Most Overrated Movies

Many won't agree at first I know this. But watch one of these films again and think.

The Contenders: Page 3

41 X2: X-Men United

Fantastic film!

Overrated garbage - Th3Zm0nst3r

Underrated its actually great - VideoGamefan5

42 Les Miserables (2012)

This should have stayed a book. But instead we got big name actors singing like animals getting skinned alive - ArpstaAmy333

Just one word "Awful"

I just hate Musicals in movies. I don't know why. I...just hate it.

43 Jurassic World

What? I'm confused... What is going on... what. It's not near bad. Not amazing though

The movie is okay

Lmao, Jurassic World overrated? What retard put this on here

I'm sorry, but I didn't like this. Found it very clichéd. Please don't hurt me. - Swellow

44 Requiem for a Dream

It starts off like a bad student film, doesn't know what to do with the middle and just explodes at the end. Technically the last 25 minutes were extremely well done but we needed the previous hour to engage with the character and we just didn't have any of the character ark that we needed. As a result how are we supposed to care about these people. Maybe you did but I didn't.

Best thing about this film was Clint Mansell's score.

It is well made but it shoves the moral down the viewers throat

It was made for it's time.

If you watch the anime "Perfect Blue" first, you'll see where Aronofsky gets his shots and ideas from. - gaali121

45 Citizen Kane

I can't believe that this movie is still concidered as the greatest movie of all time. I love the work of Orson Welles but this movie is definitively not his best. By far are his movies like for instance " A touch of evil ", " The lady from Shangai " way much better. The latter two movies are even better in camera work and techniques, not to mention the story and the script. Why " Citizen Kane " is so overrated is really beyond me 'cause if you watch all the work that Orson Welles has done then this one is not that great. It's just a good movie that you will watch once or twice, but that's about it. It's certainly not his best and even some non-Orson Welles at that time were better. Too overrated for sure.

How the hell is this not number 1? So many people consider this to be the best movie of all time, and it has aged very poorly. What was once revolutionary is now just a movie with basic film techniques, terrible acting (except from Orson Welles), and a plot that is downright BORING.

How anybody compares this to the Godfather is beyond any form of reason.

Here's the thing about this movie. It's a great movie and I still consider Orson Welles to be brilliant. However, this movie was released in 1941. Time has passed and things have changed. Better movies have come out. People are still saying this is the best movie of all time, but it's not. It's great, but not the greatest.

Message to one and all who think this is overrated:
Citizen Kane came out 1941. I feel it to be still better than almost all (if not all) the movies released in 2016 and 17. The camera work is excellent. Minimalist, but great. The dialogue and screenplay are excellent. Ever seen that time lapse banter between Kane and his wife during breakfast? That's what I'm talking about. That still seems original, to this day. The character development of Kane, his stubborn self slowly coming out with age, and the payoff at the end... all this originality, at a time like that, is thoroughly deserving of praise to be called the greatest of all time (especially considering the time period). - gaali121

46 Suicide Squad

The people defending the movie says stupid although they never met then and it's just a movie and also it's a bunch of people who hate the movie so if someone says everyone says the movie sucks then you are stupid is very stupid although there could be someone who is stupid but everyone...WHY. It's like saying that the people who like porn are stupid although I like to say that's true but no it's like a professor who is very smart and wise but watches porn and also goes to people saying my little pony fans are annoying is also stupid if you say a all the fans of any kind of thing are stupid or even smart then you have to be embarrassed with your self.

I don't know how this can be considered overrated considered it's been butchered by audiences and critics alike

I don't get why there used to be such a Suicide Squad hype, I found it simply boring and really nothing special at all - Organ

47 Dr. Seuss' The Lorax

Taylor swift was in this she better stick to singing.

The memes aren't funny, same goes for shrek

Trust me if it weren't for meme culture, barely anyone would remember this (I can't even remember if it was really bad or just ok at best, it's forgettable! ) - Phillip873

48 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2

The series is already overrated

Best Harry Potter movie ever without a doubt. - JustinDanger

49 The Amazing Spider-Man

The Lizard is by far the worst developed villain ever put in a Spider-Man movie, he's working on cross-species genetics to try and regrow his arm, while also doing it because they think it can provide the cure for Norman Osborne who is dying, we never see Norman Osborne, not even once, they just keep telling Dr. Connors that he's dying. And they expect us to care about him. And plus, his big goal in this movie was regrowing his arm, so after that happens and he turns into the Lizard, the script has no idea what to do with him. So they just have him hide in the sewer and concoct the most idiotic plan a villain could have, turn all of New York into lizard creatures...WHERE DID THIS COME FROM!?! Seriously, he turns into the lizard, gets voices in his head JUST LIKE NORMAN OSBORNE IN THE FIRST SPIDER-MAN MOVIE, and randomly decides to turn the city into lizards

THE SPIDERMAN TRILOGY was fantastic and spiderman 3 underrated while the reboot amazing spiderman was mediocre and too overrated while amazing spiderman 2 was okay its still way too overrated while spiderman 3 is underrated.

