Do not let the press fool you, This was really Richard Donner's movie, and to have Lester turn it into this mess, was unforgivable.

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

With his perfect pacing, elegant narrative design, and depth of characterization, Richard Lester has made as good a matinee movie as could be imagined: it's a big, generous, beautifully crafted piece of entertainment, with the distinctive Lester touch in the busy backgrounds and the throwaway dialogue.

A marvelous toy. It's funny, it's full of tricks and it manages to be royally entertaining, which is really all it aims for. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Superman II delivers on the promise hinted at in "Superman." Which is the better film? That's a hard choice to make, since both succeed in different ways. Full Review

It brings the fantastic into our everyday lives; it delights in showing us the reaction of the man on the street to Superman's latest stunt. Full Review
