Plot: 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. Runtime: 132 mins Release Date: 18 Sep 2015
Probably the best film I've seen in 2015 so far, along with Mad Max.Since I'm a book nerd, I did expect much from this film, and I got even more. I am actually not sure which one is better.There's a lot of changes for sure, but I consider it to be a positive thing since you get two awesome things, not only one.Great effects, great cast. A good sense of humor and some high class action. It's like 10 genres combined in one film. Not suitable for children though, in my opinion. The guy, 25+ years old, that was sitting next to me was scared as hell. Cranks do look somewhat scarier <more>
then the walkers in TWD, and are faster and more aggressive.Comparing to the first film, you can imagine The Maze Runner being a toddler, and The scorch trials being an adult. It is definitely more serious and hardcore.One more film TST has reminded me of was Snowpiercer, so if you're a fan you'll definitely like it.
One of the Best Films of 2015 (by rohitkhanna-33714)
My opinion might be a little biased cause I'm a huge fan of the Utopian and Ethiopian genre. But this movie definitely exceeded my expectations. It definitely trumps divergent by far, might even be on par with the hunger games. This movie was non stop action, and mystery. It definitely succeeded in keeping me on edge wondering what was going to happen next. If you're contemplating whether or not you should watch it, do yourself a favor and watch it, believe me you will not regret it! I cannot wait until the sequel comes out! Great stuff! Well that's about it for what I have to <more>
say, you've gotta watch the movie to really understand the good things about it. The movie Is good.
The Scorch Trials is an insanely action packed film. I loved every second of it, along with every other fan in the theater. Is it different from the book? Yes. It's very different at times, but Wes took the best from the book and added it into the movie, along with filling in the blanks with terrifying Cranks and the relentlessness of WCKD. I don't doubt that this movie will perform better than the first, if anything, it'll blow up. The movie did not seem to have any faults from my eyes, and if anything, answered several questions that the first left unanswered. The ending is <more>
different from the book, though I fully trust Wes to wrap this series on a high note. I could not have asked for a better sequel in this already amazing series.
Highly entertaining sequel, It's arguable which one is the best. . (by fabiolpinheiro1993)
The first Maze Runner is one of my favourite films, definitely among the best YA film adaptations, its very original, unique, creative, distinctive but better than all, its highly addictive. Its ending all but assured i had to see the sequel, and today, i saw it...It's really really good,i loved it, i cant say if it did match my expectations or not because i didn't know almost nothing about the sequel nor i saw much about it, because i chose not to, but i can say i liked the original a bit more.The story picks up right after the first film, and it is generally about explaining the <more>
tons of mysteries left to explain in the first film mostly in that ending , a bit more about WICKED, who are the good ones and the bad ones and what the characters want to do with all that information.Though there are still some things to explain, since in this film its all very vague and rarely mentioned, like what concretely happened to the world, and how the virus started and what really is the virus and the origins of WICKED. But i guess the sequel will explain these things.This film has a lot more action that the first, and the action scenes are very very good, overall distinctive and creative. They add some very cool new things to the story but i think that overall the first film had a more addictive story and plot. But the film is very interesting, and is still addictive, but not on the same level of the first, because there's not a precise plot, nor a highly unique or constructive one, and more they explain less mystery there is, and although there are some great twists and one that is pretty big, the first film had a lot more twists.They could have gone deeper into the backstory of Thomas, and Teresa and the Right Arm, particularly Mary, its a shame they didn't because they only talk vaguely about all this. I guess my biggest complaint about this film is the lack of backstory.The characters all return, they continue to be very cool, particularly Minho, of course Thomas is the biggest star, and there's new characters, quite a few, but Jorge Giancarlo Esposito has to be the best of them, he steals the show, followed by Brenda Rosa Salazar . I also wanted to know a bit more about them, but we get to know them well enough.The production values are highly good, a step up from the already good production values of the first film. The sound particularly deserves a lot of praise, its highly creative and the mixing is perfect, but the visual effects particularly the city also deserve praise. The cinematography is great. The score is very good, nothing new, but very good.The film is highly entertaining, has some very cool action scenes, has a scale much bigger than the first film, is just very good. But i don't think it is as addictive as the first, overall i think the first film is just a bit more unique. But they are almost on the same level so in the end its arguable which one is the best. Now, after another great ending, lets bring the third installment. Cant wait.
