Between Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool 2, and Solo: A Star Wars Story, the last few weeks have been filled with some crazy giant blockbusters. This week, thankfully, we get a bit of time off from big screen sci-fi action. Specifically we have Action Point, Adrift, and Upgrade. It's gonna be a Rotten Week.

Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.

When your theme park has an entire Wikipedia section called "Factors contributing to the park's safety record," you know things went horribly off the rails (pun mostly intended). Such is the true story that has inspired director Tim Kirkby's new comedy Action Point. I've been to the park that this movie is based on (Action Park in Vernon, NJ), and made it out alive. So I guess it wasn't all bad. And the place is still functioning, so they turned things around. But oof, the history on this place isn't awesome.

Johnny Knoxville and company star in a story about an amusement park taking things to extremes so as not to kowtow to the rules. Instead, they make a place where anything and everything goes - and where anything and everything goes wrong. It looks very much like the jokes will wear thin ten minutes into the film. How many times can you see a ride fail, or someone take a hard hit off a broken roller coaster? It's hard to imagine Action Point rates anywhere close to positive with critics. It probably won't matter for their bottom line, but the Tomatometer won't be kind.
