It's a cinematic comic book, shallow, silly, filled with stunts and action, without much human interest.

A wonderful Chaplinesque opening scene followed by two hours of pure dog****.

Superman is thrown in to the mix somewhere. But he's merely an after thought, and a supporting player in his own film.
Putting its emphasis on broad comedy at the expense of ingenious plotting and technical wizardry, it has virtually none of the mythic or cosmic sensibility that marked its predecessors.
...one of history's most infamous cautionary tales about the dangers of computers, and... also one of the silliest.

'Superman contra os avanços da tecnologia'. Uma idéia cuja estupidez só é superada por sua péssima execução.
Now retooling the Superman series into middleweight comedy, the script feels written for no one above the age of twelve. As a production it looks cheaply made and thrown together. Worse, this is a mean-spirited piece of work.
Reeve continues his traditions of graceful flying moves, confident carriage, and twinkly warmth. Sadly, none of it is enough to save Superman III from being at home only in a junkyard.

Among the worst in the series.

Super disappointment w/Pryor comedy emphasis a cosmic mistake
A silly and dull continuation of the series. Lois Lane nowhere to be found. Pryor provides scarce laughs. The externalization of Superman's inner struggle mildly interesting.
