Top Ten Worst Movie Sequels


The Top Ten

1 Batman and Robin

This is laughable but seriously.
WHAT DA - iliekpiez

Awful, horrible, George Clooney should be ashamed! I knew when Batman/Robin popped ice skates out of their boots to deal with a frozen floor that this movie would be a stinker. Towards the end, it almost turns into Batman on Ice with the silly, blinking vehicles they drive.

It is very very awful, with terrible characters, horrible acting and confusing morale.

Seriously? Puns? What Batman movie in the history of time had PUNS in it?

2 Son of the Mask

I thought this was a family picture

I liked Jamie Kennedy in scream. That’s it. WHEN WILL HOLLYWOOD LEARN TO STOP MAKING SEQUALS and prequels WITHOUT JIM CARREY. There’s this movie and that dumb and dumber crap prequel. Jim Carrey is what brand those movies to life. This movie has horrifying CGI, terrible casting, a dumb plot, a dumb villain, and when they tried to make it cartoonish, it was nightmare fuel. I see they were trying to explain the mythology of the mask with Loki, but it just ruined the film.

Worst movie ever made - iliekpiez

It's just an insult to the first film and the comics and the cartoon series I mean we have no Jim Carrey I know a lot of people complained about too but still and we have no plot no humor no comedy no nothing it's just pure crap also the effects are bad they're still using the effects from the first mask film which is pretty dated because I think the first mask came out I don't know 10 years earlier! And your using the same effect and the baby is for some reason trying to get rid of the father oh did I mention they had a baby in this and the villian is pointless and boring it's just a waste of time and film and everything I feel sorry for the actors it's not one of the worst movies but am telling it's Pretty close so my advise is stick to the original cartoon and the first film and the comics ok the comics are little too Gory and dirstrubing so for those who can't stand yeah they are probulay not for you or your kids but this is still worse I know it doesn't have any gory scenes in it ...more

3 Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd

Not really bad as movies like Terminator Genisys or Batman Forever.
but still bad
and it's a prequel - iliekpiez

The first one was hilarious and I was so looking forward to this one, it was s*, not funny, and bad acting

But isn't this a prequel not a sequel? - SirSkeletorThe3rd

This isn't a sequel, it's a prequel so it shouldn't be on the list.

While it isn't a proper sequel, the film, being a follow-up instalment that expands the narrative established by a preceding original work, is still a sequel, by definition. That's fact. - BKAllmighty

4 Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House

Trash - iliekpiez

I have to admit that there are SOME funny bits in this movie, but it's certainly no masterpiece. I can tolerate it, but I don't really recommend it. The more I watched this, the more mediocre I found the acting to be. The original cast members of the original Home Alone could act circles around the cast of THIS movie and no offense to Mike Weinberg (who plays Kevin in this movie), but he's no Macaulay Culkin. According to IMDb, even Daniel Stern refused to return for the role of Marv simply saying the movie was "an insult" and "total garbage" and I don't blame him at all. And to think that they made a fifth Home Alone even after this one was considered a flop.

The second it's made clear that Kevin McCallister's parents have divorced the movie (along with the first two films' good will) is ruined. It's all garbage. - BKAllmighty

WHY would they have a new kid WITH the name Kevin Mcallister and get a new actor. If they're going to get a new actor, then make a new character instead of Kevin.

5 Superman IV - The Quest for Peace

This has to be one of the worst sequels in history and I mean superman 3 was bad but this this I don't know what the hell this is I mean the visual effects are terrible even by 80s standards and the scenes with superman flying are just recycled scenes from the first three movies and the villain in this movie is so dull and boring to watch that he makes the villains from Care Bears look like best villains ever and the fighting scenes in this film are not impressive it's just superman and the villain smashing up and beating up each other which should be impressive but it's not and I admit I'm not big fan of the old superman movies but I liked the first one fine I barely remember the second the third I thought was this one shinned against nature and it's almost one of the worst movies I've ever seen but personally I think there's way more worse movies out there but not like there was any reason at all for this to be made I mean it bombed thank god.

