Acting
Actors did their job here with excellence.
I could not tell whose performance was better among all as each and every character played their part with immense depth.

Direction
Direction was one similar to the previous part. i have only one complain with the director that is repeated use of OTS shots. Other than that he has done an awesome job here

Dialogues
Nothing great about the dialogues. I guess no importance was given to this part of the movie.
Screenplay
Screenplay was fascinating.

VFX were great but its nothing new for Hollywood. They are been doing an awesome job in terms of vfx for a decade now.

Editing
Editing could have been better. There was a scene where our lead caharacter gets high at some rave party club kinda place,the entire scene cud have been droped. Also i felt the climax of the movie was too stretched.

Story
Movie continues from where it was left at the first part.Thomas finds his friends and himself in a dorm with other immunes. He later finds out it is controlled by WCKD (world catastrophe killzone department) i.e. "the bad guys". The movie revolves around their escape where they try to reach to the "Right Arm" i,e, the good guys. During this journey they meet many interesting characters.Movie ends at a very high note where WKCD destroys the entire base of The Right Arms but some how most of the characters survive the ambush and take an oath to take their revenge. 

Overall
The movie in terms of acting and writing is a job done good.But VFX makes a mark here.

If you are a SCI-FI fan,you would like the movie.

Verdict
SCI-FI and thriller fans would love it.
My rating is 4/5.
