My review for The Maze Runner
Watched this movie with the hubby last night. I'm glad I did too. I think it was better than The Maze Runner.
The first movie, The Maze Runner, was exciting and kind of mind-bending. Those kids that survived the maze thought they would be free one day. This movie shows you what that freedom actually is. See, and that is the thing... this movie was just more relatable and realistic. You could see if we had a dystopian society it might be a lot like what this movie portrayed it to be, where the first movie was more far-fetched and not something anyone would ever consider a possible reality. It helped there was more action, excitement, and jaw-dropping moments in this one.
I still haven't read the books though so cannot make any comparisons to the two. I aim to read them though. One day anyways.
Definitely a great set of movies so far. Can't wait to see if they come out with more.
