Our review of the fourth theatrical Superman film and the last to star Christopher Reeve. Unfortunately, it’s also the first to give story and producer credit to our main star, and he had no more real understanding of his character than the Salkinds. Or director Sidney J. Furie. Or screenwriters Lawrence Konner and Mark Rosenthal. Basically, this movie was doomed even before half its budget disappeared and Warner Brothers left a third of it’s running time on the cutting room floor. Dr. Lecter was right: half measures are the curse of it. Any sane world would’ve destroyed the film, or thrown enough money at it to finish the job.
