Maze Run­ner: The Death Cure (12)

The young adult tril­ogy comes to a close in de­cent fash­ion – but a long way off its ace first chap­ter.

A pre­dom­i­nately young cast con­tinue to do good work, sup­ple­mented by a sin­is­ter Ai­dan Gillen and care­free Gian­carlo Es­pos­ito. But the story drags, call­backs to the first flick feel forced and an open cli­max un­der­whelms.

Winch­ester (15)

Hav­ing made a good fist of res­ur­rect­ing the Saw se­ries with Jig­saw, The Spierig Broth­ers don’t do such a grand job with their haunted house movie.

That’s de­spite land­ing He­len Mir­ren, whose fraught heiress is the best thing in this turgid af­fair. More bor­ing than scary, it plods along with lit­tle ur­gency or in­ter­est.
