Of course, Superman saves the world, but the real news is that there's still some life in the series.

Fortunately, the regular Superman performers all do their jobs well.
December 23, 2006
Disappointing to say the least, but at least it doesn't have Richard Pryor this time as its star.

The Superman series gets more and more whimsically outrageous as it goes along.
July 8, 2020
"Superman IV: The Quest for Peace," a confused and cheap-looking movie that evidently was butchered in the editing room, would be better titled "Superman Farce: The Search for a Quick Buck."
November 5, 2019
In his fourth and feeblest movie appearance in just under a decade, the man of steel in blue underwear becomes a peacenik.

As bad as Superman 3 is, Superman 4 is even worse.
December 8, 2017
Subtitled The Quest for Peace, this Superman sequel should have been called the The Quest for a Plot.
July 12, 2016
Terrible '80s sequel has violence, nuclear weapons.

The impoverishment here is not merely of means, but of spirit.

May 5, 2014
The overall effect is of a story atomized and dying before our eyes, collapsing into smashed pulp, ground down into big-budget Kryptonite ash.

Superman IV is cinematic kryptonite. Not only could it kill the Superman series, it might also leave filmgoers feeling weak.
May 5, 2014
Tthe enthusiastic hamming can't hide the clunking direction by Sidney J Furie and the sub-standard special effects.

May 5, 2014
It's hard to escape the conclusion that all the originality and excitement have been drained from the series.
May 5, 2014
It`s hard to summon much wonder when Superman goes mano-a-mano with Nuclear Man, a Lex Luthor creation with a static electricity problem.
May 5, 2014
Even at 91 minutes, the film seems truncated.
June 13, 2013
It's a shame that "Superman" had to leave the eighties in such a disgraceful fashion.
June 11, 2013
For sentimentality's sake, it's great watching Reeve and company reprise their roles even if it's in the bastard child edition of the series, but this isn't just one of the worst comic book films, it's one of the worst films ever made.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/10
July 12, 2010
Predictably awful fourth installment.
