Is 'Maze Runner: The Death Cure' worth seeing?

The highly anticipated "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" is finally in theaters, but reactions seem pretty mixed.

Then again, the dystopian teen blockbuster genre may be oversaturated these days, so it totally makes sense that film critics and even some moviegoers are over it. Just look at the "Divergent" series. Is the film worth seeing in theaters?

The film only holds a 44 percent rotten rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The Atlantic's David Sims writes:

The audience score is much higher at 79 percent. Some critics think the film serves its purpose as a teen dystopian trilogy. Entertainment Weekly's Leah Greenblatt:

As easy as it is to criticize the script’s broad strokes and improbable getaway schemes, it’s hard to argue with the lessons it imparts: Be loyal, be brave, leave no friend behind. And when things get too scary, there’s no shame in a greenscreen. B
