"I hope you don't expect me to save you..." (by burbs82)
Despite the overwhelming hatred for Superman III, I gotta say that I think it's an excellent film. One of the two best of the whole Superman saga, actually. The other, of course, is the original film. But Superman III is so much fun, and a great example of how it's possible for Superman to have enemies OTHER than Lex Luthor. The guy's been the main villain in, how many is it, FOUR of the now FIVE Superman films? I liked Gene Hackman's Luthor far superior to Kevin Spacey's , but you gotta take a break at some point. No, Superman III is a refreshing change of pace, not only <more>
in that respect, but in several ways.Most noticeable, and much to the chagrin of many people, is the slightly more comedic tone of the film, centered mainly around Richard Pryor's character, August 'Gus' Gorman. I thought Prior was great. He plays an over-the-top character in a movie series about an over-the-top character. I hear people complain all the time that they hate the comedy that Prior brought to the film because Superman is supposed to be, and these are actual quotes, "gritty" and "realistic". NO, he's not. Superman is not gritty, and he's not realistic. Never was, never will be. Richard Donner's original doesn't even come CLOSE to playing it straight. Just look at how he portrays Clark Kent. In the comic books and 1950's television series, the "mild-mannered" Clark Kent is treated with respect and professionalism. He basically co-exists amongst his peers at the Daily Planet. In "Superman: The Movie", Richard Donner has taken the character straight out of the old comics and TV series, with all the same mannerisms and morals, and placed him in a very modern 1978. This is a set-up for much of the films adequate amount of comedy relief. "Superman: The Movie" is not a comedy. Neither is "Superman III", but they both have comic relief. The Clark Kent character is slightly more serious in this one, thus, you have Gus. A funny little man, with an interesting power. A savant-like intellect that gives him complete control over any computer system.I especially like how Clark Kent, Superman's alterego, is fleshed out more as he returns home to Smallville. This is a great follow-up to Richard Donner's brief exploration to Superman's early years in Smallville. The inclusion of Lana Lang as Clark's high school crush was great, even better in that they chose the lovely Annette O'Toole to portray the character. I LOVE Margot Kidder, but I think Lana is a very important character in Superman's backstory.All the delving into Clark Kent's character and background leads us to one of the greatest scenes in motion picture history... Clark Kent vs. Evil Superman. I could sit here and expound on the scene's metaphoric implications all day long, but simply put, I found it jaw-dropping. Christopher Reeve was always perfect as Superman, but his best work is here in this scene. Evil Superman is a very physical representation of everything Clark/Superman has ever repressed, and obviously we're talking about a lot of repression here. It's great stuff. I still wanna cheer every time the victorious Clark Kent opens his shirt to reveal his famous insignia, which, by the way, is differentiated by Evil Superman's in that it's excessively bright, where as his was really dark and dingy looking. Having been a Superman fan since I was a kid way back in the day, that's one of those scenes I'll remember 'till the day I die. I remember it from my childhood, but it's actually more relateable for me now as an adult.Superman III is one of the greats. If you haven't seen it yet, I only ask that you watch it with an open mind and not look for grit or realism where it has no place being. Instead, just believe a man can fly... again.
One of the better comicbook movies around (by The Spectacular Spider-Man)
Cool things about Superman III: 1. Reeve gives his best Superman performance; no messing about, kick ass and take names heroics. I love it. 2. The junkyard fight scene, the best superhero movie fight sequence ever, outside the Matrix trilogy. 3. When Clark becomes Superman again after that fight scene; the way he stands up, realises who he is and then rips his shirt open to reveal the clean, fresh, heroic S symbol is awesome, and is one of the most stirring and effective Superman moments ever. 4. Best special effects of the series. 5. Richard Pryor IS funny, even though he is clearly in the <more>
wrong flick. 6. That nasty Zelda-from-Terrahawks cyborg monster that woman gets turned into at the end - SCARY! 7. Lana Lang is so much better than Lois Lane, you can actually see why Clark would go for her. 8. The way Superman outwits the computer at the climax rather than just using his power to defeat it. Here's the ultimate cool thing: when most actors play evil versions of their characters, they just play them as 2D bad guys. But Reeve makes the evil Superman a convincingly bitter, currupted version of the Man of Steel, who realises how great he used to be and hates himself and everybody else for his fall from grace. He's a disgraced hero, a fallen angel. Ironically, he's the best villain of teh Superman series. The whole good/evil Superman thing is awesome and for me makes Superman III a very good film. I'll take Superman III over Spider-Man, Daredevil and Batman Forever.
