Superman IV: The Quest for Peace :- Watch Superman IV: The Quest for Peace on Youtube on Fire, I like the idea of Superman stopping a nuclear war, however this film wasn’t that great. The problem lies with SUPERMAN tackling a “real life” problem. Why not have Lex Luthor do something to percipitate a nuclear war and have Superman stop it. This film was done by Cannon films, and boy did it show. The villian with the N on his chest wasn’t that great either his only line was “kill SUPERMAN”. After the third film (which killed the francise) alot of interest was lost. I mean who could top SUPERMAN 2? Unless they found a new threat or villian equal to the villians in film number 2, they shouldn’t have done anymore sequels. However, this is Hollywood remember they flogged this francise for every dollar it could grab, and with disasterous results I might add. This movie never should have been released. This movie is at the opposite end of the spectrum as far as favorites go for me. The 1978 original is one of my all time favorite films, while sitting through this one at the movies was like getting a root canal without the novocain. Special effects were horrible as well as character development and plot line. How could any studio head or those involved with the final print of this film feel comfortable with the finished project? Talk about a film that rode on the popularity of its predecessors and failed to live up to any expectations that fans of the earlier films had.
