Not quite the worst film I've seen, if you can even call it that, but it isn't far off.

4. Goon (2011)

Votes: 79,833 | Gross: $4.17M
Goon is a bit of a weird one. I didn't hate it while watching, but the film simply fails at what it set out to do: it isn't funny. It didn't get a single laugh from me.
6. Total Recall (I) (2012)
PG-13 | 118 min | Action, Adventure, Mystery
A factory worker, Douglas Quaid, begins to suspect that he is a spy after visiting Recall - a company that provides its clients with implanted fake memories of a life they would like to have led - goes wrong and he finds himself on the run.

7. Wrath of the Titans (2012)
PG-13 | 99 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Perseus braves the treacherous underworld to rescue his father, Zeus, captured by his son, Ares, and brother Hades who unleash the ancient Titans upon the world.
Votes: 172,450 | Gross: $83.67M
Another generic sequel with an under-cooked script and an over-reliance on poor CGI, this feature is really dull due to a lack of any characterisation and choppy action set-pieces; there's no sense of fun either.
8. Life of Pi (2012)
PG | 127 min | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy
A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor: a fearsome Bengal tiger.
Votes: 536,473 | Gross: $124.99M
Highly over-rated by critics and audiences alike, this is a genuine snooze-fest with uninspired dialogue and too much CGI for it's own good.
9. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)
PG-13 | 169 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy
A reluctant Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, sets out to the Lonely Mountain with a spirited group of dwarves to reclaim their mountain home, and the gold within it from the dragon Smaug.
Votes: 720,017 | Gross: $303.00M
This is a bore from start to finish, really terrible in my opinion. It has such an inconsistent tone and seems to not understand it's target audience, plus the length is wholly unwarranted and I struggled to sit through it all.
10. The Sweeney (2012)
R | 112 min | Action, Crime, Drama
A hardened detective in the Flying Squad of London's Metropolitan police. Based on the '70s UK TV show.
Votes: 18,104 | Gross: $0.03M
Generic is the only way I can describe this one, it is almost face-palm inducing clichéd from start to finish - so much so that the enjoyment that may be found from some of the action sequences is dampened significantly.
