Reel Talk: Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

by Dante Morehead

Synopsis: After having escaped the Maze, the Gladers now face a new set of challenges on the open roads of a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles.

Review:  The second installment of this trilogy didn't disappoint ,as sometimes sequels tend to do. It picks up where  the previous film left off and comes out guns blazing with fast paced chase scenes and high action yet the pacing is not too overwhelming, I'm looking at you Michael bay! We find out more about why the antagonist are kidnapping and testing children as a means of survival in a post apocalyptic world. There's plot, drama, character development, and of course violent, infected zombies! The ending had a feel reminiscent of The Hunger Games but with a science fiction edge to it. You don't have to know too much about the books to understand the second movie , thanks to a great exposition of the film's main characters! (B+)
