Dylan O’Brien, Thomas Brodie-Sanders, Will Poulter, Ki Hong Lee and others came together one last time to create the third and final addition to the Maze Runner trilogy: The Death Cure. This story follows Thomas (O’Brien) and his group of Gladers as they embark on a rescue mission to save their friend Minho (Lee), who had been taken by WCKD and was being tested on in their medical labs.

The opening scene of this movie conveyed a very Mad Max; Fury Road type of feeling, and I’m not complaining about it. That was a good movie. The rest of The Death Cure clearly showed a sort of dystopian world where society as we know it crumbles.

The best part of the movie was the set design. The city was shown as very futuristic and advanced while being closed off from the rest of the world which was full of the outcasts and cranks, as they refer to them. The setting was portrayed extremely well.

In addition to clearly enjoying the set design, I also found that the movie itself was really good. I had seen Maze Runner when the first movie came out in 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed it. I never got a chance to see The Scorch Trials (the second movie in the series) and I never read the books, so in the beginning of the Death Cure I was a little confused. That was my own fault, though. I was able to vaguely understand what had happened previously from the movie and the aid of my friends who had seen the Scorch Trials.

In the end, I greatly enjoyed this movie and would definitely recommend it to a friend.
