Most Overrated Movies of 2016


The Top Ten

1 Arrival

Overrated for what? Because the leading actress ( Amy Adams ) wasn't nominated at the Oscars when she did in fact deseved to be nominated? Because it's too slow? Because there's not enough action, shooting and blood? Can someone tell me why it's too overrated ( and ranked number 1 on this list ) because all the arguments I wrote are arguments for stupid little kids who aren't able to watch good movies. So, what is the reason?

That hater Is hypocritical Because he Says this movie Is dull but yet he likes suicide squad - VideoGamefan5

Decent but not great. Should of got only 64%

No, this is underrated!

2 Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice

I have never, so aggressively, NOT wanted to see a movie so bad. I think it's the stupidest idea ever, for a few reasons...

1. Batman and Superman are ALLIES! They'd NEVER fight each other.
2. Is it really a contest? Of COURSE Superman's gonna win, he's invincible! And I know about the kryptonite stuff, but where are you gonna FIND it?

Anyway, please don't hate, just my opinion - Co0lk1d25

My god how is this considered the best movie? Honestly the plot was kind of scattered around in my opinion and all superman had to do to stop batman was say "Martha". OH COOL THEIR MOMS HAVE THE SAME NAME NOW they're TEAMING UP

The worst action movie ever created directed by one of the worst directors.

3 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

This is painfully overrated. It's so boring and unnecessary. - DCfnaf

This should be number 1! Unlike arrival, at least arrival was good! Rouge one is a painful peice of crap! More overrated than the stupid life of pets!

Should be numero uno.

4 La La Land

Why does this have to win so may awards..? Why do musicals get the awards..? I don't get it. This is incredibly overrated for sure. - AlphaQ

It always wins the awards.

5 Suicide Squad

It wasn't "that bad", but it wasn't that good either. The plot line was funny, but could have been wayyy better. It almost seemed cliche. But it sort of bugs me that Harley Quinn didn't show up in a movie until Suicide Squad, and her being overdone in schools, and young kids made the movie so overrated. Like I said, not 100%, but not 0%. Maybe a 60% or so. - cat_f

I have absolutely NO idea why Suicide Squad is considered "overrated" considering most people I've seen and from the reviews/critiques I've read, it's hated. By the majority. - BDOG375

Its Just An Overrated Pile Of Junk - VideoGamefan5

Suicide squad is underrated, I don't know where all this ''this movie is overrated! '' bull-crap comes from, I mean give us an explained reason why this movie is over appreciated, almost everyone hates it and is considered to be one of the worst superhero movies of all time. you know what I'm willing to bet the reason to say that it's ''said'' overrated is so that you can hate it more

6 Finding Dory

This move has the most overrated storyline - VideoGamefan5

Yeah, it is overrated. - AlphaQ

I hate this movie - VideoGamefan5

WE GET IT, VIDEOGAMEFAN5! YOU HATE THIS MOVIE! WE RESPECT YOUR OPINION! - The Ultimate Daredevil, who views Videogamefan5 as quarter-infamous for his hatred towards Finding Dory

7 Zootopia

I think we all know who put this on the list

Most overrated cartoon on earth. While it's good, it's overrated by the furries and man-child.

Anyone who thinks this is overrated is a small-minded bigot who doesn't know what's good!

Psych! I don't like this movie at all, let alone think it's anywhere in the league of, say, Beauty and the Beast, the Toy Story Trilogy, or The Lion King. But the fans sure have decided that anyone who doesn't think it's the Best Disney Movie Of All Time is a bigot.

Get this off the list

8 Warcraft

This movie sucks - VideoGamefan5

9 Sing

Yes! This is in the number 9th spot! All we need is secret life of pets for number 3, sing for number 2 & rouge one for number 1!

Overrated just like any Illumination movie. Boring,unlikeable and rude characters. Yet some people fall for this crap and worship this movie like it's the best. I mean overpriced cheaply made merchandise is just one red flag. People should not fall any of the crap illumination makes.

