We had the chance to catch the pre-screening of The Death Cure before it hits theaters on January 26th. Here are some spoiler free thoughts about the conclusion of the Maze Runner Series.
Death Cure increased the action in the last installment. With hiring stunt coordinator, Marius Botha (Mad Max: Fury Road, Ghost in the Shell, Suicide Squad and the upcoming X-Men Dark Phoenix film), the action sequences had viewers on the edge of their seat in the opening scene and applauding with excitement as the film progressed. The two hour and twenty-three minute film seemed to fly by with the perfect combination of action and storyline. One scene that had fans anxious the most was the scene where Thomas (Dylan O’Brien), Newt (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), Frypan (Dexter Darden), Jorge (Giancarlo Esposito) and Brenda (Rosa Salazar) were in the “Cranks Tunnel.”
Book Lovers’ Approve
Scorch Trials was a far cry from the novel from which the series is based. Even though there are some minor changes in the Death Cure film, some changes adapted were more satisfying than the novel itself. Death Cure, out of three film installments, follows the hit novel series closely which earned Death Cure “the book lover” thumbs up of approval. Also, as a quick caution (we are not going to spoil any fans here) to book and film fans alike, be prepared to pack some tissues or grab a lot of napkins from concessions.
