About:Young hero Thomas embarks on a mission to find a cure for a deadly disease known as the "Flare".
The Death Cure being the third in the Maze Runner series follows Thomas and him trying to save Minho throughout this film. Later after finding out that Newt has the "Flare" Thomas tries to find a way to save him as well making this film full of action and suspense. However after being a big fan of this book by James Dashner and being really excited by the trailer and the movie itself I was both happily surprised and disappointed with this film.
I did love this film because of the way that you could see what was happening to Minoh within "Wicked" and how they were willing to do anything to make a cure for the "Flare" no matter what the costs were. As well as this you got to see how people with the "flare" were from the very beginning to when they become too far past the gone to save and the struggles that go on not only within but physically. You find this out from people who are within the Wicked complex in which they are experimenting but more than that you see it with Newt himself throughout the film. I also really enjoyed how at the beginning of the film they went straight into the movie and didn't try to recap the others for those who hadn't seen any of the series before meaning that as soon as the movie started the action started and you could see where they are after the first two movies. This movie had loads of action from the beginning as well which made this a very enjoyable watch and one that kept the audience wondering what was going to happen next. I also did cry at the ending when you get to hear the letter that Newt writes to Thomas after they get to the safe haven which gave the right amount of emotion for the death of a vital character (Sorry for the spoiler)!
However, I did not like how they changed so much from the book such as the city itself which was changed so much that you didn't get the right feelings of unease that you should have as well as the camp for the Cranks guarded by people who are immune. As a result of this it made the death of Newt one that didn't have as much emotion at the time where as in the book it had a lot more emotion and you understand the sacrifice that he has made. As well as this they killed off another character that did not need to die and essentially chose to which made no sense in my opinion.
Overall, this was a great way to end the series of the Maze Runner and I already can't wait to see it again. This is great for people who love a good action movie and sci-fi fans everywhere. I feel I would have rated this higher if I hadn't read the books beforehand which altered my perception of the film more than it should have.
My Rating: 3/5
