The Most Disappointing Movies of 2017

Updated May 12, 2020 6.2k votes 909 voters 12.4k views38 items

While some of the highly anticipated movies this year turned out to be great films, many films were huge disappointments. Featuring sequels, adaptations, and remakes, 2017's most disappointing movies is a mixed batch of box office flops and terribly reviewed films. What was the most disappointing movie of 2017?

Action sequels, like xXx: Return of Xander Cage and Underworld: Blood Wars, failed to thrill fans of the original movies. Big blockbusters, like The Great Wall and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, are not only disappointing films, but are also considered as the worst movies of all time. Even Hollywood stars Tom Hanks and Tom Cruise could not save The Circle and The Mummy

Vote for the most disappointing movies of 2017 and feel free to to add any other film letdowns missing from the list.
