Everything Wrong With The Maze Runner In 16 Minutes Or Less
A quick refresher: in the first film, we met Thomas, who woke up in the middle of a complicated AF maze controlled by a sinister organization known as WCKD , with no memory of his past. After banding together with a crew of other boys known as the Gladers , Thomas and his squad struggled to find a way out of the maze… facing plenty of danger along the way. After escaping the maze only to find out it was phase one of a sinister test, in Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials , the Gladers searched for clues about the mysterious organization WCKD, which was all about conducting experiments on teens and guess who they were targeting next? Phase two was wild. Between escaping the labs and finally finding the Right Arm resistance group, a whoooole lot of shit goes down.
