  • Hey, everyone, I'm Rebecca and welcome to watch Mojo.

  • Today we're counting down our picks for the top 10 action movies that bombed at the box office.

  • So there's nothing that I could do.

  • Is that what you're saying?

  • Can have faith?

  • That means we're looking at action oriented.

  • Films that were massive financial duds were ranking them based on how much money they lost, as well as how much hype they had prior to release.

  • All right, let's check it out.

  • I hear that you are incredibly dangerous.

  • Number 10 Gemini Man.

  • Even though it managed to make it out of development, hell, this film seemed to be doomed.

  • Gemini Man tells the story of Henry Broken, Ah, former Marine turned assassin who's on the run from a clone of himself.

  • Despite the impressive use of de aging technology and solid performances, the sci fi thriller was labeled as a generic action movie with a subpar script at the box office.

  • Gemini Man immediately tanked, bringing in on Lee 173 of the expected $275 million resulting in losses upwards of 75 million for the studios involved.

  • It will live on, though, as one of Will Smith's biggest bombs ever.

  • Number nine.

  • Speed Racer.

  • Based on the classic anime from the 19 sixties, Speed Racer is a bright, colorful racing film about the titular protagonist and his struggles against his fellow racers and corporate greed.

  • Herbert didn't scare you speed with how hard we push our team.

  • I just wanted you to see how committed we are.

  • The winning The movie was not well received at the time of its release, but has since developed a cult following.

  • Nevertheless, Speed Racer Onley grossed a little over $90 million on a budget of 120 million, making it a bomb upon release.

  • Oh my God, did you see that?

  • A real single set jump into a Flying King.

  • I know he blew up at Fuji, but this kid is flat out magic, given that it was up against Iron Man, the film that kick started the enormously successful M C.

  • U.

  • It's a wonder it even made as much as it did.

  • You think you could drive a car and change the world?

  • It doesn't work like that?

  • Maybe not, but it's the only thing I know how to do, and I got to do something.

  • Number eight.

  • John Carter Captain John Carter, Virginia.

  • A Disney sci fi action film adapted from a series of pulp adventure novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

  • John Carter is about the eponymous Civil War veteran who finds himself on Mars and becomes embroiled in a conflict there between Martian factions.

  • So Deng is winning the war.

  • I say.

  • Let Redman kill Redman until only thoughts remain.

  • The movie had a troubled production, and its budget reportedly ballooned during that time, which, along with advertising expenses, put the price tag in around $350 million.

  • This well, not do at all.

  • Even John Carter's final gross of $284 million wasn't enough to recoup Disney's heavy investment, making it a very expensive bomb.

  • Indeed, fitting solution for your setback.

  • What did you say?

  • Cut number seven Catwoman Sharing its name if nothing else, with the comic character of the same name.

  • Catwoman follows a woman who gains catlike powers after being drowned by a villainous cosmetics company.

  • You hear that?

  • It's called silence.

  • That's all I ever wanted.

  • Now keep it down.

  • Lambasted by critics for failing on nearly every production level, it's gratuitous sexualization and its lack of ties to its supposed source material.

  • Catwoman also failed to connect with audiences.

  • Managing to Onley grows 82 million on a budget of $100 million.

  • The other night you killed somebody.

  • She was a nice girl.

  • Why Cat Got your tongue?

  • Cats may have nine lives, but Catwoman had trouble scraping together.

  • Even one women didn't keep out.

  • Number six Alexander Ah, historical epic about the life of Alexander the Great, the famed Macedonian general and ruler, Alexander failed to live up to the greatness of its namesake.

  • Critics largely panned the film, citing its poor pacing, historical inaccuracies and lack of involving characters as some of its major faults.

  • What disturbs me most is not your lack of respect for my judgment.

  • It's your contempt for a world far older than ours.

  • Meanwhile, audiences were probably turned off by it's laborious runtime and the sparse action.

