When a film’s budget is hundreds of millions of dollars, success isn’t always guaranteed. Is it more likely? Sure, but nothing is given.
A recent online discussion lists some of the worst acting performances they’ve seen from a big-budget movie.
Will Smith plays his character without any emotion. It’s as if he was phoning in his performance for the paycheck. The same can be said for his son, Jaden Smith.
There’s so much that went wrong with this movie, and one reason is the performances of most of the main cast. While some movie fans point out that Skimbleshanks’s actor did a great job, that’s the exception.
The infamous John Travolta film is a mess of a movie on its own. Add in Travolta’s overacting, and it’s somehow even worse.
The Dark Knight Rises
The Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy is an incredible trio of films. There’s one gigantic flaw, though, that everyone agrees with: Marion Cotillard’s completely out-of-place performance as she dies in the film’s climax. We can’t believe that Nolan kept that take in the movie.
The Rock’s highly anticipated debut in the superhero genre was met with a resounding dud. Black Adam failed to resonate with audiences, and The Rock’s performance is one of the many reasons why.
50 Shades of Grey
Who’s at fault here: the actors or the script? Even worse, the screenwriters didn’t stand much of a chance with the source material, either.
It’s only fitting that we also talk about Twilight here, right? All members of the cast have proven themselves capable of delivering memorable performances. In the case of the Twilight films, we’ll believe that the script is what let them down.
Austin Powers: Goldmember
The Austin Powers movies aren’t necessarily known for their acting but are still delightful and hilarious. However, Beyonce’s performance in the third film stands out like a sore thumb.
Whether you love him or hate him, M. Night Shyamalan has an extensive filmography. Some of his movies are bonafide hits, while others are, well, not.
The Happening falls in the latter half, and one big reason why is Mark Wahlberg’s “performance.”
The 2000 X-Men movie is a really, really good comic book film. Patrick Stewart is Charles Xavier, Hugh Jackman is Wolverine, and Ian McKellen is Magneto.
Halle Berry’s performance as Storm, though, is a mixed back. This downright awful line does not help it: “Do you know what happens to a toad when it’s struck by lightning? The same thing that happens to everything else.”
