The Worst of the Five Superman MoviesThis movie didn't suck but it was the worst of the five Superman films. Sometimes you could see cables connected to both Superman and Nuclearman. Also, sometimes when it showed them flying, you could plainly tell that dolls were being used. This movie had worse special effects than the 1st Superman film which was made nine years earlier. If you watch the movie in slow motion at the volcano scene, you can see that Nuclearman had no head. Pathetic. Tanks, bombs and guns can't hurt Superman but a couple of scratches on the back of his neck almost killed him. Scratches can't hurt Superman. That was stupid. Another stupid thing was when those scratches turned Superman into an old man.
Warner Bros. gave Golan-Globus $40,000,000 to make Superman IV but they only used $17,000,000. They used the remaining $23,000,000 on other films they were making. After this movie failed a screen test, Golan-Globus freaked and cut 45 minutes out of it. Making it a pathetic 90 minutes. That wasn't a smart decision. Cutting that 45 minutes made it confusing and worse. This film only made $23,000,000 at the box office. If Reeve hadn't starred in Superman IV like he originally planned, this would've been the worst movie ever made. I didn't hate this film but the other five Superman movies were better.
