Product Description:

Once again mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent (Christopher Reeve), hiding his identity as Superman, must fight for law and order. This time around, a triumvirate of nasty villains from the planet Krypton break free of their dimensional prison and hightail it to Earth, where they enjoy the same superpowers as Superman. Meanwhile, Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) has discovered that Superman and Clark are the same person, so Superman debates whether to give up his abilities to become a normal man and share his life with Lois.

Richard Lester (A HARD DAY'S NIGHT) originally helmed this sequel, but for this version Richard Donner (LETHAL WEAPON) has made significant re-edits and taken on the mantle of director. Lester's version excluded Marlon Brando's reprisal of his role as Jor-El from the first film, but Donner has scooped these scenes up from the cutting room floor and added them to his edit of the film.

Rating 4.5 Synopsis in error Movie Lover: from STRATFORD, CT US -- February, 5, 2011

The synopsis on this page is in error. Both "Superman" and "Superman II" were filmed simultaneously by Richard Donner as director and was planned as a two-part story, but there was material yet to be finished on "Superman II" when disputes with Marlon Brando's appearance in II and disagreements between Warner's and Donner led both to leave the project. Richard Lester ("A Hard Day's Night") was brought in to finish the second film, and a number of scenes originally filmed by Donner were re-shot. Lester ended up getting full credit as director. Donner's version, with the scenes between Superman and Jor-El working better than the reshot scenes of Supes with his mother Lara, carries more of the tone later seen in Bryan Singer's "Superman Returns." Donner's version - slightly more serious. Lester's version - funnier.
