Filmmaking is an art form, and like any other work of art, it’s up for the viewer to decide whether they like it or not. However, there are standard practices and techniques that make some films objectively exceptional, like Citizen Kane and The Godfather. However, just as there are film elements that make some movies inherently good, there are others that make films undeniably terrible. These are the films that missed the mark entirely and are considered to be the worst ever made.
Jaws: The Revenge Killed The Franchise
Jaws: The Revenge, otherwise known as Jaws 4, is the third sequel to Steven Spielberg’s Jaws, and the final installment in the Jaws franchise. Released in 1987, the film follows a now-widowed Ellen Brody, who is convinced that a great white shark is seeking revenge against her family, even following them to the Bahamas.
Unsurprisingly, the film was not received well by critics and was finished at lightning speed in just nine months. The film received a score of 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, with Roger Ebert commenting that “it is not simply a bad movie, but also a stupid and incompetent one.”
