The movie Maze Runner is based on the first book of an apocalyptic science fiction trilogy which was published in 2009. The main character of The Maze Runner is Thomas who wakes up one day in a community of boys with his memories erased. Now you can see it on Amazon Instant Video.
They are trapped on a field with a giant maze around them and they look for the solution to escape and make their way out but they do not know how and why they got there. All of the boys have their own tasks to do according to their skills and a group of boys called runners go out every day to find a path that leads them out of the maze, but it is a dangerous task to complete as the maze changes every night and it closes in the evening until the next morning and on top of this in the maze there are nasty cyborg spiders try to hunt them down. If they are trapped in the maze over the night they are lost forever. Thomas became a runner himself and he seems to be more effective than the others and he is the one in the movie who finds the way out from the maze, leading the others through the dangers and fighting the giant spiders.
The story of the movie is interesting and it is not boring to watch but there are few things i did not like in the movie. The whole movie and the story reminded me of another movie called the Cube which has basically the same story except it is set in a giant cube but also with different skilled strangers without any memories. The other thing i did not like that the movie did not really had an end and the movie makers were preparing us for the second movie already but except this the movie was exciting and was enjoyable to watch.