BUT AWFUL - iliekpiez

6 Superbabies - Baby Geniuses 2

Is it really fair to call this one of the worst sequels of all-time when the original film was just as laughably-bad? Technically it's still one of the worst-ever sequels but it's not like anyone had any real hope for this one to be good in the first place. - BKAllmighty

What da
what was baby geniuses
I am extremely put off by this movie looking at the poster - iliekpiez

Did the first movie even need a sequel?

No it didn't

7 Jaws - The Revenge

A shark follows a family to the bahamas.
really? - iliekpiez

This is the reason why there are no more jaws movies. Jaws 3 was bad but it was so stupid that some of it was funny. This movie wasn't like that. The shark roars like a lion, the shark's mouth doesn't move, the visuals made superman 4's visuals look good in comparison, and the actors felt like they didn't want to be there on set. This movie has the same plot as jaws 3 except now it takes place in the Bahamas.

This film is hilarious, but all for the wrong reasons. Its flaws, errors and depictions have been covered enough, so you get the picture... - CrimsonShark

Horrible, awful, disgraceful, laugh out loud moments of ridiculousness, stupid, butt-munching, waste of time of a sequel.

8 Troll 2

Let it be known that while this film was marketed with the hope that people will think it's a sequel to the also crap 1986 fantasy-comedy film 'Troll' (that's right, it wasn't even a horror film), this film had absolutely no connection to the original film, whatsoever. The makers of 'Troll' could have actually sued the makers of this film because the two films are completely unaffiliated with one another. So, technically, this isn't really a sequel. It was actually produced under the name 'Goblins' during principal photography, and the idea to market the film as a "sequel" only came about after US marketing executives didn't think the film would make money. So, there's some food for thought. - BKAllmighty

So terrible its a classic


9 Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem

The Predator and the Xenomorph are horribly butchered by concept in this film. Why are the two trying to be Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees? Yeah, Freddy and Jason are horror icons and so are the Predator and Xenomorph, but the problem is that the latter two are completely different in concept. This film is actually trying too hard to be a slasher, but it terribly fails. Do we really need to see Xenomorphs killing people that we don't care about and root for a group of rather unlikable and forgettable protagonists?

What pisses me off is the extent this film tries to go in horror. A child gets his chest burst open by an infant Xenomorph, killing him instantly and another Xenomorph lays its eggs inside a woman who was just about to give birth to her child and broke her water. Is that supposed to be terrifying? HELL NO! That was vile, disgusting and worst of all, unnecessary. And the Predator wastes its time trying to find a Xenomorph-Predator hybrid and the fight scenes between ...more - CrimsonShark

10 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

All of them
they all suck - iliekpiez

Michael Bay is not America's favorite director! Shia Labeouf turned down the fans and we know Megatron was supposed to be dead! But at least Megan Fox is still my favorite actress!

Anything Michael Bay tries to do basically sucks. I was literally furious after seeing this.

The first one was undoubtedly way better than this crappy sequel.

The Contenders

11 High School Musical 2

Hate musicals

Nothing wrong with High School Musical. Disappointed that Zac didn't sing the songs in the first film but still good film. High School Musical 2 was never my favourite though because its not exactly school.

I hate these movies

Like high school musical 2 movie

12 Basic Instinct 2

Why did Basic Instinct need a sequel? - iliekpiez

13 Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo
14 Speed 2 - Cruise Control

Keanu Reeves dodged a bullet there when he was asked to return to "Speed" with a sequel. Not so much on Sandra Bullock though...

"Speed" wasn't just a great action film, it was a great film in general, even winning two Oscars based on Sound Mixing and Editing, and remains one of the best action films of the 1990s. Then there's a new question: "What happened on the sequel?!

