Top 10 Movie Sequels That Killed Their Franchise


The Top Ten

1 Batman & Robin

The first two original movies were great the third was tolerable the fourth movie completely killed the Batman franchise until Christopher Nolan revived the Batman Franchise years later. - egnomac

2 The Last Airbender

The Last Airbender was suppose to be the first in a trilogy but because the first movie sucked so badly they completely pulled the plug on the franchise all together. - egnomac

3 Little Fockers
4 Police Academy 7: Mission to Moscow
5 Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

I think they managed to patch up by the time Revenge of the Sith was out. But before that, ugh. - PositronWildhawk

6 The Matrix Revolutions
7 Spider-Man 3
8 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3
9 Jurassic Park III
10 Shrek Forever After

My younger brother was 11 when this was out. He really wanted to see it, so we did as a family. We were all very disappointed. - PositronWildhawk

The Contenders

11 Jaws: The Revenge

I think every Jaws sequel was pretty much really crappy, I mean out of all Jaws sequels, this one has a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes.

This is known as one of the worst movies in the world and killed the series.

12 Dragonball: Evolution
13 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
14 Ice Age: The Meltdown V 1 Comment
15 The Neverending Story 3: Escape from Fantasia
16 Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare
17 The Land Before Time XIII: The Wisdom of Friends
18 Shrek the Third

This was worse than Shrek Forever After.

19 Ice Age: Continental Drift

As bad as this movie was, it unfortunately didn't kill the series since a 5th Ice Age movie is coming soon

Manny, THREE WORDS. Worst. Father. Ever

20 Superman IV: The Quest for Peace
