Worst movie of the decade? Antonio Banderas take a bow

September 29, 2009

CZECH/Spanish actor Antonio Banderas has won the dubious honor of having his 2002 movie “Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever” named as the worst movie of the past decade.

A top 100 list, compiled by film criticism aggregator Rottentomatoes.com, ranked films like “Battlefield Earth,” “Pinocchio” and “Killing Me Softly” as among the worst of the worst.

Rottentomatoes.com’s Tomatometer¬†gives films a percentage marktometer, representing how they were received by critics from print, broadcast and online publications.¬†¬†Banderas’s 2002 movie, that also starred a black leather-clad Lucy Lui, topped the list with a score of zero percent, meaning
not one critic gave it a thumbs up.

Other movies on the list which failed to register even one percentage point include Japanese horror film remake “One Missed Call” from 2008, Roberto Benigni’s version of “Pinocchio” from 2002, comedies “King’s Ransom” from 2005 and “National Lampoon’s Gold Diggers.”

Comedies “Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2,” “Strange Wilderness,” and “3 Strikes” also backfired with zero points.

Do you agree with the critics?

Comments

these critics need to realize that people like movies to take them away from their dalily lives. some of the movies they give a thumb down, are good entertainment. battlefield earth and ballistic: ecks vs. sener are entertainment, i would rate them between an a and b movie.

The garbage of one man can be the treasure of another man, I believe this holds true with movies too. So in the end, perhaps all critics are right and wrong?
