This long-awaited conclusion to the Maze Runner saga had its share of setbacks, most notably, Dylan O’Brien’s terrifying accident on-set, that shut down production indefinitely. That was two years ago.
Thankfully, O’Brien returned after a lengthy recovery, and relieved fans finally got to see the action-packed finale.
I am a big fan of the books, and like others, I was a little disappointed with the film adaptations. That said, I did like the first one quite a bit and I really enjoyed this one. “The Scorch Trials”? Meh… It was okay.
But back to “The Death Cure”, that is what we’re here for right?
Firstly, there is a TON of action! No wonder he hurt himself doing a dangerous stunt. It’s a miracle no one else was seriously hurt because right out of the gate, this movie is one high-velocity action sequence after the next. One thing I can guarantee, is that you will not be bored watching this movie.
I also thought the cast was excellent. They’ve really grown since the first film and it shows. The veteran actors like Aidan Gillen were fantastic too, though I could not stop thinking of “Janson” as “Little Finger” lol. I fear he will always be known for that no matter what roles he takes on. Sorry dude!
Technically, the film was executed well with excellent stunts, special effects, and dramatic sets. The “Last City” was pretty spectacular.
I enjoyed this movie! It was fun and I felt like it was a strong finish to the trilogy. I would almost say it is the best of the franchise save for the fact that I really love the concept of the first one. Anyway, it’s worth a trip to the theater for sure!
