The Worst “Part 3” Movies Ever Made

The movie felt like a 125-minute slapstick bit testing the patience of audience members. Almost like a “Superman meets the Three Stooges” type of gimmick. Richard Prior was cast after saying he enjoyed the second Superman, but his involvement didn’t pan out. It could have been the material; it could have been the comedian; in the end, it was probably both. The tone, corny plot, lame villain (Gene Hackman didn’t reprise his role as Lex Luthor until the even worse Superman IV: The Quest For Peace) are only part of what makes Superman III a dull turd.
