Com­ing hard on the heels of The

Hunger Games and Di­ver­gent, this post-apoc­a­lyp­tic fan­tasy ad­ven­ture shows an im­pres­sive turn of speed in places. The set-up is in­trigu­ing, with a tribe of teenage boys be­ing held cap­tive in a grassy clear­ing by an im­pen­e­tra­ble, ever-chang­ing maze. And as Lord of the Fli­estype cliques emerge, the ten­sions be­tween am­ne­siac hero Dy­lan O’brien, ob­sti­nate bully Will Poul­ter and feisty hero­ine Kaya Scode­lario, the lone girl, keep us en­gaged. The fi­nal in­stal­ment in au­thor James Dash­ner’s best-sell­ing tril­ogy, Maze Run­ner:

The Death Cure, was due out this year, but was pushed back to early 2018 due to a se­ri­ous in­jury suf­fered by O’brien while film­ing. Dir: Wes Ball 2014, 12, 130min

Is there a way out for O’brien?
