The problem is that the film is too unwieldy to maintain any consistency of humor or tone. Whenever the relationships start to develop, the film has tobreak away for a stunt, leaving you feeling depressed and depleted.

What seems to have been lost is the straightforward heroic exuberance of the original film, despite Reeve's gallant and endearing efforts.

It's an entertaining and fun follow-up that definitely made good on the promise of evil doers who'd challenge the man of steel for all he's worth.

On some levels soars above its predecessor with a more personal story; credible, menacing villains and an impeccable cast.

As good a matinee movie as could be imagined.

A solid, classy, cannily constructed piece of entertainment which gets down to action almost immediately.
January 2, 2007
The spectacular battle scenes, the tenderly poignant love story, and the still-amusing work by Hackman make its broad transgressions quite forgivable.

A definitive look at the strange, impossible love triangle of Clark Kent, Lois Lane and Superman… not perfect, but in the annals of comic-book movies it remains an indispensable touchstone.
