Action movies that crossed the line between courage and madness!

Action movies are often filled with incredible explosions, unstoppable heroes, and plots that defy the laws of physics. While some of them achieve cult status thanks to their originality and innovation, others cross the line, entering the realm of action so exaggerated that they become unintentionally funny. 

We present to you five action films that, in the opinion of many, have earned the epithet "the stupidest" because of their incredible plots and exaggerated scenarios.

"Plan 9 from Outer Space" (1959)

Although not technically a pure action film, Ed Wood's "Plan 9 from Outer Space" is often mentioned as one of the worst films of all time, and its action sequences are so bad they become comical. With its unconvincing sets, rigid acting, and a plot involving aliens reviving the dead to stop the human race from creating a deadly weapon, this film is a real treat for fans of "so bad they're good" movies.


"The Room" (2003)

Tommy Wiseau's "The Room" is often mentioned in the context of bad movies in general, but its action scenes, including an unconvincing fight and an inexplicable game of football in a tuxedo, add an extra level of absurdity. Although primarily a drama, the film's failed attempts to include elements of thriller and action make it an unforgettable experience.


"Sharknado" (2013)

"Sharknado" is a perfect example of a film that is aware of its absurdity and fully embraces it. The story of a shark-filled tornado terrorizing Los Angeles could be the peak of cinematic creativity or a complete failure, depending on who you ask. In any case, "Sharknado" became a cult hit precisely because of its incredible premise and over-the-top action.


"Batman & Robin" (1997)

When mentioning the "dumbest" action movies, it's hard to leave out "Batman & Robin" by Joel Schumacher. Great costumes, ice jokes Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger), and unconvincing special effects are just some of the elements that secured this film a place in the annals of film failures.

"Gods of Egypt" (2016)

"Gods of Egypt" tries to tell an epic story set in mythological Egypt, but ends up being a confusing mix of unconvincing action, and a plot that often makes no sense. The film was criticized for its white actors in the roles of Egyptian gods, but also for its ridiculous action scenes that confuse more than entertain.

While action movies often offer an escape from reality through spectacular scenes and heroic feats, these films remind us that there is a fine line between brave innovation and complete failure. Whether we love them or hate them, one thing is certain - they left an indelible mark in the history of cinema.
