Despite having a great concept or being based on an amazing novel, these movies somehow managed to mess up the story. Poor execution led them to the way they ended up, which is horrible. Reddit user u/NAJ2OO2 asked the community to share the movies that had great concepts but were poorly executed. Here are 15 poorly executed movies with great concepts.
