Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) – Movie Review

Maze Runner: The Death Cure is the science fiction action film which is the third and most probably the last installment in the Maze Runner film saga. The film is directed by Wes Ball and written by T.S. Nowlin, based on the novel written by James Dashner.

The film picks up right where it left in the Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015); Thomas (Dylan O’Brien), Newt (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), and Fry (Dexter Darden) are the last remaining “Gladers” who are immune to the Flare virus that infected the whole world. The three goes on a mission to rescue their immune Glader friend Minho who was captured earlier by the menacing organization WCKD for running tests against the virus. Now to save their friend they must break into WCKD’s fully armored operation base named “Last City”.

The film is the honest conclusion to the Maze Runner franchise with the gripping storyline. It is not the best film in the franchise but not the bad as well. The film tries to expand its universe and gives more depth and arc to its characters. The screenplay and the direction are pretty impressive and decent visuals effects on top of it makes it more delicious. The film is entertaining and keeps the audience invested with some really cool action sequences. Performances are apt. Despite being the concluding chapter, the film doesn’t feel that epic and grand. The over-powered WCKD organization from last two installments feels useless and stands no chance against invincible protagonists.

Verdict : The film is entertaining and can be a good time this weekend.

Rating : 3.6/5
