Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) the young hero leads his group on their last and most dangerous mission to find a cure for a deadly disease. The escaped Gladers must break into the legendary Last City, a WCKD-controlled labyrinth which may turn out to be the deadliest maze of them all. Whoever makes it out alive gets all the answers to the questions the team Gladers have been seeking since they first arrived in the maze. The question is: Who will make it out alive?

According to Fairfax film reviewer Paul Byrne: “One, it is loud and full of action. Two, the settings are monumental and post-apocalyptic, which might reflect a certain pessimism on the part of the young audience, or just the fact that computers can do this stuff so well now, so why not? Three, it has an attractive set of six or seven young actors facing a troubled and devious adult world. And it has zombies, so what more could one ask for?”.
