Not only was The Maze Runner a hit at the box office, but it also earned itself some extremely positive reviews, including one from our own Isaac Feldberg, who called it “dark, dangerous and uncommonly thrilling.” Personally, I have yet to check the film out, but after hearing all the positive buzz over the past few months, you can bet that I’m eager to pick up the Blu-Ray.
Check out the plot summary for The Maze Runner below, and then head on down to the comments and let us know if you’ll be purchasing it once it lands on store shelves.
When Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) wakes up trapped in a massive maze with a group of other boys, he has no memory of the outside world other than strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D. Only by piecing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a way to escape.
