Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials – Trailer

I haven’t read any of the books that The Maze Runner was based on, but I really, really disliked the movie.  Maybe it would have went over better if I had, but should you have to read the book to make sense of the movie?

(The answer is: Of course not!)

The setup behind the entire enterprise was so convoluted, so needlessly elaborate that I found myself laughing at some pretty odd moments.

Which is a good thing if you’re talking about a comedy, not so good if you’re talking about a drama and the scenes in question happen to be deadly serious.

With Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones, The Wire) joining the cast it should add a significant shot of gravitas, though is that really what the series needs?

Even more than just a cleaner, more logical screenplay?
