Did it do the book justice?

After taking a significant amount of time to come to theaters after the release of the first two movies of the series, The Maze Runner: The Death Cure, finally debuted on January 26. Fans of the books, and even the movies, shuffled into the theaters opening weekend to see what the last installment had to offer. Being a fan of the books, I was super excited to see my favorite of the series on the big screen, and although I have the tendency to compare movies to their books, I went in excited and with an open mind.

The movie starts with an opening scene of cars racing past the screen, towards a high speed train. Viewers can see the familiar face of Thomas, portrayed by Dylan O’brien, passenger in one of the cars. The intro is filled with high packed action as the cars rush towards the train, the viewers still ignorant as to why.

As the movie went on, I did notice quite a few differences from the book, but none that made me angry or annoyed. Most of the differences were just a different variation to what took place in the novel, so while it wasn’t exactly the same, the story line wasn’t extremely altered.

While the storyline was good, so was the acting. I feel like every actor served the characters justice and played the roles perfectly. There was never a moment where I wished someone else was on the screen instead.

I think the movie did the book justice and finally gave fans the conclusion they were waiting for. It didn’t leave me wondering or confused, it stirred emotions and reaction from the audience  and had plenty of action to keep people hooked. I, myself, give it a good rating as a fan of not only the acting and movie, but of the books that inspired the series itself.
