4DVD Box Set - Contains The Following Films: Superman: The Movie | Superman 2 | Superman 3 | Superman 4: The Quest For Peace. Go through Quidco for 6% cashback.

Synopsis A box office smash, an Academy Award winner and a beloved fan favourite for more than a generation, Superman: The Movie now soars even higher in a state-of-the-art digital transfer from restored elements and with dynamically remixed digital audio. There's more: the epic adventure now includes eight minutes integrated into the film by director Richard Donner. Among the highlights: added footage of the Krypton Council, a glimpse of veterans from previous Superman screen incarnations, a meeting with Jor-El that underscores the Man of Steel s purpose on Earth and an extended sequence inside Lex Luthor's gauntlet of doom. Christopher Reeve, unknown when cast, is flawless as the title hero and fumbling alter-ego Clark Kent. And Marlon Brando (Jor-El), Gene Hackman (Luthor) and Margot Kidder (Lois Lane) offer indelible performances that fuel the film's aura of legend.

OK deal, but this is a terrible box set. The first two films are on ugly old double sided discs they didn't manage to sell separately, and the last two films (the worst films) are on new single sided discs that match in with the set. I ended up selling this after watching them all - if I want them again in the future I'll either buy the decent box that's coming out (when it's been discounted quite a bit!) or just the first couple of films cheap.

The first three films are excellent. It's only the 4th one that is a bit weak due to the Salkinds pulling out and the limited budget.

Well worth £13.99. :thumbsup:

I found 3 quite bad as well, and IMDB agrees as it only gets a 4.5 which is very low. 4 gets 3.2 which is just terrible. 2 gets 6.5 which isn't great, but I quite enjoyed the film anyway, definitely worth seeing in my opinion. The "Richard Donner" cut on the new DVDs is meant to be VERY good but I've not seen it.

Special Edition Superman 2 is ]£12 from HMV (with their excellent quidco/discounts) or play.com and that includes the Richard Donner cut and special features, released 20 Nov, plain edition is about ]£6. Plain old Superman 1 is ]£4.25 at Foxy. Together they cost slightly more than the box set but it's probably worth it if you're a real fan of the better films. If you want the special edition of 1 I think that's only in the ]£20 box set.

Guess this is a cheapish way to get all the films (£3.50 each), but it's just not a very exciting box set. You should really stop watching after either 2 or at most 3. I wish I'd followed that advice.

Anyway, the 13 disc box set is coming out soon and eventually that will probably get quite cheap.

Superman 3 is a fantastic movie. Richard Pryor is hilarious as the computer genious. I don't think a film that grosses over $56 million in the US alone can be considered too much of a flop.

Superman 4 however is indefensible, how they could justify giving a brand like Superman a feable budget of $17,000,000 is beyond me. The effects were quite terrible and it made less money than it's budget in the US.

You're entitled to your own opinion I guess, but a lot of people agree it's quite bad which is why it only gets 4.5 on IMDB. I try not base my opinions of films entirely on the IMDB score, but 4.5 is quite low!

Welcome to the forums RanW0oney!

@ 0d0d - I think the imdb score is quite a good judge of how good the film is going to be. I use it all the time to check out ratings before I see a movie.
