      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The Superman series bottoms out here: the action is boring, the special effects look cheaper, and none of the actors appear interested in where the plot's going.

      James Berardinelli ReelViews In the end, while it can be said that Christopher Reeve made four Superman movies, only the first two are worth watching. Rated: 1.5/4 Jan 9, 2022 Full Review Dave Kehr Chicago Tribune The impoverishment here is not merely of means, but of spirit. Rated: 1/4 May 5, 2014 Full Review Michael Wilmington Los Angeles Times The overall effect is of a story atomized and dying before our eyes, collapsing into smashed pulp, ground down into big-budget Kryptonite ash. May 5, 2014 Full Review Don Shanahan Cinephile Hissy Fit Podcast The charm is there, as well as Reeve's dedication, but the execution is not. Jun 21, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy It appears to have been filmed for a buck fifty. Rated: 1.5/4 May 13, 2023 Full Review Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies Superman IV: The Quest for Peace is the single worst Superman film of all time--a disgrace to the franchise, its creators, and most of all, the audience's intelligence.

      David W A terrible end to Reeves turn as Superman with a lousy plot, laughable special effects and most damningly, it's very poorly acted. A lamentable movie and a hugely dissapointing effort from all concerned. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/21/24 Full Review Beau L Well didn't think the series could get any worse.. man I was wrong. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/08/24 Full Review Rami A This film ought to have been called Superman IV: The Quest For Piss. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/02/24 Full Review Gabriel P Bad movie but not as horrendous as the 3rd one. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 10/29/23 Full Review Kazall R Even tho Superman 4: The Quest For Peace maybe a bad movie but at the very least it has it's inner-heart unlike Superman 3. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 10/24/23 Full Review Lothburke Terrible acting . Awful movie . 2 stars for Christopher reeve ❤️ Rated 2 out of 5 stars 10/01/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
