Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015) Rated PG-13

After escaping the maze, the runners now face new challenges in a desolate landscape. Based on the book by James Dashner. Starring Dylan O’Brien, Ki Hong Lee, and Kaya Scodelario.

This continuing story from the trilogy is less desirable than the first film. Its downfall is its writing. We spend most of the film running with little dialogue that lacks storytelling. We could care less about the characters. There are no answers to the why or how they can do things; I guess you have to read the book for those. The film is mostly made up of running, cliches, and poor decisions by the characters. You wonder how they even survived as long as they did. There is a twist, but it’s something you expect, so it’s not really a twist. Overall, this is a poor adaption of the book and sequel in the trilogy. It’s not worth the watch.
