The performances transcend the film's tropes, grounding it in characters that feel more complete than this subgenre often produces.
This story has more twists and turns than a second-rate soap opera.
Funny, strange, confrontational and subversive, this is one of the most interesting experiences you'll have at the cinema this year.
This film is so real. It treats its characters with so much care and sensitivity.
What a perfect end! This movie one of favorite movies.
First, I will state that this movie is almost nothing like the book. However, if you can look past that (after all, which movies these days are not vastly different from their literary inspirations?) this was a really good movie.The action scenes were packed and interesting to watch, and the slower scenes did a good job of keeping the movie grounded and developing the characters. Some of the actions scenes did strain credulity, but we don't watch a movie or read a book to experience reality. We watch a movie to escape reality, and that is what this movie does. It gives you an escape from real life, while still holding enough reality to make the characters and their actions relatable.There were definitely some plot holes and questions that really should have been answered, that needed to be answered. For example, why did the immunes have to be put through such horrific "trials" in order for a cure to be found? Why did Thomas not realize that his blood could save Newt as it had done with Brenda, or that it could at least give Newt a little bit more time? But as with all movies, you can't answer every question unless you want a movie that is four hours long. It also isn't realistic to get all of the answers sometimes. How often are we left questioning things in our own lives? Sometimes things happen without us knowing the reasons why.I also feel like the actors did a really good job at portraying their characters in a realistic way. Dylan O'Brien makes Thomas so real, and you truly feel that he wants nothing more in life than to save his friends and keep them safe. Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Newt, is the reliable right-hand man who follows Thomas' lead but questions him at times to bring him back to earth. And Will Poulter gives a great performance and makes Gally feel like he is still essentially the same character from the first movie, a good guy who did bad things because he was scared for his friends, and now he wants to make amends for what he's done.Some people will hate this movie because it doesn't wrap everything up in a nice little bow, or because it does not follow the book religiously. But keeping in mind that this is a movie trilogy based on a book series intended to be read by TEENAGERS, I think that this movie delivered exactly what it promised. A movie about teenagers meant for teenagers, who don't always do things the same way that adults would, nor do they look at circumstances, reasons, or questions in the same way either. It gives a unique perspective of an imaginary situation and guesses what a group of teenagers would do if faced with those circumstances, and I think that they did a pretty good job of delivering an answer.Overall, this was a really good movie when you look at it as being there purely for entertainment. And isn't that all that a movie is meant to be anyway?
I fell in love with the first movie; it invited me to read the books. And wow the first book was so much better, the second one got me up all night and the third one left me with so many questions and a bit bad feeling. Those questions I got answered in the latest book and it gave some more. It ended this series like it should. So after a pretty ok first movie i was so excited for the second one. What happened there? The promised to made it up in part 3. Things will come together and meet the book story line but when will that happen?? This third one is jsut for the kicks. Bad actions scenes that look okay. Weird misplaced reverences (rosie bite my nosie; just showed the actually scene in part 2!!) and a total different plot and story line. I get that movies are different from books and that is okay... but this is just hours of bad scenes while there is a book wich such a good story line! Hey it is Thomas his blood! You silly wckd people, forgot to sample that and try it before you put him in the maze? So why the maze than? And why would you blow up a great city where you could have lived? And why change everything there was a good story. It should have ended back in the maze. Too many whys popping up in my head. It is just a no for me.
Dont waste your time predictable,bad plot,bad acting.
