PG-13 | | Action, Mystery, Sci-Fi
Thomas is deposited in a community of boys after his memory is erased, soon learning they're all trapped in a maze that will require him to join forces with fellow "runners" for a shot at escape.
Thomas Brodie-Sangster's favorite scene to film was the scene where he and Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) are sitting by the log and talking about the maze because he said that it wasn't a big scene, it was relaxed
Hey! Hey! Help me!
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. However, they told Thomas, everything he can think of has been tried. He's been there 5 days, some of those guys been there 3 years, maybe even longer.
After initially receiving a '15' rating, Fox cut 43 seconds of violence, threat and injury detail from the UK version to earn a less restrictive '12A' rating for the cinema release. This same cut version was later released on DVD and Blu-ray with a '12' rating, although an uncut Steelbook Blu-ray was given a limited release with a '15' rating.
