Maze Runner: The Death Cure hit theatres after almost 3 years of the second instalment of the Maze Runner Franchise. With such a long gap, many may have even forgotten the series by now. Let’s see whether this film was worth the wait or not.
The story takes off right after where the Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials ended. After escaping from the evil Wicked Corporation, Thomas (played by Dylan O’Brien) and his friends now want to save their friend Minho and others who are still imprisoned and used as lab rats. But Wicked Corporation will do anything to find the cure for the virus and save the human race.
The movie starts with a good action sequence which really sets up high expectations. Unfortunately, they are not met as the movie moves forward. The focus of the story is mostly on Thomas’s mission to save other people from Wicked Corp. Finding the cure for the deadly virus takes a back seat and only comes forward in the end. Being the final film of the trilogy the climax of the story could have been better.
We see fewer zombies this time and more neatly designed action sequences. The story is quite predictable and doesn’t have many twist and turns. The obstacles seemed a little easy for Thomas & team which kind of brings down the fun. We also see Nathalie Emmanuel from Fast & Furious just for 2 frames in the whole movie. Why was she even there?
Maze Runner: The Death Cure is another average action thriller film. Fans may enjoy it but we’d suggest you give this one a skip.
