30 Greatest Actors Starred In The Worst Movies


Some of the greatest alive actors have starred in the worst movies of all time. And today we decided to bring out the list of these actors for you.


Firstly, the failure of a movie is usually because of a bad script. But most of the times a movie flops due to everything bad in it. Particularly, from concept to the screenplay to performance, everything counts. Not all movies go hit at the box office.

Well, some are a big disaster and disappointment at the same time. Especially for the actors, directors, producers and for the audience, off course!

The list contains your favourite actors working today. Further, you will see what their worst movies have been on the record. For instance, Sandra Bullock in the “The Blind Side” surely deserved an Oscar but got a huge critic. Same is the case with Tom Hanks. He deserves nothing less for being a usual exceptional performer.

Lastly, you can have an idea about the list of such unlucky productions. Like the plot of “Kingdom of Heaven” did not favour the selection of the cast much. Hence, it was subsequently satisfying and disappointing the critic and the fans respectively.

Therefore, we collected a list of greatest actors starred in the 30 worst movies that are hard to believe.

  1. 1 Sandra Bullock, "The Blind Side"

    Critic Score: 67%

    What the critics said: "Quite how Sandra Bullock deserved an Oscar for her one-note turn as bleached supermum Leigh-Anne is a mystery since it transforms a potentially worthwhile character study into a grandstanding star vehicle."  - Time Out

  2. 2 Lupita Nyong'o, "Non-Stop" (2014)

    Critic Score: 59%

    What the critics said: "The problem is that Non-Stop tries to be something it's not. It has one too many scenes that border on ludicrous, and the big reveal barely makes sense." -Globe and Mail

    Critic Score: 55%

    What the critics said: "There's the mind-numbing oompah rhythm of every gag telegraphed and every joke pounded into the ground." -Village Voice

  4. 4 Edward Norton, "Kingdom of Heaven" (2005)

    Critic Score: 39%

    What the critics said: "Since we barely know what's at stake -- were too confused and bored to care -- all this fighting means nothing to us, and yet Scott still hopes to rev us up with it." -Salon

    Critic Score: 37%

    What the critics said: "By the time this flat, excruciatingly predictable film reaches its drawn-out, melodramatic (and unintentionally comedic) ending, we've not only stopped caring about Emma and Dexter, we're actively rooting against them." -San Diego Union Tribune

    Critic Score: 19%

    What the critics said: "It's not bad so much as alien, like a romantic comedy made by someone who's researched human behavior but had very few brushes with it in person." - Buzzfeed News

  23. 23 Marion Cotillard, "Assassin's Creed" (2016)

    Critic Score: 18%
