Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Continuity mistake: When Nuclear Man arrives on Earth, he enters a shady place which makes him lose his power and cools his body, producing some frozen-like smoke. The next two times that he enters a dark place (inside the elevator and in space) he doesn't produce the smoke.

Plot hole: Superman traps the supervillain (whose power depends on sunlight) inside of an elevator to incapacitate him. Superman then ripped the elevator out of the building. He then plants it on the far side of the moon. Later on, sunlight starts to shine into the elevator through a slit at where the doors meet. The villain of course recharges and comes after Superman again. Now, if light could get through that crack there, then why couldn't it get through when the elevator was ripped out of the building in BROAD DAYLIGHT?

Continuity mistake: During the Great Wall of China scene, the sky changes from cloudy and grey in the shots involving people, to bright and sunny when the wall explodes.

Factual error: When the villain takes the reporter into space (the earth is just a circle off in the distance), then weakens and lets go of her, not only does she start to fall, she starts to fall straight down and has to hang onto him. (Oddly enough, HE's NOT falling). Did somebody inject normal earth gravity into mid-space?

Plot hole: When Nuclear Man sees a picture of Lacy Warfield on the newspaper he decides to go after her. When confronted by Superman he asks "Where is the woman?" Superman responds that he'll never find her. How could Superman know which woman Nuclear Man was talking about? There was no indication that Superman knew that Nuclear Man was looking for Lacy.

Plot hole: Nuclear Man makes his appearance at Lex's house, walks a couple meters and faints "because of lack of sun" according to Lex. This idiotic, the place is surrounded by windows and there are beams of light everywhere.

Sacha

Revealing mistake: After Nuclear Man destroys the cab's hood, the shot changes and there's a thick string running behind him all along the car, and the cab driver is stretching out to pull it. Probably he was activating some sort of bad FX.

Sacha

Plot hole: For some strange reason, when Nuclear Man passes away in space, he remains floating, however Lacy, who is grabbing his hand, falls downwards.

Continuity mistake: After Superman lets go of the elevator on the surface of the moon, the cables fall down with the elevator, but in the close-up the cables are up and fall down again.
