Maze Runner Quick Review

Upside: Excellent cast, excellent adaptation, excellent effects. While it was abbreviated a bit, I felt they stayed largely close to the book. Very enjoyable two hours.

Downside: I really missed the original language and voice that Dashner so expertly added to the book. Instead, Hollywood chose to pepper the movie with common curses. It wasn’t necessary and I felt it took away from the original awesomeness of TheGlade.

Final Pronouncement: GO!! Fantastic movie. Fantastic book. Watch or read in any order. I can’t wait to go back and see it at IMAX.

Cheers Mr. Dashner! You’ve earned this!
