IV: The Quest for Peace (1987): The critics give
this movie so much crap, and I can't believe it! I think it's
probably the best of the Superman movies. It's definitely the
shortest at about an hour and a half. The others were over 2
hours, almost 3 hours, long. This film moves quickly and has an
action-filled plot. Lex Luthor returns, this time with hip nephew
Lenny Luthor. We finally see a romance budding between Superman
and Lois Lane. Lois has a rival for Clark's affections. The
Daily Planet is being taken out of editor Perry White's control, which
provides an interesting subplot. Lex Luthor clones Superman to
make a solar-powered villain called Nuclear Man. Nuclear Man
nearly kills Superman, making him sick. Superman regains his
strength through a magic crystal given to him by his long-dead
biological parents. This movie is more than just a street brawl
between Superman and a powerful villain. He does all sorts of
amazing feats of strength. Plus, it's a statement against the use
of nuclear arms. This movie was made in the final throes of the
Cold War, so it was a lot more relevant then. Plus, I've read in
various interviews that this was Christopher (Superman) Reeve's
favorite Superman film. If you haven't yet seen this film, give
it a chance. I'm sure you'll like it!
