QUICK TAKE:
Sci-Fi/Action: A ragtag group of people tries to break into a walled city in order to save a friend who's been abducted by government forces intent on finding a cure to a virus that leaves its victims in a zombie-like state.
PLOT:
Having survived and escaped from a dystopian land known as The Glade that was surrounded by a monster-filled maze -- only to discover that it was all just part of a test conceived and run by Ava Paige (PATRICIA CLARKSON), the leader of WCKD (World Catastrophe Killzone Department), in hopes of finding a cure for a virus that turns humans into zombie-like creatures known as "cranks" -- a group of young people is in search mode for one of their own, Minho (KI HONG LEE).

He's being held captive by Ava and her head of security, Janson (AIDAN GILLEN), and being tested by Teresa (KAYA SCODELARIO), a former "glader" who now works for WCKD. That hasn't been sitting well with her former boyfriend and fellow glader, Thomas (DYLAN O'BRIEN), who, alongside resistance leader Vince (BARRY PEPPER), tried to pull off a hostage-freeing raid, only to discover that they that somehow missed Minho.

With the help of Jorge (GIANCARLO ESPOSITO) and his young adult-aged surrogate daughter, Brenda (ROSE SALAZAR), Thomas and his pals Newt (THOMAS BRODIE-SANGSTER) and Frypan (DEXTER DARDEN), head toward WCKD's last stronghold, an immense modern city surrounded by an equally immense and highly armed wall. Along the way, however, they're snatched by a group of men who turn out to be led by their former Glade rival, Gally (WILL POULTER), who they incorrectly believed had been killed.

He takes them to the leader of their resistance, Lawrence (WALTON GOGGINS), who's planning on an all-out assault on the city, but first helps get Thomas and his friends inside WCKD's headquarters. From that point on, they try to find and rescue Minho, all while Thomas ends up conflicted upon seeing Teresa again and Janson attempts to kill all of them.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the previous two "Maze Runner" films they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, language, and some thematic elements.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
