Paige tells Janson there are 28 immune kids left. Some scenes later, Teresa tells Minho that there are 28 kids left besides him. That would make the total 29. Either Paige or Teresa is wrong. See more »

For starters let me say that i loved the first two films. The first offered mystery and the second offered a bit of horror (more or less). I will admit though, the second is the weak link of the three, and the first being the best one (in my opinion), and The Death Cure delivers something that the last two didn't.....tons of action.
From the opening scene to the last, the action basically never stops. Although some of the action sequences aren't emotion rich, they are still very entertaining. You will certainly never be bored.
I do feel the plot was a bit thin, but that in no way makes this a bad movie, if anything it makes it easier to watch. I just feel a deeper, more complex plot would've added to the drama and action of the film.
The actors portray their characters extremely well, especially Dylan, he can truly make the audience feel what he's feeling. Although character development was not a strong point in this film, i feel it didn't need to be. Because if you've seen the other two films, you already know how the characters are and how they feel towards other characters and what they believe is right and wrong. For me, the first two films provided the character development, this was just the ending.
There are some very powerful and emotional scenes in this film especially towards the end (I, myself did tear up at one point), and the ending, i feel, was really satisfying. Im still trying to decide if they left it open for a fourth or if this really is the last one, if so, i wont mind at all.
I do believe that fans of the books and the first two films will enjoy this film a bit more than just your average movie goer, but it does still deliver even if you're not interested in the whole story.
All in all this is a great movie, it delivers on the action and the heart and even has a couple of slight twists and shocks. This was just a satisfying, brilliant and sad end to a terrific trilogy.
The end was indeed WCKD!!
