Maze Runner: The Death Cure concludes trilogy with a bang

From Issue 5


The Maze Runner trilogy has ended.  Maze Runner: The Death Cure premiered in theatres on January 26th, 2018.  This film and the previous two films were directed by Wes Ball.  Ball is not a big time director but has had success with the Maze Runner Trilogy and is making his way up the ladder.  

This movie casts Dylan O’Brien as Thomas, who is the main character in the trilogy, Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Newt,  Kaya Scodelario as Teresa,  Ki Hong Lee as Minho,  Game of Thrones’ Aiden Gillen as Janson, and many other great actors.  The film’s run time is roughly two and a half hours.  

The series started out in 2014 with The Maze Runner, where lead actor Dylan O’Brien plays Thomas, who was spawned into the maze.  The reason for them being brought into the maze is for WCKD scientist to see who has the cure.  Thomas leads a group out of the maze, ending the first movie.  The second movie, Maze Runner: Scorch Trials, basically is a part of the trilogy where Thomas and the rest of his group face new challenges such as the zombie-like cranks, which are the infected people and a regrouping point in the trilogy.  At the end, Minho gets taken by WCKD, and Teresa betrays Thomas and the group.  

This starts off the Death Cure by Thomas leading a squad to WCKD headquarters to get Minho and defeat WCKD.  My personal favorite of the trilogy is the first movie because it’s set in one setting with the mission to get out of that one setting.  Rumors have gone around wondering if there will be a fourth and fifth movie because there are five books.  This is false.  The Death Cure was the final movie to end the trilogy.  This movie is action packed and awesome to watch even if you have not seen the other movies.  It is in theaters now; go see it!
