Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials | Ratings & Reviews

"“Where are we, what are we doing here, and how the hell do we get out?” The first Maze Runner film posed these questions then answered them, and this sequel follows on from the big reveal of its predecessor to further move from mystery to complexity. This isn’t unwelcome, and saves us from a retread of more maze running in favour of a more labyrinthine plot. Fear not though, there are still tunnels and corridors and air conditioning ducts to navigate, and doors to slide under, if that’s why you’re here."

"Succeeds well enough as derivative survival-horror-action thrillers go, but makes for an unsatisfying, confusing sequel."


"Rather than Maze Runner 2: We're Gonna Need A Bigger Maze, Scorch Trials ambitiously opens up its world with mixed results: gripping action, so-so script."

Total FilmTotal Film

"This film is making a wheezing, spluttering sound: the sound of a profitable YA franchise running out of steam."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Ball makes assured use of the wide screen: much of the film's interest lies in the different types of terrain covered, from cramped corridors and air vents to barren desert to a ruined city that might have been designed by M. C. Escher."

Sydney Morning HeraldSydney Morning Herald

"Essentially just one long scene, bookended by a minimum of necessary exposition."


"Lacks a sense of originality and urgency, undercut by overly familiar characterizations and dilatory pacing."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Overall, this is a worthy addition to what is shaping as one of the better youth-centric series of its kind."

Herald SunHerald Sun

"It’s only recommended for those who have seen the first film and plan on seeing the third, but as middle instalments go this is an entertaining one that’s all the better for being unfaithful to the book."
