Other audience reviewers seem caught up in the fact that the film departs "too" broadly from the book, forgetting (or not realizing) that novels and films are significantly different mediums and must be treated accordingly. A perfect film recreation of a book will almost invariably be an uninspired, unoriginal, and bad movie. Having never read the Maze Runner series in its entirety, but having a background in screenwriting and a love of the film medium, frankly I don't care if this movie is a good adaptation or not. It's still a good movie on its own. It improves on what worked in The Maze Runner, and does it with feeling (albeit perhaps breaching the barrier between emotion and cheap sentimentality). No, it's not perfect, and it's not among the greats, but it is good.

Finally, the last and final film of the trilogy Maze Runner. This time it's all about retrieving their friend Minho and Theresa choosing the sides of the WCKD in hopes of finding the cure. This movie is also full of action and adventures. And the return of Gally is just right on time! The finale is a bit unexpected since 2 of the main characters did not make it to the end. But the film was able to nail it and give justice to the fallen comrades. This is really a good movie if you want action, adventure, thrill, and friendship - this is the place to be!Good job to all the people who worked behind this film and of course to the casts who gave their best in this film! Will definitely gonna watch it again! :)

Worst movie ever. Why we got another sequel of Maze Runner but the last of the Divergent movies went straight to TV is unbelievable. This SUCKED. It was far too long and was mind-numbingly boring. Each one of these movies was its own separate movie. The first was about the maze, the second one was about zombies, and this was just a cheesy action flick. I wanted to see more of the zombies. There were very few in this movie and made very little difference in the scheme of things. I would not recommend this movie. It is a waste. I would re-watch Divergent again if I had to.
