Visual effects have come a long way, and now they play a very critical role in making the movie hit the box-office. Thanks to the advent of CGI, filmmakers can do just anything they imagine. There is no shortage of great example of these techniques but some of them are famous for their bad moments. Here are 5 Bad CGI Moments in Famous Films.
1) X-Men Origins: Wolverine
This film is the most maligned in the comic boor genre, including for its post-production. The most important thing of Wolverine is his claws, and everyone loves when he takes them out. But the fan’s were angered when they saw his new metal claws, and they were looking too cartoonish. The claws looked more realistic nine years earlier in the first X-Men.
2) The Hobbit: The battle of the Five Armies
The climatic fight sequence in “Battle of the Five Armies” where Legolas basically defies the law of physics as he runs up a tower. The scene was just a blunder mistake, even the Myth Busters had to come out and explain that it couldn’t be actually possible.
3) The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2
Even for CGI’s, it is really very difficult to animate the human face. But Twilight failed in CGI miserably, when Balant meets her newborn baby for the first time, the baby’s face is bluntly digital. It amuses everyone why the director chose to go with a digital face of the baby rather than they could have used the real baby.
4) Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Some of the Indiana Trilogy pioneered the amazing practical visual effects. A real gopher or even an animatronic one could have led to better results.
