If you approach it as a bad comedy, it's not as bad as some make it out to be. It does have its fair share of good moments, but it's not great.
2.5 stars out of 5
Illogical nonsense and just as entertaining as the previous two. There are some truly great scenes mixed in with some truly bad ones. The bad ones are actually so bad that they are entertaining in themselves (basically everything that has to do with computers and some cringe-worthy attempts at slapstick comedy), but the good stuff is really good too. The fight between good and bad superman is a highlight of the series and the ending with the supercomputer vs. superman is another memorable special effects bonanza (evil sister android, strangled by electrical snares, strangled by giant bubbles, kryptonite beams). Richard Pryor is if anything energetic and watchable, though he seems out of place in a Superman-movie. Christopher Reeve on the other hand is absolutely super as the man of steel, especially when he plays the evil version of himsef. If you like your 80s cinema with large chunks of cheese, lots of old school special effects, fast pacing and don't mind the occasional cringe-worthy moment, then this movie is for you!
Not as good as the other Superman movies but the fact that Lana Lang in SIII is Momma Kent in Smallville is simply amazing.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
