What Movie Plot Twist Or Climax Was Just So Underwhelming?

Sometimes, these are more memorable — and not in a good way.

Sometimes, a movie has a plot twist or a climax that hits perfectly.

But other leaves you feeling sort of disappointed.


Maybe the climax of Beastly felt sweet but sort of underwhelming for those who loved the more dramatic climax of Beauty and the Beast.

Perhaps you were loving the way Breaking Dawn: Part 2 changed things up from the books and killed Carlisle, only to be disappointed when it was revealed to be only a vision.

Or you thought Voldemort fading away in an empty courtyard while absolutely NO ONE witnessed his final battle with Harry was a lame climax for the last Harry Potter film.

Maybe you liked the direction that the climax of Promising Young Woman was taking, but then just couldn’t get behind the ending.
