I started out to do a top 10 list, but I quickly realized that there are so many bad comic book movies out there, that it would be a shame not to mention them. So this list became a little bigger than first expected, and even now I had to leave some pretty bad ones out. In this list there are movies that should have never gotten the green light. Basically all the movies on this list are more or less equally BAD, so don´t mind too much attention to the listing. They are all horrible!
Enjoy if you can…
This movie had all the makings of an epic success, but it just didn´t fly. I had pretty high expectation, because I really liked Blade (also directed by Stephen Norrington). It wasn´t all bad, but let´s face it, it wasn´t good either. Even Sean Connery couldn´t save the movie from sinking.
I´m so over Seann William Scott. I was already over him when he played Stifler in American Pie movies. He has the full scale charisma of a wooden log. So him combined to some more bad acting, poor directing and a ridiculous script, you get Bulletproof Monk.
Hirveetä paskaa (a.k.a. utter bullshit)
I like Thomas Jane, I don´t know what it is, but I just like him. That being said, he alone isn´t enough to salvage a movie. It is actually a real shame that this movie bombed so bad, because the story itself offered the perfect setting for a great movie. Once again the filmmakers didn´t have guts to take the story far enough.
To be totally honest, this movie did have it´s moments. The first part of the movie actually rocks when we look at Matt Murdocks childhood and how he got his super-hero abilitys. Also Colin Farrell is on a roll as Bullseye. But what the hell is up with casting Ben Affleck as the Daredevil. This is what is up: a massive truckload of FAIL!
A bad spin-off to a bad movie. End of story.
There is nothing fantastic about this movie or the sequel which was at least as bad as the first one. In fact this 14th place is divided for both of them. I guess the only reason why I picked the first one, is that I think Silver Surfer is awesome…
Immortel is definitely one of the biggest disappointments I have ever experienced. This is because I love the original graphic novels and on top of that the movie is directed by Enki Bilal himself. All I can say to Bilal, is don´t quit your day job! The same thing happened to Frank Miller, when after Sin City he apparently thought he was the worlds greatest director and did The Spirit. Not good, sorry…
This is a movie for everyone who likes to see Charlize Theron stretching in tight black outfits. But besides an exercise video, there is not much more to it.
I know some people consider this as a cult film, so perhaps it should have a higher number on my list, but it is just not that good. The idea to do an adaptation of Tank Girl is actually pretty cool, but when it doesn´t work, it just doesn´t work. It could have been the best steam-punk movie ever, but it just sucks big time! What ever momentum I had with it when I was younger is long gone by now.
This movie has the crappiest taglines ever. Here is an example: “Two amazing secret agents. One diabolical madman. Conditions are dark. The forecast is deadly. Tea, anyone?”. A little too much, won´t you say.
Alien is awesome! Predator is awesome! These two combined = FAIL!!! Paul W.S. Andersson is one of the most terrible directors out there and they still let him direct. Well he does make truck loads of money to the studio executives, so why the hell not.
Nicolas Gage is literally on fire in Ghost Rider and I don´t mean it in a good way. The special effects are horrible among other things.
Shaquille O’Neal stars in this film. Do I really need to say more?
There is no excuse for the tackiness of this movie. The art direction was just embarrassing and the costumes were utterly ridiculous. That alone would be enough to condemn this movie to hell, but in addition to that there is also bad acting through out the whole film and a terrible script. I can´t understand why this movie was ever made. Well it seems that some idiot is trying again, a new movie is coming out in 2012. good luck with that!
Mr. Freeze: “You’re not sending ME to the COOLER!”. This movie has the worst script ever written. That´s all I´m gonna say, you know the rest.
Yeah purple spandex 4-ever!
This was definitely the biggest FAIL on Halle Berrys career. Oh wait, what career?
There is no way to even start with this one. But in any case congrats to Pam. Barb Wire is an abomination to the whole genre. It´s so bad, it´s not even funny.
So there you have it, let´s hope movie makers have learned form their mistakes and mishaps and we will be seeing better comic book movies in the future. Uh oh, I feel the next blog post forming in my head…
Until the next time…
