7 Awesome Actors Who Just Made 7 Bad Movies In A Row

7. Bruce Willis

The Seven Awful Movies: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014), The Prince (2014), Vice (2015), Rock the Kasbah (2015), Extraction (2015), Precious Cargo (2016) and Marauders (2016)

It's not-so-coincidental that screen legend and Golden Globes winner Bruce Willis' critical decline began when he started appearing in straight-to-video action flicks for easy paychecks, and in fact, Willis' last critically fresh movie was actually way back in 2012 with the terrific Looper. This was also the last time he actually appeared to be putting any effort into a performance, so it makes sense.

Willis doesn't seem to care much about the actual acting craft these days, but at least the promise of him re-teaming with M. Night Shyamalan for 2019's Glass could see his fortunes turn around soon enough. He's definitely got time to cram in a few more naff direct-to-streaming action flicks first, though.
