Verdict – 2/5

 

Pros –
1) Planes, Trains, and Automobiles – high octane opening scene!
2) Gally’s return
3) Teresa’s death – Unexpected

 

Cons –
1) 3 years after “The Scorch Trials” – too late
2) Walton Goggins as Lawrence – interesting character but a meaningless subplot.
3) All over – it’s a mediocre end of an epic beginning.
