Top Ten Worst Movie Sequels

The Top Ten

1 Batman and Robin

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?

When I was little I didn't even like then and I hate even more now this almost killed Batman. Thanks Christopher Nolan, for saving it

2 Son of the Mask

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

Worst movie sequel ever that and the fact that they replaced jim carrey with the very unfunny jamie kennedy

This is a waste of time, money, and film. Who the heck wrote this piece of trash?

Makes Batman and Robin look like the fifth Star Wars movie.

Do you mean the chronological fifth film (The Empire Strikes Back) or the fifth film made (Attack of the Clones)? There's a big difference. - BKAllmighty

3 Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd

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

The first and the second movie was better

4 Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House

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.

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.

Boring and why did they get this new kid?

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

5 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

Did the first movie even need a sequel?

No it didn't

6 Jaws - The Revenge

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.

Dull, stupid and laughable, this terrible, awful sequel deserves all the scorn it gets. Just terrible.

7 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.

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

OH MY GOOOD! 111

9 Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo
10 Basic Instinct 2

The Contenders

11 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

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.

This movie was awesome, actually!

12 Daddy Day Camp

More like daddy day crap

13 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

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 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.

16 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.

17 High School Musical 2

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.

Like high school musical 2 movie

All 3 of these movies need to burn in Hell, they're the worst movie trillogy on the face of the Earth

18 Silent Hill: Revelation
19 Staying Alive
20 Jaws 3

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.

I hated this movie so much I laughed almost the whole time - hubahuba7

21 Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines

It should be wrong turn 6 first.

22 Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones

This shouldn't be here

23 A Fox's Tale
24 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.

25 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 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?

26 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

27 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

Don't mine him I thought this was O.K.

28 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

29 Blues Brothers 2000

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.

Seriously, I've seen pornos that have more story than this movie

30 Rocky V
31 Jason X

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

32 Home Alone 3

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

This shouldn't even be called Home Alone since Kevin isn't in it.

33 Rocky Balboa

This is a good movie - Sabbath

NOW ROCKY 1 ROCKY 2 ROCKY 3 ROCKY 4 AND ROCKY 5 WERE GREAT BUT THIS MOVIE WAS SO BAD I COULD NOT EVEN WACH THE HOLE MOVIE.It was horible with a capitol H.

34 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.

35 God's Not Dead 2
36 Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
37 Fifty Shades Darker

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?

38 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?

39 Sex and the City 2
40 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.

41 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.

42 Scary Movie 4

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

43 The Return of Jafar
44 The Matrix Reloaded

It was confusing and had a bad ending.

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.

45 Pocahontas 2 - Journey to a New World

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

50 The NeverEnding Story III

You should be happy with adaptations we have today because what if they all turned into this? That would be an imagination disaster!

THIS SUCKS! - robertoiglesias271

This movie really deserves to be acknowledged by moviegoers today because of how terrible it is. while there are some films that often betray some aspects of the original, this goes far into betraying the original. right down to the character's personalities being completely changed. (like in the first one, falkor was wise and optimistic. in this one he's a complete idiot. the rockbiter was a tragic character. Losing his friends from the nothing. in this one he has a wife and a son who watches T.V. even though T.V. doesn't exist in fantasia, and it all looks like an old cheesy sitcom. and after that he's off riding his stone vehicle with his son while singing "born to be wild" by steppenwolf). this movie truly is one of the worst sequels of all time. period.

This movie doesn't respect the book or the first film it's literary mocking in fact it didn't even feel like I was watching the never ending story it felt I was watching an unfunny robot chicken sketch even through those sketches are funny as hell in fact they made a sketch on the never ending story it was kinda mocking but it's not has big of an insult as this, I rather watch that than watch this any day and yeah none of the original cast are in this film I guess they were to old then but why have the free willy kid as bastian it doesn't really make any sense when you think about it bastian is a fat little 10, 11 or 12 year old kid with brown down hair, James richer whatever he's name is was a pretty skinny blond Crley haired kid who was roughly the same age but yeah just wasn't the right casting and the little tween sister in this film is a bitch she's not likeable I guess if the librarian in the films meet her well he did but didn't know much about her but if he did he will ...more
