Revealing mistake: After Nuclear Man destroys the cab's hood, the shot changes and there's a thick string running behind him all along the car, and the cab driver is stretching out to pull it. Probably he was activating some sort of bad FX.
8.3/10.I really liked this sequel. I can understand people's dislike such as nobody wants Hollywood, of all places, to lecture us on nuclear war.Still it's better than Superman 3.Christopher Reeve is still the only Superman to me, the other guys can fight for second place.The only part I couldn't swallow was Clark not being attracted to Mariel Hemingway's Lacy Warfield.I get the boy scout routine but come on, what is this guy made of?Lead?A small joke there folks.Still it's a fun watch.
Trivia: Christopher Reeve said in his autobiography that he much preferred Richard Donner's approach rather than Sidney J. Furie's. He mentioned that if Donner had done the scene with Superman walking up to the big UN building, he would have shot on location of where that building in real life is, choreographed thousands of extras, had cars driving by on the street and cut to real shots of people gawking out of office windows. Instead, Furie shot at an industrial park in London with a giant matte painting, only a few extras, no buildings or cars and a couple of pigeons for added effect.
