1.0 out of 5 stars A Sad end to an excellant franchise 6 Jan 2007
For all those familliar with the quality of the 3 previous movies then this film will become a bit of a shock.

From the moment the beginning credits start to roll, you sense that there is something badly wrong. The credits try mimic the title sequence of the preceding movies but in a less effective and evidently cheaper fashion, this sadly foreshadows what is to come.

Everything about this film, apart from the performers, reek of bargain basement.

For a movie that is just turning 20 years old, the special effects are awful. Long gone are the cutting edge effects of the previous movies. When Superman is in flight it is either an extremely poorly matted Christopher Reeve nearly static flying through badly shot background footage. Or we have him flying with painfully obvious wire showing. Worst still, an obvious doll is substituted in some scenes.

Although it's meant to be set in America it's obviously been filmed in the UK. Tight close up shots and a scattering of American cars and signs attempt to disguise this without success.

I am a huge fan of Christopher Reeve's performance as Clark Kent and Superman and it is sad to know that this was his swansong in the part. He and the rest of the cast deserved better.

1.0 out of 5 stars Final Nail in Superman's coffin! 25 July 2009
The first 3 Superman movies starring Christopher Reeves are all Good!
Yes, I know, even the third one. The 3rd Superman movie with Richard Pryor had a great story, humour, and special effects way ahead of their time.....It's box office suffered because of peaking VHS copying and piracy at the time....
This film is what happens when you give the actor too much free reign on the direction and script of the movie. The screenplay, acting and special effects are all awful. There is no redeeming factor here.
It will take at least 20 more years before we can recover from the damage done by this movie to the Superman Franchise.........
Perhaps we can pretend that this movie never happened?....and leave the Reeves movies as a trilogy?

2.0 out of 5 stars Truer to the first 2 than its predecessor 5 Mar 2013
By A Customer
Don't laugh - but SUPERMAN IV was actually *better* than SUPERMAN III.

Obviously, that's not saying much... but considering how maligned IV is, there was loads of good stuff in it. It had real promise. Some scenes where actually good - even cinematically good. The main cast did a terrific job. Gene Hackman in particular - ignoring the fact that he was in a poor film - performed every bit as well as always. Every time he appeared on camera the quality sky-rocketed. What a pro. he even seemed to be quite genuinely enjoying himself. you even get more of him in this than you do in Superman I. It's a bad film overall with some terrible, terrible sequences, but admirably truer to the first 2.

It even has energy - unlike its woeful predecessor.

There;s also lots of Superman and Kent in it, and they've wisely put Kent and Lane centre-stage as they should be.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not advising anyone to actually buy this thing but given a choice between it and IV - I'd choose this one.
III is still, to my mind: the worst movie I've ever tortured my brain and senses with.

2.0 out of 5 stars Superman IV: The One Where You Can See the Wires 21 Mar 2010
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Superman IV: The One Where You Can See the Wires - sorry, The Quest For Peace - may have started out with the best of intentions, but new producers Cannon's escalating financial woes and penny-pinching resulted in the budget being literally halved by the time filming started, making a bad idea even worse with shoddy production values. If you think Canada doubling for New York is bad enough these days, that's nothing compared to the Go-Go Boys trying to pass of Milton Keynes, UK as Metropolis, USA. Indeed, Clark Kent's daily commute must be truly epic, since he goes to Metropolis via a clearly signposted Aldwych tube station in London.

The Superman film that's best not spoken about, or not spoken about much, and cut from an original uncompleted 134-minutes to a very scrappy 89 minutes, it's one of those films where every expense has very visibly been spared. Rather than spend the money on a decent flying effect, they go for the old standing very still in front of terrible back projection plate while a wind machine blows your hair technique. These considerably less than special effects wouldn't have looked out of place on the old George Reeves' TV show. Some of the original cast have been tempted back - a worse for wear Margot Kidder, Marc McClure and a very gaunt and unhealthy looking Jackie Cooper - but aside from Gene Hackman none get much to do. Indeed, at times Reeve is unable to hide the look of disgust on his face as he tries to get off the set as quickly as possible (at least he got something out of the whole ghastly fiasco, only agreeing to put on the tights one last time if Cannon would back pet project Street Smart, although that film ended up doing a lot more for Morgan Freeman's career than his own).

By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Superman IV, the last of the Christopher Reeve installments is a large disapointment. The movie lacks the budget of 1 and 2 and the scripts. The story, easy enough to understood, "nuclear weapons are bad" does show the time which it was made, but the action is sluggish rather than creative. It is clear the story lacks villains like General Zod and once again Hackman is left to carry the picture, althoug Reeves does his best always as the definitive Superman in my mind. Although the film does have some good parts like the throwing of nukes into the sun, the super villain of this piece, Nuclear Man, leaves much to be desired, for isntance he's dubbed by Hackman. The main problems arise from poor budgets and a poor script, but the film porbably would still excite anyone under the age of 2 - 21

Superman IV was a disaster from start to finish. Excessive budgetary cuts, very poor quality effects, and being viciously cut and edited add up to a very bad film. Read more
