THE WATCHTOWER — The highly anticipated "Justice League" is finally headed to theaters this week and we're still not sure what to expect from it. Fans are cautiously optimistic about the movie, but many are worried about the superhero team-up movie. "Wonder Woman" is one of the best movies of the year, but it will be hard to capture that same magic with "Justice League."
Thankfully we won't have to wait long because KSL.com has a review coming up Thursday and the movie releases that night if you're eager to see the Justice League in action.
With the movie headed to theaters this week we thought we'd take a look at the members of the Justice League and, just for fun, find their worst reviewed movies.
The way I ranked the films was based off the IMDb audience score. I thought about the Rotten Tomatoes score, but that thing is so complicated and who trusts critics anyway? The IMDb audience score is based off of regular moviegoers like all of you and rating a movie on a scale from one to 10 with 10 being the best.
Here are the Justice League's worst movies according to audiences:
Cyborg - Ray Fisher
"Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" IMDb Score: 6.6
Ray Fisher is a newcomer and his role as Cyborg is his first real foray into acting. With that said, his lowest rated film is "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice." It's hard to blame Fisher for this considering he shows up for about 20 seconds in the film and I'm not even sure he had any lines.
"Dawn of Justice" wasn't a terrible film, but it did have a lot of problems and left a lot to be desired. Hopefully "Justice League" can turn that around as we really get to see Fisher for the first time.
The Flash - Ezra Miller
Ezra Miller has actually been a part of some really good films. "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" has a really high rating on the IMDb audience score and I was a big fan of his disturbed and unfortunate character in "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." But not every film can be a home run.
The film "Every Day" has a solid cast with Liev Schreiber and Helen Hunt, but audiences didn't connect with the comedy-drama, calling it "depressing" and "awful." Maybe a bit harsh, but people didn't really like it too much.
The other film, "Madame Bovary," is a period piece based off the novel of the same name. One user review called the movie "tedious and boring."
Aquaman - Jason Momoa
"Debug" IMDb Score: 4.3
Jason Momoa is known for his turn on "Game of Thrones," and he's about to become a lot more popular playing the king of the sea, Aquaman. The muscle-bound actor has a few missteps on his resume, but his lowest rated film is 2014's "Debug."
I haven't seen this film and don't really have any plans to do so anytime soon. The plot description has a bit of intrigue, but not enough to make me go out and find the DVD: Six young computer hackers, sent to work on a derelict spaceship, are forced to match wits with a vengeful artificial intelligence that would kill to be human.
Superman - Henry Cavill
"Red Riding Hood" IMDb Score: 3.2
Henry Cavill became a household name with "Man of Steel," but in 2011 he was still that guy you recognized from something. That's likely part of the reason he was happy to take a supporting role in the mess that was "Red Riding Hood."
The movie tried to take a new spin on the classic fairy tale by interjecting young actors, a supernatural aspect and a werewolf. The new spin didn't land with audiences and now stands as Cavill's lowest audience score.
Wonder Woman - Gal Gadot
"Kicking Out Shoshana" IMDb Score: 5.0
Gal Gadot is everyone's favorite superhero right now, and it's for good reason. "Wonder Woman" is a fantastic movie and Gadot is Diana Prince. She was my favorite part of "Batman v Superman," and I'm guessing she'll be my favorite part about "Justice League." But just like all actors, she has that one role that maybe she'd like to take back.
"Kicking Out Shoshana" is an Israeli comedy about a soccer player who is forced to pretend to be gay by a mob boss as punishment for flirting with his girlfriend. The movie tries hard to be funny, but it falls flat and just isn't great. Thankfully, not many people have seen this foreign film and can forget it even exists.
Batman - Ben Affleck
"Gigli" IMDb Score: 2.4
The 2003 film "Gigli" isn't just Ben Affleck's worst movies, it's known as one of Hollywood's worst. The movie stars Affleck as a hit man who falls for Jennifer Lopez during a hostage situation. The movie is supposed to be a comedy, but nothing about it is funny and it's just a disaster from start to finish.
I truly believe Affleck is a fantastic actor when he's in the right role and he has a real talent behind the camera, so it's too bad that this will always be on his resume like an unavoidable black spot.
