Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Continuity mistake: When Superman is entering the UN, an Arab man greets him and turns his head around from right to left. In the following closer angle he repeats the movement.

Revealing mistake: When Lenny's car, with the cops in it, flies into the air you can see it's empty.

Continuity mistake: Superman is on the moon, about to cause the sun eclipse, and flies to the left, as if he were to exit the moon. In the next shot Superman is seen coming from the void towards the moon again.

Continuity mistake: When Nuclear Man walks towards the newspaper on the desk, the phone cable's position changes through shots.

Continuity mistake: After Lenny calls Nuclear Man "experiment freako", the stool from the drum disappears.

Continuity mistake: When the Soviets are about to launch the missile in the snowy field, there are two soldiers on the right and a third with a black hat running away. A second later there are three soldiers plus the one with the black hat who's now there.

Continuity mistake: When Nuclear Man is destroying Metropolis his hair suddenly changes from messy to perfectly brushed.

Continuity mistake: The SWAT people that are falling off the truck when it gets lifted disappear in the next angle where we see the pavement and a close up of the front of the truck.

Deliberate mistake: When the window shops explode, a taxi cab door is widely open to show a Budweiser ad on it. In the following wide angle from above the door is closed.

Continuity mistake: When Lois is packing Superman's cape and Lacy says "I had nothing to do with it", there's no continuity with the passers-by seen behind. A kid in a red t-shirt, for example, appears from nowhere.

Revealing mistake: When nuclear Man shoots at the cops, the scene is being played backwards.

Continuity mistake: When Superman saves the girl from the Great Wall of China and starts rising, a woman with a white hat behind lifts her arm to say goodbye. In the following angle she is repeating the movement.

Revealing mistake: The rock that hits the prop-astronaut blows his head off. Seconds later the head is back in place.

Continuity mistake: Nuclear Man watches the Daily Planet paper with the "New publisher for your favourite paper" headline. The first shot shows the paper slightly wrinkled on the left and bent to the right. In the following angle it is straight and perfect.

Continuity mistake: In a split second, all of the snow on the mountain cut by Superman disappears.

Revealing mistake: In the aerial shot of Nuclear Man entering the crater of the volcano the smoke coming from it is still, thus revealing it's a painting.

Factual error: When Superman addresses the UN, the delegate presumably representing the United Kingdom appears behind an "England" sign - "England" is not an international entity represented at the UN, while the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is.

Other mistake: When Lenny has the prison guards locked in the car and is putting the top up, the steering wheel is spinning but the front wheels aren't moving. The amount of revolutions of the steering wheel is mechanically impossible also.

Continuity mistake: After Superman ducks the moon rock, there's a close-up of Nuclear Man's black boot stepping on Superman's boot, yet in the next angle, it's Nuclear Man who's yelling in pain. It should be Superman instead.

Visible crew/equipment: When Nuclear Man's laser beams send Superman flying away on the moon, the shadow of the crane moving him is visible.

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).
