Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials – None of this movie made sense to me

mazerunner2Film and television reviews by our resident autistic film critic Maymay.

After having escaped the Maze, the Gladers now face a new set of challenges on the open roads of a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles.  In this next chapter of the epic “Maze Runner” saga, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers face their greatest challenge yet: searching for clues about the mysterious and powerful organization known as WCKD. Their journey takes them to the Scorch, a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles. Teaming up with resistance fighters, the Gladers take on WCKD’s vastly superior forces and uncover its shocking plans for them all.

What the heck did I just watch? I do not think this movie could be any more confusing than it already was. None of this movie made sense to me. The only thing I understood was that they were trying to escape WCKD. Everything else was a jumbled up puzzle that was impossible to solve. The zombies,the alien shrimp looking things and the people living in the mountains? Where did all these other people come from. I wish this made sense. I may just red the book to try and understand what happened. I think it would have been better if it did.I hope the third movie will make more sense and easier to understand. I liked that Gianocarlo Esposito was in it. He plays Sydney in Once Upon a Time. I knew his character looked familiar but he looked different. At first I couldn’t even tell it was him but then I saw him and knew he was familiar. I liked the first movie better than this one. I do wish to know where the people in the mountains came from because I know the people in the WCKD building were from other mazes.
