When Clark Kent gets in one back door of a police car and exits as Superman on the other, the car doesn't rock or move like a car that has movement inside it. The special rock solid car was necessary for the split screen effect. Still, a minute bit of shifting between right back door and rest of the car (the split screen seam) is barely visible. 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.
