I saw The Maze Runner in theaters, and DESPISED it. It wasn’t a bad movie, was visually attractive and for the most part competently-made.
So what’s the problem?
I found it terribly insulting at times–the glade the characters were in was surrounded by a huge wall, but in the very same scene you see a treehouse (implying that they could have built a structure, like a ladder, to climb it)–and just bland.
And that’s only one example of the insults to the intelligence that comes to mind, and that would be bad enough though to top it with the needless, bizarre, labyrinthine secrets of WCKD is just too much.
It’s needlessly elaborate and more than a little bit pointless.
And in case you don’t feel like reading..:
