**Better than the tedious Superman Returns/Man Of Steel**
Bad effects aside, this one is definitely more fun than the _tedious and dull_ Superman Returns and Man Of Steel stuff – an overload of special effects does not make an engaging film.
The performances here are all top notch as usual and the plot moved swiftly without taking itself too seriously. The franchise has always been silly – stupid even – especially when we remember that _Richard Donner’s Superman had Ned Beatty as the moronic Otis._
The silliness has always been integral to the Superman series.
Filled with cheap gags, really horrible visual effects, a lazy story, a very bad musical score by Alexander Courage, a terrible villain (Nuclear Man), and some tiresome performances by the cast (except for Christopher Reeve), Superman IV: The Quest For Peace is one of the worst films ever made, the one of the worst movie sequels of all time, and the worst Superman film of all time. It is the kryptonite nail in the coffin for the Superman films, and none of the films after this even tried to save the Man Of Steel from his own detriment.
An improvement over Superman 3
“Superman IV: The Quest For Peace” is a definite improvement over the embarassing “Superman 3”.
The cast give sincere performances despite the film’s flaws with Christopher Reeve handing in another great performance as Clark Kent/Superman.
“Superman 4” is a flawed film, most notably the special effects and the bad editing, as well as the cut scenes, but I like the film.
Alexander Courage’s adaptation of John Williams’ music is lovely and is certainly much better than Ken Thorne’s version in “Superman 2”. It’s a shame there’s no Superman 4 soundtrack available to purchase.
“Superman 4: The Quest For Peace” is a decent film, and one I certainly don’t mind watching.
So bad, yet so watchable !
Superman 1 was such a classic movie, and 2 was almost as great – Superman 3 is not a great Superman movie, but as a piece of ’80s American comedy / spoof it succeeds and has some very memorable scenes (notably Chris Reeve as the evil Superman). But Part 4 is just an awful film overall with few redeeming qualities. Reeve’s admirable storyline works well, and the double date scene with Superman & Clark is very entertaining (similar to the style of Superman III). But it’s when Superman IV tries to get serious and exciting in its action sequences that it fails miserably and becomes a cheesey, ridiculous farce that only succeeds in showing how pointless it was to make the film on such a small budget. The story’s not bad and if Donner was directing and you had 100 million dollars you could do it now and create a great adventure movie with some classic comedy scenes and some exciting action sequences. But anyway, it’s too late. For all its failings, every time you see it, it’s still fairly watchable, mainly because you’re always expecting it to magically be better this time around. It’s not as bad as everyone makes out and far more creative and original on a 16 million budget than what Batman and Robin did with 100 million! If Batman and Robin’s a 3 out of 10, then Superman IV’s a 6 out of 10.
