The series seems to have dwindled short on ideas in this fourth installment. The plot isn't creative, the special effects are sorely dated, and the entire cast seems uninterested. It's safe to say that enough is enough.

As a kid this was my favourite Superman film, but in retrospect it is a giant mess of a movie. I am surprised that it was released in theatres as its low budget and cheap effects were clearly made for straight to video.

Probably one of the worst movies ever made. Seriously. The effects are terrible(they make the first two films look like Avatar), most of the characters are stupid, and it's insanely predictable.

Stunning. I've never seen anything like this. This is better than all of the other movies coming out these days. Probably my favoritest movie ever in the entire universe.

The story dragged from start to finish it. It wasn't fair after Superman: The Movie the character got dragged through three director's and it went into a downward spiral. As a fan of the character you let certain thing's slip in the movie. The flying sequences were poor, the villain was poor and it wasn't a very good movie. Expand

Unwatchable! Boring plot, boring action, cheap effects (even compared to the previous installments whos effects are out of time now), even the actors did their worst, compared to the other movies. I don't think anyone wants to watch it ever again.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Unlike Superman III I've got no credits with this film, in fact this is more like the two first films but the actions are so predictable, it's nice that Lex Luthor has returned and he created a nuclear weapon named Nuclear Man, man that guy is a ridiculous villain and what's more ridiculous is that both he and Superman battled each other at the moon with slow motion in which Superman attempts to retrieve the American flag. This is the worst Superman movie and it ruined the franchise, and it's sad that Christopher Reeve died 17 years later and he will always be Superman. Expand

Why just why, you now when you have a successful run but the studio thinks that you should make more then make a other successful movie but give you little time to do the other one, or a lot of time but keep interfering and in which case youWhy just why, you now when you have a successful run but the studio thinks that you should make more then make a other successful movie but give you little time to do the other one, or a lot of time but keep interfering and in which case you should tell them to make it and just leave, well that's what the director should have done with this. I mean good grief this is bad. How can you go to awesome to awesome and to disappointing to franchise killing. Where do I start yes, the plot is bull crap and I'm wish to spoil it but don't because it will dump your IQ to 0.1. I never use that much math in a review. So the major plot hole in this movie is that the logic is bad and the effects are bad and the ways that happens are bad. So don't watch it. Expand

This isn't a superhero movie. It's a 500-foot commercial/trailer for itself and the cancelled Superman V, filled with the dullest special effects I've ever seen.

If you want a inspiring super hero to have a movie full of terrible special effects, a terrible story, and some of the dumbest things superman has ever done, then we have the movie for you.

Stirred by a schoolboy's letter, ReeveAppearing in 1987, when most assumed that the series had been put to rest, Superman IV: The Quest For Peace, with a story dreamed up in part by Reeve, plays like the unholy union of a PSA and the WWF. Stirred by a schoolboy's letter, Reeve decides to rid the world of nuclear weapons by tossing them in a giant net and throwing them at the sun. Meanwhile, Hackman's Luthor, aided by slang-talking surfer nephew Jon Cryer, creates a new super-rival: Nuclear Man, who locks horns with Reeve against a variety of rear-projection backdrops. By this point, the production values had dipped so low that director Sidney J. Furie might as well have imported footage from the old George Reeves series. Unsurprisingly, the series ended there, its first two entries illustrating what grand-scale entertainment could do, the remainder illustrating the perils of doing it to death. Expand

Superman IV: The Quest For Peace is for sure the worst Superman movie to date. There's so much that's wrong about this movie to the point of absurdity.

First off, the filmmakers clearly didn't have enough money to make even a fine CGI/special effect look in this movie. Early on we see a car crash directly down into a pit, but there's no explosion that happens or even a sound.

The film is also complete with super random Superman powers, including him staring super hard at a spaceship, and it just vanishes. There's also a scene where he uses his eyes to rebuild a wall of bricks.

The film is also very famous for having some of the worst green screen effects ever made. There's multiple shots of Superman flying around, and it just appears as if the filmmakers aren't even trying at all to make a convincing Superman!

Superman IV: The Quest For Peace isn't only the worst Superman movie ever made, it's for sure one of the worst superhero movies ever!

Terrible in every way imaginable. The story was blah, the characters were boring, the person who portrayed superman is an idiot. 0/10. I have never seen anything so bad in my life.
