REVIEW: Maze Runner: The Death Cure is a Satisfying Ending to the SeriesJanuary 26, 2018 - Author: admin - No Comments
Action packed from start to finish, Maze Runner: The Death Cure is a satisfying ending to the Maze Runner saga. In The Death Cure, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his friends head to the Last City to stop
WCKD and save their friend Minho (Ki Hong Lee). Nothing can ever be easy for the Gladers as they encounter a number of obstacles including Cranks (human zombies) and go up against their former friend, Teresa (Kaya Scodelario).
O’Brien, Scodelario, Will Poulter, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Lee, Rosa Salazar, and Dexter Darden all return for the
final film. The best scenes happen when O’Brien, Brodie-Sangster, and Poulter team up while Scodelario’s turn as a potential enemy will make you want to yell at the screen. Poulter is a nice return to the series as his and Thomas’ relationship was one very much missing from The Scorch Trials. For Katherine McNamara fans, she is featured very briefly, so if you are there to see her in the movie, wait until it comes out on DVD.
The movie does well to stick to the tune of the overall series, based on the book series by James Dashner,and the stunts and special effects are the two of the highlights of The Death Cure. A huge problem for the film is the length. Running at 2 hours and 20 minutes there were a number of scenes that could have been left out and the story would have remained.
As with almost all book to film adaptations, there are a few differences so do not go in expecting to see a perfect
take. Director Wes Ball does take a few liberties in the movie, like how the movie comes to an end, but the outcome is strong. Maze Runner: The Death Cure is definitely worth seeing in the theaters this weekend. Fans of the series won’t be disappointed as the movie is a great way to end Thomas’ story.
