4.0 out of 5 stars Two super dvds got exposed to synpthetic kryptonite and two inferior dvds followed..., 1 Jan. 2008
This review is from: The Complete Superman Collection:[4-Discs] [DVD] (DVD)
Firstly I must say that although I found the Superman films were always great to watch when I was a kid, I have personally gotten a bit bored with the franchise now. However I still cherish the first few films for what they were.

I bought this boxset just over a year ago because I thought that a) it would not only give me the first two films but the third and fourth ones as well and b) I mistook the Christopher Reeve Collection for this one so then I thought it would give me the deleted scenes of Supes 4 that had been locked away in the vaults of Warner Bros for that long time. Sadly I was wrong and ended up with the finished product and theatrical trailer for it only. However I was glad at the time to get Supes 3 for myself where he turns evil and I', sure some other users have read my old review for it. Well although the concept of the third film is good, villains after the worlds oil, Superman turning evil after being exposed to synthetic kryptonite and it was nice to see a lot of the Clark Kent scenes taking place in Smallville with his old flame Lana Lang. However there are a few faults such as Richard Pryor's Gus Gorman, who can be amusing in places but sometimes gets irritating and overacted and actually gets nearly the whole entire film to himself when his character is only co-starring, and Margot Kidder gets about five minutes screentime. Also the opening slapstick sequence is not neccassary except for the Superman rescue. The second film had it's annoying comical moments but they didn't dominate the film like they nearly did in the third and at least the first three were complete (cough, Superman 4, cough, cough).

What is great about this package though is that on the disc for the first film you get an extra 8 mins that had never been seen before in cinemas or on telly or video and on the other side of the disc you get a handful of extras.

Worth checking out.
