11 Crappiest Movies of Christian Bale’s Career

By Agent Bedhead | Seriously Random Lists | July 18, 2012 | Comments ()


Terminator Salvation: Oddly enough, Bale himself ruined this movie by insisting upon massive script rewrites to give his John Connor more screentime. Bad Bale.

Harsh Times: Even with Bale's talent, he couldn't pull off a "Hispanic in L.A." accent, and the dialogue was ridiculous as well.

Equilibrium: Not only was this movie a cheap-looking ripoff of Blade Runner and Fahrenheit 451, but Gun-Fu? Really.

Pocahontas: Love can conquer hate. Unfortunately, love cannot counter crappiness.

Public Enemies: Sure, this wasn't a terrible movie, but with director Michael Mann at the helm, it should have been so much better.

Reign of Fire: Some might say this movie defies critical analysis. Others would say it's just crappy.

The Portrait of a Lady: Dare I declare that John Malkovich was the one-noted, proverbial weak link here? It pains me to admit as much.

Captain Corelli's Mandolin: This was easily one of Nicolas Cage's crappiest films as well. And that's saying something.

Swing Kids: This movie was historically accurate and, in short, a total mess.

Velvet Goldmine: Loved the soundtrack. Shame about the movie.

Newsies: Yes, I know this movie featured Christian Bale dancing. And I know you loved it. Still, it was a crappy (and cheesy) movie.
