There are times when the very thing that we believe will solve the problem becomes the biggest problem itself. Unfortunately, over the years, many attempted decisions simply just bounce back right on the face. For instance, we have seen the humans of ‘Snowpiercer’ and Sarah Connor from ‘The Terminator.’ Here are a few more movies where the solution is the biggest problem.
1. Avengers: Age Of Ultron
Another MCU action movie. Tony Stark and Bruce Banner are probably the two elite geniuses. They have incredible minds that allow them to create sophisticated weapons. However, being intelligent enough doesn’t make you superior. The sole purpose behind creating Ultron was to protect the World. Ultron finally decided to destroy the whole of humankind to save the world. You know the rest.
Another science fiction horror story. The nightmare happens when Mira Sorvino’s Dr. Susan Tyler creates a mantis hybrid that releases an enzyme that accelerates the cockroaches’ metabolism, causing them to expire and end the spread of the disease. Eventually, they start evolving thousands of generations over and become even more dangerous than the cockroaches.
3. The Terminator
A lot of trouble could’ve been saved if Sarah could go back in time and demolish the leftover arm along with all the remainder of murderbots.
4. The Cloverfield Paradox
The group of astronauts abroad in a space station soon decided to solve Earth’s energy crisis. It didn’t work out quite well. However, they ended up opening different portals of parallel universes. And unleashed several monsters and their horrors to threaten Earth.
5. I Am Legend
Science is ruthless, indeed. For example, the scientists of I am Legend made an attempt to re-engineer the measles virus to cure cancer genetically. Later, it becomes lethal, infecting 99% of the world’s population. Gradually, the solution becomes the destruction of humanity.
This movie contains so many problems already, but when John started time-tempering to communicate with his father, it has cost him his own life. Later, it turned out; his time-tempering somehow managed to save the life of Jack Shepherd, a serial killer. But, right at that moment, it got messier.
In this sci-fi thriller, The humans tried fixing climate change and ended up inducing a whole new ice age, the biggest threat for Earth.
8. The Dark Knight
This is a classic. When The Gotham Police Department and Batman finally detain The Joker, they must’ve thought they got a big break. But wait, we all know Joker only gets caught when he wants to. Until and unless it’s not happening. Right? That is what happened next. It was all a part of his plan which led the policemen to a chaotic situation that became quite troublesome.
9. The Cabin In The Woods
At the end of the 2012 horror satire, the surviving leads find out they are a part of a ritual sacrifice to satisfy the “Ancient Ones.” And stop them from returning to the Earth’s ground and wreaking havoc on life. Afterward, lead characters save themselves; they doom all of Earth to annihilation at the hands of the powerful monstrosities that lie below.
10. Back To The Future
A smash-hit blockbuster where Marty McFly made his life even more difficult by saving his dad from a car accident. The story where a choice, reversed perfectly.
Peter Venkman (Bill Murray) has the brilliant idea of not thinking of anything so that Gozer has nothing to draw on for the Ghostbusters’ destruction form. So Ray Stantz, played by Dan Aykroyd, tried to think of the most harmless thing he could think of. That creature turned out to be the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. Unfortunately, Ray’s solution had the unintended consequence of becoming their problem.
Even after being the best among the operators, Judi Dench’s M made a terrible mistake. Handing over Raoul Silva directly led to M’s demise at the end of Skyfall.
Again a story of something bad associated with the weather. However, neutralizing climate change is a prominent cause; putting unlimited weather-based power in the hands of humanity probably is not.
14. The Dark Knight Rises
It all began when Taita Al Ghul and the League of Shadows used the nuclear fusion reactor. They used it to keep all of the Gotham City hostages and on lockdown. So to sum it up, Wayne’s solution to a very real problem becomes a very real problem itself.
