‘Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever’ (2002)

The Film: Ecks (Antonio Banderas) and Sever (Lucy Liu) blow things up in this action-movie bomb.

The Box Office: The film had a $70 million budget … but grossed only $14.3 million.

Sample Review: Critics opened fire. Keith Phipps wrote in The A.V. Club that it “looks like a video-game promo, has a story that plays like the fifth episode of a struggling syndicated action show, and feels like a headache waiting to happen.”

‘Pinocchio’ (2002)

The Film: Roberto Benigni won two Oscars for “Life Is Beautiful.” Then he nearly torpedoed his career with this live-action adaptation of the children’s story.

The Box Office: Released on Christmas Day and received like a lump of coal in a stocking, the film made a total of $3.6 million.

Sample Review: We’re claiming this one. Elvis Mitchell of The New York Times called it “a chunk of pine, but it’s still awaiting the magic touch to transmute it into a real live movie.” And that was one of the nicer things he said.
