A battle with the criminal mastermind, Lex Luthor, ends with Superman hurling a nuclear warhead into space where it explodes, but not harmlessly.

Watch Superman II (Video 2006) - Alternative Versions.
Before you watch this DVD there is something very important that you
must understand. Richard Donner never completed Superman II. And, since
he never completed the film it was impossible to truly make a "Donner
cut" per say. What this DVD (edited and produced by Michael Thau) shows
us is what the film "may" have looked like. Once you understand that
you will be able to enjoy the experience.
Why do I go through that explanation? Well...because from the complains
I've heard and read it seems that people don't seem to understand that.
So, that's why I felt it should be addressed.
Now, on to the review...
Donner was hired by the Salkinds in '76 or '77 to direct two Superman
films at the same time. When time and money was running out the
decision was made to stop production on Superman II and focus on the
first one. By that point Donner had already completed about 80% of the
film. When Superman became the biggest hit of 1978 the decision by the
Salkinds was to fire Donner. He was replaced by Richard Lester (A Hard
Day's Night) and Lester re-shot most of the film. Only about 30% of
Donner's work remained.
After almost 30 years WB finally released Donner's version since most
fans demanded to see it. And, on the DVD, Donner, thanks the fans which
I felt was a nice touch.
The plot of the movie is the same as Lester's Superman II. General Zod
and his goons escape the Phantom Zone. They arrive at Earth (or Planet
Houston as they call it) and quickly take over. And, where's Superman?
He made the mistake of giving up his powers to be with Lois Lane. So,
will Superman recover his powers on time to save Earth from Zod? You
will have to watch the film to find out.
Now, the question on everyone's mind is whether or not this version is
truly better than Lester's take. The answer is yes! Why? Because Lester
never really understood the material. Which is prove when you watch
Superman III. Donner, on the other hand, truly understood the material.
He understood that...YES...it's a comic book adaptation but it's still
an art form. As silly as Superman may seem he understands that there is
a wonderful story to tell. And, he understands that there is wonderful
characters to develop and have an audience understand and fall in love
with. When you watch this DVD that's what you'll see. A film directed
by a man in love with the material. Not a film by a man who did it for
the money. If you love Superman: The Movie then you'll love Richard
Donner's version of Superman II. The ONLY flaw of this version is that
it was never completed.
