The Scorch Trials came out in September 18th in theaters. A few months ago, the Maze Runner came out, the first movie in the series. In the story, a group of boys known as glader’s (for the exception of one girl) have just made it out of a complex maze full of devilish monsters known as Grievers. Thomas (the main character) is a teen boy who had lost all his memories along with the rest of the boys (and girl). Leading and solving the puzzles of the maze, Thomas and the Glader’s have landed on a world of corruption, AKA the Scorch. There, they meet the true reason that sent the world into apocalypse, the Cranks. So who are these things…? Well they are first off infected and feast on flesh and garbage. They are also gruesome and at some point in time of infection, they will turn completely into a monster. So do Thomas and his friends know about this? Actually yes, because they were informed of the outside decaying world but they do not have any notion or idea of how horrible the creatures are.

In the movie directed by Wes Ball, Thomas and his friends find themselves taken to a big complex where they are treated as guests along with many other people who escaped other mazes. As Thomas and the other glader’s stay more and more at the complex, there seemed to be an unsettling tension as each day a few people were called on to go with 2 security guards to a secret lab and never return afterwards. When a new character by the name of Aris rises to assist Thomas to find the truth of what is really happening down at the lab in the hopes that Thomas will guide the other glader’s to make the decision of escaping the complex. It appeared to be that down at the lab the main leader of the complex, Janson was told to pretend they were not WICKED when they truthfully were. The head chancellor of WICKED was Ava Paige who planned on collecting the people’s brain (kill zone) patterns in order to create a cure to stop the virus that turned people into cranks and madness.

As Thomas and the others attempt escape, Janson is chasing them with much pity. The rumors were that no one has ever made it out of the Scorch (the surrounding lands of the complex) alive. As Thomas and the others have no other choice, they escape the enormous lair and take cover under the lands of the Scorch. As the story unfolds their first encounter of the Scorch, it leaves a dirty taste of the after effects of infection as one glader by the name of Winston is turning and so he commits suicide. During the chase Thomas and the Gladers meet outcasts of the Scorch , Brenda (and so called Jorge). As they decide to accompany them to the quest of freedom, WICKED realizes the intensity of the situation and focuses everything on finding the group (of test subjects). Luckily, for both Thomas and WICKED, they both find some aid to the situation. As the story unfolds a betrayal brings about flaws that Thomas and his companions must take back. “It’s sort of like the Walking Dead in a lot of different ways, only the characters are changed in such a way to fit the plot of the story,” Brianna Vottis, an eighth grader in the Mohawk house. This sequel is very different from the book description but it ties into the plot in a dramatic yet efficient way and it results in an astounding screenplay.
