Top 10 Worst Movie Endings of All Time

The ending is often the most important part of a film. A movie can be great for two hours, but if that final act doesn't work, it can sink the entire movie. In the history of movies, there are a lot of good movies that have just had the worst endings of all time. Here is our ranking of the worst offenders of them all. This is a pretty comprehensive list but I am sure we may have missed some along the way. Feel free to let us know in the talk backs below if you agree with us or if you have suggestions for other terrible movie endings.

#10 - SAVAGES

Oliver Stone's films have been very uneven in recent years. Despite some critical acclaim, the reception for his unique brand of paranoia has dulled in the last decade. One of Stone's most recent films, SAVAGES, was a blood-soaked action film along the lines of NATURAL BORN KILLERS. It also featured a violent ending that pulls the rug out from under the viewer by revealing it all to be a made up dream by Blake Lively's character. It spoils what could have been a very nihilistic ending with one that makes the audience feel cheated.

#9 - X-MEN: THE LAST STAND

It was bad enough that Brett Ratner shit all over Bryan Singer's first two films by closing out the trilogy with a weak take on the mutant mythos. On top of that, Ratner included the deaths of virtually every major hero in the series and left the rest powerless thanks to the mutant "cure". It neutered the entire series and was thankfully erased from the timeline in DAYS OF FUTURE PAST.

#8 - SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE

I love, love, love Richard Donner's original film. Between Gene Hackman and Christopher Reeve, this is still one of the best superhero films of all time. But, despite the retro goodness that helped us believe a man could fly, SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE also features the inexplicable ability for Superman to fly around the Earth and turn back time. It is a pretty moving sequence and shows Superman's love for Lois, but it makes absolutely no sense. Wouldn't everyone have flown off the planet and had our gravity totally out of whack? Not to nitpick the impossibility of time travel, but this just makes no sense.

#7 - GREASE

Another case of a classic with a completely nonsensical moment that virtually ruins everything. After a fairly grounded musical comedy with a couple of dream sequences in between, GREASE closes with our favorite mismatched couple finding each other and reconciling. John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John are one cute couple and you really root for their characters before they drive off into the sunset. Only, they don't drive....they fly. Yeah, their f*cking car flies. If this were another dream sequence, I would be somewhat okay with it, but this doesn't show any signs of being fantasy. Way to ruin a movie with something completely stupid.

#6 - A.I.

I am a big fan of A.I., but even I can recognize that the ending is depressing and weak compared to the rest of the film. Haley Joel Osment is phenomenal as David, the robot boy who wants to become real. His journey is powerful and moving but the ending is all over the place. After freezing in a glacier during the next ice age, David is awakened by the futuristic android beings that have taken over Earth. He is then given the shitty news that he will never become a real boy and is instead given a single day to be with his "mother" which will be followed by the futile and pointless existence he never wanted to endure. Yeah, it basically is the most depressing ending ever.

#5 - I AM LEGEND

Richard Matheson's beloved post-apocalyptic vampire novel had a long journey to the big screen. But, instead of the long-attached Arnold Schwarzenegger, we get Will Smith. Instead of practical effects, we get CGI abominations. Couple that with the ending that flies in the face of the original novel and you have a movie that fails to live up to it's potential. The alternate ending included on the DVD release follows the source material more closely and adds even more fuel to the pile that is Francis Lawrence's final cut of the film.

#4 - CONTACT

Brilliant scientist Carl Sagan never lived to see his novel become a feature film. He likely would have been very pleased with Robert Zemeckis' film despite audiences being very underwhelmed by the big reveal at the end. After two hours of waiting for the big reveal, the alien beings end up just looking like Jodie Foster's character's father. I guess in a spiritual sense, it is a magical and touching reveal, but coupled with cheesy special effects that do not stand the test of time, it feels very weak after the promise of a life-altering reveal.

#3 - MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL

Monty Python are The Beatles of comedy. All of their films are cult classics and recognized as varying degrees of masterpieces with some being reissued as a part of the revered Criterion Collection. Still, their most recognized film, MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL ends with the ultimate cop-out of an ending. As a massive battles begins, the scene is interrupted by police officers who end production and arrest the characters in a very meta-moment. It comes across as a weak way to cap off what is a work of genius and becomes less and less funny the more times I watch it.

#2 - THE VILLAGE

I have defended THE VILLAGE as one of M. Night Shyamalan's better films, but I completely understand why many hate this ending. What is supposed to be the massive twist that reveals the film is set in a contemporary time period and not the 19th century, it feels underwhelming and anticlimactic. The monsters aren't real and the world is a fiction created by the adults of the community. Yeah, I understand why many people hate this twist.

#1 - INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL

The fourth Indiana Jones film is one of the most hated sequels of all time. With many equating it to the STAR WARS prequels, KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL also donned the phrase "nuke the fridge" in regards to a franchise that has overstayed it's welcome. The big question we have as a fifth film prepares to debut in a couple of years is how they can come back from introducing Shia LaBeouf as Indy's protege and son along with the CGI heavy debacle that included fire ants, monkeys, and translucent aliens in a giant UFO. Yeah, this movie was a mess all over, but the ending is really the biggest crime to the franchise.

