I would name Terminator-3; simply because the movie was rather exciting for the most part, but at the end they (the actors) were bummed seeing that there was no crystal in the cave, which the Skynet owner had mentioned just before passing out & there was no way to stop the computer virus from spreading throughout the world, activating WMDs and destroying the earth.
I feel they could have 'spiced up' the movie a bit more & could have done a better ending - with the skynet virus being destroyed & the world saved...
So, what are the movies you would name in this regard?
The whole premise of T3 destroys the original concept of the Terminator films. The shitty ending just splits hairs.
The one thing that John conners mother is told in the first Terminator and what is carried through to the second is the statement :"There is no fate but what we make."
But Arnie tells Connor that he was wrong and Judgment Day is inevitable.
If this were true, Why would John Connor tell the warrior from the first film to give his mother this message?
Anyway, bad endings of movies? How about Matchstick Men. Good movie, and then the end. I wanted to shoot the television.
