Top 10 Most Disappointing Fourth Installments in Movie Franchises

The Top Ten

1 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 Product Image

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 The Next Karate Kid Product Image

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

3 Transformers: Age of Extinction Transformers: Age of Extinction Product Image
4 Batman & Robin Batman & Robin Product Image

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 Fast & Furious Product Image

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

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

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

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 Contenders

11 Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace Product Image

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

12 Terminator: Salvation Terminator: Salvation Product Image

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 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Product Image
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 Shrek Forever After Product Image

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