The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure were the second and third films in the Maze Runner film series, which gained a lot of popularity over the years. It did well among the film adaptations of books to screens at the time and is based on the James Dashner young adult novel series of the same name. You can watch it all for free online right here.
The Gladers, youths who were trapped in the Glade, a location with thick, high walls and predatory creatures beyond them, are the focus of The Maze Runner. All of the newcomers had no memory of anything from earlier. With the exception of two—Thomas, who remembered his name, and Teresa, the lone girl sent and the last to enter the Glade, who remembered Thomas.
Unable to remember who he is, a teenage boy awakens in a subterranean elevator to find himself surrounded by other young men in the “Glade,” a big grassy region surrounded by high stone walls. The “Gladers” have established a crude society, and each performs specific roles. The child discovers that the only way out is through a sizable Maze that surrounds them. Designated Runners look for a way out of the Maze throughout the day and return before the entrance closes at night.
The boy recalls his name is Thomas following a competitive bout with Gally. Ben, a Runner who had been stung and rendered delirious by a Griever, one of the techno-organic creatures that prowl the Maze at night, attacks him the following day. As a direct result of his acts, Ben is compelled into the Maze and left to perish, combined with the fact that there is no treatment for his illness.
The following morning, Alby, the leader, and Minho, the lead Runner, follow Ben’s path inside the Maze once more. Late in the day, Minho returns dragging a stung Alby, but they are unable to make it to the entrance before it closes.

Watching The Maze Runner
The Maze Runner is available to stream on Amazon Instant Video, iTunes, Google Play, and Vudu by renting or buying.
You may buy or rent the “Maze Runner” trilogy online.
The “Maze Runner” film trilogy is one of many in this genre of young adult dystopia. All three movies have been finished, have been played in theaters, and are currently accessible online. All three are not available on any subscription streaming service, but they can be rented for $3.99 apiece on a number of different websites, including Amazon, YouTube, and Apple. But if you want to watch it again, you can get them on Amazon for $4.99 apiece.
Critics believe that “The Maze Runner,” the first book in the series, is the strongest of the group. It also features Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who is well-known for playing the little child in “Love Actually,” Jojen Reed in “Game of Thrones,” and the chess cowboy in “The Queen’s Gambit,” in addition to Dylan O’Brien and Kaya Scodelario. The Scorch Trials, the second installment of the series, is also accessible on Hulu, but only with the Live TV add-on.
Giancarlo Esposito, who is likely most recognized for his superb villainous performances in both “Breaking Bad” and “The Mandalorian,” joins the cast of “The Scorch Trials” despite its flaws. “The Death Cure,” the third movie, wraps up the plot that has so far developed to include a lethal, zombie-flying virus.
After watching those three films, viewers can learn more about the plot by reading the two prequel novels.