  • Although it grossed 167 million on a $155 million budget, advertising and other costs still put the film behind around twice that much.

  • Number five.

  • The rhythm section releasing a movie around the Super Bowl can be risky in the rhythm section proved to be no exception.

  • It wasn't an accident.

  • There was a bomb on that plane.

  • This action drama film stars Blake Lively as a grieving mother who finds out her family was killed not in a tragic plane crash but instead a terrorist attack.

  • Why are you here for your clothes on?

  • How would you do that?

  • The set up for the movie must not have appealed to many as it received the worst wide opening of all time, making Onley $2.8 million of the expected 9 to 12 million in its first weekend.

  • With losses expected to be in the 30 to 40 million range, this action movie was just a little offbeat.

  • Not quite my Temple Number four.

  • The Lone Ranger, this Western action film, adapted from a long running radio, Siri's and other media, follows the title Texas Ranger and his Native American sidekick as they team up to fight outlaws.

  • Going somewhere?

  • Yes, No.

  • Like other entries on our list, the Lone Ranger suffered critically as well as financially as many found it overflowing with too many ideas, and the whitewashing of Toronto was a rather sore spot.

  • Indians like Coyote he Killed leave nothing to waste.

  • Tell me King Wasabi.

  • What does the white man killed for the movie had many production issues and cost at least $225 million though that figure blokes to over $375 million with advertising costs.

  • Since it on Lee managed to make $260 million the Lone Ranger managed to be a singularly disappointing bomb.

  • Worst.

  • How could this be worse?

  • Could develop a niche on your nose number.

  • 3 47 Ronan.

  • Set in a fantasy world of 18th century Japan, 47 Ronin is about a group of disgraced slash outcast samurai, or Ronan who try to get revenge on the men who disgraced their former Lord.

  • They say only demons have the power to see past a witches disguise.

  • Are you a demon?

  • No.

  • While its visuals and action were praised by some, most found the characters and the story flat, and it was especially unsuccessful in connecting with Japanese viewers.

  • I take evolve before you, but I will not rest until justice is done.

  • It also failed spectacularly at the box office, making on Lee $151 million on a $225 million budget, a figure that includes marketing costs with its total losses amounting to around as much as it made when accounting for inflation.

  • If I accept my faith, no one will question the honor about people Number two Sahara Anak Shin Comedy adventure film Sahara follows adventurers searching for a ship in the Sahara Desert while also becoming caught up in a fight against a warlord spreading a deadly plague.

  • High hold on.

  • While many of the films on this list so far have been considered bad, most criticism of this adventure flick is about how generic and dull it is.

  • Their treasure hunters General Marine salvage.

  • They call themselves hardly your military elite.

  • Don't underestimate them.

  • One of the most expensive flops of all time, Sahara made $119 million at the box office, but it's total cost was a whopping $160 million.

  • It seems like the executives in charge invested a bit too much in their own search for treasure.

  • You should put the money to better use.

  • Mhm like containing this plague.

  • Is it telling that I have seen exactly zero of the movies on this list, including the honorable mentions?

  • Yes.

  • Yes, it is.

  • All right.

  • Well, you would think that based on the stars, that number one could have pulled in at least some audience members.

  • But no, it failed miserably.

  • So let's look through the honorable mentions or dishonorable, I guess.

  • And then we'll see.

  • What?

  • Our biggest action movie box office bomb.

  • Waas.

  • So you really want to attack this thing?

  • Yes.

  • Yes, I dio the guy you were talking to.

  • What's your supervisor's name?

  • Me and Hitchens.

  • Maybe it's better if the two of you than you aren't around the next part.

  • You can take your chances with judgment, or you can join the LAPD.

  • Critics panned the film adapted from a comic book as being highly derivative of Ghostbusters and men in black, while also being rather predictable and nonsensical.

  • Yeah, Look, I'm sorry to disappoint, but this is crap.

  • Audiences stayed away in droves to as ripe.
