My Thoughts

I give the Maze Runner: The Death Cure Blu-ray a B.

If you haven’t seen the other two films, I would definitely watch them first before watching this one.  I think you would be more invested in the characters and storyline if you do so.  I for one have never read the books or watched the other two films and this movie really doesn’t explain what is going on.  It goes right into the story.

This film does take place during a post-apocalyptic time period.  I love the idea of the end of the world and fighting to survive but, I was a little disappointed to find out that “zombies” were the life-threatening issue.  I do love zombies but I was hoping for something different (as zombies in films and TV are everywhere nowadays) and mind-blowing.

The action in this film is on point and my favorite part of this film is a letter that Thomas (played by Dylan O’Brien) reads from Newt (played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster) after his (Newt) passing.   You will definitely shed a tear or maybe two after watching that scene.  I also like the tribute that was built and everyone carved the name of a person they had lost.

Catch Maze Runner: The Death Cure out on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, & Digital Tuesday, April 24th!