Wrong!

This is not some deus ex machina sort of thing. They've been setting this up since the "modern historian" was slashed to death by the knight. The glimpses of the police at work throughout the film are telling you that the action of the movie is somehow occurring within the real world (whatever that is). And the ending simply lets those two worlds collide in the most normal way possible.

Spielberg did not know how to end the movie, so he did so three different times. None of them are satisfying, and they are all tedious. I felt that way about the movie as a whole, but the ending cemented my dislike

Top 10 Worst Endings, not scenes or moments in movies you hated which were either not the actual ending or had nothing to do with the ending.

"The fridge scene, Shia LaBeouf, heavy CGI, fire ants, monkeys, and translucent aliens"...... Yeah, all of which had nothing to do with the film's ending. Indy marries Marion.....that's the ending. Your stating why you dislike this film, and yet you wrote nothing about the film's actual ending. Your suppose to be listing worst movie endings, and most of your picks had nothing to do the film's actual ending.

The ending is brilliant, but understandably frustrating

I can see how it feels frustrating, because you're ready for a big battle, but they WERE setting up the ending gag throughout the entire movie.

You do realize that is the SAME ending as Sagan's book, right?

The aliens don't just look like her father, they are a reflection of him in her mind...they pulled the image from her brain and used it to fashion a form that she would not find horrifying.

So, Indy and the Crystal Skull is the worst ending of all time? The movie may have been messy, but the ending seems to be one of the least broken parts of it. In fact it seems to fit well with the style of film.

This may be the first list I am so genuinely puzzled about. While there are a few I can agree with, there are many on here that, even if you're biased, don't really make sense on an objective level. Heck, you put Savages on here, but miss something like Repo Men? Or Carrie II? Or

There are a ton of really horrible, awful endings out there that are far worse than the ones on this list.

NO! He's NOT spinning the Earth around using momentum.

Sigh, I find myself having to explain this a lot recently for some reason. The short answer is: the Earth spinning backwards is the RESULT of Superman going back in time, not the CAUSE.

Think of it this way - he's going so fast, he goes back in time. Now if we ignore how light actually works, what should things look like as you are rewind time? Exactly, they would appear to go backwards. Same here. Superman's not using his momentum to twirl the Earth around, that's ridiculous. So the

Exactly, they would appear to go backwards. Same here. Superman's not using his momentum to twirl the Earth around, that's ridiculous. So the statement above about people flying off the Earth and how stupid this would be is true, if that is what is actually happening, except it's not. Unfortunately the visual cue of his going backwards in time is confused as the cause. I will agree that however Superman goes back through time (as does the Flash and probably others), you'd wonder why they don't do it more often to fix a lot of stuff.

Your theory is interesting, but a number of factors are still questionable:
1) They specifically show him flying against the spin of the Earth, as if to imply his momentum is changing our spin
2) Flying closer and closer to the speed of light, he would only be moving FORWARD in time relative to everyone on Earth. There is not corresponding jump BACKWARD unless he were to actually break the light barrier.

Also, the statement about people flying off the EArth is stupid. Gravity as we experience it is composed of two forces: gravitation (two masses pulling each other together) and centrifugal force (the spin of the Earth). Note that gravitation pulls us IN to Earth, and centrifugal force pushes us out away from the spin axis (stronger at the equator, nil at the poles). Gravitation is significantly stronger than centrifugal force, which is why we do NOT fly off into space on a day to day basis. If you stopped the Earth spinning, all you would do is remove centrifugal force and then you would be even more strongly held to Earth. So the "off into space" sentence is completely physically wrong.

What is with this list. How is this a worst ending? It fits Monty Python to a T. This kind of shtick is a staple in Flying Circus. Have you seen the show? Maybe you're not terribly familiar with Flying Circus? If you think this is a worst ending, it only shows a lack of understanding of Monty Python and their brand of humor.

Another one I don't get the critique of. How was this bad? There was a huge point to the ending. In fact, it was pretty major to the message of the film. So how was it bad? I felt it was very poignant and true to Jodie Fosters character. She lacked spiritual belief and the answer she had been searching for the entire film ended up being a spiritual one, albeit not the way she or the audience likely expected.

Really? Worst? This bit lasts mere moments and, while it doesn't make sense, by this point in the movie it doesn't have to. Heck, I'd argue that Sandy changing who she almost completely just so she could win the heart of some douchebag and his douchebag friends is worse than the flying car.

Danny changed for Sandy too. Remember he lettered in track and was wearing his letter sweater at the carnival, although he did remove it when he saw her. That was an even bigger change of character for him as it took all season of running and doing well in a sport. She only had to get a perm and buy a new outfit and attempt to smoke. . :) I always pictured them to stay together and each remain true to themselves in the end.

