10 Sci-Fi Movies That Were Absolutely Flawless Except For A Single Scene
10. Blade Runner
The sci-fi classic “Blade Runner” is perhaps one of the few movies that have actually corrected its flawed scenes over its different releases. The original theatrical cut sees a more upbeat ending where the protagonists escape from the dystopian urban hellscape to the beautiful countryside, raising the question of why others don’t do the same.
9. Dark City
The murder mystery film with a creepy noir aesthetic, “Dark City” follows Murdoch, a man on the run from the police and inhuman-looking Strangers. However, one scene gives the audience information on who these Strangers are before Murdoch discovers the truth, placing them ahead of the character rather than with him, awkwardly ruining the mystery.
8. The Last Jedi
Although fans have mixed feelings about “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” the film’s visuals and acting performances are some of the best in the series. However, the film could have done without the scene of the enslaved children of Canto Bight playing with the homemade toys of Luke Skywalker and a broom-holding boy staring up at the stars.
7. The Lost World
The first sequel in the series that’s filled with tributes to older monster films, “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” might be one of Steven Spielberg’s most underrated movies. Perhaps one reason this film is overlooked is thanks to the scene where Ian Malcolm’s daughter Kelly uses gymnastics to defeat the velociraptors, a species of apex predators.
6. Terminator Salvation
“Terminator Salvation” takes the audience into the future war only seen in a few glimpses in past movies. Sadly, the film suffers from a terrible and unrealistic ending where a badly injured John Conner receives a heart transplant in the middle of a battlefield from the cyborg character, playing into the Tin Man metaphor from “The Wizard of Oz.”
