Folks, this is the "Richard Donner"-cut. This far more superior to the "Lester"-cut. This is the version initially-directed by Richard Donner (before he was taken off the project, due to "creative differences"); re-edited; and remastered, with the Richard Donner-cut. This one shows a BETTER script. NOT the version where they added a new set of powers (disappearing/reappearing, telekinesis, being called "immortal", shooting white force-beams from the fingers, throwing his "S"-shield to cover people with...STARLOG magazine addressed these same issues long ago) that are nothing remotely related to Superman or his fellow Kryptonians.
This 2006 re-done version is the one comic book/super hero movie that set the format for all super hero movies to come... and changed the way comic books and graphic novels are written for all time to come. I recommend "SUPERMAN II: THE RICHARD DONNER CUT", over the other S-2. In fact, don't even watch the other version. Trust! --Mark A. Payne

This is a 1980 British-American superman II film directed by Richard Lester, based on the DC Comics character Superman.
It is a sequel to the 1978 film Superman.
The screenplay is in a bad shape.
No great director makes a good movie out of a bad script.
I believe this flick is a good example for that axiom.
It is boring and I quit viewing halfway through.

I agree , couldn't believe this mess. I mean Lois fools Clark with a gun loaded BLANKS?! Give this a miss and find the original cut.
