A movie review of “The Maze Runner,” a smart and fast-paced rendering of James Dashner’s 2009 young-adult best-seller set in a dystopian future. The young cast and set design are its greatest strengths. It got three stars out of four.
Rare is the movie based on a best-seller that is vastly superior to the book that inspired it. “The Maze Runner” is just such a rarity.