Forget about the fact that the sequel is worse, "Speed 2: Cruise Control" is in itself, a terrible movie, not even being able to gross half of what its predecessor performed back in 1994. That's a damn shame. The film is also badly juxtaposed from the title, considering the pacing is actually quite slow and takes place on a cruise ship, which doesn't exactly picture "Speed" as a term if you ask me. Its even more surprising when "Speed" has a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes when this garbage is at 2%. That's just sad :(... - CrimsonShark

15 Daddy Day Camp

More like daddy day crap

16 Star Wars - Episode I, The Phantom Menace

Take this off the list - Harri666

Even Darth Maul couldn't save this one.

No attack of the clones was worse. This was an ok film. If it sucked then why was it successfull in box office and stealbook, bluray, and DVDs sales.

A movie is not determined good by how much money it made at the box office! - Kefka

17 Home Alone 3

I have no interest in these Kevin-less home alone sequels. HA2: Lost In New York was fine because it had the same cast. That one was like the sequel we didn’t need but glad we got anyway, But like this comment if you think HA1 would have done well as the only Home Alone movie!

This is just an insult to everything home alone stands for it's so bad! That I absolutely have nothing to say about it all can say is how can it be home alone if Kevin isn't in the film? Was the only reason why this film existed was because someone wrote John Hughes a pay check and yeah the kid actor in this film is obviously not as good as mculkin but he was alright I don't know what the hell he moved on to do and yeah the parents are worse in this film how can you leave your 8 year old who's sick home alone remember in the first film they freaked out on plane because they had realized what had happened to him here they leave at home by himself every single day all I have left to say is screw this insulting botched and stick to the first two.

How can it still be called Home Alone when Kevin isn't even in the movie. - egnomac

So let me get this straight, these SECRET AGENTS are constantly foiled by easily avoidable traps set up by a 5 year old? Good God, that is the most embarrassing thing I've ever seen

18 Exorcist II - The Heretic

Oh, christ almighty. It is terrible. Will never live up to it's prequel. At least William Friedkin was able to make a horror movie that both made you jump and was good. Also, the third movie was good, it was directed by the author of the books (The Exorcist). But, my point is, watch the first and third movie, not the second. It is not worth your time - Top15Playthroughs

Wow. This film made me not be so afraid of the first one anymore. Just because of how totally bad it is.

19 Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2

When your movie is as big of a hit as they come you don't turn around and make the cinematic equivalent to a slap in the face when sequel time comes around. Thank goodness they fixed things with a proper sequel in 2016 (which a lot of people hate for no major reasons). - BKAllmighty

it frightend children and just stupid

Biggest mistake ever that was supposed to be a found footage.

20 Silent Hill: Revelation
21 Jaws 3

Best jaws move.

This was so terrible. They didn't even try.

The effects are so laughable. The dolphin jumping out of the water at the end was hilariously awful.

Not as bad as jaws 4 the revenge but it still sucks. The only good thing about this movie is that it was filmed at seaworld.

22 The Smurfs 2

Um, yeah of course it did. Gargamel was left in New York, what happens next?

Did the smurfs really need a sequel?

I think they're just trying to make a franchise of crap

I hated both of them!

23 Staying Alive
24 Blues Brothers 2000

At least the songs are good

HORRIBLE. Loved the original, walked out of the theater with this one

The original was just pure class, this follow-up was pure garbage.

John Goodman in this movie ruined my life.

25 Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones

This shouldn't be here

26 Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi
27 Rocky V
28 The Lion King II: Simba's Pride

I love this sequel and I hate seeing this on worst sequel lists. Despite Simba and Nala's design changes the movie was great with great songs as well

This movie was awesome! If you hate it then that's your opinion

Shoot the characters in the pee pee

I hate the Lion King all of them

29 Jason X

Jason in space. Hands down, the worst movie in the Friday the 13th Series.

30 Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines

It should be wrong turn 6 first.

31 Halloween III - Season Of The Witch

Was Michael Myers even in this movie? I think not. This was a really dumb movie, it made no sense. WHO WROTE THIS MOVIE? NOT JOHN CARPENTER, RIGHT?!

Am I watching a completely different movie? Where as all the characters? Where's Michael Myers? Where's anybody?

