Good movie but grossly overrated

A different way of telling a story
After watching the first movie I was thrilled to watch the second one. I've never been more disappointed in my life, not even when I watched "from dusk till dawn" for the first time. I was expecting to get answers in this movie but all I got was more questions. I wanted to know why they put people in the maze in the first place and why Teresa and Thomas worked for wickd but suddenly were put in the maze etc etc.This movie is just more than 2 hours wasted on more questions than before. Half of the lines are: "come on, let's go!" "What is going on?" And "You'll see" and the worst part is that you don't even get to see or even understand what the h*ll is going on. I recommend watching the first movie but you could easily skip the second one and live on with your life.
I watched it a second time because I forgot I have already watched it for the first time. Yeah! That's how bad it is! I remembered I watched it already once because it's so bad that I cringed so many times during the second time that I remembered I also cringed so many times the first time I watch it!
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, is the follow up sequel following Thomas and the rest of the Gladers on their journey outside the maze where W.I.C.K.D has them in their clutches so they can find the cure for the flare. Scorch Trials is good though not better than the first. This film introduces new characters, a new game of survival, and last but not least, CRANKS (zombies of the future). The film kind of drags, though brings a new light to the story. Now, the second movie does not stay true to the books, though opens a new door for the series as it becomes a pop culture phenomenon."Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope has killed more of my friends than the Flare and Scorch combined."-Brenda, Maze Runner: Scorch Trials
A decent action film, like the first. Some scenes can be extremely tense, particularly the chase scenes. Most of the CGI was good, but could still use some improvement. The city sometimes looked a little too fake in my opinion. All of the action is quite thrilling, the glass scene being intense. The acting was also good, my favourite being Aidan Gillen from Game of thrones. He is amazing at playing a deeply unlikable villain. Certain characters are not given enough time to expand on and feel like they come out of nowhere. There is a death scene that could have been very sad if we knew the character better. The film definitely feels like set up for the next, this could be due to it being based on a book. It needed more of pay off in this film to make it feel more than just set up for the next.I liked the twists in the film, but it needed more time explaining it. Overall a decent action film but can be improved!
