Notebook Reviews: SUPERMAN II

4 out of 5 stars

Richard Lester – 1980

Continuing the Man Of Steel‘s story from Richard Donner‘s brilliant original, Superman II isn’t quite as good as its predecessor – but it’s close. Very close.

Gene Hackman and Christopher Reeve are once again great as Lex Luthor and Superman -but it’s a shame there’s no Marlon Brando this time around. 

Superman II is sheer tongue in cheek comic book adventure  – and a lot of fun! Its’ almost like a Roger Moore James Bond movie in tone. This is fantastic entertainment for all.
