7 Good Films Ruined By Terrible Plot Twists
Having a plot twist is almost mandatory for movies nowadays. Viewers can be lulled into a sense of complacency only to be shocked by a sudden twist that seemingly comes out of nowhere. When done well, the plot twist is an amazing device; however, when done poorly, it can ruin a perfectly good movie. Here are 7 movies that were ruined by terrible plot twists:
7. I Am Legend
For a post-apocalyptic movie, I Am Legend didn’t disappoint – until the very the end. When the Darkseekers attack Neville’s house and he gives the cure for virus to Anna and Ethan and lets them escape, and then kills himself and the Darkseekers by blowing up his house, fans were disappointed. The movie ends with Anna and Ethan arriving at the survivor’s camp in Vermont with the cure – but it really should have ended with Neville arriving with them.
6. The Dark Knight Rises
The Dark Knight Rises was considered the weakest link in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and that’s probably because of its weird twists and plot holes. One of the worst twists in the movie was the Miranda Tate/Talia al Ghul storyline. At the end of the film, she reveals that she’s the daughter of Ra’s al Ghul (the villain from the first movie) and she was the one who climbed the wall to escape the prison – not Bane. Bane was her protector, but he’s not the mastermind behind destroying Gotham – that’s Talia, who was acting on her father’s behalf. It was a pretty disappointing twist, especially since Bane was built up to be the ultimate villain, one that Batman couldn’t seem to destroy.
