With many of the amazing movies released, there are some of the movies reviews that the most patient viewers couldn’t finish and mentioned on Reddit Movie.
When it comes down to it, the movies are not loved and enjoyed by all but are completely subjective. However, sometimes the movies released are not able to sit throughout with the most patient viewers.
One may ask how difficult it might be to sit down for a 2-hour movie, but it can be for some bad films. The reasons for not sitting throughout the entire movie can vary, as it can have a terrible end, or misunderstanding of the source material or so on. Here we are going to share some of the movies which were turned off after 20 minutes, as the reviews stated on Reddit.
10. 6 Underground (2019)
An American action-thriller movie, 6 Underground, is directed by Michael Bae and was released in 2019. Ryan Reynolds is the central character in the movie who plays the role of Magnet S. Johnson, who have earned fortunes from his inventions and has faked his own death.
The movie viewers couldn’t finish because of the editing of the movie; it is stated that it was horrible. Editing is one of the biggest and most prominent concerns in Michael Bay movies, and in 6 Underground, it became impossible to ignore the mistake.
The action-based movie sure included a lot of amazing action, but because of the editing, it became really hard to keep track of it. The whole two hours of the movie included too messy editing, which made it impossible to follow the story and everything.
9. Mank (2020)
An American black-and-white biographical drama, Mank, released in 2020, was directed by David Fincher. TriscuitCracker is not sure why this movie exists, and they turned it off midway with one thought in their minds “very well filmed. But I kept wondering why I should care.”
David made this film just as an admiration to his late father Jack Fincher, on which the movie was based. The screenplay was written by his father in his 90s, and David did it only for the sake of his father.
Apart from the intention behind making this film, the whole movie is based on a rumour that Orson Welles, considered to be one of the most influential filmmakers, didn’t have as much of a hand in the screenplay as people think, the reason it became pointless.

A sci-fi action film, The Matrix Resurrection, was released recently in 2021 was directed by Lana Wachowski. The premiere was a sequel to the 2003 film The Matrix Revolutions, which makes it the fourth instalment in the Matrix Series.
As the movie included so many long lectures throughout the whole of The Matrix Resurrections, it was expected that the viewers would fall asleep during one of the many exposition dumps. Another interesting fact is that the film was not only released in theatres but also on HBO max; some of the viewers not just fell asleep but turned it off.
One of the Reddit Movies which the viewers are saying “couldn’t be bothered to finish.” At many times during the movie, viewers felt that it was way too much work than entertainment. It is absolutely exciting to make viewers think, but this sequel makes no sense.

DickRagelessMD comments that the movie Wonder Woman 1984, a DC movie, was impossible to finish and stated, “incredibly bad, just shockingly, stunningly bad.” The story did get a few things right in the movie, but the portrayal of villains and the odd love story left the viewers with nothing but disappointment.

5. The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard (2021)
An American comedy movie, The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, directed by Patrick Hughes, was released recently in 2021.

Some of the audience stated that it was too much and they couldn’t finish the comedy. They stated that they “fell asleep about halfway through and had zero interest in finishing it.”
The first part, The Hitman’s Bodyguard, did receive good reviews, and it became the best buddy cop comedy in the 2010s. But its sequel, released in 2021, was full of tired genre clichés. The plot was too zigzagging, and it is no surprise that because of all the reasons, the viewers fell asleep.
