Description

On the verge of giving up his powers for love, Superman (Reeve) is confronted by three super-criminals from his home planet who have escaped imprisonment and come to Earth with the same abilities as the man of steel. Imperious insurrectionist General Zod (Terence Stamp), seductive but sadistic Ursa (Sarah Douglas), and mute brute Non (Jack O'Halloran) challenge Superman to a cosmic battle for world supremacy--just as Superman and Lois Lane (Kidder) finally get romantically involved.

    Title says it all. This is not really a continuation of The Movie & if you pay attention, doesn't even make sense at certain points. Probably bc the "director" was just re shooting Donner's footage, which was already done(some scenes, like All of Lex's still were Donner's footage). It had more action(I guess) , but made less sense is the bottom line...but I still loved it.
  • Great movie

  • Holding off to see if the Big Apple will be serving the best slice

    There is just something about Reeve that other Superman movies can't compare to. I always liked this one the best, but after just hearing about the director's cut, (as I still have not seen it yet) I couldn't wait to see it. Then I found out it is only on Blue Ray (at least that I know of). Apple I am not sure what kind of contract you have but I mean come on your the "Big Apple" and not some "micro window" company. I am sure you could get that version if you wanted to? And I know I am not the only one holding off on purchasing this version in hopes that the director's cut will be out soon.

    Not as good as the first movie but still a great movie. Man of Steel will never live up to this
  • The Best One!

    This is my favorite of all of The Superman movies. I loved the original but like this one a little more. I saw the Donner Cut and hated it.

    While the Donner cut offers some wonderful new moments and never before seen performances, it remains the ultimate cut scene and not really a complete film. Many things had not been worked out before the director switch up and the final product is incomplete even now with some giant lapses in logic (why destroy the Fortress if he turns the world back in time anyway for example) and some great lines have been removed to simply make it different from the theatrical cut. This version, the theatrically released version is complete work, albeit from two directors, but fully realized nonetheless. Lester's work has been unfairly passed over in favor of Donner's work in many circles and in many cases is superior to the Donner footage (Lester didn't have a toilet joke for example). The battle in Metropolis is still the standard for superhero battles and Reeves remains iconic no matter who's in the director's chair. The Donner cut is a must see, but this version is the one that has rightfully earned it's place as one of the greatest superhero movies of all time.

    Don't buy anyone telling you that the Donner cut is better. This is the best version and the best Superman movie by far.
