Running Time: 142 minutes

Another Young Adult book-to-film series is set to come to a close this week with Maze Runner: The Death Cure. You’ll be forgiven for having forgotten about the previous features; it has been nearly two and a half years since the last installment in the franchise (due to a horrible on-set accident in 2016 early into the production that put its star out of commission for several months). This finale arrives chock full of action and explosions, although from a story perspective this feels like both a blessing and a curse.

This chapter resumes with Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) having long escaped the mazes, survived travel across a...

Rating: «« out of ««««

Running Time: 140 min.

Lately, it seems the early part of the year has been turning into something of a home for crime pictures. In the last couple of years, we’ve seen titles like Triple 9 and Blackhat released to modest fanfare. Den of Thieves certainly falls into this category. It’s a heist picture that aspires to greatness, but doesn’t quite hit the heights hoped.
