Movie Review: Maze Runner – The Death Cure
It seems ages since the last instalment of the Maze Runner movies, in fact, it’s been three years since the second movie, now Maze Runner: The Death Cure continues on from The Scorch Trials, the third movie finds Thomas leading some escaped Gladers on their final and most dangerous mission yet. To save their friends, they must break into the legendary Last City, a WCKD (World Catastrophe Killzone Department)-controlled labyrinth that may turn out to be the deadliest maze of all. Anyone who makes it out alive will get answers to the questions that the Gladers have been asking since they arrived in the maze.
It may have been three years, but this, the final instalment, starts shortly after the last movie, it opens with a rather epic action sequence that looks stunning on the big screen and it sets you up your anticipation for the rest of the movie, but sadly it does take a dip after such an adrenaline pumping start.
Not to say that the film is terrible, it isn’t, it’s a fitting end to the trilogy, I can’t really compare it to the books as I’ve still not had chance to read them, but the movie works well as a conclusion to the movies that started back in 2014 when we were first introduced to the Gladers and the mystery of why they were in their predicament and those weird creatures in the maze.
The set action sequences throughout the movie work very well, the sound is also a great accompaniment to the action with the surround sound being used to great effect for gunfire, explosions and everything else. Maze Runner The Death Cure is still very much a teen movie, but it all works for the audience that the movie is aimed at.
If you’ve seen the other two movies then is certainly a must-see to finish off the franchise, it’s an enjoyable romp, that could have possibly been a little shorter, but fun none the less.
