Suicide squad (2016)
Without China, the film about the Suicide Squad group still grossed $746,8 million worldwide. That shows how great the appeal that Suicide Squad creates. But, in fact, the blockbuster is a big disappointment in terms of content. Discrete script with bland villains like killing viewers’ emotions when watching. DC and Warner Bros. is continuing to make The Suicide Squad with an almost completely new cast of characters, as an attempt to make the audience forget about the David Ayer movie.
IMDB Score: 6
Justice League (2017)
Expected to be a counterweight to The Avengers of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Justice League ended up dragging down the entire DC Superhero Universe. After a complicated process of making, the film was completed by Joss Whedon and the finished product was a mess that left both critics and audiences frustrated. The production budget was overstated by nearly $300 million, and Justice League caused a serious loss for Warner Bros.
While the superhero line is growing, the film seems to bring the audience back to the 1990s genre because of its color and blandness. The only bright spot of the film is probably Wonder Woman’s beautiful sister and it seems less dark and funny than the previous film. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016).
Jonah Hex (2010)
Before making a splash as Thanos in the MCU, Josh Brolin tried his hand at the superhero line through a Western-colored work called Jonah Hex. This 81-minute work received a wave of fierce criticism with a score of 12% on Rotten Tomatoes and a revenue of only $ 11 million. Critic Keith Phipps gave the film an F and criticized the film’s sloppiness “as if it was made for a deadline and the filmmakers were drunk”. The Houston Film Critics Society voted this as the worst movie of 2010. Only the acting of actor Josh Brolin is the highlight of the work.
IMDB Score: 4.7
Batman Forever (1995)
Unlike the two films above, Batman Forever, produced in 1995, was a relatively successful film in terms of box office: a global total of $336 million with a business only 100 million.
However, Batman Forever has received countless criticisms from both critics and authors. Joel Schumacher became the name to blame when giving Batman Forever a dreary, dreary atmosphere, and Val Kilmer became the worst Bruce Wayne in history with his chestnut hair.
IMDB Score: 5.4
Superman III (1983)
Following the success of the previous two Superman films, Superman III is made under the direction of Richard Lester, the director who was relatively successful with Superman II, and still features Christopher Reeve as Superman. But Superman III has fallen miserably, signaling the demise of the Superman franchise.
Actor Richard Pryor became a “stand-up comedian” with redundant scenes in front of the camera, it is not clear whether this was due to the actor’s fault or the writer’s poor character development. Along with that, Superman III was also vehemently condemned by the audience with bluffing comedy scenes, unoriginal plots and extremely silly situations.
IMDB Score: 4.9
Movie Supergirl (Translation: Supergirl) was produced in 1984 with the participation of the beautiful actress Helen Slater and even grossed only 14 million dollars. The film is about Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin, and also the female version of Superman, marking the character’s first appearance on the big screen. But with Faye Dunaway’s tedious plot, old-fashioned effects, and bad acting, Supergirl quickly became a disaster and became the worst-grossing film of any DC adaptation.
IMDB Score: 4.3
Batman & Robin (1997)
Unlike the three films above, Batman & Robin (Translation: Batman and Robin) not only did not lose but also had a small success, when the revenue was 238 million with a budget of 125 million dollars. So as Joel Schumacher deserves to be the villain of Batman fans, after the Batman Forever disaster, Schumacher decided to change the boring atmosphere with a Broadway musical.
With red-green lighting, costumes and music that look like they’re from the 60s, Schumacher manages to turn the film into a play. The plot is too childish, the characters behave stupidly and the situations are also humorous. Both fans and critics consider this to be Batman’s worst disaster, despite the film’s many talented actors.
The movie is even more forgettable with the Batman costume with…nipples. Explaining this, director Schumacher said that “bats must have breasts” and he decided to make a set of metal armor with two nipples on the chest. And in the end, although Batman & Robin still made a profit, the film received 11 Golden Raspberry nominations and was considered by the audience as one of the worst superhero movies of all time.
IMDB Score: 3.7
Superman IV: The Quest For Peace (1987)
If Superman III was already a lousy movie that signaled the demise of the Superman franchise, then it is Superman IV: The Quest For Peace (Translation: Superman part 4: Peace Mission) is that downfall. The producer’s budget cut from $35 million to $17 million has made Superman IV the movie with the most boring car crash and fight scenes in history.
Superman IV also has a screenplay as bad as its effects: a story about nuclear war and an unconvincing ending. As a result, the film only grossed 15 million dollars and lost money. Also for the above reasons, Superman IV was the end of the Superman movie line of the 90s with the legendary Christopher Reeve and it was almost 20 years later that the Superman image had the opportunity to return to the big screen.
IMDB . Score: 3.6
Green Lantern (2008)
However, if it’s a technical failure, it’s worth mentioning the movie Green Lantern, made 2 years after Superman Returns, in 2008. With a budget of 200 million dollars, but the blue costume and the dance scenes. Green Lantern’s pillar doesn’t look real at all. The content of the film is also somewhat lengthy and less attractive.
And as a result, the film only grossed $219 million worldwide, plus the marketing costs that clearly made the film a loss. Even the actor who played the main role of the film: Ryan Reynolds admitted that he himself could not watch ‘Green Lantern’ starring himself and many times used this film to entertain fans.
IMDB Score: 5.6
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
Gathering two popular superheroes of DC comics with the goal of earning more than 1 billion USD, but Batman v Superman ended up causing a great controversy on the Internet. Critics and the general public did not support the blockbuster, and DC fans still actively supported the work, especially after director Zack Snyder released his own version. In general, this is still a long, lengthy work, with many ideas that have not been fully exploited. It was the film that made the DCEU begin to fall into a “secret position” in its deployment and expansion.
IMDB Score: 6.4
Superman Returns (2006)
Superman Returns is a film directed by talented director Bryan Singer in 2006, which is expected to revive the Superman franchise, after the decline of the most recent Superman parts. With the successful return of Batman in Batman Begins, Warner Bros. is also expected to bring these two cult superheroes to have a cross-over movie for the first time.
However, Warner Bros. was disappointed because Superman Returns was a real bomb. The film was invested $270 million to make but only grossed $391 million worldwide. With a blockbuster with high expectations, plus marketing costs, the figure of $ 391 million is not enough for Warner Bros investors to be satisfied. The reason Superman Returns became a bomb is not difficult to understand, when made in 2006 with a budget of $ 270 million (More than the budget of any Transformer movie) but the effects are extremely bad, plus The fact that the content is too focused on Superman’s tragic love has made this movie a failed return of Superman.
IMDB Score: 6.1
Characters for the first time Catwoman sexy and seductive appeared on the big screen in the movie of the same name (rough translation: Cat Man) but had to receive an extremely tragic ending. Not only is the quality of the film in a poor form, with a plot that is nothing short of innovative and creative, but the film’s costumes are also terrible.
But the most remarkable thing here is that the producer changed the white, charming, charming, cold Selena (Catwoman) character into a gullible African-American girl, until the new victim was harmed. take revenge. Not talking about racism, changing the original, especially big factors like skin color (also the origin of the character) is taboo in the adaptations. At the same time, the lead actress of the movie Halle Berry also had a bad performance that made her receive a golden raspberry award that year. So the movie with a budget of $ 100 million only grossed 82 million, plus another one. Another heavy-hole DC movie.
IMDB Score: 3.3
