Oh how the Man of Steel have fallen! Synthetic kryptonite laced with tar splits Superman in two: good Clark Kent and bad Man of Steel. The film features a cast of Christopher Reeve, Richard Pryor, Annette O’Toole, Annie Ross, Pamela Stephenson, Robert Vaughn, Marc McClure, and Gavan O’Herlihy. Yes, this is the first real low point in the series due to having a more campy tone then usual. Richard Pryor just tries to hard to be funny and everything just feels out of place. Also all the non-Lex Luthor villains suck so bad; what were they thinking with this one. But on a positive note; I did find the Smallville stuff involving a high school reunion and Superman battling his dark side to be one of the few interesting things about the movie. But that ain’t saying much. A non-recommendation for DC Fans!
