Trivia

The take which lead to Dylan O'Brien's head injury was used in the film, when Thomas jumps from the window of a moving car as it approaches the WCKD train. Wes Ball, who revealed that it was the longest shot of the sequence, asked O'Brien's permission to have it included in the film, to which O'Brien responded, "I need you to, in a way. I would be more heartbroken than if it just went to waste." After the incident, Ball decided to no longer shoot with a moving train and opted for a parked one instead, with effects from WETA giving the illusion that it was in motion. See more »

2 and a half hours of cliche after cliche
17 February 2018 | by atomikbusterSee all my reviews

All you're gonna see in this movie is a continuous stream of cliches. Sure, if it was released say, in 1970, when none of the superhero/sci-fi/fantasy that today is flooding the audiences was present, it would have been quite enjoyable and watchable. But in today's market it brings nothing new. I could constantly guess what was going to happen at the end of certain action scenes, and don't even get me started about the helicopter scene... that one was supposed to be dramatic and some kind of fitting twist but just left me enraged at the stupidity of the screenwriters/adaptation.

In the end it's quality is on par with the other 2 similar series (Divergent and Hunger Games), so, gets a 5 star "meh" out of me. Good for kids but intelligent people beware!
