Reviews:  After Superman: The Movie's epic storytelling and Superman II's awesome battles, how could the first two hits be topped? In Superman III, meet Gus Gorman (Richard Pryor), a half-witted computer programming natural. For him a keyboard is a weapon - and Superman faces the microelectronic menace of his life. Christopher Reeve reprises his most beloved role, deepening his character's human side as Clark Kent reunites with old flame Lana Lang (Annette O'Toole) at a Smallville High class reunion.

And when Superman becomes his own worst enemy after Kryptonite exposure, Reeve pulls off both roles with dazzling skill.

"Incredible visual effects abound - but above all it has heart, heroism and high-flying humor. All in superabundance?" the reviewer says, and I am sure that in 1983 it was true, but now, with cpu tech reaching its own and of course blue-screen effects rampant in times past and green-screen serving the same but better purpose, it fails to do justice to the Superman legend.
