The Scorch Trials Rant

SPOILERS IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE MOVIE OR READ THE BOOK
You have been warned

ALSO SPOILERS FOR THE DEATH CHRE



Ok so personally The Scorch Trials was my FAVORITE book of the series. I think I loved the plot and new characters introduced and the shocks throughout the story. When the movie ca,e out I was SO excited to see it! So I watched the movie and I was a bit disappointed p. Don't get me wrong the movie was amazing and entertaining! However there were MANY flaws. Now I would sit and tell you all of them but I'm just gonna say a few I think are really important because I'm sure most of you know them.

1. Brenda gets bit by a Crank
Ok so first of all, Brenda is immune and the disease is spread through the air, not being bit like a zombie, even though it still could be spread like that

And also when they got to the right arm (Which they shouldn't have gotten to until The Death Cure) she got "cured" temporarily

This gives me a whole new perspective of Newt. Will he actually die? He can be "cured" so how will he lose his sanity and die of Thomas?

Opinions? Comments?

I know there are many other flaws but I just wanted to state the one I think effects the story the most.

Your right does that mean that if your immune that you can't get infected if you get bit like a zombie or only to air.

Well I'm not sure. In the books Brenda is immune but the only way the disease is spread throughout the movie is by getting bit. Newt and Winston are both not immune and Winston got bit and became a crank while Newt is fine still. Brenda in the movie is not immune but gets "Cured" which screws up the whole thing.

Also, there's a complication with the death of Jack, an extra who was only shown a few times. The thing is that he just kinda disappears and is never seen again. While his death wasn't necessarily important to the plot, it's just kinda weird that it happened.
