Maze Runner trilogy has to come to an end with the release of their third installment titled ‘The Death Cure’ in the beginning of 2018. Adapted from a novel created by James Dashner, the plot line of this movie has captured the hearts of many fans including the readers of the novel. The series also help to launch Dylan O’Brien‘s career into box office movies after he starred in TV series “Teen Wolf” and other minor roles on previous films. The story centers around Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) who was trapped with other teenagers on a huge maze. It was not without a cause that these teenagers were collected in one place. They were the lab rats for a worldwide organization to find the cure or anti-virus for the deathly disease that has been spread to the world. The third movie picked up where the second one left. The mission this time was to safe Minho (Ki Hong Lee) who was captured by WCKD to be tested as an anti-virus. Thomas alongside with Newt (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), Brenda (Rosa Salazar) and those who were left worked together to save Minho from the maze that was set by WCKD.
Directed by Wes Ball, who also directed all the franchise of Maze Runner, ‘The Death Cure’ offers the similar formula with the last two films. The sci-fi movie lacks the strength in building the conflict, at least not as good as the first movie. Even so, the struggle to fight the tyrant is still worth to watch. Especially, if you have seen both previous films and are a huge fan of Dylan or the novel series. You could see how this group of fearless teenagers could turn the organization upside down with their relentless effort. “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” is now playing on theaters across Indonesia. We strongly suggest you to watch the firs two installment before watching this third and last series of Maze Runner.
