it isn funny and nice,.
Not a bad film, just has a lot in common with say hunger games or divergent. Very similar story lines, but still a good movieReviewed by Beverly June Meynell
Mix of movies
This movie is a lot like, "The Cube" but also has a fair bit of, "Lord of the Flies" and a dash of "Alien".
Overall I enjoyed it. A good mystery with a "What the heck is going on?" plot
Great for teenagers
I loved it! Intense yet interesting with something happening in every turn! Personally, I liked the book better but it was a thrilling take on James Dashners version.Reviewed by Harper Smith
Rubbish compared to the book
The acting was awful and very unconvincing that even Ian McKellan could have done a better job of acting as a young ThomasReviewed by Sebastian Hook
