When books are turned into films…

Well. Hmph. Where do I start??? I know that sometimes in films they have to make minor changes to cut down on the time of a film like when they removed the potions challenge in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone which was after the giant chess game for example. However, I have just got back from watching ‘The Scorch Trials’ at the cinema (the second in the Maze Runner series) and to say I was disappointed is an understatement. I tried to find elements of the book in the film, but it was only really the names that stayed the same. Even then, some of the characters storylines swapped. I know that people can get frustrated with people who have read the book and complain, but this really was completely different. I don’t know if I should even watch the next one when it comes out?? I’m confused because I loved the books so much! Argh!

Rant over.

This film is a 12A. This means that if you are under 12 you may go and see it with a responsible adult if your parents/guardians say that you can.
