When submitted for classification for its UK cinema release, the BBFC advised the distributors to cut some gruesome moments to avoid a 15 rating. These included some moments of threat and horror involving "zombie-like" characters and shots of injuries caused by a beating. When the film was resubmitted with these cuts made, it was given a 12A. The uncut version was later released as a limited edition Steelbook Blu-ray with a 15 rating. See more »
I liked it more than Part 1, but not everybody will...
OK, so I found Scorch Trials exciting and more complete as a movie.
It also had a better cliffhanger in my opinion, because I felt like I needed to watch the next part NOW. Whereas for the ending of Maze Runner, I was like... "Here we go again???"
For sure... part 2 did not have the novelty of part 1, and for that reason alone some people might give a lower score. In fact, this movie felt more like a zombie survival movie with long screen time in darkness, jumpscares and all, so this is another reason some fans of the first part might not like Scorch Trials. It has a darker atmosphere.
It also has many cliché moments, and scenes taken right out from other movies like Jurassic park. Unoriginal ideas, but well, they worked OK in this movie.
As for the acting, I liked it. I thought everyone did a pretty compelling job. I liked the twist at the end, which unlike in many movies, doesn't feel forced.
All in all, Scorch Trials is a very different movie from the first. Different settings, different environment, different atmosphere. Once again, it did not have the novelty and originality the first part had.
But with that said, I can't say it wasn't exciting and entertaining, and made me look forward to the next part.
