"I know it's hard, but act like you've seen it before," one character says to gawking young hero Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) on arrival. Not hard at all.

Just when you think things are being wrapped up, they come unwrapped, and the picture goes on for another 40 minutes, prolonging your pain with a sadism that would make even the movie's sneering villain feel a bit guilty.

While The Maze Runner franchise has never threatened to go down in cinematic history, it will at least be remembered for giving the increasingly impressive director Wes Ball and compelling star Dylan O'Brien the opportunity to show off their skills.

The script is just so-so, but Ball's directorial eye, clear in the first "Maze Runner" film though largely AWOL in the second, saves the third and final adventure from its own bloat.

"The Death Cure" may not be able to fully overcome its fundamental childishness, but its director grows up right before our eyes. Here's hoping that his next trilogy is more worthy of his talents.

"Death Cure" is the most successful entry in the franchise by far. It may be too late to turn the cultural tide on the genre, but it comes as a relief to see at least one series manage to stick the landing.

The Death Cure is probably about as well-done as it was ever going to be allowed to be.

the drastic changes to the source material have left this series in a bad spot. I'm really not interested in this series conclusion.
