These Are The Worst Movies Ever Made According To Reviews

It's almost the weekend, so you might be thinking about what you're gonna do on Friday night, after a long week in the office.

Well, how about settling down for a quiet night in with one of the worst films ever made?

If that sounds like your idea of a top notch evening, you're in luck, because we've had a look through the 100 lousiest films on Rotten Tomatoes to see what was on offer.

You probably won't be surprised to find that Jason Statham makes an early appearance on the list with his blockbuster In The Name Of The King.

Coming in at number 99, the 2007 release sees the Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels star plays a medieval farmer out for blood after his son is murdered and wife is kidnapped by a band of brutish warriors called the Krugs.

Sadly for Stath, it was no Meg - I mean, what is?

Scoring just four percent from critics, the film bombed at the box office and was slammed for its 'wooden performances' and 'laughable dialogue'.

If that's not for you, though, fear not, there's plenty more tosh to choose from.

A bit higher up on the list is The Fog. No, not John Carpenter's 1980 horror, which was also not great, but a remake of said flop.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the story, the 2005 release stars Selma Blair (Cruel Intentions) and sees a menacing ghostly fog sweep through a town and basically kill everyone in sight.

It was panned at the time of its release and time has proven not to be quite the healer it is said to be, with critics giving it a paltry four percent and fans not much better at 19 percent.

Anyway, onwards.

Remember Speed? Of course, you do, it was a classic. Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, a maniacal Dennis Hopper and a runaway bus.

Well, how about a sequel, Speed 2: Cruise Control? Only this time it's just Sandra Bullock and instead of a bus it's, well, a cruise ship?

Watch the trailer:

Not quite the same, really. And receiving just four percent, fans and critics seemed to agree.

But Bullock isn't the only A-lister to make the list, not by a long chalk.

Adam Sandler is known for his rather eclectic film roles. He's basically either incredible or truly, truly awful. The Hollywood embodiment of Marmite.

And his 2011 comedy Jack and Jill was absolutely hated.

Starring alongside Al Pacino - yes, really - Sandler plays the titular Jack, who invites his sister, Jill, also played by Sandler, over for Hanukkah. Hilarity ensues. Or doesn't, actually.

Described by one critic as a 'crime to comedy', it scored just three percent among experts.

You may be more surprised to discover that Jaws also makes the list. And by that I obviously mean 1987's Jaws: The Revenge.

The fourth film in the series, it starred Michael Caine as Hoagie Newcombe, who must defeat a large shark terrorising a coastal resort.

Scoring zero percent, it is one of the worst rated films on the list, taking ninth place.

However, while the critics were petty scathing, Caine took the hate in his stride.

Speaking about it during an interview, he said he'd never seen the film himself, but added: "I've seen the house it bought for my mum. It's fantastic." Which is fair enough.

Down in fourth spot is the 2018 biopic of Mafia boss John Gotti, who led the Gambino crime family.

But even the star pull of John Travolta could do nothing to save it.

Also scoring zero percent, it was described as an 'awful mess' and 'The Room of mob movies', and was not well received. At all.

However, even this wasn't as bad as the 2000 thriller Ballistic: Eck Vs. Sever.

Here's the trailer:

Loading…

Never heard of it? Me neither. But according to the list, it is the creme de la creme of cinematic tripe.

It stars Antonio Banderas as a former FBI agent who is 'blackmailed back into service to track down an unstoppable ex-DIA operative, code-named Sever (Lucy Liu)'.

The film was described by critics as 'painful to watch' and received a big, fat zero percent.
