Like many other entries in this genre of YA dystopia, “Maze Runner” is a movie trilogy. All three films are completed, having passed through theaters already, and are now available to watch online. No subscription streaming site has all three, but they can be rented through various sites, including Amazon, YouTube, and Apple, for $3.99 each. If this is going to be a repeat watch, however, they can be bought on Amazon for $4.99 each.
The strongest of the bunch, according to critics, is the first in the series, 2014’s “The Maze Runner.” Alongside Dylan O’Brien and Kaya Scodelario, it stars Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who’s known as the little boy in “Love Actually,” Jojen Reed in “Game of Thrones,” and the chess cowboy in “The Queen’s Gambit.” The second in the series, “The Scorch Trials,” is also available on Hulu, but only with the addition of the Live TV add-on. Despite its weaknesses, “The Scorch Trials” adds Giancarlo Esposito to the cast; he’s arguably best known for his excellent villainous runs in both “Breaking Bad” and “The Mandalorian.” The third film, “The Death Cure,” finishes off the story that’s so-far evolved to encompass a deadly, zombie-fying virus.
Once finished with those three movies, fans can get more of the story by reading the two prequel novels.
