A bad movie

Out of the 5 Superman movies they made so far, it is easily the worst one. Yeah, in my opinion, it is even worse than ‘Superman IV’ which is usually even more hated but this 2nd sequel was pure garbage. This time, Richard Lester was back in the director’s chair but even it did a decent job with the 1st sequel, taking over when Richard Donner was fired, he did really mess it up this time.

A bad movie

I liked 'Superman', I loved 'Superman II', but this? This one failed to interest me in any way!

'Superman III' does feature a darker performance from Christopher Reeve, but what a ludicrous script! The film features some nice visual effects, but the effects are used mainly in really boring scenes. The action in this film is just dull and the idea of Superman becoming an alcoholic is... read more

PROS: The cinematography is beautiful, and the special effects are above average. The score is still rousing, and Christopher Reeve is likable enough as Superman. The film is decently paced and there are one or neat touches such as when Superman turns nasty.

CONS: The storytelling is very clunky for me, while the script is awful. Margot Kidder apparently wanted little to do with this ... read more

Tier Ranking: The Worst Films of 1982 - 1983 (44 movies items)

"Critics felt that it just take off the ground, as a movie. When not overusing sight gags, slapstick, and Richard Pryor, Superman III resorts to plot points rehashed from the previous Superman flicks. My thoughts? Superman III feels like a movie, that just doesn’t know it wants to be. Richard Pryor, also feels out of place in this film."

CONS: The storytelling is very clunky for me, while the script is awful. Margot Kidder apparently wanted little to do with this film and if true I'm afraid it does show, while Robert Vaughan is a pretty poor replacement for Gene Hackman and the less said about Pamela Stephenson the better. Also the direction is rather heartless and using Richard Pryor as the source of the laughs just didn't work.

Overall, it is disappointing and lacklustre but it is watchable unlike the fourth. Anyway that is another story. 5/10 Bet” read more
