2. Transformers: The Last Knight (2017)

PG-13 | 154 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

27 Metascore

A deadly threat from Earth's history reappears and a hunt for a lost artifact takes place between Autobots and Decepticons, while Optimus Prime encounters his creator in space.

eCartelera rank: #2 "What 'Transformers: The Last Knight' offered from the beginning was an ambitious, indigestible menu, that we all knew would go horribly wrong."

3. The Emoji Movie (2017)

PG | 86 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy

12 Metascore

Gene, a multi-expressional emoji, sets out on a journey to become a normal emoji.

Director: Tony Leondis | Stars: T.J. Miller, James Corden, Anna Faris, Maya Rudolph

Votes: 60,358 | Gross: $86.09M

eCartelera rank: #3 "One hour and twenty minutes of not knowing what to do, repeating the same tiresome point and emphasizing an equally tiring sense of humor."

4. The Dark Tower (2017)

PG-13 | 95 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy

34 Metascore

A boy haunted by visions of a dark tower from a parallel reality teams up with the tower's disillusioned guardian to stop an evil warlock known as the Man in Black who plans to use the boy to destroy the tower and open the gates of Hell.

Votes: 133,680 | Gross: $50.70M

eCartelera rank: #4 "They have wildly eviscerated an eight-book saga that, thanks to Stephen King's daily constancy in writing, has become one of his greatest works. In the end, [the film] is a jumble that kills this universe's complexity."

5. The Mummy (2017)

PG-13 | 110 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy

34 Metascore

An ancient Egyptian princess is awakened from her crypt beneath the desert, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia, and terrors that defy human comprehension.

Votes: 179,743 | Gross: $80.10M

eCartelera rank: #5 "If the film that introduced the first female horror creature of this kind was meant to be the Dark Universe's presentation card, it has failed spectacularly. It doesn't offer anything that makes us want to stay in a world populated by monsters."

6. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)

PG-13 | 126 min | Action, Adventure, Drama

41 Metascore

Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not.

Votes: 203,430 | Gross: $39.18M

eCartelera rank: #6 "Yes, all of [Guy Ritchie's] crazy effervescence is there, but it also ends up depicting elements that do nothing but hinder the pace and end up weighing down the movie."

7. Fifty Shades Darker (2017)

R | 118 min | Drama, Romance

33 Metascore

While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her.

Votes: 96,768 | Gross: $114.38M

eCartelera rank: #7 "Can you tell less in a plot than 'Fifty Shades Darker'? Difficult, but the worst of the second installment of the saga isn't that, but the fact that it doesn't give you any incentive to stay awake through its entire runtime."

8. Death Note (I) (2017)

TV-MA | 101 min | Action, Crime, Drama

Director: Adam Wingard | Stars: Nat Wolff, LaKeith Stanfield, Margaret Qualley, Shea Whigham

Votes: 80,937

eCartelera rank: #8 "It completely erases any hint of complexity to, just like the main character, focus on a rather stupid and schematic plot."

9. Bright (I) (2017)

TV-MA | 117 min | Action, Fantasy, Thriller

29 Metascore

A detective must work with an Orc to find a powerful wand before evil creatures do.

Director: David Ayer | Stars: Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Edgar Ramírez

Votes: 178,345

10. The Circle (I) (2017)

PG-13 | 110 min | Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller

43 Metascore

A woman lands a dream job at a powerful tech company called the Circle, only to uncover an agenda that will affect the lives of all of humanity.

Director: James Ponsoldt | Stars: Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, John Boyega, Ellar Coltrane
