Maze runners under virtual surveillance
A
fter watching the special screening of Maze Runner in Rockwell, it's easy to get hitched with its action-filled transition and its disclosures. Leaking along, these 5 thought-provoking conclusions could help one decipher the intrigue of its after effect. 

1. A HUMAN QUESTIONING CAN FIND ITS WAY OUT.

When a person is subjected to a confinement or vanquishment, it’s a choice between finding a way out or staying for good. When the runners led by Thomas (O’Brien)  unlock the clue to a passageway that's gonna take them out of the throbbing maze from the fallen griever, that spark off the truth on the code that the runners deciphered for past 3 years. Thomas memories and dreams form part of the challenge to piece out the clue for the maze runners to solve the maze puzzle.

2. EXISTENCE OF HUMAN BEHAVIOR EXPERIMENTATION CAN BE A FREAKING TRUTH.

The maze is a top secret project on top of the giant laboratory to test the limits and range of human intelligence and behavior. It is also a testing ground of human behavior that puts  its will, choice and decisions under a watchful eye. In short, the maze runners are just a subject of an experimentation to learn and explore those behaviors.  They are sent inside the labyrinth intentionally to solve its intricacies and complications. And once they did, the project is deactivated. It’s not the mission of the characters but the mission of a project that’s in macro view accomplished.

3. EITHER WAY IS A DEAD END!

There is a familiar truth that those who try can find a way, but those won’t never find the answers. But the movie defies it. In the cliffhanging scene, the breakaway party of the runners led by Thomas (O’Brien) who braved their way inside the maze, attempting to uncover a passage out, had to endure the grievers who are the watchdogs. Then when they broke into the main control room, they were made to realize that they actually escaped the hell.  When the character of Will Poulter, the resident bully who showed up with the detector, it was clear then that they already knew the answer and sending a message that either way is a dead end. The guy is trying to save them for he knew they its all just a farce. But still he was killed in a scuffle. And they found the main control room already sprawled and littered with bodies with all the workers of the station. It was a decoy after all. They didn’t realize they were just a chess piece of the whole game of a trap.

4. FEAR CAN BE CRYPTIC CLUE CLOSER TO THE TRUTH.

Grievers are like the creepers of the myth. Their limbs, the way they skitter around and their killer tentacles but the grievers wail in this instance. When they killed a griever and returned to examine it, they found out it’s a creature of both machine and flesh, a hybrid. They retrieved from its limb a control detector that led the maze runners closer to the clue. Those who are in The Glades however are made to condition to be very afraid or fear the Grievers that explains the order only allowed selected runners. Sometimes what you fear is what can give you an answer.

5. ABSENCE OF ROMANCE COULD BE A PART OF THE PLOY

There is an indeterminable purpose why a girl was sent into the Glades and throughout the movie until their escape, the girl character seemed to weigh meaningless. But as there’s a need to inject the romance in the movie is possibly suspended because there is definitely a sequel. In the dreams, it was shown that the protagonist and the girl were holding each other. That means they had previous recognition that we will have to find out in the sequel if that develops into romance. What remains to be seen is that this could be a part of the ploy of the project. Even then, That’s something to look forward in the sequel.
