List Rules Films released in the U.S. in 2014 that were serious disappointments to movie-goers everywhere.

One of the worst feelings is walking out of a theater having been let down by a movie you've been waiting months to see. All that anticipation and enthusiasm for an eagerly awaited film evaporates in theaters, when the movie turns out to be a huge flop. The film duds listed here left audiences wishing they could get their money back, after a disappointing movie experience. But which 2014 films were the most disappointing? Whether they couldn't live up to the hype or just weren't what fans wanted, these disappointing 2014 films flopped in a big way.

It's often sequels and remakes that disappoint movie fans the most, and 2014 was no exception. Transformers: Age of Extinction and Godzilla certainly left franchise fans feeling let down. But original ideas can fail too. 2014 comedies like Sex Tape and Blended disappointed movie buffs too. As did original dramas like Need for Speed and scifi films like Lucy.

Which movies were the most disappointing movies of 2014? Films from directors like Michael Bay, Seth MacFarlane, and Luc Besson all left fans wanting more. But which other movies failed to live up to the hype? Vote below (upvoting the bad movies and downvoting the not-so-bad) and if there are any films that really bummed you out in 2014, but aren't already listed, add them so other movie fans won't also be tricked into disappointment.
