A noticeable drop in quality from the first two, but it's still decent enough that you don't have to be embarrassed for liking it. That comes soon enough...

Pryor is wasted but the image of a bad Superman, and his battle with his good side, is memorable.

When you need someone to reverse-engineer an unknown chemical substance, Richard Pryor is actually a pretty good pick.

Not bad. Fun bizarro scenes and the Clark/Superman fight rules.

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.

Richard Lester's direction injects nothing new into the material, giving the feeling that he views the whole thing as an exercise in comedy set pieces.

Apparently, Richard Lester's intent was to turn Superman into a joke. A really bad joke.

'Superman contra os avanços da tecnologia'. Uma idéia cuja estupidez só é superada por sua péssima execução.

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.
| Original Score: 2/4

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.
