“Maze Runner” Finale: “The Death Cure” Review

As the third installment of “The Maze Runner” series based off the book by James Dashner, “The Death Cure” is nothing short of an enticing action movie. With incredible effects and a dramatic plot, this film was set to satisfy fans of this popular dystopian series.

The movie takes place shortly after “The Scorch Trials,” the sequel to the original movie, “The Maze Runner.” The main character, Thomas, leads his group of escaped Gladers to save their friends from the World In Catastrophe: Killzone Experiment Department (WCKD), a corporation which acts as the overall antagonizers of the series. Together, they fight the “Flare” plague and break into the Last City in seek of a forever escape from WCKD.

Despite slight cliches noticeable in some scenes, “The Death Cure” was overall an epic finale to the series. It was filmed, casted and depicted in a very accurate and appropriate fashion in comparison to the book. However, some scenes were somewhat predictable— whether that was meant to be purposeful or not. While some scenes were exciting and unexpected, the majority of the plot had the same basic idea as a typical action film. Negativity aside, “The Maze Runner” series could not have had a more conclusive and satisfying finale. I would rate this film as a 7 out of 10.
