Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Continuity mistake: After the volcano erupts, a big black cloud covers the city, but a wider angle shows the sky clear.

Revealing mistake: When Lois and Superman are flying together, they turn green, specially Lois's arms and hands.

Deliberate mistake: The same front shot of Superman flying is used over and over and over again.

Continuity mistake: After nuclear Man crumples the cab's hood, there's another taxi behind starting to drive slowly towards the damaged cab. A frame later, a new angle shows that taxi repeating the previous movements but really fast.

Continuity mistake: In the hotel, right before Lacy enters the elevator, the hall of the hotel is filled with plants, couches and people. A second later, while Clark is on the trolley, the hall is a vast, empty place for the trolley to wander around.

Continuity mistake: When Superman is out on the balcony with Lois, a tall, wide building is reflected on the glass behind, but when the angle changes to Superman's POV the building is gone, and now there's just a vast open space and a thin skyscraper.

Continuity mistake: When Lacy shows the mock front page of the Daily Planet she holds it covering the red circle on the top right. A frame later she's holding it several inches down.

Continuity mistake: When Superman and Nuclear Man fight on the balcony the high powered binoculars disappear.

Continuity mistake: When the Soviet missile is about to be launched, the sky changes from daytime to dusk.

Continuity mistake: The Soviet missile has legible CCCP red letters, but in the following shot it's covered in snow, although the close-ups don't show any snow falling.

Continuity mistake: When Nuclear Man sends the police cars back, there's a man close to a mailbox on the left. There's a very brief cut before the cars explode but when the explosion takes place, the man has vanished.

Continuity mistake: After Perry White delivers his final speech a woman in a yellow dress goes up the escalator. In the following shot, no one's there.

Deliberate mistake: Nuclear Man asks Superman "where's the girl", to which Superman replies to him that he'll never find her. All the plot involving Nuclear Man and Lacy was cut out, so both guys talking about "a girl" (which they both know about) is useless and senseless here.

Audio problem: When Nuclear Man knocks out Superman on the moon we hear some growling, but their mouths aren't moving.

Continuity mistake: When nuclear Man watches the newspaper on the table, the lighter is by the side of the phone. In the following shot it's in front of it.

Continuity mistake: When Nuclear Man fires at the fire truck a short piece of hose comes out. A second later, in the following shot, the hose is 10 meters long and all over the place.

Continuity mistake: When Superman throws Nuclear Man down the chimney, the sky is grey and cloudy, but a second later it's pitch black.

Continuity mistake: Before Nuclear Man burns Luthor's dollar bill, Luthor looks to his right, immediately after, the shot from behind shows him looking straight forward.

Continuity mistake: The SWAT van is lifted next to the curb, but a second later appears in the middle of the street surrounded by cars.

Continuity mistake: When the statue of Liberty is about to crash on the street, a close shot is seen of jammed cars and hysterical people. When the shot changes to Superman flying to the rescue, the jam, the cops and the people have disappeared, and all is nice and quiet in Metropolis.

Lex Luthor: Lenny, I've always considered you the Dutch Elm disease in my family tree.



Near the end of the film, Superman gives a press conference in front of a bluish mirror-glass building which is meant to be the Daily Planet skyscraper in Metropolis (which we all know is New York, sort of). The shot is framed so you can only see the bottom of the building - necessary as it is only about 3 floors high, and is in fact the railway station in Milton keynes, England, about 400 yards from where I work. Even the crowd have a vaguely British look about them - presumably passers-by were recruited and stood there in their own clothes (this would matter less now - Brits look more American than they did in the Eighties).
