Brilliant, but different..,
This review is from: Superman II / Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut (Three-Disc Special Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)
Having viewed this version of Superman 2, it is radically different. I viewed this film as a separate entity and I found in its own right if Richard Donner had completed this film back in the late 1970s the edit of scenes in the film would have been flawless, but in 2006 as Richard explains in the interview on this DVD, only his footage around 70 percent was filmed, therefore compared to the theatrical version the Donner Version on this DVD looks like huge chunks of the film are missing. Nevertheless the Marlon Brando scenes are spectacular. The fight scenes are a bit more brutal.
If you watch this 'Donner Version', watch it as an independant film, and you will enjoy it!
