Superman does a lot in his newest adventure. Archvillain Lex Luthor, determined to make the world safe for nuclear arms merchants, creates a new being to challenge the Man of Steel: the radiation-charged Nuclear Man. The two super-powered foes clash in an explosive screen extranvaganza that sees Superman save the Statue of Liberty, repulse a volcanic eruption of Mount Etna, rebuild the demolished Great Wall of China and perform many more spetactular feats.Written by

The Cannon Group, Inc., thinking that they had a potential blockbuster on their hands, cut the two-hour-plus film down to a lean ninety minutes, so that theater owners could have more screenings per day, and potentially make more money that would eventually filter back to the studio. See more »
After Mr Horsnby leaves when he has talked with Clark about the Kent farm, Clark hits a baseball which we then see goes a few thousand miles out into space. To do that, it would have been traveling above Earth's escape velocity of 7.5 miles per second and at that speed it would have burned up whilst going through the atmosphere. See more »
"Superman IV: The Quest For Peace" is a definite improvement over the embarassing "Superman 3".
The cast give sincere performances despite the film's flaws with Christopher Reeve handing in another great performance as Clark Kent/Superman.
"Superman 4" is a flawed film, most notably the special effects and the bad editing, as well as the cut scenes, but I like the film.
Alexander Courage's adaptation of John Williams' music is lovely and is certainly much better than Ken Thorne's version in "Superman 2". It's a shame there's no Superman 4 soundtrack available to purchase.
"Superman 4: The Quest For Peace" is a decent film, and one I certainly don't mind watching.
