“Maze Runner: The Death Cure” ends the notorious “Maze Runner” trilogy.

In the final installment to the “Maze Runner” trilogy, “Maze Runner: The Death Cure,” questions are answered and friends are discovered.

This finale follows Thomas (Dylan O’Brian), Frypan (Dexter Darden) and Newt (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) on their mission to infiltrate WCKD and rescue their fellow Glader, Minho (Ki Hong Lee). Gladers are teenagers who are immune to the Flare virus, a disease that turns its victims into Cranks.

The film begins with the trio breaking into the wrong WCKD train, missing the chance to rescue Minho. Due to the failed rescue attempt, Minho is taken to the Last City, a legendary labyrinth controlled by WCKD. Thomas and his friends are later joined by Brenda (Rosa Salazar) and Jorge (Giancarlo Esposito), resistance fighters against WCKD. Meanwhile Teresa (Kaya Scodelario), former ally of Thomas, works alongside Ava Paige (Patricia Clarkson) and WCKD to find a cure to the Flare.

While filming for a stunt scene in 2016, Dylan O’Brien suffered severe head injuries leading to a delay in filming by about 11 months. After just three days of filming, production of the film had to be shut down.

The mind blowing sets and action packed scenes make up for lack of a climactic plot. Unlike its prequels, “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” doesn’t offer much of a story but rather ties up all loose ends in the film. Viewer discretion is advised for mild cursing in the dialogue and violence.

Available in theatres worldwide, “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” takes the number one spot in box office with a $23.5 million box office.
