I only went to this out of a misguided sense of obligation. An OCD based need for completeness. I liked the maze setup of the first one, but the second one just seemed like a bunch of running around to me. I’ve said many times, but when it comes to dystopian YA stories, I care more about the world they live in than the revolution, and this series is disproportionately favored towards the revolution.
Yeah so after spending a movie running around we’ve got more running around. Srsly, most of the film is just these long paint-by-numbers action sequences (if you can even call them action). And sometimes there’s zombies, sorta? There were a few moments of suspense, but mostly the movie was a snooze. Oh and they have no concept of how science works.
I guess it’s okay for fans of the series, or young ‘uns who don’t really know how good movies work. Otherwise, it’s not even worth spending more thought on.
