FRI­DAY MAZE RUN­NER: THE SCORCH TRI­ALS

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.30PM FOX­TEL PRE­MIERE ★★★

This se­ries’ qual­ity open­ing salvo was a rip­ping lit­tle chase movie. This se­quel keeps pace with its pre­de­ces­sor on most fronts, even though young hero Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fel­low rebels are no longer con­fined to a claus­tro­pho­bic rat-race in the one des­o­late place. Only stick­ing points are a mild case of “sec­ond-movie syn­drome” (where the film­mak­ers hedge their bets for the fi­nale) and ex­ces­sive vi­o­lence that def­i­nitely should not be ex­pe­ri­enced by pri­mary school­ers.
