List Criteria: 2013 films that just didn't live up to the hype or sequels that did no justice to earlier installments

List of the most disappointing movies of 2013, as ranked by film critics and movie fans. The anticipation of seeing a film that you’ve been looking forward to since you first saw the trailer is one of the best parts of movie watching. It’s a rush to wait in the dark movie theater for a movie that you’re so sure is going to be awesome. But when the movie fails to live up to your expectations, it becomes a huge disappointment. Sometimes the films you were most looking forward to end up being the most frustrating movie experiences.

 

Usually, the most disappointing movies are sequels or adaptations. Studios behind franchises like Iron Man and Thor try to get a movie out as fast as possible and end up forgetting quality. Many times adaptations of beloved books, like Beautiful Creatures and The Great Gatsby, don’t live up to the author’s words. Other huge movie disappointments come when favorite directors and actors push a film that is mediocre at best.

 

What are the most disappointing movies of 2013? The movies on this list got movie lovers excited, but failed to live up to those expectations. These films had the potential to be classics but ended up as duds.
