Of course, Superman saves the world, but the real news is that there's still some life in the series.

Fortunately, the regular Superman performers all do their jobs well.
December 23, 2006
Disappointing to say the least, but at least it doesn't have Richard Pryor this time as its star.

The Superman series gets more and more whimsically outrageous as it goes along.
July 12, 2016
Terrible '80s sequel has violence, nuclear weapons.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
May 5, 2014
The impoverishment here is not merely of means, but of spirit.

May 5, 2014
The overall effect is of a story atomized and dying before our eyes, collapsing into smashed pulp, ground down into big-budget Kryptonite ash.
May 5, 2014
Superman IV is cinematic kryptonite. Not only could it kill the Superman series, it might also leave filmgoers feeling weak.
May 5, 2014
Tthe enthusiastic hamming can't hide the clunking direction by Sidney J Furie and the sub-standard special effects.

It's hard to escape the conclusion that all the originality and excitement have been drained from the series.
May 5, 2014
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.
May 5, 2014
Even at 91 minutes, the film seems truncated.
June 13, 2013
It's a shame that "Superman" had to leave the eighties in such a disgraceful fashion.
June 11, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/10

Predictably awful fourth installment.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 7, 2010
With the passing of the production torch to infamous budget tightwads Golan and Globus, it was clear that the worst was yet to come.

March 26, 2009
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.
April 17, 2007
The special effects are decidedly on the cheap side.

By ordinary movie standards it's awful, but fans of cinematic dementia should have fun for about half an hour.
