2. Winter’s Tale
The following year, in 2014, Will Smith appeared in another movie with a problematic script.

3. Collateral Beauty
Released in 2016, this Will Smith starrer movie has a low rating of 13% and did not receive much love from the viewers though some fans thought the movie was worth a watch. This well-intended but fundamentally flawed movie is packed with lots of emotions had an incredibly strong cast, with Will Smith as the lead actor.
4. Wild Wild West
This multi-million-dollar debacle of Will Smith left the audiences shell-shocked and joined the list of big bloated blockbusters. The movie has one or two clever moments and subtle sense of humor. Viewers suggested to watch it as fun and entertaining movie although the Rotten Tomatoes rating for this movie is merely 16%. When you go to watch a Will Smith movie, entertainment is your prime expectation.
A blend of fantasy, hard-hitting cop drama and social commentary, the movie falls short on all three fronts. Will Smith as Daryl Ward, a human LAPD officer is partnered with Joel Edgerton as Nick Jakoby in the movie where fantasy creatures do exist and the humans live with the Orcs and Elves. An action film with a plot of a TV series, the movie has a rating of 26% but the film seemed attractive to quite a many viewers who also thought that there is a great potential for sequel.

6. Suicide Squad
Unrealistic story line and lousy interactions in this Will Smith starrer movie did not go well at all with the viewers. Though there were some dumb and ridiculous parts in the film, it was the lame story that brought the director, David Ayer lots of backlash. With too many characters but no plot and no substance, it was seen more as a wasted opportunity. This 2016 movie too has just a rating of 26% as per Rotten Tomatoes.
7. Seven Pounds
Will Smith, a man who sets out to change the lives of seven strangers. Directed by Gabriele Muccino and released in the year 2008, Will Smith gives a captivating performance and demonstrates the scope of his acting abilities in this film.

Despite the mix of hit and flop films, Will Smith is undoubtedly a gem of an actor and has secured a reputation for himself in the Hollywood industry with his hard work and dedication.
