He emerges into a world of about 60 teen boys who have learned to survive in a completely enclosed environment, subsisting on their own agriculture and supplies. A new boy arrives every 30 days. The original group has been in “The Glade” for three years, trying to find a way to escape through the Maze that surrounds their living space. They have begun to give up hope.

There are some great, fast-paced action scenes, particularly those involving the nightmarish Grievers who plague the boys.

Review The Maze Runner :
The Maze Runner, Skewed and Reviewed
Skewed and Reviewed's Sasha Glenn gives thoughts on The Maze Runner and how it compares to The Hunger Games over at sknr.net.
The Maze Runner is 20th Century Fox's attempt at the current trend in Hollywood to cash in on Young Adult-themed science fiction in a dystopian setting. Coming off the heels of hits like The Hunger Games and Divergent, The Maze Runner is the first story in the trilogy of novels by James Dashner. As such, I thought I would use this review space to compare this first film in the trilogy to another. The Maze Runner versus The Hunger Games (self-titled, not Catching Fire) sorry Divergent, I haven't seen you.
DIRECTORS The Maze Runner's Wes Ball vs. The Hunger Games' Garry Ross
The Maze Runner is Wes Balls first major motion picture, but you wouldn't know it because the visuals and pacing are fantastic.
Garry Ross, on the other hand, directed both Pleasantville and Seabiscuit prior to The Hunger Games. Both great movies, however this slow thoughtful style I feel was not the best choice for the action-paced-with-thought story of the hunger games. Guess that's why he was replaced for Catching Fire, which is a superior film.
Advantage: The Maze Runner
