Three Random Thoughts On Superman Three!!!

Superman 3 Movie 2

Welcome to another mini-blast for Superman’s 75th Birthday!  Today I shall look at the much-maligned Superman Three.  But it does have some good points!

Superman S SymbolTHE STORY!

So Superman has to fight a greedy industrialist, who using a hapless computer programmer, cause calamities and chaos in the Man of Steel’s life, including a wicked case of split personality!

Superman S SymbolRICHARD PRYOR!!

To provide the comic relief, they put the famously raunchy comedian Richard Pryor into this adventure in order to provide a different feel.  Unfortunately, it simply does not work.  Rumour has it they originally wanted Robin Williams.

Superman S SymbolTHE GOOD PARTS!!!

While much of the movie is very tepid, the highlights that exist include all the scenes with Lana Lang, played by future Smallville Ma Kent Annette O’Toole.  These parts help anchor the split personality issues Supes has to deal with here.

Superman Three is mostly for completest, but can still be entertaining for kids.  And the junkyard fight is pretty awesome as well

P.S.  This post is one of several I hope to do this year to celebrate the 75th Birthday of Superman.  Happy Birthday Kal-El!  Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.

P.P.S.  Superman Man Of Steel opens Friday, June 14th 2013.  For an indepth look at the creation of this landmark movie, check out Jeffrey Taylor’s columns.
