Excellent but underrated film
A waste of 90 minutes of my life
At first rather annoying in its heavy emphasis on reenactments, this movie ultimately proves fascinating, simply because the complicated, highly dramatic tale it tells still almost defies belief.
Bored and dull movie, i feel stolen, this movie never should have been released ay teathers, really should be released directly yo Netflix.
This is quite possibly the best movie that I have ever seen and it should not be discounted from Academy Award nominations. The acting is spot on and the messages conveyed in the film should not be overlooked. Bravo!
Out of the series of high profile teenage dystopian books adapted for the big screen (Divergent, Hunger Games, The Giver are other such titles) over recent years, Wes Ball's Maze Runner series has remained a constantly solid and often impressive adaptation of James Dashner's story, even if the trilogy petered out slightly box office wise with the late arrival of last year's The Death Cure.Facing lengthy release delays due to it's star Dylan O'Brien's serious on-set injuries suffered during a stunt in Death Cure's production, Ball's film felt like it hit an eternity after the 2nd instalment Scorch Trials was unleashed on our cinema screen's in 2015, yet despite a long time between dystopian drinks, Death Cure offers fans of the film's a fitting, if overly long farewell that makes a solid argument for Ball's trilogy to be considered the best of the teenage dystopian bunch.For a film that's budget is relatively low for such a high-end feature, Death Cure makes the most of the tools at its disposal to become a film that's at its most thrilling and engaging when the action kicks in and from the impressive opening train chase, through to some fiery end carnage, Ball displays an impressive handling of the big-scale to give Death Cure some gravitas and spectacle that's of a high-order, even if the character beats and engagement that was found early in the first film's mysterious setting is largely lost here on its journey to tie up proceedings.Fortunate enough to keep its core cast attached for the duration of the 3 - 4 year process, most performers here could now perform their respective roles in their sleep and Death Cure struggles to do much with its large collection of goodies and baddies with O'Brien's Thomas in particular becoming a fairly bland hero as he looks to stop WCKD from kidnapping anymore of his immune friends as the Flare virus rages on around them.Character actors such as Barry Pepper, Patricia Clarkson, Aiden Gillen, a make-up clad Walton Goggins (looking like a character directly out of a Fallout game) and Giancarlo Esposito all pop up to various degrees of success, but really this is the film led and anchored by the youngsters.The biggest issue with Ball's final entry is the aforementioned runtime, at nearly 2 and a half hours, Death Cure does overstay its welcome and feels like it would've benefited greatly from a tighter edit with all things considered.Final Say - It never reached grand heights, but with The Death Cure ringing in the end to the Maze Runner series we can now safely say this trilogy provided enough thrills and excitement to justify its existence and be regarded as the top cat of its dystopian classmates.3 Walton "Ghoul" Goggins out of 5
I have a lot of respect for Wes Ball. Almost no other directors have stayed with a film series based on a young adult novel series the whole way through (Gary Ross left after the first 'Hunger Games', Neil Burger left after the first 'Divergent', etc.), and Ball certainly has a knack for directing sweeping action sequences. The problem for me is the overall script, but I'll get to that later. Dylan O'Brien overcame a life-threatening injury while working on this film, which shows his true commitment as an actor, and I have to say, he still gives the best performance and has the best character in this franchise. In fact, most of the cast does a great job with the material they're given, and they sell it the best that they can. Back to the script, though. About an hour and a half into the movie, it felt as if the inevitable conclusion was near. I was actually enjoying myself, despite the relatively repetitive nature of the story, and if it had ended where I though it would end, I may actually have given the movie a fresh review. However, the film then proceeds to go on for another hour, which wouldn't be as much of a problem if that damn repetitive nature of the script hadn't continued. I knew where every plot point was going, making the last half particularly boring for me. Although I do prefer this than to split the last film into two parts (that's a shot at you, other young adult franchises), I just can't help feeling like a good 20-30 minutes could have been trimmed off the second half of the film. If you are a fan of the franchise, this is pretty much in line with the previous two films. However, for the rest of us, I just found the runtime on this film to be much too long to warrant a positive review.
