The Maze Runner is okay
5 second plot: Thomas wakes up in a place surrounded by a giant maze. There are others just like him. All young guys. And they can't remember anything, except for their names. They've been trying to find a way out for many years now. All they know is that you don't want to get stuck in the maze when the door closes.
5 second review: This maze feels real. The sound effects make it even feel alive. The creatures are good, but they're all the same. That's a shame. The performances are solid. The story is okay, but it could have been great. It feels a bit like something's missing. But that missing part is probably situated somewhere in the follow-up movie(s).
