Top Ten Films With the Worst CGI

Sometimes the CGI in films looks as realistic as a claim that you can resurrect dead squirrels with your mind. Here, I think, are typical examples.

The Top Ten

1 Birdemic Birdemic Product Image
2 Foodfight! Foodfight! Product Image

god this movie in general makes me sick. The CGI animation in the first Toy Story did not age well, but it was actually acceptable in the time it was released and looks god-tier compared to the animation in this movie. Plus the first Toy Story has a well-written plot while Foodfight just consists of inappropriate jokes, and unfunny gross-out humour that will make you squeamish. - Hanjax70

This is the only logical explanation of this movie's horrible CGI:

20-30 years ago, a drunk retard who just took 100kg of acid, cocaine, meth, and laundry detergent slipped on a computer. Then, the computer fell into a trash compactor, which accidentally was shipped onto an airplane's cargo hold. A bird flew into one of the engines, and then the plane exploded. The computer flew out the plane and into the plane's other engine. The broken pieces of the computer then fell into a volcano.

Dozens of years later, a team of archeologists found the broken computer. They downloaded the crappy CGI file which accidentally got leaked onto Netflix and Hulu.

But seriously, this movie's CGI is terrible.

The cgi is horrible in this one. The characters are so bright, and move so fast, it looks like their trying to dance. Also, the plot is like toy story, but grocery store themed. This one probably should be 1

I haven't seen the movie yet but it looks terrible

3 Descent (2005)

Not to be confused with "Descent" (2007) or "The Descent" (2005). This is by far one of the worst movies that I have seen, and the CG is simply laughable. - PositronWildhawk

4 The Lawnmower Man The Lawnmower Man Product Image

The CGI has aged horribly in Lawnmower Man. - BurnAux

Can you beilve that this came out 1 year before the original Jurassic Park?

5 Boa vs. Python Boa vs. Python Product Image

The scariest thing about this film is that people thought it was a good idea. - PositronWildhawk

6 The Incredible Hulk (2008) The Incredible Hulk (2008) Product Image

Are you sure you're not getting this movie mixed up with the 2003 Hulk movie? Because that movie had the crap CGI.

Incredibly mediocre. Hulk in this movie looks so awful, that by even putting it on the screen and expecting people to pay to see it is an insult to the intelligence of the viewing audience. I'd honestly rather watch and Lee's Hulk. - TechnoTarantino

This film was absolutely stupid. So very, very stupid. And boring as hell. I just don't see what my friends and family see. But it would probably have stood a slither of a chance if the CGI was any good. - PositronWildhawk

Epic movie this website is bull

7 The Scorpion King The Scorpion King Product Image

The CGI on Dwayne johnson is probably some of the worst I've ever seen in my life. he looks more like a character out of a PS2 game. how did they not finish the effects on him before this movie was released?

The whole thing looks ridiculous. No further remarks. - PositronWildhawk

The cgi was so bad I started laughing when they showed "the Rock"

Why did "The Rock" look like he was from the original Toy Story? - Cyri

8 Cats (2019)

This movie is downright creepy. And it's rated the worst movie of 2019 - Dvafan2

9 Avatar Avatar Product Image

The cgi in this movie was mesmerizing LOL. shouldn't be on this list. - DarkKnight2005

People falsify their liking for this film. - PositronWildhawk

What avatar is doing here? are you kidding me? it has amazing cgi.

Most of the time it looks like I'm just looking at computers. It's all computers.

10 Skyline Skyline Product Image

This. Was crap. I'd get more believable special effects if I were to spray hot sauce and throw vegetables to give the impression of one of those aliens sucking out somebody's brain. And the script was no better. - PositronWildhawk

Weird how the effects were better than the script itself

The Newcomers

? Alvin & the Chipmunks Alvin & the Chipmunks Product Image

Wasn’t the greatest CGI ever

? Ratatoing Ratatoing Product Image

Ugly CGI

The Contenders

11 Dragon Ball: Evolution Dragon Ball: Evolution Product Image
12 Cowboys & Aliens Cowboys & Aliens Product Image

It was a good film in terms of the plot, but the visual effects are those which I just couldn't take seriously. - PositronWildhawk

13 Scooby-Doo: The Movie Scooby-Doo: The Movie Product Image

I cannot stand the live action Scooby Doo movie! Both me and my whole family went to see it that night when it premiered when I was 6 and my sister was 4 and both of us hated it! But especially my sister! My sister who was once a scooby doo fanatic once she watched this Scooby Doo was never brought up from her ever again.

Terrible. They look like rubber people. It was the best thing about the film though... Gave us something to talk about when the film ended. - Britgirl

Please, Scooby doo, just stay animated and get your fake looking CGI dogs out of the film industry. - Skullkid755

Not to mention that the rabbit monsters all look the same. I guess they could only afford one design for these creatures.

14 Godzilla (1998) Godzilla (1998) Product Image
15 Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over Product Image
16 Green Lantern Green Lantern Product Image
17 Lawnmower Man 2 Lawnmower Man 2 Product Image
18 Hulk (2003) Hulk (2003) Product Image
19 Deep Blue Sea Deep Blue Sea Product Image
20 The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl Product Image

The effects in this movie literally made me wanna puke, what is the deal with all of Robert Rodriguez's movies having these vomit educing effects?

Never seen it, just clips and looked like one of the weirdest movies of the 00s. Not the worst one of the weirdest. Some people wanted a sequel, oh yes Sharkman and Lavawoman. If they want to play their silly kiddy roles.

This movie was a bunch of BS

21 X-Men Origins: Wolverine X-Men Origins: Wolverine Product Image
22 The Mummy Returns The Mummy Returns Product Image
23 Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones Product Image

The CGI Is Not So Good In This One
Seriously George!?

24 Tron Tron Product Image

Who added this to the list? This was the first movie to ever use CGI.

Show some respect for this visually stunning masterpiece by taking it off the list.
