How to Ruin a Series in Ten Easy Lessons
19 November 1999 | by (New England) – See all my reviews

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.
