Superman III

Superman III

Not only must the man of steel fight a new enemy, he must also face his greatest foe: Himself.

So many things to say about this movie, just have to decide in what order i say them. This movie seemed to not be able to decide if Superman was indeed the main character. It switched between Kalel and a supporting character Gus, a down of his luck computer programmer who happens to be at the right place at the right time and is quickly promoted to his boss' right hand man.
I didn't like this. I thought it was annoying. I also wondered why the characters were even there at all. It would have made more sense to me to have had Lex Luthor as the bad guy rather than create an extremely similar character and rename him.
I did like the third act where superman is given a faulty kryptonite piece and becomes depressed and eventually leading to a fight between himself and Clark Kent. However what annoyed me the most was that to create the faulty rock and give superman his depressed persona they used tar. Surely the cigarette ingredient they should have used would have been nicotine??
I didn't like the new squeeze that Clark Kent was chasing. Its Lois and Clark. Not old girl he knew from school and Clark.
i thought overall the movie was slow and still i had to laugh at the miniature models as used for special effects. I know the movie is nearly 30 years old, but still. They were laughable and this from a guy who recently had no quarrel with any of the effect is all three Original Series of Star Trek.

Overall: 5/10
