Synopsis

Storyline:
In the epic finale to The Maze Runner Saga, Thomas leads his group of escaped Gladers on their final and most dangerous mission yet. To save their friends, they must break into the legendary last city, a WCKD controlled labyrinth that may turn out to be the deadliest maze of all. Anyone who makes it out alive will get the answers to the questions the Gladers have been asking since they first arrived in the maze. Will Thomas and the crew make it out alive? Or will Ava Paige get her way?
User Reviews: Looking through the other reviews I have to laugh at how many 1 out of 10 or 2 out of 10 reviews there are.

I refuse to believe any fans of the first two could honestly think this movie deserves anything near that low. A 1 or 2 out of 10 would be something like Troll 2, not The Death Cure.

There were definitely a few scenes where I predicted what was going to happen. Big deal, that happens in most movies these days. It’s 2018, I dare ANYONE to write a movie without a scene or two like that. There are only so many possible outcomes to a scene.

The love story frustrated me, but I don’t really hold that too much against the movie. I expected things to go one way, they didn’t. The way they did go is hard for me to relate to due to the character development, or lack thereof in this instance.

The action is awesome. The movie is long, but didn’t feel that way at all. I have to laugh at all the reviewers with the attention span of a gnat crying about the run time.
Those people are the reasons we see so many movies squashed into two hour max time limits, which severely screws up a LOT of movies.

Well, thank the impatient people that can’t go more than 2 hours without checking their social media. Maybe the all theaters need to start having intermissions so all the people with unhealthy phone addictions can get a quick fix. That way we won’t have to have all our movies limited to less than two hours by the studios, making many of them a jumbled mess with obvious material cut out?

The ending of this finale was fitting, I enjoyed the letter from Newt. It did a great job of bringing you back to their beginning in the Glade and reminding you just how far our first group has come from the minute they were shot up an elevator with no memory or identity.

So, if you enjoyed the first two I think you will enjoy this one as well. I am not sure what the 1 and 2 out of 10 reviewers were expecting, but this movie deserves at least a 7 rating IMO. It’s pretty close as far as the avg rating goes, even with the ridiculously low ratings by the impatient minds out there. I refuse to bump my rating up to imbalance those who rate movies like a child crying for a candy bar at the checkout aisle.

If a 10 dollar movie ticket is going to make you feel like you broke the bank if you don’t end up loving the movie, wait and catch it on RedBox. Don’t take it out on the movie with a ridiculously low rating.

7/10, a much better finale than Hunger Games got.
