Worst Movie Endings of All Time


The Top Ten

1 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

I didn't even think this movie was going to end

Just curious which ending is being referred to because it had like 20 different endings..

What? How is this ending horrible this is like the best movie ever made!

It isn't even bad it's just so... Weird!

2 War of the Worlds (2005)

Till the end of the movie, I was waiting for the twist to turn to "Happy Ending", and at the end, I was happy it would be an sad ending movie, then bam! He found a method! Sad movie..

Why is Lord of the Rings in this top ten? It's the best end ever!

3 Star Wars Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

I didn't think the original ending was powerful enough. I mean it's just them at a bonfire and luke meets up with the ghosts of anakin, yoda, and obi-wan. That's it.

Only big flaw with the original trilogy

4 The Devil Inside

The movie ends with a link to a website that has the movie's ending, but due to the studio not wanting to pay for the domain anymore, the site now no longer exists. And now, you have a movie that has an ending that will never be revealed.

They crash the car and then... A website link. Two hours of my life I'll never get back.

5 Sunshine

It turned from a sci-fi film into a slasher film

6 Planet Of The Apes

It was basically just a worse version of the ending to the original movie

It's like they left a whole movie out - westofohio

7 Titanic

Such a boring predictable lump of crap
All the people died on the boat and nobody gave a damn. It was so self centred on the two main characters. One of the cheesiest American remakes ever!

Three hours of horribly boring dribble, only to leave us with the most predictable, cliched ending of all time.

This was the most predictable ending in movie history. - booklover1

Lets just get this straight there was enough room for 2 come on!

8 The Amazing Spider-Man 2


9 The Abyss

This movie was well on it's way to becoming one of Cameron's best. A brilliantly realistic depiction of the under sea world. The Ed Harris/Elizabeth Mastrantonio scene dying and returning was stupendous.
But ending that movie with ET and everyone doing the Spielberg look of awe destroyed what came before. And, I won't even mention the end appearance of Chris Elliot a funny man in such a deadly serious film. ridiculous.

Epicly bad ending on an otherwise good movie. Perhaps the biggest drop off of all time.

10 Australia

The Contenders

11 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

What the heck man seriously that Russian died from the dumb ark

While knowing had a crap ending, I mean. Really. Ok, Spalkos eye blowing up was cool. But...

Good movie but what the hall why have a flying sorcer at the end you start with all the history stuff then in to a syfi crap

12 Lady In The Water
13 Knowing

the whole film was boring and the ending was disappointing in addition. N. Cage showed awful acting too - Alexandr

14 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Seriously, it was all just a vision?

Was it an ending? Another part must be there...

15 The Number 23
16 The Village

I'm surprised this isn't in the top 5.

Living in the wild life preserve

17 The Mist

A Complete waste of time. Hopeless ending, racist leanings and stereotyping all people of faith as lunatics, pretty much sums it up. But go ahead and watch it. It was fun watching the looks on peoples faces when they left the theaters back when it was running. A couple of them even puked in the parking lot, but that might have been the beer they smuggled in.

Everyone states that this movie is unbeatable masterpiece and even classic. I say WHAT? OK, it wasn't bad but it wasn't great at the same time. And yes, the ending was stupid - Alexandr

God I wanted to throw up, he killed everyone because he wanted to have the horrible death that never came when the military came and saved the day.

The movie is actually awesome but the ending is screwed up! Seriously, why did he kill his family even when the military came?!?

18 No Country for Old Men

This movie was perfect for the first 3/4. But the fact that they skipped over the big climax that finished a major character's arc almost ruined the whole thing. Even though the book did the same thing, what works in a book dosen't work the same in a movie and NCfOM is the best example.

Also, why is would Return of the King be #2? That's probably my all-time favorite movie, so what if it had five endings? The more the merrier

Really the murder gets loose! A t least have him bleed out after suffering for a month.
