This gives the filmmakers a constant feeling that they need to push things further, as seeing larger-than-life superheroes brought to the big screen with huge budgets is far from novel these days. Sometimes, the push to make things epic and exciting works, and sometimes, it doesn’t. By the way, the following movies are all terrible, but they all extend themselves to some extent and act as smaller superhero movies that could be chewed by going big with sometimes confusing results.

10 ‘The Flash’ (2023)

The Flash Had a troubled production, to say the least, and was released when all of DC’s parts movie-wise were all up in the air. The film itself, as a result, juggles a lot, is a time travel story related to the multiverse, exploring the role of famous characters within the Justice League, and bringing back various characters in supporting roles or cameos.

It’s too unwieldy to be considered a great time travel/sci-fi movie and will certainly start to collapse on itself during the final act. That being said, there is still good entertainment value to be had The FlashAs long as the audience is willing to go with the flow, ignore some complicated elements within the plot and some inconsistent special effects.

9 ‘Suicide Squad’ (2016)

Suicide Squad A movie that could have been great, and in fact will be close to being great when it gets a sequel/reboot in 2021 with The Suicide Squad. On the other hand, the 2016 film it almost shares a slightly confusing title, to put it mildly.

The premise involves various unhappy imprisoned characters assigned to a mission they may not survive, which they spend at the prospect of rotting in prison. It relentlessly introduces character after character through a series of fantastical scenes, endlessly throwing needles at things to distract the audience while trying to keep building the DC universe in the background. Anarchy in a movie like this is a good thing, though Suicide Squad Push it all too far.

8 ‘Spider-Man 3’ (2007)

Although it’s not a terrible movie, Spider-Man 3 stand in the weakest Sam Raimitrilogy of. The original from 2002 is pure and satisfying, Spider-Man 2 Take the character to new heights that are only matched by Spider-Verse Movie, but then the third movie of 2007 can not quite keep it up.

Sequels should add new characters and threats to the hero, but Spider-Man 3 Maybe throwing too much into one movie, with multiple villains competing for screen time in a way that ensures no one can stand out. It might have been viewed more favorably if the fourth film had come out, but standing as the conclusion of the trilogy, it feels quite scattered and not entirely satisfying.

7 ‘Justice League’ (2017)

The only way to enjoy something like 2017 Justice League is to find fun in how baffling it is. It’s a 2-hour movie that desperately tries to give the shared universe with DC a movie with a big team – something like the MCU’s The Avengers — but doing so without the previous film laying a sufficient foundation.

It has to create a great villain, a threat to the world, show how to create a team named, revive Superman, and then have everyone participate in a climactic battle. Four hours proved to be enough time to do all this, as demonstrated by the superior (although there are still some drawbacks) Zack Snyder’s Justice LeagueBut with its intense running time, the drama from 2017 is relentlessly chaotic.

6 ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ (2016)

X-Men_ Apocalypse - 2016

It’s a miracle X-Men: Days of Future Past can chew and digest everything it leaves, but its tracking, X-Men: Apocalypse, can not do the same. It is a film that revolves around the rebirth of the world’s first mutant and the threat he poses due to destruction, the power of the world that may end.

In his attempt to be bigger and more explosive than the previous one, X-Men: Apocalypse stumbles and collapses under its own water, and it is difficult not to feel disappointed. At best, it recycles some things that work in others Male The film, and worst of all, it feels overblown and surprisingly stupid, although it seems eager to make the viewer take it seriously.

5 ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ (2022)

A lot of criticism has been thrown in the MCU’s direction over the past few years, and a few films within the franchise deserve the scorn, such as Thor: Love and thunder. The fourth film, God of Thunder, was basically ruined, feeling like the writing was lazy and uninspired, and like it was a bit of a misnomer to balance the humor with the more serious stuff.

Also not helping the problem is the fact that the comedy isn’t very good, and the movie as a whole isn’t nearly as funny. Thor: Ragnarok. It’s a mess of voices trying to beat each other, it doesn’t have time to flesh out the villain or show who he really is, and it wastes the other characters, including the Guardians of the Galaxy. Love and thunder is both a mess and a travesty.

4 ‘Blade: Trinity’ (2004)

Although there are some flaws, the first two blade Film starring Wesley Snipes Overall is pretty good. They don’t try to be anything more than what they are and serve as a satisfying and straightforward comic book movie that has more edge than most, given their R-rating and frequent play with the horror genre.

Few people can speak highly of the third film – 2004 Blade: Trinity — though. Nothing that worked in the previous film can be found in Trinity, with the film is uneven so the titular character is effectively sidelined in the film itself. Who is behind the upcoming MCU? blade They should do whatever they can to make the film the opposite Blade: Trinity.

3 ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ (2016)

Zack SnyderThe first DC movie was Man of steel, which, while flawed, is at least self-contained and relatively consistent. But part of “catch up Marvel” what affects 2017’s Justice League also started to his back in 2016 of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justicewhich tries to build up too quickly within a film universe that is hardly established.

When the film provides the first part of its title, it works. Pitting Batman against Superman is inherently interesting. but it is “The dawn of justice” A part that harms the film as a whole, in that it rushes to create a world that has absolutely no instructions Man of steel And introducing/bringing in big guns like Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor, The Flash, and Doomsday in quick succession eventually made things feel too much.

2 ‘Eternity’ (2021)

like Thor: Love and thunder, Eternal is another entry in the MCU that is considered a low point. However, it has cut out for it to a greater extent than the fourth ThHonestly should be a home run, thanks to many of its characters have already been established and with Taika Waititi Back after the guidance Ragnarok.

Eternal was always going to be a difficult film to make because it introduced a new superhero team – the Eternals – almost twice as long as the original Avengers seen in 2012. The Avengers. Those features are presented throughout phase 1. All the main players in Eternal was introduced in one film. It was too much, making the ambitious superhero movie finally flounder.

1 ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ (2012)

After Batman begins And The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight got up Summary Christopher Nolan’s Black ass trilogy in a less elegant manner than it began. It’s far from a bad film and offers plenty of entertainment and performances, but it’s still fair to say that it lacks cohesion, especially when compared to what came before.

It picked up many years later The Dark Knight and try to call back Batman begins To make the impression of what comes in the circle, all the while introducing new supporting characters and villains. It’s a lot — maybe too much — and feels bloated at 165 minutes, though it’s certainly not all the fault at the end of the day.
