Never underestimate the power of computers.
After being caught for a money making computer scam, Gus Gorman (Richard Pryor – wonderful) is recruited by unscrupulous multimillionaire Ross Webster (Robert Vaughn). With Gorman’s computer expertise, Webster plans to take complete economic control. But first there is the considerable issue of eradicating Superman first…
Richard Lester, as everyone now knows, inherited Superman 2 from the jettisoned Richard Donner. Here we have a complete Richard Lester Superman film, and from the extended slapstick opening we are aware that this is far lighter in tone than the previous two films. Lester’s credits are steeped in comedy traditions, so it’s no real surprise that Superman 3 is more airy comic book than troubled caped crusader. This is something that many franchise fans are completely unforgiving about. Which is a shame, because viewed as a comic book bit of nonsense it’s a rather enjoyable film, certainly it’s the one with the most fun approach.
The action is very well put together, with a franchise highlight as Clark Kent (Christopher Reeve) gets to fight a clearly off kilter Superman (erm, Reeve again), and the comedy, if accepted on its own terms, is very rewarding. Annette O’Toole (adorable) takes the lead love interest role for this one, with Margo Kidder only along for cameo duties. Pamela Stephenson is on hand for some sex bomb side-kick to Vaughn work, and Annie Ross gest the bitch sibling role and gets her teeth and “wires” into it.
All told, it’s not a ground shaking superhero film, but it does work as entertainment if one can cast off the mythology of Superman and his fantastical complexities. To do so is not a crime against ones superhero beliefs, it’s just an acceptance that this is a different approach, and that Superman 3’s only real crime is not being as good as the two film’s that preceded it. Hey, just think, “Quest For Peace” was around the corner… 6/10
A funny, exciting Superman movie that includes the greatest scene in the franchise – the junkyard fight between Evil Supes and his nerdy counterpart, Clark Kent.
Richard Pryor is hilarious as the hapless Gus Gorman – the computer programming genius with a heart. Robert Vaughn makes for a great villain and the special effects are top notch.
So much more entertaining than the tedious bile that would come in later years – Superman Returns and the Henry Cavill rubbish.
I remember sitting in the packed theater in 1983 and the whole audience thoroughly enjoying this – laughing and cheering in all the right places.
And for those who claim the film is too silly – do they not remember Ned Beatty as the cretin Otis in Superman and Superman II – surely the stupidest character to grace the series.

It’s not all that bad folks!
Gus Gorman (Richard Pryor) who is a fun-loving computer genius has been hired by a mad rich computer company tycoon named Ross Webster (Robert Vaughn)to help him with his plans along with Ross’s sister Vera (Annie Ross) and girlfriend Loreli (Pamela Stephenson) but Superman (Christopher Reeve)interferes with their plans as they must plot to stop Superman for good. Clark Kent revisits his old boyhood town called Smallville, where he is reunited with an old flame named Lana Lang (Annette O’Toole) at a high school reunion during his visit. Gus comes up with a scheme to make a special kryptonite with tobacco tar to make Superman evil including splitting up with his personality so that way Gus and Webster can make their supercomputer that can control the world’s energy, can Superman come back to normal or will the computer take over mankind?
Enjoyable sequel but not as awesome as the first two movies, Richard Lester who did his version of “Superman II” just added some unnecessary comedy relief such as the “Three Stooges”-esquire opening sequence that didn’t help or that ludicrous video game footage but there was some good special effects and memorable moments like Clark Kent vs. Superman in the junkyard sequence or the part where Vera becomes a Dot Matrix from Spaceballs-like android, although Ms. Stephenson was pretty cute.
All in all it’s that bad folks, just relax, enjoy and suspend your disbelief.
Superman vs St. Louis Assassin -part 3
this film is not at all as bad as some people would have you to believe it is.
Once again the acting is superb (the acting was great in all 4 of these movies-even when the scripts aren’t) I have a good time with this film every time I see it.
It is the only Superman movie that doesn’t open with John Williams awesome soundtrack. It’s also the only one of the 4 movies where Superman fails to go to the fortress of solitude. It is also the only one without Lex Luther. ……so yes it was a departure from the first 2 films. this movie had far more comic relief in it. Richard Pryor done an outstanding job in this movie.
yes I will admit that parts 1 and 2 are much better films than part 3.
this is a good movie and curses to those who slam it. this is a fun movie.
