Top Ten Most Unexpectedly Bad Movies of 2016


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Blair Witch

The marketing done on this film was brilliant. Originally, the film was being teased under the title of 'The Woods', which, while vague and unoriginal, still gave off the proper vibes needed for a horror film to attract an audience. And it was working, I'd say. I'll admit that I was interested. But once the film was unveiled to be a secret sequel to 'The Blair Witch Project', I was bought. Too bad that after the great trailer was released, and after the early sky-high reviews started to pop up, the movie was quickly dismissed as another missed opportunity. But hey, I still loved it (despite the hate that circles around it like buzzards around a dying animal). - BKAllmighty

One of the most boring movies I've had to sit through. Thought it may be quite scary at first but it's far from it. - Uner1996

A bad sequel to an ok movie. - SteelCity99

22 London Has Fallen
23 The 5th Wave

I didn't think this was going to be bad but then I saw that Chloe Grace Moretz was in it and I didn't even watch it. Don't fight me here she can't act

I think the worst part was when Cassie took her phone with her and there's no power. I literally walked out of the theater after that. I know I saw the first 10 minutes and I hated it a lot automatically #1 worst movie of year.

The ending was the worst part. - luvkhia101

The trailers of this looked stupid and I didn't bother to see it, but looks like I didn't miss anything.

I've heard the book was better. - SailorSedna

24 Star Trek Beyond
25 Independence Day: Resurgence

Too cheesy with the dialogue. - SteelCity99

26 The Brothers Grimsby

Stunningly awful.

Vote for this movie for the Razzies.

27 Secret Life of Pets

Not terrible but it was marketed beyond believe and made me think it would be amazing. It's fine, but mostly a ripoff of Toy Story.

This film is so stupid but it is so funny I almost fell off my seat in the movie theater!

This was...meh. The trailers didn't interest me and it looks just like a bad combination of Lady and the Tramp and Toy Story. My dog could probably write a better screenplay than this.

Not to mention poop jokes in a film for families? Sigh... - SailorSedna

28 Jason Bourne

Paul Greengrass' last picture, 'Captain Phillips' was an underrated film (in that, it received too few nominations from the guys with the golden statues). This film, however, may go down being known as an overrated film, simply due to its connection to the original 'Bourne' trilogy that received all but negative reviews. Too bad, since this film was on my list of "must see films" the second it was green-lit. I denied myself the "pleasure" of seeing it once the reviews started pouring in, mainly because I had already gone against my better judgement when I went to see 'The Bourne Legacy' in 2012 and was disappointed. - BKAllmighty

I didn't think this movie was bad at all. Plenty of action, solid acting, great storyline, and the return of my favourite song, but it was pretty much made out of the other four. I can certainly understand its criticisms, but it was still an excellent movie, if not entirely original. - PositronWildhawk

Jesus Christ, It's a horrible Jason Bourne film

"Jesus Christ, it's Jason Bourne! " - SteelCity99

29 The Divergent Series: Allegiant

You know your franchise is bombing when the final instalment turns into a T.V. movie. Personally, I think it's hilarious. - BKAllmighty

30 Hardcore Henry
31 Ben-Hur

Testimony of how terrible remakes are. They're all going to suck (except for Pete's Dragon but I'm not sure if it counts since it's completely different from the original in all but name).

Also, why is this on here twice?

32 Bad Santa 2

Oh, my god! Santa's evil! - JakePlaid

Ho ho horrible movie. - DapperPickle

33 Alice Through the Looking Glass

Terrible! Dishonored the source material greatly.

Stupidest film I have ever seen - VideoGamefan5

34 Ice Age: Collision Course

Same As Norm Of The North - VideoGamefan5

Absolutely unnecessary. Blue Sky has officially run out of any original, creative ideas. The teaser alone I couldn't take seriously. Scrat being responsible for creating the solar system?

They clearly are just milking this series for all its worth and I can't believe they're making a sixth one if I'm correct...

They should have stopped at the third one, 'enough said. - SailorSedna

35 Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Okay, okay. I'll admit that it wasn't as good as the book and the plot was sometimes confusing and slow. But the story, relationships, and special effects could make up for that. - LeiaSkywalker

Never read the book but I liked this one. - SailorSedna

This movie was good - Unknownguy

36 Norm of the North

How does a polar bear end up in New York City?

We All Knew This Would Be Balls - VideoGamefan5

I knew this would be a pile of bear crap. Kate Higgins, what were you doing in this? - SailorSedna

But this film was a masterpiece! - darthvadern

37 Deadpool

WHO PUT THIS THERE?!?!?! Deadpool is the best R Rated hilarious Marvel movie of 2016, who says that this movie is horrible? I blame the person who dislike Deadpool

38 Arrival
39 Pete's Dragon

Nothing compared to Suicide Squad. This made $145 million at the global box office, SS made $745 million. I'll go with Suicide Squad as the best film of the summer.
