The Scorch Trails stumbles and completely cancels the existence of the first film. Why was there a Maze in the first place? I feel like The Maze Runner is just an overly elaborate prologue to The Scorch Trails and this film is just episodic. It’s just running away from point A to B, B to C, C to E and so on and so forth. The narrative is exactly like a video-game, and that’s not a bad thing, or is it?