This is my favorite Superman movie right here. I love this one a whole lot. I love Richard Pryor a whole lot. He was very funny in that one. I love the scene when Superman split in to two. Like good Clark Kent and bad Superman. Then, they end up fighting. And, good Clark Kent wins against bad Superman. The best part with Richard Pryor, was when he flew with Superman at the near end of the movie. That was my favorite rated PG movie of all rated PG movies, my favorite Warner Bros movie of all Warner Bros movies, and my best picture of 1983 .
Great Superman sequel - underrated by traditionalists (by mattrochman)
This film is not worthy of the 9/10 I gave it. But I saw that the average was below 5 and I feel the need to "corrupt" the statistics. I want to increase this average so that score is a truer reflection of the quality and public's perception of this film.Many may think that this is unfair or unreasonable. But I regard it as a reflex reaction to traditionalists who gave it '1' because it strayed from the typical superman formula, irrespective of whether it was a good film in its own right... and it was! Since they are unfairly under-rating the film, I feel justified in <more>
over-rating the film..... DEAL WITH IT! The traditionalists want the love interest Lois Lane to feature prominently, along with the naive Jimmy Olsen, the ranting Perry White and the conniving and ruthless Lex Luthor.Well, Jimmy breaks his leg in the first 15 minutes and is presumably hospitalised for the rest of the film, Lois kidder makes a cameo appearance at the start of the film to let us know that she's going on holiday, Lex & his numb-skull sidekick Otis isn't even mentioned and it seems as if the Daily Planet doesn't mind if Clark Kent goes to his high school reunion and then takes the next few weeks off work. With all the plot devices removed, I was actually interested in where this movie would take me, rather than rolling my eyes before the film has even begun.First and foremost, the film opens better than any other of th0e Reeve Supermans. First, Superman saves a man from drowning in his car wait till you see it! and shortly after, there is a fire at a chemical factory and superman arrives again to save the day . I felt that this opening was rather thrilling and the film makers stuck to the traditions of classic Superman.Then we move onto the story of Clark Kent rekindling a romance with a high school sweetheart, who is, at the same time, fending off an old alcoholic ex-boyfriend. This scenario gives rise to a number of funny scenes the one at the bowling alley was side splitting . As per usual, Reeves played the part of the bumbling, geeky Clark Kent to perfection.Running along side is the story of Richard Prior. He's an unemployed bum scenes in the welfare office are hysterical who suddenly finds that he has a knack for computers. He commits a fraud using his extensive knowledge of computers the fraud is later repeated - with acknowledgment - in the brilliant film "Office Space" and when he is caught, he assumes that he will be fired and arrested. However, his sinister boss has something else in mind for our comic computer whiz.However, their plans are thwarted by Superman and in response, Prior and his boss obtain kryptonite. However, the kryptonite is 'not quite right' and causes superman to become evil rather than weaken him . In any case, superman is out of the way, which allows Prior and his boss go to work on a "super computer" that can control the world. Will Superman become good again and save the day in time? All in all, a very enjoyable film, even though there are short comings. The performances are very good and I couldn't imagine the computer whiz's part being played by anyone other than Prior. The villain was also terrific, as was his sister and co-conspirator.Yes - this does stray from the traditional Superman plot formulars. But it did so without dishonouring the Superman tradition if that makes sense. And besides, it's good to have a different villain than Lex Luthor and a break from the irritatingly unresolvable romance between Kent/Superman and Lois Lane.In closing, I found it rather amusing that the traditionalists put this effort down, but when the Reeve's series returned to it's old plot formulars Luthor, Daily Planet, Lane... in the woeful Superman IV - The Quest For Peace, the critics, traditionalists and general audiences all gave it a giant thumbs down!However, the film did lose a star for having this bizarre left-wing after-taste. Instead of a crazed criminal seeking world domination, the villain is a corporate boss who wants control of the coffee market and quotes Atilla the Hun. He is enraged by and destroys a small South American country that thinks it can dictate terms to the "free market." Clark Kent's high school crush is now a "perfect single mother" - see it's perfectly OK if Hollywood says so; and the film opens with poor old lovable Richard Pryor getting booted off welfare. Ironically, the villain goes for the oil towards the end of the film. But alas, Superman saved the day by ridding the world of this capitalist threat. Almost as laughable as the politically neutral "truth, justice, and .... all that stuff" in the recent Superman Returns. Get over it.
