The Most Disappointing Movies of All Time

They had the hype, they got your hopes up, they got you to fork over the money to buy a ticket, and then they dashed all expectations. This list is not a list of the worst movies of all time, just the ones that let you down the most. So don't put Double Team on this list because, face it, you should have known it was going to suck.

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Terminator Salvation

Couldn't "salvage" the Terminator franchise.

Ha ha ha... - Knucklewood

I liked it, but for me it was so close to being bad - Username123

They should have stopped after T2.

T1/2: classics
T3: not terrible, but kind of disappointing
Salvation: ehh...
Genisys: what the fu... - Jackamalio

22 Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Take this off the list! I love this movie and then again I love all the Harry Potter movies and if I see one on the worst movie list I just feel so offended since the whole franchise is the best Book to Film adaptation I've ever seen, it doesn't matter that I've only read one book, I've seen the whole movie Franchise and now it is time for me to read the rest of the books

This is where it all went wrong for the film adaptations. Picked all the wrong things to emphasize. Awkward teen love stories, poorly cast secondary actors who didn't look or act the part, a steam-punk aura, Rita Skeeter (what relevance did that have to anything before or after? )--the list goes on. After Azkaban, biggest letdown I've ever watched.

This movie wasn't bad, but it wasn't my favorite. I still remember a ton more of it than half blood prince

I love this movie - Username123

23 Shrek the Third

It wasnt horrible but I just expected more out of it. - jso11

Worst movie ever. There really is not much more to say, but I need more words. Mm, okay, I'm good now.

Does not hold up to the first two. Shrek 2 may be the greatest movie of all time.

Not terrible, just lacks the humor and originality the first two movies had.

24 Godzilla

I hope we're talking about the 1998 one.

it is.

25 Prometheus

One of the worst scripts in years. Terrible film. Pretty though.

26 Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars: The Force Awakens should be number 1 because the phantom menace was better than this.

Not gonna lie, this was a good movie. The cast and special effects were great, but it was too similar to A New Hope. Heck, I'd even say Revenge of the Sith was better than this one.

The movie sucked so bad.

Most disappointing thing in this world.

27 Quantum of Solace

Very bad movie. Expected a lot after Casino Royale... And we got this...

28 Sex Tape

Right, Because A Movie With The Word "Sex" In The Title Sounds Like A Great Movie, Correct? - VideoGamefan5

29 A Good Day to Die Hard
30 The Da Vinci Code

What? Thy is this movie is in this list? This is my favorite movie

I almost fell asleep.. what a waste of time renting it.. yawn - Ak3nator

31 Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief

The book was amazing. The movie... Terrible. It was an entirely different story, the acting was terrible, and the characters didn't look anything like in the books. You'd be better off just reading the book and not seeing the movie.

Did the filmmakers even read the book before they made this movie? - alexcousins

This should be in the top 3. HORRIBLE FILM, amazing books

At least it's better than the sequel. - LarkwingFlight

32 What to Expect When You're Expecting
33 Sucker Punch
34 Independence Day: Resurgence

First movie: Not bad

Resurgence: Boy this movie is as bad as hell!

35 Dragon Ball Z: Bio-Broly

Why the hell is broly a pile of goo its just as bad as evolution - ikerevievs

Unnecessary, but it's not as bad as evolution dude, don't be so crazy please - Ale99

36 Queen of the Damned

My heart broke. I was expecting to see the Ancient's reunion, and it never happened. Even worse, they made Armand into an ugly, blond fat-ball

37 Slumdog Millionaire

It's wonderful, said everyone. Yeah right... Wasn't bad, but wasn't worth all those Academy Awards it won. - ohright

How this one won best picture I will never know. I saw it in theaters and was disappointed when I left. It wasn't bad. But best picture? Really? - logblobo

38 X-Men 3

As a maniac fans of previous X-men movie, I was so dissapointed with this one!
damn, why Bryan Singer didn't direct it.. it just look all dark, without any escent like previously made.. Bret Ratner suck! - mesh13

They killed Cyclops, the best X-Man ever, so that pretty much ruined the movie - rorschach1011

I agree with rorschach1011. They shouldn't have killed cyclops - Heman

So disappointing it had to be added to this list twice.

39 Due Date

This one ain't that bad... The casting ain't bad either. Why the hell is this movie in this list?

40 The Amazing Spider-Man

It Wasn't That Bad, It Was Pretty Good

Awful, but the second one is even worse - Ale9991

This film just felt WAY too rushed.

Very bad. Felt like a SyFy T.V. version of Spider-Man. Cheap and corny.
