This past Friday, I went to see “The Maze Runner” in theaters as it first came out.
Having read all the books in James Dashner’s series, I was extremely excited to go see the film, compare it to the book and see how things matched up.
I’m usually pretty hard to please with film adaptations of books, but this time — I wasn’t disappointed. Dylan O’Brien played the perfect Thomas, all the young actors were incredible, and I thought the film generally stayed quite true to the book.
Be forewarned – there may be spoilers ahead for those who haven’t seen the film or read the book.
