The original group has been in "The Glade" for three years, trying to find a way to escape through the Maze that surrounds their living space. They have begun to give up hope.

In the books, the Gladers all know their names when they first come up. It doesn't take a few days to come to them. See more »
Even though it is discussed that the Gladers have tried "everything" to escape, one thing isn't that hard to try. Build a ladder. The glade is filled with trees, which means plenty of wood to build a ladder, or some other such structure against the wall, to get out. Nothing in the movie is shown to keep them from doing this, yet it isn't done. See more »

"The Maze Runner" (2014) is very well paced, directed and crafted motion picture. It's a very compelling sci-fi, which tells very interesting and involving story. Although the main structure of "The Maze Runner" will probably look familiar if you have seen more then 100 movies in your life, it's still expertly paced and done so you will be glued to your screen for the whole ride.
Overall, "The Maze Runner" is not to be missed one if you like sci-fi movies, which are good crafted and tells interesting stories. It's not revolutionary good, but it does a very good job for a one evening viewing. I will look forward for sequels.
