“Maze Runner: the Scorch Trials” answers many of the questions from the first movie. This does not mean that you are taking a scenic journey for the next two hours. In fact, it was so high paced that the key actors trained at a boot camp before shooting.
Dylan O’Brien, who played Thomas said, “This movie has been as rigorous, if not more so, than the first one. I never thought that was possible. It’s beyond just the running. Now we’re racing through sandstorms, trudging up dunes and battling Cranks.”
Ki Hong Lee, who played Minho added, “This movie is tougher than the first. We’re running for the entire story- running away from Cranks, running away from WCKD, running up sand dunes. What’s more, I have to be the fastest, the strongest, and the most badass of the team!”
The movie takes the group out into a desolate waste land where they encounter danger upon danger. At one point, they encounter Cranks. Cranks have contracted a virus but seem to be super charged, almost unstoppable, zombies.
We find out that the group has the ability to survive the virus. As a result WCKD has a plan for them and we finally find out their shocking intentions.
