this film series and other great stories in different genres also available here at the Play Store. One of the great aspects about a story like this is it can be viewed as a weekend afternoon flick, as a way to enjoy an action packed and emotion driven movie with the family as, other than the very mild gore, is totally kid-appropriate, or even as late night lights low/sound high date movie that will have your date jumping into your embrace more than a few times throughout. Those with critics eyes will find very few and minor flaws. Worth every penny
The movie honestly feels like a down graded version of hunger games. I didn't read the books. The first 30 minutes of the film are very choppy and confusing. A random girl shows up about 50% of the way into the movie (let's be real of a single teen girl showed up around a pack of teen boys, they'd be ALL OVER HER). Some of the blood special effects looked like red acrylic paint too :/ the biology isn't even plausible for the plot
I red the the book. The book is better.in the book the maze is under ground.the saviors take them n away in a bus not a helicopter. Frypan was harry and survived. Gally was beaing mined controled by WICKED.and WICKED is spelled WICKED NOT WCKID.gally was not stung he was f forest to kill chuck by WICKED .Gally had a nife not a gun. Gally was not killed but he was beaten up by Thomas for killing chuck. Taresa and Thomas had a talapathic power thingy where thay could talk to each other in there minds. Theres much more. Uuuuuuggggg sorry if u don't like this kind of thing .The only thing I would like to change is the talapathic thingy with taresa and Thomas.
