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.


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


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 some sight of dead bodies, with limited detail of injury.

Disturbing images

On a TV monitor there is sight of a pile of burnt bodies, surgery on an exposed brain, and an infected man screaming and struggling against restraints.

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