Superman II

The Man of Steel is back, and better than ever in one of cinema’s greatest sequels! The rip-roaring adventure soars with Christopher Reeve reprising his signature role in the action-packed, crowd-pleasing Superman II. While love blossoms between Clark Kent and Lois Lane (Margot Kidder), three outlaws from Krypton descend to Earth to confront the caped wonder in a cosmic battle for world supremacy. Teaming with super-villain Lex Luther (Gene Hackman), General Zod (Terence Stamp) & his Kryptonian criminals vow to bring the planet to its knees. But they’re gonna have to go through Superman first. Director Richard Lester (taking over for Richard Donner) starts things off like a rocket and never lets up, showcasing more romance, humor, excitement and patriotism than nearly all the superhero movies that traveled in its wake.

“4 Stars. Superman II begins in midstream, and never looks back” – Roger Ebert

“It is that rarity of rarities; a sequel that readily surpasses the original.” – Richard Schickel, Time Magazine

Superman II emerges as a solid, classy, cannily constructed piece of entertainment which gets down to action almost immediately.” – Variety

“The combination of Richard Donner’s superb original casting and visual attack with Lester’s wit and his ear for sound proves a pretty formidable alliance.” – Time Out

Superman III

The Man of Steel flies high in the wild & wacky Superman III and this time it’s Superman vs. the king of computerized crime with Christopher Reeve and Richard Pryor as you’ve never seen them before – more action – more twists – more comedy – more FUN! Pryor is a bumbling conman and computer genius under the thumb of an evil tycoon (Robert Vaughn). When his newest creation has the power to change the weather, control the world or even reprogram Superman, only the man who pulled the switch can help the caped crusader pull the plug.

“The reason why we love the movies” – Cinescape Magazine