I think Indy marrying Marion at the end is the most unrealistic thing inside a movie that are already filled with nonsensical things like CGI monkey swings and UFOs. I mean, imagine meeting someone you've had a relationship with decades ago who had brought up a son you never knew. There's tons of issues that needs to be worked out before they could even think about marrying. It's not an impossibility, it's just that it feels forced to the viewers. So unless I'm still the same 7 year old kid

I don't see anything wrong with this ending.

INDY marries MARION, whom he loves. Then we get teased about MUTT taking his place. That showed that, if there were to be a 5th movie (at the time, it wasn't a sure thing), INDY would still be the protagonist. That was funny and clever.

As OscarXP25 said, this twist ending is complex. It's Shyamalan's most complex twist ending, actually. Also, the final scene (the actual ending) is powerful: The elders choose to ignore the bad things that happened during the movie and continue with their lie. We also don't find out if LUCIUS will live.

People seem to forget an important fact.

This wasn't the 1st adaptation of the novel. You see, the 1st movie adaptation must be true to the source material in essence if not in details. Every other following adaptation (not counting direct sequels) can have changes, because then the source material' author and fans have already been pleased. Also, directors and script writers (as aritsts) feel the need to place their own vision. Not to mention that the ending here, on its own, is a bg emotional payoff nonetheless.

The ending is MAGNETO in the park. The way the cliffhanger is filmed is great... but it was confusing as to how he got his powers back. I didn't understand it until I read about it online (that means the makers did a bad job). This scene showed the movie's main problem: The makers didn't know if they wanted to finish the franchise or not. They wanted to add closure while leaving this open-ended.

The ending of Crystal Skull didn't bother me as much as the other messy parts of it. And I still think the fridge scene was meant to upstage the raft skydiving from Temple of Doom. I still don't know what they were thinking with the fridge thing. I wonder how they will oust the fridge scene in Indy 5?

The big reveal at the end was disappointing, yes. However the worst thing about this movie is John Hurt's character. "The entire world watched a gigantic alien structure built, it's dozens of stories tall and cost billions of dollars. Then it exploded, but that's okay because I secretly built a second one that no one noticed!"

Alex, you really say the worst thing about this movie is that major characters were killed? I was glad because of that. It gave the movie real tension. And don't blame it all on Ratner when he didn't write the movie. People keep forgeting that.

I'm NOT defending this movie in any way, but it sounds like the only reason you hate the ending is because it was different from the book, which isn't fair. Imagine if you had never read the book, would you still feel the same way?

There is no problem with this ending. The whole movie is a teen pop fantasy. High schoolers typically don't suddenly break out into professionally choreographed song-and-dance numbers either.

The ending is perfect for this movie

HOLY GRAIL messes with our heads the entire time - the modern day police investigation threading through the film, the French soldiers who happen to be in two castles at the same time, the "important clue" that ends up being nothing at all - that the end fits it perfectly.

I hated the ending the first time I saw the film, but now I appreciate its brilliance.

RIGHT, then

There will be NO besmirchment of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It's that kind of blinkered philistine pig-ignorance I've come to expect from non-creative garbage. You sit there on your loathsome, spotty behind...
Ahem... sorry. (I agree with all the others on the list though.)

Yes to most of these... Well, the entire X-Men 3 movie was a disaster, just not the ending.

Bollocks!

This is one of the most hilarious endings ever. The setup for it is genius, where we see the beginnings of the investigation of the historian's murder peppered into the film. As a kid I didn't quite get it, but considering how bonkers the movie is, it fits right in.

Watch the Vincent Price film "The Last Man on Earth." It's a much better adaptation of Matheson's novel.

It's actually a very good ending and I think this is the last M.Night's great film. Everything built up to the ending and I was awed by it, like how he ended The Sixth Sense.

I actually like the ending. It's like Joel Schumacher's Flatliners where Hell is each individual's definition of what hell and torment should be.

What's the ending? I refused to see the movie so I'd like to know. You talked about all the other endings, but you just say this one is bad. Well. What's the ending?

After Indy and Marion get married, Indy bends her over the side of a bed and they go at it for 5 minutes. It's a little disgusting watching two geriatrics go at it.

One that has always bothered me is...

HEAT. Great movie until the unbelievable ending. Robert DeNiro's criminal mastermind has beaten the cops. He has the girl. He has the money. He has a way out of the country. There's even a scene where Al Pacino's cop has admitted defeat. But then, right at the very last second, DeNiro's supposedly ultra-smart character does something SO RIDICULOUSLY STUPID that that he loses everything. It's like something out of the Hayes Office Code of the '30s, that insisted the bad guys could never win,

I loved this ending and the movie. The whole point of the movie is to show that there could never be a Utopia that the characters yearn for because evil and negative emotions will always exist.

I hate the concept of this ending

I won't spoil it, for this who haven't seen it, but I hate the device they used to pass this off as the ending. It was the cherry on top of an already shitty movie
