It was all a damn video game.

2019 was a year filled with brilliant plot twists - Thanos dying 20 minutes into Avengers: Endgame, the barmy third act of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the Mysterio reveal in Spider-Man: Far From Home, and pretty much everything in Knives Out, to name just a few.

A well-executed twist can cement a film's greatness, but similarly, a bungled third act revelation can ensure it's nothing more than a cinematic laughing stock. And so, we have the 12 dumbest movie plot twists that graced audiences over the past 12 months.

These twists were largely all anyone was talking about when these movies were released - misguided, idiotic, and perhaps brave as they were.

Each caused the audience to reconsider everything they'd already seen, and either laugh hysterically at the stupidity of the twist or simply bury their head in their hands.

On the flip side, a couple of these movies would've otherwise been totally forgotten were it not for these bats**t plot twists. But now, they're destined to endure in cinematic infamy, possibly as cult classics, forever more...
