The Story Behind Superman III
4 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Making of 'Superman III' is a documentary that discusses the story behind the production of Superman:The Movie.It was hosted by Al Matthews.

It presents interviews from its cast led by Christopher Reeve,who portrayed Superman and Clark Kent and Annette O' Toole,who played Lana Lang.It also has interviews with the crew involve behind the special effects. Aside from that,the viewers are treated to behind- the- scenes footage of memorable scenes from the movie such as when Superman put a stop into fire in the building which was put into stop with a frozen lake and many others.Aside from that,we also are treated to location shootings such as New York City where important scenes with Clark Kent,Superman and Lana Lang are taking place.And definitely,fans are seeing how the special effects are being made manually as computers aren't modern during the time it was produced. Despite of how good the documentary is,too bad that one could probably not really appreciate it as the movie came out to be mediocre and forgettable.
