The Maze Runner leaves questions that hopefully will be answered in The Scorch Trials

The Maze Runner is the first movie in the Maze Runner saga. It was released in theaters Sept. 19 of last year.

Thomas, a teenager, arrives in a place he’s never been. Like all the other juveniles before him, he has no memory of his previous life other than strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D. He and the boys trapped with him have to try to find their way out of a giant maze in order to escape.

Similar to Divergent and The Hunger Games with a touch of Lord of the Flies thrown in, the movie is fast-paced and well-acted. It’s not a perfect movie, but is well worth the watch, especially for anyone reading the series.

The storyline throws up a lot of questions in mid-air throughout the movie, forcing viewers to think along with Thomas. Anyone expecting all questions to be answered by the end, however,  are going to be disappointed, because the whole plot fumbles at the end. Viewers never do really get a full explanation, leaving a real need for the sequel, The Scorch Trials, which was released Friday.