Not having read the book versions, cinema-wise 'Scorch' a different but great follow up. (by odaat-30737)
When we last left off in 2014 'The Maze Runner', Thomas Dylan O'Brien and the remaining clan of youths whom managed to escape the ever evolving maze, were seemingly rescued from an abandoned science laboratory by a band of armed rebels. If you've wondered where exactly the rescued are being flown to by the helicopter at the conclusion of that film, the answer lies in the recently released second installment of the trilogy, 'The Scorch Trials'. Upon landing in an apocalypses world of wasteland and chaotic battle of people, the clan is rushed into an enormous <more>
security facility, in which a high tech vault door shuts behind them shielding them from all the dangers of the outside world. Upon meeting, Mr. Janson Aidan Gillen whom is the head of the facility, he explains that they are here among many other survivors from similar mazes. The clan's secure feelings of being in a safe haven become short lived when circumstances reveal to Thomas that Mr. Janson is not who he makes himself out to be. Discovering that the clan and all the other youths are being targeted and set up as guinea pigs again for another test due to their immunity to the world-wide virus outside, the clan escapes; only to enter a world almost beyond recognition. Running away in a big city lost in sand and rubble, they also fight for survival from bizarre weather occurrences caused by the solar flare epidemic explained to them in the end of 'The Maze Runner'. They embark on a journey where they must seek to build alliances with apocalypse survivors; however having the shaky task of trying to discern who really is good and who is bad. What I particularly loved most of all in the world that director Wes Ball has created was the exterior settings. Unless I missed it, there has never been mention of how long ago the world's fallout was supposed to have occurred. However; in contrast to many apocalypse themed movies where you find empty damaged cities with freeways with old cars frozen in space on the roads long abandoned, the wastelands here reminds me of the ancient ruins you'd find of Rome. Freeway overpasses are only half in place, skyscrapers look like building skeletons, and tall bridges are sunken into tower high piles of sand. While I've always got the vibe that since film number 1 that the fallout occurred as long as a century ago, the visuals seems to suggest of what America might look like thousands of years from now if it were to fall. Like many science fiction movies that are made for entertainment but also has undertone spiritual or political themes that not everyone may catch onto, for me, 'The Scorch Trials' seemed to have some themes that are relevant in today's society. I will restrain myself from pacifically declaring what theme that would be since I believe it would clue off too much of a spoiler about plot, but for the time being, think about that old rationalizations philosophy by some people who believe the bad things must be done for the greater good. While there are many eerie far-fetched things that you will experience in seeing what happens to humans inflicted with the solar flare virus, Ava Paige Patricia Clarkson whom works amongst scientists, brings to surface something that could be seen as a plausible scenario in the far future of America. I believe that what this character wants to do in this story, echoes an issues that you will find in today's media in a much smaller scale. Along with the already great established cast, two interesting new actors show up in portraying both the antagonist and uncertain antagonist. Probably best known for the slick, charming manipulative character, Littlefinger in HBO's current hit, 'Games of Thrones', Aidan Gillen nicely plays one of the head men from the lab who puts on two faces. Then there is Giancarlo Esposito whose been playing projected bad guys in TV over the last several years: such as the rebel and militant Tom Neville in 2012-2014 'Revolution', the iconic double personality Gus Fring in seasons 2- 4 in AMC's, 2008-2013 'Breaking Bad', and even time to time appears in ABC as Sidney Glass/Magic Mirror in 2011- 'Once Upon a Time'. Here Esposito plays a personality who wrestles between antagonist and protagonist as an ally of the youth clan. If you are like me whose been waiting to see this film until the last minute, now would be the time to see it; as it is now appearing to me that the lifespan torch of 'The Scorch Trials is about to get snubbed out in the town I live in. Personally, I enjoyed the first 'Maze Runner' a little bit more than this new installment probably because the maze was such a mystical place of mystery. However; I did at the same time find it just as enjoyable.
