25 Plot Details That Get In The Way Of A Good Movie

Movies are complicated. It’s not good enough to just have a good script. It’s not good enough to just have good actors. It’s not good enough to just have a good producer. You could have all those things and still make a cringe-worthy movie. In fact, all it takes is one bad quote. One cliche line can mess everything up. It can be a great movie right up until the end, but that cliche just ruins it.

So today we’re going to be looking at what those things are. Cliches of course are one of them, but there are a lot more. How about when the countdown takes forever. It’s a 3 second countdown that takes almost 3 minutes. Okay that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but forever countdowns definitely don’t earn the movie any extra points in the cool department. And then there’s product placement, unnecessary accents, and the dreaded unlimited ammo guns. All that these things do is serve to mess up the movie. As we said, it can be a great film with perfect acting and directing, but all it takes is one of these little plot detail mess ups to just ruin the whole thing. These are 25 Plot Details That Get In The Way Of A Good Movie.

This is when seemingly unsolvable problems are all of a sudden solved by some out-of-the-blue plot twist. Bond gadgets are a perfect example of this. Those things are used once, and then never again.
