The Five Worst Films of 2012...So Far, Written by Karen Benardello Modern day film-making has seemed to have lost its creativity, as directors are more heavily relying on novels, comic books, television shows and other source material to inspire stories for their movies. While some recent film sequels, reboots and movies based on books have garnered financial and critical success, including "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted," there are quite a few who have failed to live up to their potential this year. With 2012 officially half-way gone, the worst movies of the year have already began stacking up. But there are five films that are already making the record books, and not in a good way; whether it's the lack of original ideas, appalling acting or simply not giving a satisfying ending, these movies aren't being remembered for their high quality. 5.

Even with the help of its popular ensemble cast, the movie featured far too many one-dimensional characters and an undeveloped story.