***might have spoilers***For me, The Scorch Trials really slammed the Divergent/Insurgent. This movie really exceeded my Expectations, and I'm sure it will exceed yours to. At some points from the beginning, there are little tiny bit of disappointments I have felt, but, I realized later that, that disappointments are nonsense! 'cause in the end it was a very good movie. The movie will make your jaws hang open, It's full of non-stop action and thrilling scenes that'll make you say, "oh, I think I haven't breathed for minutes". It's full of mysteries and <more>
suspense, they might give you goose bumps if you have read the book before watching the film. well, this is just my opinion. It was never boring, and it has a big cliffhangers. If you're doubting if you gonna watch it or not. you should watch it! It'll make your head full of mixed emotions. Believe me, This is a really great movie. go find its greatness yourself. But there's only one thing that really bugs me, the connection of the movie's title to the events. it's more like, the characters chose what they wanted to do and face the consequences, than WCKD gave trials to test them. Anyways, It's really a good movie. I can't wait to see "The Death Cure".P.S. don't mind the metascore!
More entertaining than the first installment (by do-arellano-mayra)
Let's get this straight out of the way. If you are tired of movies based on books that present a young cast, you won't find something here to convert you. However if you found the first movie to be a surprisingly entertaining, solid action flick;or if you don't mind the age of the main characters as long as the story deliveries, there's plenty to like here. Specially because there are some improvements over the flaws of the first film.The action sequences are gripping, well directed and have a feel of raw realism. It's evident that the ensemble of actors- young or mature- <more>
gave it all physically. It seems as though the stunts doubles had little to do in comparison to the average action flick.If in the first movie you got 2 or 3 action scenes to keep you in the edge of your seat,in The scorch trials you'll find action almost from the beginning.I'm not a fan of non-stop action, but I was particularly impressed with Barry Pepper who I heard filmed his action scenes with a broken ankle. The acting is extremely good. Not only the young lead Dylan O'Brien and his young co-stars, Ki Hong Lee, Kaya Scodelario, Rosa Salazar and Thomas Brodie Sangter, deliver strong performances, but also the supporting cast of mature actors. By the way if you have read or heard that the very talented supporting cast of mature actors is there only for their paychecks or that "they have better things to do" you are hearing a biased opinion by unprofessional reviewers who are tired of "YA adaptations". But just because some reviewers are tired of this "subgenre" doesn't mean that plenty of talented cast and crews aren't fully involved with these kind of stories in spite of the studios greedy intentions. This movie might not be perfect, might not be for everyone but one thing that you can tell for sure is that Barry Pepper, Alan Tudik, Aidan Gillen, Lily Taylor, Patricia Clarkson and particularly Giancarlo Esposito gave it all. They have amazing chemistry with the very talented young cast and they seem to be screaming "100% commitment to my role". It became clear to me through their committed performances that they believed in the project and that they trust the director Wes Ball. There's plenty of character development opportunities and these mature actors take advantage of them all even if their screen time is limited. Ava Paige as played by Patricia Clarkson started the movie as the archetypal "evil scientist" and by the end of the movie I was somehow rooting for her. She really needs to find a cure to this mysterious disease called "the flare". Giancarlo Esposito started limited by a role that seemed at first written to fulfill a quota of the typical "evil adult vs. innocent kid" trope. However, as the movie moves on we discover that he is far from being a cartnoonish "evil adult" and that his character is full of humanity. A scene in which he is concerned over his protegé was one of my favorites of a film from which I was only expecting mindless entertainment and non-stopping action.The problem is that this brilliant cast was limited by a script that seemed to go nowhere. I'd say the script is not as strong as the one of the first movie and that script wasn't particularly good to begin with. There are some improvements. This time some clichéd lines have gone away, there's more backbone to the characters and a little more of "showing-not-telling". But if you are thinking that everything that didn't make sense in the first one will make sense in this movie you might end up disappointed.One more time the movie ends in a cliffhanger although this time there's not a last minute info-dump. If you don't mind these minor flaws on the script you might end up enjoying the ride.In my opinion, the strongest part of the movie, besides the thrilling action and good acting are the visuals. I enjoyed the shots of the scorch because the cinematographer took plenty of risks. I want to see the movie again just to appreciate these shots better. There were also interesting shots in terms of composition.The VFX is extremely well executed. I thought the director was going to get overboard with the CGI usage but he wisely balanced the visual effects with the emotional arc to take the audience to a journey through this devastated lands in which under each nook, each skeleton building lies a new danger, a new story, a new world which I'd love to explore. As if this wasn't enough to make me want to see the movie again, Joe Paesano's score Daredevil TV series, The maze runner was masterfully used and added a special feeling to the already beautiful visuals. Mark my words, Paesano's scores will get him an Oscar somewhere in the near future.The scorch trials has everything to become a huge international box office success because is a solid, yet imperfect second chapter, that will keep audiences entertained and screaming for chapter 3.
The critics don't know SH!T (by TonightTurnYourWeaponsToSnow)
Well well, The Scorch Trials. What a great movie!From beginning to end, I was on the edge of my seat. Unlike the first, there's a lot more violence and death in this movie, and the Cranks are OH SO HORRIFYING!And as you may have expected, along with the Cranks comes lots of JUMP SCARES!This movie is super intense and action-packed that you won't want to look away for a moment. Also, there's a single scene about 35 minutes into the movie that shocked me. It wasn't meant to be a plot twist, but the way they pulled it off was incredible. Giving that away would be sad, so I want <more>
you to see it for yourself.Let's just say that it involves an quiet, emotional scene with a gun and a slowly growing infection through someone's body. Moving on...The thing I dislike is the lack of character development in the new characters introduced. Here's some random kid shown near the beginning, then when he only appears in the background and basically says nothing, I'm like 'Wait, who is he again?' when he finally begins to speak.The first movie was all about the action, but this one is all about the action and the PLOT. Oh yes, there is a plot twist near the end I didn't see coming, and it kind of involves a familiar character.So much happens in this movie that leaves your mind blown, and it leaves you off with a sort of cliffhanger. It will leave you saying 'The game is truly on...' except the game will be on in 2017. Shame.Overall, I say IGNORE THE CRITICS! They see this as Young Adult, which technically it is, but it's more of a Young Adult horror movie! It's certainly interesting.8/10. Go see it!
To begin with, I have to let you know that I was not aware of the existence of any book before I saw the first and second movie. So, comments like "you ruined the book", etc. don't make sense to me. I saw the first movie on a DVD and this one in the movie theater. For me it was pure entertainment for the entire duration of the movie! I liked the thrilling scenes and the chase from the zombie like people. At some points I could not help but thinking that it a PS4 game and at some point they would turn over the control of the actors to me and I would be left alone clicking on X or <more>
L1/R1 to run as fast as I can! I liked that but many may not like it. For me this was awesome!The acting was OK, as expected and really similar to the first one. It's not like you wait to see an Oscar-winning performance there, right? I really enjoyed all the special effects and the amazing scenes from the cities that are crumbling and falling apart. The movie seemed a lot longer than it is. The action-packed and full story behind it, gave too much information and left me feeling really "full" after watching it and this was not because of the XXL pop corn that I ate! I will go to the movies to see the third one, with excitement! And yes, it definitely is an "8" in its genre. "7" felt like a minimum, so I would easily give a "7.5" with pleasure! If you don't like this kind of post-apocaliptic stories, wait till it's out in DVD, don't spend money in the movies. If you do like them, go and see it, like yesterday!
