The Original Gangsta of The Superhero Sequel

5 years, 4 months ago at Apr 16 4:50
Okay, after his intro in the first movie, Supes finally gets to take the kid gloves off, kick some real @ss & take names. Three rogue Kryptonians come to Earth to reveal to the Last Son of Krypton that he's not exactly the last son of Krypton. And though this isn't as good as the first one, it's still pretty soild for a sequel, especially back when good sequels were rarer than last sons of Krypton... read more

The second best of the Superman series for me for multiple reasons. Christopher Reeve is at his best and plays the Superman/Clark Kent dual role perfectly. The action is more exciting this time round, albeit the weak climax. The three villains from Krypton are menacing and Gene Hackman is spot-on adding a comedic touch to the film as Lex Luthor. My favourite scenes are the ones at Niagara Falls - ... read more

An average movie

It seems rather unfair to judge this movie nowadays with our modern perspective. Indeed, for already 10 years, the super-hero features have been ruling the box-office with an iron fist and you get at least 4 of those every year with some wall-to-wall CGI so we have become rather accustomed or even blasé concerning the genre. So, when reviewing this feature, it is important to keep in mind that it... read more

“I liked this movie as a kid, but it hasn't aged well. The plot moves pretty slow and there are some aweful gags that ruin the whole thing.

The first Superman film had impressive sets and big actors. There were romantic scenes with Superman and Lois. It had a magical feel to it, even if it had a preposterous ending.

Superman II has a couple of good scenes that build on this, but too often it is interrupted by the Gene Hackman scenes.

Gene Hackman was highly regarded for his portrayal of Popeye Doyle in the French Connection, but as Lex Luthor...frankly, he's terrible. To be fair, the character is written that way, but for whatever reason when Hackman is on screen the film doesn't just lose credibility, it becomes hard to watch. Luthor is an idiot who ba” read more
