MOVIE REVIEW: MAZE RUNNER - THE SCORCH TRIALS

Monday, September 14, 2015 Posted by Kevan Lee , , , , , No comments

Thanks +ChurpChurp for the invite on #Churpremiere of Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials.

The first maze runner had a concept which blew my mind. All guys stuck in a maze which nobody knows how or when it was build, and then comes a girl. (messed up the equation nicely, all the guys panicking and shits, don't worry they got through the maze finally. Amen). So, here I am watching the second maze runner. This time they go with a fancy name "THE SCORCH TRIALS", well nothing was burning in the trials so no worries but I felt this time it was much more intense and action packed that's why it left my ass scorching on the cinema seat trying to figure out what comes next. This movie gets a 4 out of 5 stars from me and below I will tell you why:


THE GOOD


Picks up on a quick pace from the last and you will be instantly thrown into more action. The cast are now more comfortable on screen with each other, you can instantly see it on screen. The first movie they were pretty awkward. The plot this time have much more twist to it and slowly we can see the storyline is growing for the next maze runner. The visual cinematic as usual was top of the line and it was rendered nicely. The introduction to new characters always is a plus and in this it is good because it gels nicely with the character and the plot thickens! 


THE BAD

Lack of the flashback therefore you guys better remember what happen in the first maze. Aside from that, I wanted a stronger storyline on the some of the maze runner characters. All this while we only was focus on the main two characters and everyone else seems dumb with close to no opinions. We need more elaborate back story of how did they turned into flesh eating zombies.

CONCLUSION

The second maze runner was much better than the first. It felt like somehow the ideas was taken a little from the Playstation game "Last of Us" (trailer below) which I really really loved playing. Then again you if you enjoy the first maze, you should watch this maze as it much more action and fast paced.
