When Gus has skis on the roof, he wears leather shoes. When he smashes through the railing, he wears ski boots. He wears ski boots again on the angled glass ceiling, then regular leather shoes when he lands on the street. See more »
I will admit that when compared to the first two films, this is obviously inferior. But still, it's not all that bad. Christopher Reeves is still the best Superman, and Richard Pryor was okay. I remember seeing this a lot when I was real young, so I have a special place for this film in my heart. I will always remember the scenes when Superman fights the separate superman. The scene where that lady is turned into a robot used to scare me, but I think it's cool now. A good Saturday afternoon film.
