THE MAZE RUNNER is a film in which a group of young people find themselves in a glade where the only escape appears to be through a dangerous maze.

Threat

There are intense scenes involving threat and attacks from large biomechanical creatures which roam the maze at night. There are also intense moments of threat involving infected characters who become aggressive and violent, and scenes of threat when characters disagree with each other.

Violence

Scenes of violence include fighting between the young people in the glade, with some heavy punches and blows. There are also attacks by the biomechanical creatures in which young people are seen being grabbed and thrown or dragged away. In one scene a character is shot, with a small patch of blood seen on their chest, and another character is hit in the chest with a makeshift spear. There is brief sight of dead bodies, although there is no detail of injury.

There is mild bad language, including uses of 'arse', 'bastards', 'son of a bitch' and 'shit'.

Distributor chose to remove or reduce moments of threat, violence and injury detail in order to achieve a 12A classification. An uncut 15 was available.
