THE MAZE WAS JUST THE BEGINNING.
After getting out of the maze, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien), Teresa (Kaya Scodelario) and the other boys are taken to a facility where everything does not seem to be right under the surface… This sequel throws the teenagers into new dangerous adventures, this time in 3D, where they also meet new allies in the struggle against the militaristic organization WCKD. Lots of action makes it look almost like a war flick at times. Well made, but the mysterious maze offered more tension, and there isn’t much emotional or intellectual weight here.
