Movies that Should Have Been Good but Weren't


The Top Ten

1 Suicide Squad

Jared Leto's joker was bad, he was trying too hard to be like Heath Ledger's joker but it didn't work and he was only in it for like 10 minutes. - BrianScott01

I actually thought this movie was pretty good! It's not a masterpiece but I didn't mind it. - DCfnaf

This Movie Could Have Been Great But It Wasn't It Was Very Bad It Ruined So Many DC Characters Including The Joker - christangrant

So many bad, bad things.

2 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

This Was A Very Big Dissapointment Because The First Movie Was Ok So This Movie Should Have Been Better But It Wasn't In Fact It Was Worse So Many Bad Things About This Movie - christangrant

3 Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

This Was An Ok Movie But It Wasn't As Good As It Should Have Been If You Want A Better Movie Like This One Watch Captain America Civil War Now that's A Great Movie - christangrant

4 The Amazing Spider-Man

You'd think that a reboot made so shortly after an original franchise would try a little harder to differentiate itself from the first series' starter film (which was only 10 years old at the time). The movie's a carbon copy of 2002's 'Spider-Man', albeit done worse. - BKAllmighty

5 Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

One of the biggest disappointments in film history. - cjWriter1997

Awful, But Attack Of the clones and rogue one are worse - VideoGamefan5

6 Fantastic 4 (2015)

Went to see it in theatres during its opening weekend. There were five people in the theatre, including me and my two friends. I knew before it started that it was going to be terrible, and I hadn't seen or heard any reviews for the film yet. Wasn't surprised when I saw it had a 9% on RT. - BKAllmighty

One Of The Worst Superhero Movies Period The Ones In 2005 And 2007 Were Better Than This One - christangrant

7 Terminator Salvation

So Terminator 3 While Dissapointing Was Still A Good Movie This Movie Was The First Terminator In The Future And They Failed At Creating A Great Movie It Doesn't Even Have Arnold Schwarzenegger In It - christangrant

8 Judge Dredd
9 Iron Man 2

It's OK, just not great. Same as what I can say about Godfather 3.

I definitely agree that it's among the weaker entries in the MCU but I don't think it's terrible. It's a downgrade from IM1, but not a disaster. - BKAllmighty

10 Superman III

The Contenders

11 Minions

The first movie was good, the second was great, but this was a excuse

12 Star Wars: The Force Awakens

To Be Honest, This Was A Great Movie. - masoncarr2244

It's lacking in originality and creativity, Plus it ruined the concept of the Force and added characters we didn't even need.

The death scene was the worst way to lose a character, and it just sucked up the money.
Way to go JJ Abes.

13 Shrek the Third

Horrible movie - slushy

14 Spider Man 3

This movie is similar to Terminator 3 while disappointing its still better than The Amazing Spiderman and its bad sequel - christangrant

I thought this movie was pretty enjoyable. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

15 Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

This Is The Worst Star Wars Movie This Is Worse Than The Phantom Menace - christangrant

16 Pixels
17 The Lion King

Seriously? I’m guessing you’re either over 45 or under 25.. Otherwise you would have realized how great this film and the impact it had on young audiences it was intended for.

Whoa, I think someone really hated Lion King. Adding it on every list. Just saw a lot of items related to lion king on previous list. - zxm

Yep. I hate this movie so much, it bugs me that it's so praised compared to other (better in my opinion) films. I will try to give TLK the negative reputation it deserves so that everyone knows what kind of story/movie it REALLY is.

18 The Godfather, Part III
19 Superman IV: The Quest for Peace
20 Punisher: War Zone

This reboot doesn't live up to The Punisher (2004) my main problem with this movie is that it's just boring - christangrant

21 Tom and Jerry: The Movie

It could have been great if it weren't for these things
1 The plot
2 Tom and Jerry Talking
3 Bad characters - christangrant

22 Passengers

Talk about missed potential. All the pieces were there. Great lead actors, beautiful visuals, a nice soundtrack, an original premise that is actually engaging, sounds awesome.
Too bad the final product sucks. The story goes in all the wrong directions and the dialgoue is often cringeworthy.

23 The Girl on the Train
24 Hulk
25 Matrix Reloaded

This movie is regular, but at least is better than Matrix Revolutions

26 The Amazing Spider-Man 2
27 Man of Steel

When this is the best movie in your new franchise and it's incredibly polarizing, you've got a problem. What we were promised was a retelling and reinvention of the classic Superman origin but what we got was mindless action and convoluted characters.

28 Iron Man 3

Better than 2 but still eh especially following up the Avengers. The big problem with this movie this movie is the narrative structure and twist.

29 Alien 3
30 Thor
31 Batman Forever
32 Batman and Robin
33 The Good Dinosaur
34 Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
35 Mouse Hunt
36 The Angry Birds Movie
37 Hotel Transylvania 2

I don't like this movie! - darthvadern

38 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Awful - VideoGamefan5

39 Spawn
40 Warcraft
41 Dumb and Dumber To

We've waited many years for a sequel to one of the best comedies of all time. And all we got was pure garbage!

42 R.I.P.D.
43 Howard the Duck
44 Son of the Mask
45 Battlefield Earth
46 The Blues Brothers 2000
47 Mortal Kombat

I honestly didn't like this movie. Bad effects, overdramatic acting from Sonya, and absolutely no gore at all! It just comes off as odd for a Mortal Kombat movie to have a PG-13 rating.

48 It (1990)
49 The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies
50 Dungeons and Dragons
