Most Overrated Movies on IMDb's Top 250


The Top Ten

1 The Dark Knight

Like it the first time because the Joker (overrated himself as he has no emotional depth, just laughs in every scene) but the second time; actually playing attention to the story, it was just plain silly.

I just didn't see what all the hype was about and Christian bale's character was rather boring!

A movie that is awesome but a disgrace for batman!...considering this to be one of the best movies of all time is ABSURD!

Not bad at all, but fourth best film of all time? Hell no.

2 The Dark Knight Rises

The worst movie on imdb top 250.

Terrible film!

3 The Shawshank Redemption

It's a great movie, but I don't think it belongs in the top spot.

Very good movie, but kind surprising its on top. - zxm

Shouldn't even be on 250; its average movie, one time view only - dubbelvla

The fans of this film are the most annoying bastards on Earth. If you go onto reddit and say something bad about it, the Shawshank fanboys will jump down your throat.

4 Marvel's The Avengers

I just don't understand the overpowering popularity of this film. Yes, it is an entertaining summer popcorn movie with lots of action and special effects. But is it really of great quality that deserves to be compared to classic award-winners? I just don't see it.

This movie sucked. I hated this movie. A horrible film.

Feel like watching Transformers: Dark Of The Moon twin brother. Too much CGI for me sometimes makes any recent film include this one cheap and crap.

This movie doesn't deserved to be in top 250 but its 7-12 years old cringey fandom just can not understand it.

5 Scarface
6 Django Unchained

I'm really surprised that this is in the top 250. - PositronWildhawk

7 Citizen Kane

Worst ending ever..Rosebud is negligible.

8 The Godfather

I bet you all the same people who say Godfather is overrated have seen all Adam Sandler movies and rated half of them 10/10 - farckashkun

This movie was great but far not the greatest ever - Alexandr

I fell asleep in the first half hour. BORING

0 out of 10

9 American Beauty

I don't think this film is very good at all.

10 Kill Bill: Volume 1

It's weird that many similar films made before this one aren't even placed that high on imdb. Not that they deserve to. This dumb movie don't deserve to either. I guess this one was placed higher than those similar films because this film had a blonde woman as the main character and those similar movies didn't.

The Contenders

11 Pulp Fiction

This did not entertain me in the slightest.

The most overrated piece of useless trash I've ever seen - Alexandr

More like T.V. movie for me. Plain boring

12 Amelie

This Movie is really boring! For Sure it's an overrated movie

13 How to Train Your Dragon
14 Interstellar

Christopher Nolan is the most overrated director on IMDb.

Christopher Nolan gets way too much credit from his fans.

15 The Matrix

Does anyone still care bout it no Kay then

16 Zootopia

Frozen deserved to be on the Top 250 more than this terrible Shark Tale rip-off aimed at furries. - PerfectImpulseX

Awful SJW Crap

17 Black Swan
18 Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
19 Inception

Pretty good and fun to watch. But what is just listed a second ago is why Inception should not be the 13 greatest movie ever it is more of an action movie.

Good movie, but overrated by unintelligent morons.

Pretty good but not the 13th best movie ever.

The film is weird, but that don't make it a masterpiece.

20 Fight Club
