19 Movie Sequels That Totally Ruined the Original Movie

Sequels are famously known to be disappointing, but some are actually embarrassingly bad. Someone online recently asked, “What is the worst movie sequel ever?” To avoid wasting your time watching them, here are the top 19.

Kindergarten Cop 2

“Yes, it does exist, and it is as bad as it sounds. Dolph Lundgren takes over the role of Schwarzenegger.”

“The movie was great. Why make another one?”

“I came across it randomly last night and was absolutely beside myself. I knew it had to be bad, considering I had never known it existed before. It has six percent on rotten tomatoes.”

“It had a budget of 84 million…”

American Psycho 2

“It wasn’t even originally intended to be a sequel. They just shoved the name on it and added loose references to Patrick Bateman. Awful.”

“Yeah, that’s the thing. The movie would have been a decent film if it was just a serial killer film and not an American Psycho sequel.”

S. Darko

“I loved Donnie Darko so much, and this movie made me want to throw my tv out the window.”

“Thanks, I’ll not watch the movie. I loved the lore outside the movie for the original. Sad to see they took a dump on the whole thing. I will go the rest of my life pretending the sequel never existed.”

Still Waiting

“It had some okay parts, but what they did to Justin Long’s character completely undercuts the meaning of the first movie. And no Ryan Reynolds.”

“I seem to remember there being one truly hilarious moment in that movie, though I can’t recall what it was. The rest was garbage. And Waiting was a fantastic movie.”

Mean girls 2

“I always forget it existed, and I’m always surprised whenever I see it again. Who thought that was a good idea?”

“I liked it when I was 12, then I watched it again, and I hated it. The main character radiated ‘not like other girls’ energy, none of the characters were realistic and relatable, and the plot was just dumb. I hate that movie.”

Battle Royale 2

“All they had to do was repeat the formula of the first, but they completely soiled the bed with it.”

“Battle Royale is my favorite movie, but Battle Royale 2 is so bad that I had to stop watching 30 minutes in. The plot is so dumb and nonsensical.”

Home Alone 3, 4, and 5

“​​I have a shine to three, it’s one of those so bad it’s good for me.”

“I thought he meant the four and five as a joke… how many times are you going to milk a good idea dry?”

Highlander 2

“I had forgotten about that one. What an atrocity that was. I can’t imagine any worse sequel than this.”

“ I just read the synopsis. Why? Why would someone do this?”

A Good Day to Die Hard

“Sooooo bad…at least Live Free or Die Hard seemed to have a bit of fun, and Timothy Olyphant chewed that scenery to a fine pulp.”

“I still think four is better than the second, but five just needs to be deleted from existence.”

The Dirty Dozen: Next Mission

“It honestly wouldn’t surprise me to learn that the writer had accidentally submitted a rough, internally contradictory outline, only to have the director shout ‘Perfect! We’re doing it!’”

Speed 2

“Yup, the story is that the script was so bad that Keanu refused to be part of it.”

“The Rotten Tomato scores between the first and second movie is the biggest chasm between a movie and its direct sequel. It’s, like, 94% vs. 7%.”

Lawnmower Man 2

“ Let’s just ignore everything that happened in the first movie because why not?”

“The problem is the first one was hot garbage too.”

Exorcist 2

“Exorcist 2 was alarmingly bad. Like insanely.”

“I’ve never in my life seen a sequel so different from the original in literally every way imaginable despite having the same star. It’s what you’d imagine a spoof film of The Exorcist to be like, but it wasn’t. It was jarring watching it because I went in without knowing anything about it. This fact was the only scary thing about that entire film.”

The Mummy 3

“That movie doesn’t exist in my mind. Stupid to have gone forward without Rachel Weisz too.”

“I loved the first two, but man, I couldn’t even make it 15 minutes into the third one.”

Cars 2

“Cars Two is a spy movie jammed in a movie franchise that has otherwise nothing whatsoever to do with spy movies. It’s about as jarring as if they made the next John Wick film a straight romantic comedy.”

“I wasn’t ready for the torture scene in Cars Two.”

Independence Day 2

“I was actively rooting for the main cast to die.”

“I saw it with my friends on opening day, hoping for a so-bad-it’s-good experience. But no, it’s just tedious and forgettable.”

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation

“Annihilation is one of the worst movies ever put to film PERIOD. It’s like four 8-year-olds were given a half million dollars and a film crew for a week.”

“The budget was actually 30 million. 10 million more than the original.”

Starship Troopers 2

“While the original was no masterpiece, it was decent. The sequel was an abomination.”

“Wait until you watch the third, which ends with the sky Marshall singing opera with/to the bugs.”
