DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Sci-Fi Thriller - This is the third and final installment of the science fiction/action series based on the popular young adult novel series, and anyone who hasn't seen the previous two films will likely be lost since this fast-paced film takes no pauses in recapping or introducing the characters and situations to newcomers. Teens and young adults are the target, and fans of the core cast will be pleased since everyone is served well with decent screen time attention. Language and violence make the film not for young kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average The Death Cure is the worst of the three Maze Runner movies, although the drop-off from The Scorch Trials isn't that steep. The Death Cure is for Maze Runner completists only and even they will probably be disappointed (and perhaps horrified) by the divergence between the book and the movie.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average ...action sequences have a tangible, accessible quality about them, which is especially true in his doozy of an opening sequence... In between are massive shootouts, elaborate hand-to-hand combat and death-defying leaps—both physically and of faith.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average But while the third chapter is certainly entertaining — and quite explosive — it has definitely lost some steam. While the final Maze Runner is a rough go at times, it nevertheless sticks the landing, with a forgivable bit of wobble.

NY Post Full Review
Above Average ...the performances actually rise above the usual empty-headed jockishness of the genre. "The Death Cure” doesn't work on every level. The movie has, for the most part, jettisoned many of the story's previous science fiction elements to focus more on action. ...a few of those fight and chase sequences are a-maze-ing.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 81 moviegoers:
TEENS: Half the males loved "Maze Runner" with another 30% rating it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. The female reviews are very similar. Just over 60% of them LOVED "MAZE RUNNER: THE DEATH CURE." Another 20% enjoyed it very much. Both the males and females had about 15% who rated it "average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Seven of the eight males loved it, as did three of the five ladies. The remaining two ladies felt it was an "average" movie.
ADULTS: About 65% of the males loved it with another 15% indicating they enjoyed it very much. A small percentage felt it was an "average" movie with less than 10% rating it "poor." Half the ladies loved it with another 30% enjoying it very much. Just 20% rated it "average."


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The motives of WCKD become clearer: Dr. Ava Paige, WCKD's executive director is close to what she believes is a cure for the disease known as The Flare, an infection that has decimated the world's population. But the cure comes by sacrificing the few young people left in the world who are apparently immune. In order to free those who have been rounded up as test subjects, including his friend Minho, Thomas must now band together with fellow survivors, old and new, and take the battle to what may be the last remaining city and the final stronghold of WCKD. He must break into the super-secure WKCD headquarters and try to bring down the organization from the inside.