Not a bad follow-up to the first two. (by stevesadlerjr)
I bought the special edition DVD not too recently and the extras were very intriguing. Also I'm a big fan of Richard Pryor, so I know that this one stands out from the first two.The film overall is pretty impressive, although critics at the time the film was released thought it was awful. The films new villains are not that bad, considering the lack the charisma of Lex Luthor and Co.One important subplot: a man-made form of Kryptonite; instead of killing him, the Man of Steel was turned evil. The sudden change also has has a fling with one of the villains. The movie's climax was very <more>
awe-inspiring and pretty technical with a huge payoff.Overall this film has a real feel-good quality to it. It is highly recommended.
The Salkind's Have Done it Again! (by superboy478)
***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** Superman III is not an epic, but an awsome sci-fi thriller. What made it so great is that there are new characters, new story, new villians, new style. We'd seen the first two Superman movies and noticed that they were both epics. Well, be ready for something new.Gus Gorman Richard Pryor has been unemployed for 36 weeks and is looking for a job. Its discovered by a computer teacher, that Gorman is the best computer hacker on the face of the earth. So, Gorman is hired to work at a computer industry known as Webscoe Industries. After embezling money from the <more>
pay roll department, Ross Webster Robert Vaughn begins to notice what a genius Gorman is. So he and Gorman try and pull off a scam by destroying Colombia, South America with the weather. But, it's discovered on the news that Superman Christopher Reeve has saved Colombia from the scam. So, Gorman finds out that Superman's weakness is Kryptonite. That ends up giving Gorman the idea that he could splice tobacco tar with Kryptonite and it could turn Superman into a dangerous predator towards the earth. When Superman recieves the Kryptonite not knowing what it is, he does turn into an evil one. Gorman and Webster then talk about taking all the oil in the world so that nothing can run like ships and such.Later on, Superman the evil version finally cracks and has a battle with Clark Kent in a junkyard. It becomes a fight to the death when Clark Kent wins and finally turns good again. Now its a battle with Gus Gorman, which will be hard to win since Gorman personally had a special computer built in Alberta, Canada. This computer can destroy anything that trys to attack it. So the end is a battle between Superman and Gorman.I should also mention that Lois Lane Margot Kidder is in the movie, but only in two scenes. This time, Clark Kent goes to his high school reunion in Smallville and sees his high school crush, Lana Lang Annette O' Toole and immediatley falls in love with her all over again. He also develops a friendship with her son Ricky.Other stars in the movie are: Pamela Stephenson as the menacing Lorelie Ambrosia, Annie Ross as Vera Webster Ross's Sister , and Gavin O' Herlihy as Lana Lang's ex-boyfriend Brad Wilson.Produced by Alexander & Ilya Salkind, Superman III is an awsome sequel with great special effects, great acting, great screen writing from David and Leslie Newman Superman I & II . See it!
A very underreted solid decent third Superman sequel and that not a bad one (by ivo-cobra8)
Superman III 1983 is very extremely underrated bashed hated film and I am going to defend this film today! It is one of my personal favorite Superman movies of all time. Yes you read the title I love Superman III it is my childhood movie, I grew up watching this film and it was the first film I saw as a kid. Since I saw half of the second film Richard Lester version. Christopher Reeve will always be Clark Kent Superman for me no one else can replace him I don't care what anyone says. I kept wining to my parents that I want to see Superman movie and in the video store a lady video store <more>
owner gave me Superman III on VHS when I was a kid and it was the only movie she had. Superman III is MILES way better than crappy lame Zack Snyder's Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice I hate those movies. I find this film enjoyable, well-done, and extremely underrated. The effects & technology are extremely dated especially the computers , but this is still a decent, well-done film. Plot: Synthetic kryptonite laced with tobacco tar splits Superman in two: good Clark Kent and bad Man of Steel. Thing's I love in this movie, why I gave the most highest rating in this film and why I am defending it:Christopher Reeve is and always will be the only SUPERMAN! No one could play Clark Kent/Superman like Christopher Reeve, If anyone could be Superman, It is Christopher Reeve! The opening sequence with the "fools of Metropolis" was amusing, in a slap-stick way; this intentionally reminded me of some of the old slap-stick routines from years before Laurel & Hardy; Three Stooges; etc. . And, sure, a lot of Superman III was comedic, but a lot of this was just in line with the Gus Gorman Richard Pryor character. Superman/Clark going back to Smallville for his high school reunion & running into Lana Lang Annette O'Toole , etc. Very cool sequence, and I liked seeing Superman return to his "roots". Also, based on the reunion you get an idea of the