15 Movies So Bad We Couldn't Wait To Walk Out on Them

Attending the movies is almost always a wonderful escape from reality. Sometimes, however, that escape is tarnished by the subpar quality of a film.

Most of the time, you can find entertainment in movies so bad that they’re good. However, every once in a while, a film is so atrocious that you must walk out on it. 

Recently, Redditor seveer37 asked, “What was the last movie you turned off or walked out of?” It turns out that there are a lot of movies people have been walking out of as of late!

You People

While mainly a Netflix release, You People did release in select theaters across the United States.

With an impressive cast, you’d figure that You People could do well to entertain and succeed. Yet a chief criticism of the film is how it feels like Hollywood refuses to live outside of its bubble. The movie is also accused of being severely anti-Semitic. 

One comment mentions that the movie feels like a bad Entourage subplot that was stretched into a feature-length film.

The beloved musical had a lot of hype leading into its theatrical release. 

Say what you want about the costumes, but I’ll let this comment do the talking for the overall experience of this film.

” It was like an event, a car crash I had to see. I knew everyone said it was bad, and something like that is the last thing I’d even agree to see, let alone take the initiative. I slowly lost my mind not only at what was on screen but the sheer fact that I willingly walked into it and brought someone down with me. It was great.”

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

The second entry in the Jurassic World trilogy brought back Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcom. For one scene. At the end of the movie. This means you had to sit through two hours of what attempts to resemble a functional plot. 

All of the Jurassic World movies have cool ideas but terrible execution. Still, it’s at least better than…

Jurassic World: Dominion

Where do we even begin here? 

Despite bringing back the original Jurassic Park cast, nothing could save this movie. Many fans of the series expressed having tears in their eyes, but not tears of joy. They had seen a beloved movie franchise be butchered in front of them. Their time would have been better spent walking out. 

Suicide Squad

We’re talking about the 2016 Suicide Squad, not the James Gunn Suicide Squad. 

Everyone knows the often-mocked line from Will Smith: “So that’s it? What? We some kinda…Suicide Squad?” Smart moviegoers walked out of the theater right then and there. 

Not everyone could be so lucky, though. One comment states, “I got up of my chair, but they didn’t let me leave, the steward said no matter how bad the movie was I couldn’t leave the airplane.”

Wonder Woman 1984

For Pedro Pascal, life is good, but it can be better. He moved on from an incredibly disappointing Wonder Woman sequel to new heights with 2023’s The Last of Us on HBO

Unfortunately, Wonder Woman 1984 cannot meet the expectations of the original Wonder Woman movie. Instead, the sequel falls victim to tropes and traits of sequels: trying to do too much. Plus, the plot point of Steve Trevor taking over someone else’s body, especially in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, is still under fire today.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

It turns out that when you entirely undo any of the consequences from the first movie and fill a sequel with awful writing, you’re just asking moviegoers to walk out of the theater. 

Not only is Crimes of Grindelwald a disappointing movie, but it also retcons the original release with nothing more than a hand wave. 

Black Adam

Dwayne Johnson‘s first superhero movie isn’t the best film in the world. 

Black Adam is a generic, run-of-the-mill superhero movie that fails to impress even as a popcorn flick. In our review, we said the film was cliched and bland. Unfortunately, other superhero movies tell the same message. Heck, most superhero movies do a better job. 

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Somehow, Palpatine returned. That line likely caused even the most die-hard Star Wars fans to walk out of theaters. 

Some commenters stated that they’d rather see Cats than Rise of Skywalker. That’s saying something. It was clear from the beginning that the Star Wars sequel trilogy had no plan, and each movie featured the writers and directors just winging it. 

The Mummy

The Tom Cruise Mummy, not the Brendan Frasier Mummy. The latter is an absolute classic. The former is a movie studio’s poor attempt to make a franchise out of nothing. Since, you know, that’s what studios do nowadays: extended universes. 

The film was so disappointing that Universal’s plans for an extended monster universe were soon scrapped.

Despite the pre-release buzz for the Marilyn Monroe movie, Blonde is described as more boring than watching paint dry. 

Someone even mistook the movie’s name for “Marilyn,” not “Blonde.” They described the movie as so lackluster they couldn’t even remember its name. 

The Eternals

After the success of Avengers: Endgame, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has had some stumbling blocks. The first of which is The Eternals.

The movie is admittedly a big gamble for Marvel, but in the eyes of many, it’s not one that paid off. Considering people walking out of this film and not, say, Thor: The Dark World, that’s honestly saying something. 

Thor: Love and Thunder

Speaking of Thor and Marvel movies, Love and Thunder is one of the most disappointing films in recent memory. Despite the success of Thor: Ragnarok and the performance by Christian Bale, Love and Thunder couldn’t meet the hype. 

“I don’t expect Taika Waititi to be great all the time,” one comment said, “but lord, this sucked.”

For those hoping Phase 5 of the MCU would fare better, it’s sadly not off to the greatest of starts

Death on the Nile

Some Hollywood remakes are successful. But, unfortunately, Death on the Nile is not one of them. 

“The Nile remake was pretentious right from the start,” one comment states. “Skipped ahead to see it was mostly CGI. I switched it off and found the 1978 version which I’d never seen. Not as slick. Mellow dramatic even. But at least they went to Egypt and filmed it on the Nile. It was fun to watch.”

The Matrix Resurrections

The trailers for the surprise fourth entry in the Matrix movie seemed promising. 

Keanu Reeves has established himself as a premiere action star thanks to his work in the John Wick franchise. But, sadly, that magic couldn’t translate to the newest Matrix movie. Whether watching it in theaters or at home on HBO, many fans couldn’t bear to watch it. 

Bonus: Morbius

On the one hand, the disaster that is Morbius is well-known across the entire galaxy. Yet everyone is afraid to admit that this is the greatest movie of all time.

Jared Leto‘s ability to deliver a compelling and tragic story helps elevate this comic book movie to cinematic art. Unfortunately, its snubs from fans, critics, and the Academy are one of the greatest tragedies of our time. 

Morbius transcends bad movies. It’s so awful that you should walk out on it, but you can’t look away. Before you know it, you’ve spent the past ten hours watching it on Twitch and wondering what you’ve done with your life.
