WANT to spoil any potential enjoyment of a movie before you watch it? Find out there’s a twist. Here’s five films with surprises you wouldn’t have seen coming, but now definitely will:
Just saying that this isn’t a normal alien invasion flick ruins this film. First because you know Amy Adams and Hawkeye aren’t going to tool up and kick butt, and second because you’ll be scanning every sad montage for clues instead of enjoying the freaky aliens in their Terry’s Chocolate Orange-segment spaceship.
Brooding private investigator Leonardo DiCaprio tries to find an escaped psychiatric patient, but there’s a twist. A twist you’ll spot, reject as f**king stupid because it would make the whole movie a heap of shit, and then watch slowly unfold in disbelief. Look out for it.
Oh, the hype around this M Night Shyamalan film when it first came out. Who are the hooded monsters attacking this olde worlde village and its sexy, God-fearing populace? Will there be a plausible explanation for all the strange goings-on? No. It will be bollocks and you’ll have guessed it.
There’s twists and turns all over this sprawling Christopher Nolan effort about rival Victorian magicians competing to discover who’s the biggest arsehole. And just when you think you’ve followed them all, you reach the big hulking mega-twist in the last five minutes that would require a full rewatch to work out if it’s even plausible.
A slimy man’s hot wife goes missing and – surprise surprise – all is not what it seems. You’ll be on the edge of your seat waiting for Rosamund Pike to appear so you can stop staring at Ben Affleck’s gormless hunkiness. The twist is literally the only good bit, and you knew it was coming so none of it’s any fun at all.
