The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. 

The Maze was just the beginning. After the harrowing adventure of escaping the maze, the Gladers find themselves right in the center of an epic mystery in MAZE RUNNER: THE SCORCH TRIALS, available on Blu-ray™ and DVD December 15. Mysteries deepen and stakes are raised as the Gladers must survive “The Scorch” in this bigger, even more suspenseful and action-packed chapter of the Maze Runner phenomenon.

The critically acclaimed young-adult saga based on author James Dashner’s best-selling book series has taken the world by storm on the way to nearly $600M1 at the global box office for the franchise, thanks to its remarkable young cast led by director Wes Ball, including Dylan O’Brien (“Teen Wolf”), Thomas Brodie-Sangster (“Game of Thrones”), Ki Hong Lee (“The Unbreakable Kimmie Shmidt”) and Kaya Scodelario (“Skins”). Based on the second book in a trilogy by James Dashner, the series sold more than nine million copies in all formats.
There’s more action, more excitement and more spectacular effects in this thrilling new chapter of the epic Maze Runner saga that’s taken the world by storm! They may have escaped from the Maze, but Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers now face a greater challenge: searching for clues about the secret organization known as WCKD. Their journey leads them to the Scorch, a desolate wasteland filled with unimaginable dangers.  The mystery deepens at every turn as the Gladers work together to discover their purpose and battle to survive in this must-see, electrifying adventure!

I had read the first book a few years ago and unfortunately I had not even seen the first movie yet but I do own it on Blu-ray so as soon as I received Maze Runner : The Scorch Trials to review I had to watch the first movie and by the end of the first movie I couldn't wait to start watching the second one.

I have no idea if The Scorch Trials is anything like the book since I have not read the book.  I did enjoy this movie very much. I was entertained.  Acting was good and there were some great effects and I loved the story-line. 

I give this movie 4 out of 5

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials Blu-ray/Dvd is now available in stores near you and online.
