    Review: Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987) Christopher Reeve returns to the role that made him a star, after an absence of four years, as the Man of Steel in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace. It's a great disappointment as Sidney Furie's film comes off as being little more than a parody. Quite unlike the 1978 release which made us believe a man could fly--or at least do so more convincingly than in this effort. Producers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus bring the incredible heroics of the comic book favorite down to Earth with a loud thud more so than a medallion of Kryptonite ever could. Reeve is credible as usual in the dual role of Clark Kent and the title role. Yet some shoddy effects make his heroic feats look laughable. Nor is he helped by a script that is as much of a hodgepodge as most of the film sadly is. Surprisingly, Reeve is credited as one of the story writers along with Mark Rosenthal and Lawrence Konner--both the writers of the OK Romancing the Stone sequel The Jewel of the Nile--and nabs a credit as a second unit director. David Warfield (Sam Wanamaker, last seen as the capo in Raw Deal and appeared in the stalled 1985 Reeve vehicle The Aviator) is a would-be William Randolph Hearst who has purchased The Daily Planet and has designs on turning the trusted Metropolis staple into a tabloid. This doesn't sit well with editor Perry White (Jackie Cooper). Warfield's ravishing daughter Lacy (Mariel Hemingway) has some ideas for the paper and has designs on a certain mild-mannered reporter. Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman) is freed from incarceration by his punk nephew Lenny (Jon Cryer) who is hoping to make good on his vow to destroy Superman. He also hopes to keep some arms dealers in business. Luthor may have found a way to achieve both. Thanks to his nemesis, who has vowed to rid the world of all nuclear missiles, Luthor might very well have found the desired results in making the Man of Steel history and earning a sizable commission

    I didn't find it any worse than Superman III, I enjoyed the Mariel Hemingway role. The special effects are okay, but the film series is definitely grasping for straws and it's getting old.