As a Spider-Man fan, this film is such a disappointment. the film suffers with a poorly written script making the protagonist unlikable and the antagonist bland, poor pacing with scenes and unfunny jokes going for too long or important scenes going by in a flash, characters being featured for barely half the film until disappearing from the picture entirely, and trying and failing to hide the flaws of the film with slight references to the comic for the fans of the original source material. by the way, the sequel makes Spider-Man 3(2007) look like Spider-man 2(2004) in comparison - HensilFilms

It's not overrated its underrated

50 Bridesmaids
51 Django Unchained

This movie is incredible. This movie has everything you really want for just good old fashion entertainment. Because when you think about the plot, it's very simple but genius.

Like every Tarantino movie, a lack of originality. It's just a copy of the many Italian westerns made in the sixties.

This movie isn't as good as everyone claims it to be

Quite honestly, any movie by Tarintino should be on this list! He's an awful director with "NO" imagination or vision. Like Oliver Stone with Platoon, he made it on the map early with Resivoir Dogs... Ever since then he has directed nothing but garbage. You can throw Spike Lee in this catagory also. Lee, Stone, Tarintino all all a collection of talentless idiots!

52 Fight Club

Clearly those who dislike this movie are too stupid to understand it. It's a masterpiece and should be commemorated for being amazing.

Nice to know I'm not the only one who thought this movie was stupid, just had a cool name

Too much violence for nothing. Pure sensationalism. What a bore!

It's a great mind twisting movie,but movies like shutter island,memento,the prestige should get same rating as this movie cause they are more mind twisting than this movie,I think they are better than this movie - zxm

53 The Social Network

I can't believe that they nominated Jesse Eisenberg at the Oscars for this movie. This actor is so annoying to hear ( Always speaking too fast like he's on meth in every movie he does ). The movie itself didn't give something new or revealing. It was too slow and after the movie you will ask yourself " what's the point? ". OVERRATED!

I like this movie because Andrew Garfield

Jesse Eisenberg shouldn't even be called an "actor". If he is one, then my pet dog is clearly superior to him. - gaali121

A movie about facebook. Seriously? - Himalayansalt

54 Divergent

This movie is honestly so similar to the hunger games that you could watch this movie instead to save time. Overrated garbage

Terrible crap - ikerevievs

THIS IS COMPLETE CRAP

55 The Notebook

I think this movie really doesn't belong in this list. It's a movie because of the story that you like or don't like, but the film itself is very well done. And the acting of Rachel McAdams is certainly not overrated.

Don't find it as good as others do but yea it's A BIT overrated since people treat it like God created it. - AlphaQ

56 American Hustle

I love Amy Adams and Christian Bale in this movie but I hated Jennifer Lawrence with her annoying voice and terrible accent ( it's her natural voice ). The movie was ok the first hour but after that it becomes a little boring, confused and not very realistic.

This got sooo much hype before it came out because of it's top-notch cast, but frankly it wasn't that good. The story was only okay, although the acting was pretty good. That has nothing to do with the movie though, it just had good actors...

Whatchable because of Amy Adams. But if she was not in the movie it would be very doubtful.

Nothing against Jennifer Lawerence, but she ruined the movie for me.

57 Slumdog Millionaire

Its very annoying how they highlight poverty in India as if it does not exist in the rest of the world. Oh and boo hoo poor so called minority being bullied by the big bad majority.

I don't know a more undeserving Academy Award winner. Just terrible, how someone can like this is beyond me.

OK, it wasn't the worst ever but it won too many Oscars. American Academy Awards became real FLOP - Alexandr

It got way too many awards. Bs story. It could have been a Bollywood movie.

58 How to Train Your Dragon 2

This movie is garbage. From now on, it shall be known as How to Kill your Dragon 2, because it is dead to me.
-KyubeyFuel

59 Zootopia

While this movie isn't terrible per say it unfortunately tends hammer the message down your throat, as a result it comes off as very preachy and a bit annoying. What also doesn't help when it come's to how overrated it is, is that there's a gay couple (look it up it's sadly been confirmed) and we all know how much people love campaigning for gay rights and $&@!. And how people lose their minds if someone says something negative about gays. Even though gay marriage is disgusting and wrong and gays are sub human. (they aren't even real people) these are just one of few reasons why it's overrated hopefully overtime more and more people will see it's glaring flaws because while it's not a terrible movie it could have been better.

Oh Disney, why did you make a movie for those Tumblr social justice brats?

The time it took for this movie to become overrated was quicker than Frozen

Jason Bateman's sardonic sarcasm and the Don Corleone cameo are enough to qualify this movie as a classic.
And I see that many people seem to be losing their fragile egos over this innocent movie. - gaali121

60 Sin City

I didn't have as much of a problem with actors. The movie itself is just the dumbest thing you could possibly write. The camerawork is great though. But the story... Wait a minute, there's a story here? I thought it just guys who smoked too many cigarettes and Japanese ninja goddess Sonic carhops beating the snot out of people. Very artistic, as long as it's in black and white.

Really really boring movie, too much narrating

Why does everybody love this movie it sucks the story is confusing this should be number 1

This is an excellent atmospheric film. I guess people don' like such films anymore. They need definitive spoonfed storylines. Learn to enjoy the style sometimes, people! - gaali121
