It's hard to escape the conclusion that all the originality and excitement have been drained from the series.

It`s hard to summon much wonder when Superman goes mano-a-mano with Nuclear Man, a Lex Luthor creation with a static electricity problem.

Tthe enthusiastic hamming can't hide the clunking direction by Sidney J Furie and the sub-standard special effects.

For sentimentality's sake, it's great watching Reeve and company reprise their roles even if it's in the bastard child edition of the series, but this isn't just one of the worst comic book films, it's one of the worst films ever made.

Godawful, pointless, preachy sequel.

That this movie is how the Superman movie legacy ended would be a depressing thought if the movie weren't so endlessly hilarious.

It's a shame that "Superman" had to leave the eighties in such a disgraceful fashion.

The earlier films in the series were far from perfect, but at their best they had some flair and agreeable humor, qualities this one sorely lacks.

More sluggish than a funeral barge, cheaper than a sale at K mart, it's a nerd, it's a shame, it's Superman IV.

The overall effect is of a story atomized and dying before our eyes, collapsing into smashed pulp, ground down into big-budget Kryptonite ash.

...this final sigh of a movie manages to send the series out with a feeble yet breathing dignity. It's bad, but it's better than III in that it does try to rise above itself.

The cut-rate production resulted in what Reeve termed "catastrophe" for a film intended to marry a serious message to the series' signature action, humor, and romance.

Somewhere between the cheesy special effects and lame story the whole movie falls flat.
