List of the most overrated films of 2013, as ranked by critics and movie fans. The merit of movies is often rated by the box office,the positive reviews, and word of mouth. Unfortunately, the films that receive the most praise and make the most money are often overrated in almost every aspect.In 2013, the films that made the most money were mostly parts of franchises that have a long history and loyal fan base. However, the movies rarely, if ever, lived up to their potential and promise. Other films received lots of buzz based on the trailer, the stars, and critics, but were ultimately not that great.

Some of the films of this list were critically acclaimed allover the world, including Prisoners and Twelve Years a Slave, but were given far more praise then they earned. Most of the films on this list may have made huge profits, but for all the special effects and big name actors, the films lacked quality.

What are the most overrated films of 2013? This list features movies that made hundreds of millions of dollars, starred the biggest actors of the present, and received tons of buzz, but ultimately weren’t worth the ticket cost.