32 Human Centipede II: Full Sequence

Disturbing+porn+violent=Human Centipede II: Full Sequence

Why are 8th in the list of 21th century best movies?

Don't even know what to say - kylebuschfan18

33 The Lion King 1 1/2

Timon and Pumbaa ruined all of the Lion King Movies

Retarded movie that messed up the original.

This film is retarded!

I hate hate hate this TLK Movie. Uninteresting, Bad Plot, Bad Jokes. Plus it ruined one of the most memorable TLK scenes, Circle of Life with Pumbaa farting and then the animals all bow down... What the Hell

34 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

I still liked this one, despite the outrageous things that happened in it! And I'm not even talking about the refrigerator! I mean a car landing on top of a tree which gently lowers it into the water! - higgsboson2142

I wouldn't say it was bad. Disapointing, yes, but bad, no. Then again, why do many people give this one critizism for nuking the fridge while Indy survives a long drop by inflating a raft mid fall and not breaking a bone in Temple of Doom?

35 A Fox's Tale
36 The Matrix Reloaded

It was confusing and had a bad ending.

Wasn’t really relevant but the third one was still worse

Why is this movie so high up on the list? Being honest 'Reloaded' is my favouritmovie in the Matrix trilogy. The action is great and all the fights are amazing. Also the relationship between Neo and Trinity deepens a lot. They are such a cute couple.

37 The Godfather, Part III

This was a movie that unfortunately had everything going against it. First it was a decade plus sequel to two of the greatest movies ever made. Secondly, and more importantly, Coppala's love of his family caused him to make one of the worst casting decisions ever. After Wynona Ryder dropped out in the middle of filming, he cast his daughter Sofia who was so bad that when I saw it in the theater, the whole audience cheered and clapped when her character was killed at the end. Just a side note Sofia went on to become a respectable filmmaker in her own right.

This movie is dead to me I loved the first to so it was crushing.

38 Rocky Balboa

This movie wasn't bad. Why is it here?

This is a good movie - Sabbath


39 Cloudy a With A Chance Of Meatballs 2

This one may not have been as good as the first one, but it's still funny.

40 Jaws 2

This one is good... but 3 and 4 were terrible

Not the worst jaws movie, but kind of a lackluster sequel in my opinion. Most of this movie is kinda slow and most of the action scenes minus the boat explosion and helicopter scene are kind of uneventful. a lot better than jaws the Revenge, but still kinda of a letdown considering how much I enjoyed it at the beach.

41 Pocahontas 2 - Journey to a New World

I wanted Pocahontas to be with John Smith, but she ends up with the other guy.

Eh I hated the first one too.

I haven't seen Pocahontas or the sequel and just reading the comments I don't know whether to watch it or not

42 Cars 2

Underrated in my opinion...

43 Scary Movie 4

Not as bad as number 5 but this movie was really cheesy.

44 Leroy & Stitch
45 Spider-Man 3

F$&@ you, this movie shouldn't be on this list. This was the best Spiderman and next to Avengers is the greatest superhero movie ever

This one was good.

Why do people hate this so much wait I know because of venom and emo Peter Parker. Those reasons are not even good reasons, this movie is actually decent sandmans scenes were good, symboite Peter Parker is actually good and James Franco was actually a great villian

The first one: AWESOME!
The second one: Good
This one: SHOOT ME GODDAMNIT! - BigBerry25

46 God's Not Dead 2
47 The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift
48 Grease 2

I was so sickened in how bad it was compared to the original, most people haven't even heard of it!

Grease 2? Noo thanks. I'll stick with the much better and original Grease thank you very much.

Stephanie loves Michael. But does she love him unconditionally?
It's clear where their relationship is headed.

49 Halloween - Resurrection
50 Fifty Shades Darker

Fifty shades of grey/darker or whatever are the worst movies ever...It is inappropriate and porn also disgusts me

At least the firstone was somewhat enjoyable, this one legit had no story and completely disregarded the events of the first movie and what was the helicopter scene?
