The two super-powered foes clash in an explosive screen extranvaganza that sees Superman save the Statue of Liberty, repulse a volcanic eruption of Mount Etna, rebuild the demolished Great Wall of China and perform many more spetactular feats.

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 »
In several of the shots of Superman and Nuclear Man fighting in space, the silver grommets that hold the wires that Superman is hanging from are clearly visible around his waist. See more »
That's what they SHOULD have called this piece of drek which somehow managed to get produced The first two Superman films were great, especially Superman II. The third one was bad, but in a funny kind of way. Who cannot laugh at Richard Pryor typing "override all security" on the computer monitor and succeeding? But this fourth installment makes Superman 3 look like "The Godfather."
Nuclear Man? Humans flying in outer space without dying?? Superman pushing the moon around to "block the sun"??? John Cryer breakdancing?!?! WHY??????
This movie ruined the credibility of the first two Superman films. It never should have been made. I'd give it a 0 out of 10, but unfortunately IMDB won't let me do that, so I give it a 1 instead.
