A scene cut out of the U.S. theatrical version featured Superman saving a group of Soviet generals from a nuclear missile in Moscow. The scene appears on the video release, but not on the DVD. See more »
When Superman is flying with Lois Lane, there is one point where he lets go of her to let her fall so he can catch her. Lois should be falling straight down, but the background indicates that she is still flying. See more »
SUPERMAN IV: THE QUEST FOR PEACE pits the Man of Steel against Nuclear Man, Lex Luther's newest creation while ridding the world of nuclear weapons. This is easily the worst of the SUPERMAN movies, and it was doomed to fail right from the start. Cut from its original 134-minute version, it is full of plot holes resulting in a movie with some scenes that just don't make any sense, but even with the extra 45 minutes intact, the movie still wouldn't work because the special effects are cheap and ridiculous, and it shows. Unless you are a diehard fan of the Superman genre, this movie should be avoided.
