Transported to a remote fortified outpost, Thomas and his fellow teenage Gladers find themselves in trouble after uncovering a diabolical plot from the mysterious and powerful organization WCKD. With help from a new ally, the Gladers stage a daring escape into the Scorch, a desolate landscape filled with dangerous obstacles and crawling with the virus-infected Cranks. The Gladers only hope may be to find the Right Hand, a group of resistance fighters who can help them battle WCKD.
I liked the fact that the movie is played completely in the perspective of Thomas just like in the books. I did not like the fact that there is little plot development in the movie. I would recommend this movie to others. The absence of tobacco did not in fact effect the movie at all. The absence of tobacco made the characters more believable because this dystopian society is messed up enough without tobacco related illness (cancer etc) The makers of the movie probably decided to leave the presence of tobacco out of the movie because the plot would be affected also the presence of tobacco could have been overlooked because maybe the makers personal views may involve anti tobacco.
