Maze Runner: Scorch Trials D-BOX Movie Review

Genre fatigue is really kicking in with these teen future type movies. Hunger Games is the daddy, Insurgent is the poor relative, Maze Runner should be put down, and we won't even mention The Giver! Scorch Trials carrys on from the first Maze Runner movie, and the kids are "rescued", they then spend most of the first half of the movie trusting people who won't tell them whats going on. The second half of the movie sees them trudging across The Scorch (or in english, future desert) to reach a band of rebels. Only when they get there they decide to trudge all the way back and seek revenge! Completely boring! The only redeeming feature are the fairly scary chase scenes with Cranks (or in english, zombies), cause by The Flare (or in english, virus). This renaming of obvious simple english terms is still infuriating, this is set on future Earth after all, so why all the "this is what we call..." references? DVD job at best, and probably won't bother with the third film.

D-BOX added nothing to this film either!
