Movie Superman II (1980)

20101103:
Many of the scenes depicting chaos in the movie are as silly as the scenes of chaos in the first movie.

Superman / Clark Kent (Christopher Reeve)

I love how there's always a handful of people who are watching and handily get in harm's way. Then there's people who are oblivious to what's happening around them until something disastrous comes their way. And then there's people who won't give up a phone conversation!

Overall, the movie was good.

Lois Lane (Margot Kidder)

Instant Comments:
1: The first several minutes (up to and including the opening credits) recap events from the first movie, and leave out any spoilers.

Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman) and Eve Teschmacher (Valerie Perrine)

2: What gives Superman his flight that he defies the momentum of space? [While it used to be an extension of his jump, it is now a separate ability which has various possible (unofficial) explanations]
1: It's great to hear "Kneel before Zod" in this movie. Apparently this movie was the first use of the phrase. I've only heard it before on Smallville.
