the worst movie of the decade

According to Rotten Tomatoes, which aggregates the opinions of over 100 professional movie critics and distills them down to a single numeric "freshness" rating, the absolute worst movie of the decade is Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever.

Oh, don't remember this movie? The 2002 action flick, directed by Wych Kaosayananda, aka Kaos, and starring Lucy Liu and Antonio Banderas, is all kinds of awful. Quantifiably awful, actually, earning a rare 0% freshness rating, and described by critics as "an ungainly mess," "loud and boring," "flat, stale, confusing and lazy," and "a picture for idiots": Going 'Ballistic' on the Decade's Worst Movies.

I actually bought a ticket to see this movie when it opened. I remember really wanting to like it, but the movie just flat out sucked. Unfortunately, this was just one in a string of stinkers from Lucy Liu's post-Ally McBeal movie career. And as for Thai-born director Wych Kaosayananda, the poor guy hasn't made a movie since. Anyway, see the complete list of this decade's worst movies here.
