Top 10 Most Disappointing Fourth Installments in Movie Franchises

The Top Ten

1 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1

This film wasn't disappointing. It's Twilight, a hate-bait film, and most people were expecting this film to be bad and were ready to roast upon it. Though in retrospect, it is the worst film in the franchise. - CrimsonShark

2 The Next Karate Kid

I'm just gonna be glad that we have Cobra Kai to continue the franchise. - CrimsonShark

3 Transformers: Age of Extinction
4 Batman & Robin

Mmm ripping my list idea off mm - iliekpiez

By that logic, everyone making a best movie list is ripping off Heather, the creator of the list best movies of all time - B1ueNew

Dissapointing dosen't even begin to describe this abomination. - egnomac

5 Fast & Furious

Hadn't the franchise become pointless by then? - PositronWildhawk

6 Superman IV: The Quest for Peace
7 Home Alone 4 Taking Back the House

Don't say it's the McCallister family if you're not going to have the original actors, or have some of the characters be younger, it makes no sense for a sequel (Kevin went from 12 years old to 8, Buzz from 16 to 11). And they called Harry "Marv" in this one showing how they clearly didn't watch the original, and some of the traps Kevin used like the human aquarium in the bathroom were unrealistic (albeit in a so-dumb-it's-funny way). - SailorSedna

Ok, just gonna say that if you're gonna take the time to make a sequel, DON'T REPLACE YOUR CAST! Ok, enough said cya! :/

8 Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
9 Resident Evil: Afterlife
10 Alien Resurrection

I like this one - blackflower

It's a lot better than the third one, nowhere near as good as the first two though - RustyNail

The Newcomers

? Men In Black: International
? Godzilla vs. Mothra

The Contenders

11 Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

Well, in a way, as The Phantom Menace was the fourth Star Wars film released in cinematic order. - CrimsonShark

12 Terminator: Salvation

I'm sure the only good thing about it was the shoot-em-up game I played in my arcade. - SailorSedna

13 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
14 Bionicle: The Legend Reborn

After three great movies, this was a total disappointment. Inferior animation that made the characters look more like toys fighting instead of people, so-so voice acting (only redeeming one being Jim Cummings as Ackar and Marla Sokoloff was alright as Kiina) a stupid concept of fighting tournaments? What happened the quests to discover things, fight against evil enemies and saving the beloved city for the Matoran, Toa and Turaga? Instead, we have this, and it was one reason I stopped reading the comics. This also sadly was the last Bionicle film ever made before Lego ended the first generation on a whimper on 2010 and then did a very abysmal failure of a Generation Two/reboot five years later. - SailorSedna

15 Shrek Forever After

This whole movie was even worse than the 3rd shrek movie and ruined a lot of shrek for me

16 The Final Destination
17 Toy Story 4

It hasn't even came out yet - blackflower

18 Scream 4
19 Scary Movie 4
20 Saw IV
21 Jaws the Revenge
22 Avengers: Endgame
