Customer Reviews

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - Can't beat the deal
For any fan of superman this is an excellent deal...and if you are just a superhero movie fan...then three outta four ain't bad...especially for the price. The quest for peace being the weakest link in this four film set makes the purchase a no brainer. You don't get the ultra spiffy re-edited Donner cut of superman 2....but Zod still rules..and the original is still a great version of the film.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - "Superman 4 Film Favorites" Collection
This is a 2-disc set that includes the four Superman films starring Christopher Reeve.

Superman has a commentary by the producer and exec. producer, along with theatrical trailers and tv spots.

Superman II has a commentary by the producer and exec. producer, a theatrical trailer, and "Superman's Souffle" deleted scene

Superman III has another commentary by the producer and exec. producer, vintage tv special "The Making of Superman III", additional scenes, and theatrical trailer.

Superman IV has commentary by co-screenwriter Mark Rosenthal, additional scenes and thaetrical trailer.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - Superman (4 Film Favorites): A Treasure Trove for New Fans
For those who still don't believe that a man can fly, this four-DVD pack provides a wonderful opportunity for children of any age who haven't yet discovered the timeless magic of the late Christopher Reeve's performance as the legendary Man of Steel.

The four films (I-1978, II-1981, III-1983, and IV-1987) are presented here double-sided (I/II) and (III/IV) in their theatrical release form. Each movie will features a trailer and a producer's commentary, in addition to a few extra goodies (i.e. tv commercials, a "Superman III" documentary, and some deleted scenes). Perhaps the best deleted scene is from "Superman II," offering a rare glimpse inside the Fortress of Solitude as Lois gently offers Superman a few baking tips. Its amusing romantic context is much appreciated as an added attraction.

In terms of rating the film with their extras:

"Superman: The Movie": *****
"Superman II": **** 1/2
"Superman III": ***
"Superman IV: The Quest for Peace": ** 1/2

Overall: **** (plus an additional * for the generously low cost).

About the movies

Superman the Movie
Superman The Movie tells the story of Superman's arrival on earth, and
his quest for truth and justice and the American way. Superman the movie is considered the best by most. It starred Christopher Reeve, of course, as both Clark Kent and Superman. Gene Hackman played the evil Lex Luthor. I still picture Gene Hackman as evil even today. He wasn't just evil though, he was hilarious especially in Superman II.

Jackie Cooper played Perry White. Glenn Ford was perfect as Jonathan Kent. He was a great actor. I don't think anyone else could have played the down the earth yet very wise foster father of Clark Kent as well as he did. I only wish he was given more time in the movie. Margot Kidder of course did a great job as Lois Lane, and Marlon Brando as Jor-el was also a brilliant choice. Marlon Brando didn't do to bad on the part. He was paid $4 million dollars for his ten minutes on the screen.

Two very notable cameos were Kirk Alyn the first Superman and Noel Neill the first Lois Lane. She played in the serials and the tv show. Kirk Alyn's part was edited out.

And of course there is the magnificent score from John Williams which is some of the best movie music ever conducted.

Superman II

The story of Superman vs the evil kryptonians who Jor-el had exiled to the phantom Zone.

The sequel to Superman the movie was almost as good, and I say that having 20 years to think about it. During my childhood I thought of Superman II as the best because of the action sequences and special effects, but over all I think the original has just a little more soul.
Superman II (Two-Disc Special Edition)
It was the only Superman film to be filmed by two directors. For this reason the film is surrounded with controversy since original director Richard Donner had completed, by his estimation, roughly 75% of the movie in 1977 before being taken off the project. Many of the scenes shot by second director Richard Lester (who had been an uncredited producer on the first film) in 1979 are refilmed Donner sequences.

It was released in Europe and Australia in late 1980 but not in the United States until June 19, 1981 (one week after the release of Raiders of the Lost Ark). Selected premiere engagements of Superman II were presented in Megasound, a high-impact surround sound system similar to Sensurround. It has since become the most fan-edited movie of all time, surpassing even the Star Wars movies.

According to statements by Donner, roughly 25% of the theatrical cut of Superman II contains footage he shot, including all of Gene Hackman's scenes. In 1984, when Superman II premiered on television, 24 minutes were re-inserted into the film (17 minutes on ABC). Much of the extra footage was directed by Richard Donner. In the ABC-TV version, a U.S. "polar patrol" is shown picking up the three Kryptonians and Lex Luthor at the end of the film. Without this ending, it appears that Superman has let the Kryptonians die, though Superman has a strict code against killing and their deaths aren't necessary once they are depowered. On the other hand, the theatrical version's ending implies that Luthor is left stranded at the Fortress of Solitude, leaving the viewer to wonder how he got to prison in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace--that question was answered in the extended versions. The ending of the extended cuts also has Superman, with Lois standing beside him, destroy the Fortress of Solitude.

A brand new re-cut of the film, restoring as much of Donner's original conception as possible, titled Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut, was released in November 2006, with approximately 83% of the footage therein having been filmed by Donner, and the remainder being Richard Lester footage kept to fill in the gaps of footage that Donner had never been able to film before his firing. The latter part of the aforementioned scene can also be found on Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut, while the part where the police arrive is a deleted scene.

Superman III

In this sequel Superman fights against himself and a super computer created by Gus Gorman, played by Richard Pryor. This gets a lot of criticism, but I think that is really due to the fact that the high quality of the first two movies made expectations too high for further installments of these sequels. Richard Pryor wouldn't have been my first choice to star with Christopher Reeve, and it was disappointing not to see the continuation of the Lois and Superman romance, but all in all it was a good movie. I didn't really like the whole super computer bit, but the scenes from Smallville were great, and the fight between Clark and the evil Superman was the most exciting part of the movie. I wish the movie had surrounded the Clark vs Superman concept. It could have really been as big as the second movie with the battle against the phantom zone villains.

Superman IV

Superman takes on the nuclear arms race, and the Nuclear Man

This one really gets blasted, but again this movie's biggest enemy is the high expectations created by the first two movies. The first Superman movie in my humble opinion was probably the best movie ever made, at the least the most spectacular, and it makes it hard to watch Superman IV with an open mind without expecting to much from it.

The problem with Superman IV is that it seemed to be thrown together too quickly. The whole movie seemed choppy. Like someone decided to have 10 different directors go film 10 different sequences and put it together. It lacked the heart and soul of the first three movies, but compared to a lot of other sci-fi movies I have seen since, it was still worth watching. Any big fan of Superman can still get some enjoyment from this picture.
