The Death Cure has been surrounded with much controversy when actor Dylan O'Brien suffered a horrific accident causing production to shutdown while he recovered. A few months later O'Brien was back on set and finished his scenes. The third installment of the franchise pulled out all the stops from beginning to end. The action set pieces were big and ambitious as most of the cast did their own stunts. The stunt coordinator and stunt men/women really out did themselves for this film as the action never really stops but only for exposition. 

Acting in the film is solid across the board, O'Brien as always shines brightest but Thomas Brodie-Sangster also come out shining in the end. The two's chemistry makes for a compelling friendship. Kaya Scodelario returns and she has some good moments in the film and her character arc has a solid landing in execution. All in all the film is kinetic action from start to end with it's moments of heart and somber that create a good ending to this trilogy and a nice closing chapter for Dylan O'Brien.
