While Christopher Reeve continues to soar as Superman here, the rest of the movie is nothing but a failed, crash landing.

Awful plot, laughable characters and villains, a ridiculous sense of humor, a plot free from logic, and lackluster action make Superman III an awful sequel, especially after the acclaimed Superman II.

While I'm not a fan of Superman 1 and 2, at least they tried to be entertaining, this a lame sequel that has ever made. Is not the worst, is just lame.

Replacing its light comical material for slapstick, digressing in exciting action, and having a plot that's dry on and feasible ideas, Superman III is an unfortunate downfall for the series.

Umm how about no? I'm getting so sick and tired of these pointless remakes and sequels to great movies. Superman was a good movie but this sequel just threw away my appetite to ever watch another superhero movie again.

For a movie that relies on dull slapstick and rehashed points from previous Superman movies, the third installment knows how to provoke a complete boredom and scenes who are supposed to be funny, but they are not. Not as bad as Superman IV (or Abomination) but it's still pretty bad.

One or two good scenes... the rest.. unwatchable.. Nothing interesting going on in the plot, stupid jokes and humor, mostly bad acting. No i don't want to watch it again.. not even to laugh at its stupidity.

Christopher Reeves continues to be the definitive Superman, but even he can't help save Superman III from its unfunny attempts at humor, unlikable, underdeveloped villains, terrible plot, and the awful casting of Richard Pryor. Don't get meChristopher Reeves continues to be the definitive Superman, but even he can't help save Superman III from its unfunny attempts at humor, unlikable, underdeveloped villains, terrible plot, and the awful casting of Richard Pryor. Don't get me wrong, he's an amazing comedian, but he should have never been considered for a role this toned down and tame. Expand

Everything you knew and loved about the character gets misused so much, it's a wonder why the studio was even making these movies anymore. Christopher Reeve is back as the title character, and he must confront his inner demons, which leads to a rather ridiculous fight that, while somewhat technically impressive for 1983, its overall execution is rather clunky and misguided. Richard Pryor is the latest comic relief here, and he does what he can in a premise that should not require any comedic effect, but for some reason, the filmmakers behind this movie felt that comedy was needed for a story like this. I could go on about why this movie was a colossal disappointment, but I think just a simple "Don't watch it!" should be more than enough to give you an idea as to why this movie should never be seen.

This is one superman movie not made of steel. It has laughable characters, dumb humor, and a stupid plot. This movie was supposed to be the conclusion to a trilogy that should have been remembered.