character's ages - i.e., the reunion said "Class of 1965" & since the film came out in 1983 and supposedly was set in "real time , then Clark & his class-mates were all around 36 years old at that point.This film focus more on Lana Lang, Clark's first love, Lois was Clark's eternal Love but Lana was his first love. Annette O'Toole was perfectly as Lana Lang after long 18 years Annette was cast as Martha Kent in Smallville. In Superman: The Movie Lana Lang was played by actress Diane Sherry and she only had a cameo scene and than she disappeared from the rest of the film. Here we find out more about Clark and Lana's love! I saw Clark and Lois in the first two films but now we see more Clark and Lana's love story. Superman save's Ricky Paul Kaethler Lana's son in the corn filed from the tractor that scene was really serious, the kid could have been seriously crushed, it that could have happened in real life. This film was filmed and released in year of 1983 the year that I was born. This was my first Superman movie and it is my childhood film, I love it to death and I will always cherished. The whole sequence where Superman was exposed to the "Red Kryptonite" though they didn't call it that in the episode and became dark/somewhat evil. They did a great job of transforming Superman/Clark to look dirty/unshaven/burned out even his costume was darker! , and not only disinterested in helping others - but also being somewhat malicious as well. I especially liked the battle that Superman had with his good & bad selves in the junkyard; I'm guessing this battle may have been metaphorical. It was also interesting on another level, because we saw what would happen if Superman had been evil instead of good. That scene was also used in Smallville Season 2 Episode 4: Red Clark was exposed to Red kryptonite and he evil. Richard Pryor as the scam artist Gus Gorman was good and hilarious the same time - obviously, because of his inclusion many fans probably dismissed the film as a comedy; however, his presence brought a light-heartiness to the film that was reminiscent of the comedic Ned Beatty character from Superman I & II. Christopher Reeve was perfect as Clark Kent/Superman he acted brilliant his character, he is the only Superman and superhero for me.This is Richard Lester original version film and he didn't had to re shot scenes from Richard Donner. The rest of the actors did a solid job and I really didn't had any problems with them. Robert Vaughn was a great villain I am glad the franchise had a new villain in all films Lex Luthor was five time the villain in all Superman franchise movies.Ross Webster was a great villain and the scene where Vera Annie Ross becomes a robot and she becomes evil really scares me. Brad Wilson played by Gavan O'Herlihy: Lana's former boyfriend, the character from the first film also returns in the first film he was played by Brad Flock.Superman III is a 1983 British superhero film directed by Richard Lester, based on the DC Comics character Superman. It is the third film in the Superman film series and the last Superman film to be produced by Alexander Salkind and Ilya Salkind. I love this film to death and it is my second favorite and the last good Superman film.
This is, by far, my favorite feature film with Superman to this day. It gets better every time I watch it. Unfortunately, its qualities not always are recognized.It's a great comedy, an action film, a science fiction and a very bright observation of the changes that the popularization of computers brought in the early 80s.Also, brings the best performance of Christopher Reeve in the series and, possibly, in all his career. Margot Kidder, although doesn't appear much, is always OK, but the greatest surprise is Pamela Stephenson, fantastic as the false dumb blonde, questioning Kant when <more>
nobody is looking.There are a lot of unforgettable scenes, but the movie becomes really great after Superman is exposed to a fake piece of kryptonite and becomes bad, blowing out the torch of the Olympic Games, straightening the tower of Pisa and destroying a bar with peanuts after a shot of whisky.This movie is unfairly underrated maybe because it's so daring and original and it is yet to be rediscovered. It is destined to become a classic.
Superman III isn't as good as Superman I or II, but there is still an epic inside waiting to get out. It's better than Superman Returns, and far better than Superman IV. So why does it get such a bad rap? The answer is Richard Pryor, a weird robot, slapstick comedy, and the absence of Gene Hackman. I wouldn't be bothered by Pryor's acting if he was actually funny! But there are still some elements that make this movie great. Like the bad Superman fighting against the good Clark Kent, Clark going back home to Smallville, Clark's relationship with Lana, Superman saving <more>
people from a fire, the best special effects in the series, and a fight against a supercomputer that can read Superman's weaknesses. Fans of the comic also don't like this movie because it doesn't really use the source material for villains. But if you look hard enough you will find that they are just different interpretations. Ross Webster is the Corporate Lex Luthor, not the underground criminal Gene Hackman portrayed, Evil Superman is a form of Bizarro, and the supercomputer is like Braniac.
