Maze Runner – The Death Cure, the final instalment in the young adult science fiction trilogy set in a post apocalyptic dystopian world is generally OK. Having already seen the first two Maze Runner films and also finding them mainly adequate, I wanted to watch The Death Cure to finish what I’d started. I was very happy to see that the films main actor Dylan O’Brien appeared to have recovered fully following the serious 2016 on-set accident that put production on hold for months.

Even though I’m not in love with this movie, I don’t regret having sat through it for reasons including, the acting isn’t terrible overall, I like the consistent pace and there are a couple of in-air stunts that had my attention. Beyond that though, I’d say that director Wes Ball’s film is an easy distraction that doesn’t ask too much of you. In which case, perhaps hit that play button – for a casual viewing. I say that whilst knowing that big fans of the books (I’ve never read them) probably wouldn’t sit down to this movie ‘casually.’ Nevertheless though, every movie has its place in everybody’s mind. From ‘this deserves my undivided attention’ to ‘I’m definitely skipping that.’ 

Happy Film Loving
