The worst films in 2022 - Part one

The tastes of the audience and critics often do not coincide when it comes to film productions, but sometimes they find a common language. This is the case with the selection of films made for the end of 2022 by the authors of Variety magazine, Owen Gleiberman and Peter Debruge, who singled out five films that disappointed them the most this year.

Here's their pick of the "worst" movies of 2022:


It seems incredible that a film featuring some of today's most sought-after actors, such as Christian Bale, Robbie Margot, Chris Rock, Robert De Niro, and even the famous singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, can only get a 6.1 rating on the IMDb portal.

And according to Owen Gleiberman, this is a "gifted" rating, since he considers "Amsterdam" a "bizarre fiasco that is both boring and offensive at the same time." This work by David O. Russell is criticized for the absence of a clear theme.

"Set in a 1930s America that looks like it's under glass, 'Amsterdam' finds Bale, Washington and Margot Robbie as part of a completely uninteresting love triangle, but the real theme is an attempted fascist takeover. By the time the film gets to that point, you'll wish Russell started from the beginning," the critic believes.

"Little Ones 2: Gru's Beginning" 

One of the most popular animated franchises of this decade failed to delight critics with a new edition that follows his childhood and his rise to the title of the greatest villain in the world.

"When animated sequels serve no other purpose than to be there, it can be very lifeless. Maybe that's why the fifth installment of 'Despicable Me' seems like the hundred and fifth," stated Gleiberman.

"Bones and All"

After the film "Call Me By Your Name" from 2017, which won the hearts of critics and audiences and soared Timothée Chalamet's career to stardom, the young actor returns to collaborate with director Luca Guadagnino in an unusual love story.

This time, the main protagonists are Lee (Shalame) and Maren (Taylor Russell), two young people who fall in love and travel across America on the margins of society, because they are cannibals. The audience gave the film a 7.1 rating, but according to Gleiberman, it doesn't deserve that much." The audience discovered that almost nothing happens in two hours and ten minutes," he claims.


In the new adaptation of Stephen King's thriller of the same name, a girl with extraordinary pyrokinetic powers fights to protect her family and herself from sinister forces that want to capture and control her.

The first screen adaptation of that work was made in the eighties, and neither then, nor now, it failed to delight the audience and critics.

"Why make a remake of one of the worst Stephen King movies from the eighties? To prove that you can make an even worse version" claims the critic.
