Superman 4: The Quest for Peace ★★ 1987 (PG)

The third sequel, in which the Man of Steel endeavors to rid the world of nuclear weapons, thereby pitting himself against nuclear-entrepreneur Lex Luthor and his superpowered creation, Nuclear Man. Special effects are dime-store quality and it appears that someone may have walked off with parts of the plot. Reeve deserves credit for remaining true to character through four films. 90m/C VHS, DVD . Christopher Reeve, Gene Hackman, Jon Cryer, Marc McClure, Margot Kidder, Mariel Hemingway, Sam Wanamaker; D: Sidney J. Furie; W: Mark Rosenthal; M: John Williams; V: Susannah York.
