If this grossly tedious and nearly unwatchable film is meant to be an epic finale to the popular young adult series, it fails on all accounts.

When the highest praise you can give a trilogy is "At least they finished it," then you probably haven't achieved your goals.

I'll be honest: I'm pretty sure half of what I think I remember from Maze Runner 2: The Scorch Trials might actually [have been] pieces of the last two Divergent movies.

On the surface, this story is a simple good guys versus bad guys tale and...well...there isn't much beneath the surface to be honest.

When it comes to delivering closure, there's much room for improvement by the time the story is done.

What you have here is a movie that is mostly good, with top-notch action not expected from a series on its third entry. It simply shouldn't be this inventive.

A movie "made for the fans," but also a demonstration of why that ethos doesn't make for good cinema.

It should have been two hours long. If you're going to have a two and a half hour-long movie, have compelling characters.

a masterwork of mediocrity

The Death Cure utterly fails to do anything surprising or spectacular that hadn't previously been laid out. It's a dead-end maze of questions the filmmakers themselves seem to be lost inside.
January 25, 2018
For sure, Death Cure reaches further than its grasp in a vain attempt to close the story on a meaningful note, but who can really blame this gaggle of murder-teens for trying to pretend like all the murdering they did meant something?
January 26, 2018
This opening sequence is actually very thrilling and the best action sequence in the whole franchise. Unfortunately, the rest of movie falls flat with regard to character development, screenplay and proper exposition.

January 25, 2018
Fans of the dystopian franchise will find a satisfying conclusion to the whole endeavour but [Dylan] O'Brien as determined rebel leader Thomas is as wooden as ever and Kaya Scodelario, as turncoat rebel Teresa, nearly overdoes him in that regard.

The Maze Runner trilogy concludes with The Death Cure, which goes through many of the same motions as the first film and preceding sequel The Scorch Trials.

At this point, only a handful of hardcore fans will have good reason to run back into the maze for thirds.

We've seen too much of the same in other titles. [Full Review in Spanish]

'The Death Cure' is a fairly serviceable finale. Assuming, of course, that it's really the end. And if it is, then "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" left as it came: promising at first, but then the victim of repetition and overfamiliarity.
Full Review | Original Score: C+

If The Death Cure had been released when it was originally slated, it would have felt dated, contrived, and derivative. It still does, but a year later it's far enough behind the trend that you feel sorry for it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

The Death Cure is probably about as well-done as it was ever going to be allowed to be.

The script is bad. [Full Review in Spanish]
