god i hate this movie... so much. Really, Donner was the only person (at the time) who seemed to understand Superman more than ANYONE else in Hollywood. Also, love the big sparkly zoot suit they gave Nuclear Man I. That'll strike fear into the heart of Superman!!! Guess Lex has more than enough money to pay for a posh penthouse, super b-movie science equipment, and all that other crap... but won't shill out two pennies for a better suit for his diabolical creation???

And a token to Reeves as an actor keeping a pretty straight face for most of that lame-o scene.

Ow my eyes!

Really? Nobody mentionned Super weaving yet?

Jaimas Jul 16th, 2009 07:36 PM

Or Superlandscaping? What about Super Woman's Intuition or even... Super Friction?

I liked Nucular Man (2 retroactivatedly), he was a American Gladiator with superpowers and even more ridiculous hair!

Heh, this was on tv just a couple of days ago.
Amazing how the passage of time has done nothing to heal the
wounds inflicted by watching this steaming pile. It might be better than Superman Returns but it sure as hell isn't a patch on Roger Cormans Fantastic Four.

For some reason when I was a kid I couldn't get enough of this movie, I think its cause I was too stupid to tell the difference between the video boxes at the store so it was rented over and over again. There is something very depressing about how these movies ended up looking to me, its hard to explain but check the pics of anyone flying, it doesn't look right for some reason, anytime I see some piss poor shit from the 80s I get depressed.

Superman is still in demand and love by people whether a movie,comic or books.It has something to with his adventures and technologies.

When Lex took his Welding mask off he threw it off screen... yet, no thud.

I love how the original Nuclear Man is supposed to be Bizarro, really, but comes out like Dave Coulier wearing one of those glittery fright wigs. And also with some sort of metal clock on his dingus.

Seriously, what the hell WAS that?!

From Wiki..."The character of Nuclear Man was originally Bizarro in the 1st draft of the script, but the rights were unavailable at the time, so they made a whole new character"
BIZARRO RIGHTS!

Nuclear Man, and his various powers and manifestations, make him Superman's only rival, like Bizarro. Nuclear Man suggests that the magic of Superman's world is in how we perceive and celebrate his intentions towards teamwork. Perhaps this means people want Superman to share his passion for teamwork. Stories like this encourage confidence if we avoid idol worship.

Chris Reeve was awesome as Superman, even in this turkey. My favorite scene is when he goes into the United Nations building, announces that he's getting rid of all nuclear weapons, & the place erupts with applause. I met Margot Kidder at a con & she was super-nice (pardon the pun).

Wow... Just, wow. I joined this forum just to talk about this awe-inspiringly heinous piece of work. I heard that around 45 minutes of footage were edited out of the final cut of this film(that's why Supes, after being scratched by the press-on nails of doom, goes from a little cold to full blown nuclear space leukemia in about 2 minutes of screen time). If this nugget of Hell is at all typical of the cut footage, then the editor deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for his valiant effort to save the human race from the forces of evil.
