The Original Gangsta of The Superhero Sequel

13 years, 7 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

Fictional Places You Don’t Want To Visit (205 movies items)

"Metropolis, Illinois Ithe DC Comics universe, Metropolis is the fictional mega-city where Clark Kent works as a reporter for The Daily Planet and, in his spare time, fights crime as Superman. In the real world, Metropolis is a small town of about 6,500 people in southern Illinois, just across the Ohio River from Kentucky. Why you wouldn’t want to visit: While it’s not grimy, dark, or crime filled like it’s sister city, Gotham it’s still one where something bad could happen at any"

“I love the original Superman film and consider it one of the all time great superhero films. This sequel is a worthy one. While it is uneven in tone, that I agree, and a tad overlong, the special effects are above decent and the score is superb. The dialogue is pretty good and this film is probably the best plotted of all the films put together, being not too serious and not as silly as the succeeding two. The pacing is secure, and the subplot is sweet and doesn't distract. The direction is good, and the acting is fine. Christopher Reeve is still likable, and Gene Hackman and Terrence Stamp are rock-solid in the roles of Lex Luthor and General Zod. Overall, it isn't as good as the first film but it is the first and I think only worthy sequel(the third being lacklustre despite some good mom” read more

Movies That Messed Me Up (14 movies items)

"The directors cut or tv version in the 80’s. Always had a kid ride off on a horse to get help. From Zod and friends. Just to be killed. “He will never be a man.” You can find the scene on YouTube."
