Wes Ball ends the Maze Runner trilogy in an appropriately epic fashion. If a little unsatisfying in some aspects.
The action scenes are far more ambitious than the previous films, the scope is bigger, and the cast adds more classy actors looking for a good pay day. For a film which cost half of your average Hunger Games sequel, it does look good.
What does work in Death Cure's favor is that it's more of an ensemble adventure than the other two. Other characters get a chance to shine than simply following O'Brien around.
It may also run a tad longer than it has to. Some subplots aren't resolved properly. The central villains which conceptually fascinating for their moral ambiguity remain as non threatening as ever.
