The Maze Runner Scorch Trial is the sequel that has been released on
September 18, 2015. It is directed by Wes Ball and produced by Ellen
Goldsmith-vein, Wyck Godfrey, Marty Bowen and Lee Stollman.
The Cast Members are Dylan O’Brien as Thomas, Thomas Brodie-Sangster
as Newt, Ki Hong Lee as Minho, Kaya Scodelario as Teresa, Rosa
Salazar as Brenda, Jacob Lofland as Aris, and Giancarlo Esposito as
It’s a suspenseful movie, like when Thomas and Brenda get lost and end up in
the tunnels because the viewer doesn’t know if they are going to
escape or get attacked.
The digital effects are great. Like the way they made the
buildings look like they were destroyed and slammed into one another. Further,
they made the deserted city a realistic scene.
Some scenes didn't make sense. For example, Aris was running with the group then
the door opens and he is on the other side of the door. That didn't
seem realistic and the director and the author could have done a better
job on that scene.
Also, the Horhay is Latino name. Why would actors
pronounce as George but write it as Jorge? It doesn't make sense.
Now to the story:

Thomas goes and talks to Aris who tells him that they are
being deceived and that this place is not a safe haven, "something
weird is happening here," he adds.
When everyone is asleep, Aris comes out of

and Aris crawl through the small vent and they see a body carried by
doctors into a room.
Thomas hurries back to tell his friends that this place is not what
they thought it was. It is still under control of the company,

they have never left the WICKEDs' control because they are still experimenting

asks Newt about Teresa, as he hasn't seen her. When Thomas
and others go looking for her, they find her in a different part of
the building, and tell her that they are leaving.
They start running for the exit but they find it locked and
the access card doesn’t work anymore. Suddenly, the doors open because Aris opens them from the other side.
At that moment, the guard in charge, Janson, screams at them to come
back because they will not be able to survive outside in the “SCORCH.”