SO Overrated - VideoGamefan5

This is ' trash! SCREW THIS FILM! - AlphaQ

10 Assassin's Creed

It isn't even out yet punk - VideoGamefan5

Ok. This is EXTREMELY underrated (thanks again critics...) it's disappointing but overrated? NaH. - AlphaQ

The Contenders

11 The Angry Birds Movie

Angry Birds' popularity has already run its course, no need to rehash it with a movie that probably won't be very good. - Doom

This is underrated - epictoonsfan1

This Movie Is OK To Me - VideoGamefan5

12 The Divergent Series: Allegiant

After Insurgent, no one even cared about this film series. Hunger Games ripoff... - AlphaQ

13 Norm of the North

A Very Very Stupid Film - VideoGamefan5

I dislike this movie, but it's not overrated.

It's not overrated but it's the worst animated thing existing. - AlphaQ

This was complete and utter brain-rotting garbage. Kids and adults alike would be repulsed. Lackluster, unoriginal, and forgettable.
Don't waste your time with this cinematic trash.

14 Hacksaw Ridge

Who would have predicted that Mel Gibson could ever be in Oscar contention again? Well he is. For this fairly average movie.

This is only mediocre, it's way too awarded like La La Land. - AlphaQ

15 Dirty Grandpa
16 Ratchet & Clank

This is actually a good film to me - Carsrule300

17 Ice Age: Collision Course

This Movie Is Awful, Enough Said - VideoGamefan5

18 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
19 Deadpool

This was my favourite movie of 2016 and was way better than that so called overhyped crap DC disappointments Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad

These are my personal scores

1. Deadpool- 8.5/10

2. Doctor Strange- 8.2/10

3. Captain America Civil War- 8.1/10

4. X-men Apocalypse- 7.0/10

5. Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice- 5.5/10

6. Suicide Squad- 5/10

.Zack Snyder messed up BvS. I was so excited about this movie and was damn disappointed. I can't believe the man who made awesome movies like Man of Steel and Watchmen ended up with this.

This movie was sooo overrated that I'm flabbergasted that it's racking up award nominations. Yes, it was funny. It was funny to see Ryan Reynolds break the fourth wall. That's all it had going for it. It was such a badly written film that I cannot believe that so many people praised it to the sky.

This is just like guardians of the galaxy, a terrible and overrated marvel comedy movie, that tries to be funny but rarely is, and mostly fails on every level with poorly written story, boring acting, and terrible dialogue

It's great, deserves the love it gets. - AlphaQ

20 Moonlight

Not a bad movie by any means, but I don't think it was worthy of Best Picture, as I felt the story didn't really go anywhere. I also don't get why Naomie Harris was nominated for Supporting Actress, as I found her performance a bit hammy. Mahershala Ali was great, the best part in fact, but unfortunately, he disappears after the first act, so that kinda ruined the movie for me a bit. I see why it's an important film, but it wasn't as great as I thought it was going to be.

Nah, this did not deserve 99 on RT or Best Picture. - AlphaQ

It only won oscars so that the Academy could reverse it's "oscars so white" backlash

21 Trolls

This Movie Just Sucks, Just When You Take A Weird Hobo Moron (Justin Timberlake) Alongside One Of The Worst Singers Of Today (Ariana Grande) You Get This - VideoGamefan5

22 Captain America: Civil War

It should be number one. - RobertdDowneyRobertDowneyJr

Should Be Number One, It's A Good Film, But It's Fanbase Is Awful - VideoGamefan5

This movie is the most overrated movie I have ever seen. Critics are praising it too much and film gets too much credit which it doesn't deserve. Actually it is a very flawed film filled with tons of plotholes. At best it is better than Iron Man 3.

Any movie marvel makes other than Spider-Man 3 or Fantastic four 2015 is overrated - B1ueNew
