Overall, a great movie. Plot's great. But you have to realize something: this is NOT the book. You have 6,7,8 characters that are the same. And that's it.
BASED ON BOOK REVIEW:
I don't understand why they had to include so much swearing. Gladers have their own language, and you should honor it. here is so much swearing in this. The word sh*t is used every other word, almost. This is NOT at all like the book. To prove my point: Some of the characters that die in the book don't even die. And characters that don't die in the book die in the movie. There is a scene in the movie - a party. A drunken party where everyone's a bit woozy, wearing inappropriate clothing. None of my favorite scenes are in their - in the tunnel, the white-clothed man with the food, Teresa's "group." Brenda isn't what I imagined at all. This movie shouldn't even be called The Scorch Trials, it's that different. If you clear your mind of the book, you can enjoy it.
Really good movie to watch, minus the swearing. Not gonna lie, the actors are cute and you really get attached to them. A big plot twist at one point. I have one word of advice: You've gotta watch it all at once. You can't stop. Swear words are muttered as commonly as the characters breathe. You shouldn't let this stop you though.
Know that your kid will probably fall in love with one of the main characters, Newt (played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster). You might want to have a discussion on celebrity crushes with them.
This movie can get a little violent. It's a dystopian future, but not very sci-fi-ish. Even if you hate sci-fi, you'll like this. Be prepared for swearing, however.
