Superman (Christopher Reeve) tries to save the world from nuclear destruction at the hands of Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman) in this action film featuring the man of steel. In a speech to the United Nations, Superman declares he will rid the world of all nuclear weapons. Arch-villain Luthor emerges from prison obsessed with killing Superman and creates an adversary known as Nuclear Man (Mark Pillow). The two engage in a fight to the finish in various landmarks on Earth before taking their battle into outer space. When Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) invites both Superman and Clark Kent to a double-date dinner, Superman's powers are tested so that both men can be present. Jackie Cooper plays the gruff veteran newspaper editor Perry White, with Marc McClure as Jimmy Olsen. Sam Wanamaker plays tabloid tycoon David Warfield, the millionaire who buys the Daily Planet. Mariel Hemmingway is Warfield's daughter Lacy, Clark Kent's date at Lois' luxury apartment. This is the least interesting of the four Superman movies starring Christopher Reeve.

I think the majority agrees that Superman IV marked the end of the series because of its horrible reception. Gene Hackman seemed reluctant to even try to be believable here there is more than one scene where it looks like he is just reciting lines. This one, like the last, dates itself a bit due to its focus on nuclear disarmament due to the Cold War. The look and effects of the Nuclear Man villain is pretty good, yet I hated the fact that he was just lip-syncing a more sinister voice. He comes off as very corny because of this, unlike the villains in Superman 2. The battle on the moon was rather weak as well. At least the series never got any worse.

After watching Superman 3, I thought that this movie was going to suck. I heard a lot of bad reviews of this movie. When I watched it this movie was more interesting than the last one. I really liked the first half of the movie. Then the movie takes a different turn when Nuclear Man is introduced. There are a lot of plot holes in this movie. The special effects are not as great as the last three because the budget got slashed in half. One thing I found disturbing was Nuclear Man taking Mariel Hemingway to space. That scene was pure dumb. This movie is not as bad compared to "Batman and Robin". Wait for the 2 disc special editon, it has the full uncut version (134 min).
