Is that time of the year when lists flood everything. As the year comes to its end, we evaluate the things we did, and a great way to do it is a list. Lists about everything: resolution lists, wish lists, best moments of the year lists, and also those who involve the not so good things, worst moments of the year, or maybe worst movies.
2016 has been filled with movies and huge titles. It has had the premiere of sequels and productions that had been long awaited, but not every movie was good, in fact, there were huge disappointments. Let’s take a look at the worst movies of 2016.
15. Now You See Me 2.
The sequel of the Four Horsemen playing their part as Robin Hood, and getting away with it was premiered this year. This time we get to see a crazy villain, played by Daniel Radcliffe, that adds up some fun to the movie. The thing is that despite the magic tricks, the story seems to have less and less hiding up in its sleeve.
14. The 5th Wave.
Alien invasion cliché story coming up. The story of alien invasion and annihilation of humanity was present this year, but with a little teen-romantic twist. This time a teen girl had to fight to save her little brother, and found love, to lose it. It was not impressive at all.
13. London Has Fallen.
With a talented cast and obsessive effects, the story didn’t cause such a great impact. Moving this time to London, as you probably guessed, the story develops the same plot and is caught in action-thriller clichés, and a great islamophobic plot.
12. The Brothers Grimsby.
Sacha Baron Cohen used edgy humor, and Mark Strong’s acting couldn’t make much for the movie. The story is somewhere between funny and desperate, with the multiple politically incorrect jokes.
11. Suicide Squad.
Another one with a great cast and that had been long expected. Not even the cast could help the fact of the average plot and the not-so-developed characters. Despite being a disappointment, it gathered a total of $325 million.
10. X-Men: Apocalypse.
Another superhero movie. The franchise this time focused on the villains, and of course, has a lot of action. Most people hated the waste of incredible talent such as Oscar Isaac hiding behind the shell of a blue turtle.
9. The Divergent Series: Allegiant.
Even when the series improves with this delivery, is not enough to upgrade its level. More and more shocking truths coming up for Tris and Four. The movie follows the boring story that now develops outside the enclosing wall, huge effects and, again, has not impressive actings.
8. Dirty Grandpa.
The movie was a bummer, considering the fact that has huge talents such as De Niro, and Efron. A grandpa goes loose with his grandson, during the crazy spring break plot didn’t make the numbers, it gathered only $34 million.
7. Zoolander 2.
Fifteen years ago, the first part fo the movie was loved due to Wilson and Stiller’s irreverence, but this second part was a total fail. The reappearance and total fail of the characters in this social media boom is just boring.
6. Yoga Hosers.
Awful. This crazy story of teenagers fighting in an incredibly weird way throughout a nonsense story seems to be the decline of Kevin Smith’s career. Unfunny, and a disaster.
5. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
The mashup between literature and zombies had a total crazy result. It never got to deliver a total mashup of it. It has some funny moments, but nothing impressive at all.
This one was a weird experience. The movie simply didn’t make it, not the plot, not the effects, nothing about it.
3. Gods Of Egypt.
Disaster. With great talents, as Gerard Butler, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Geoffrey Rush, the plot follows the adventure inspired by Egyptian mythology. A total decay, that’s what it is.
2. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Good cast, being the main one Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. The story is potentially god, but not as satisfying as one would hope. A lot of action and effects to fill it.
1. Independence Day: Resurgence.
The movie failed to show any emotional in this narrative of the end of the world. It does have really impressive visual effects, but it didn’t make as much impression as its predecessor.
