Number 1? Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever.
“Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever” had few fans upon its release in 2002. The $70 million movie, starring Antonio Banderas and Lucy Liu, was a box office failure, making just $14.3 million domestically and less than $6 million overseas.
And critics were scathing. “A career low for both Liu and Banderas,” said Empire magazine. “Ecks this one off your must-see list,” wrote the New York Post’s Lou Lumenick.
But, seven years after its release, “Ecks” can now claim one honor: It’s the worst movie of the decade, according to RottenTomatoes.com, the movie review aggregator site.
I call bullshit. Battlefield Earth is only listed at #27. Not even close to the top ten. And I would rather watch my lovely wife devoured by wolves while having drops of vinegar placed into my eyes than see that awful, awful movie again.
RiffTrax offers a hilarious helping of audio commentary that I would recommend purchasing if you absolutely have to see John Travolta as a 9-foot tall Jamaican spaceman.
