Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut




Trailer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68hRt0Pz7HI


I'm at a loss for words here. I'm a huge fan of Superman II, but this is my first time checking out The Richard Donner Cut. I've known about if for a few years but just never got around to checking it out for myself till now. There was no urgency for me to do so earlier because a lot of "Director Cuts" really aren't all that different from the original. So, that was my assumption about this one. Boy, was I ever wrong about that. This isn't even the same movie at all.

There are so many new scenes added and a whole lot of old scenes being completely cut from the original that it changes the movie to something else all together. The Donner Cut was good, but nowhere near what I feel for the original cut of Superman II, which I have high regard for. I don't know how to explain my reaction to watching this version. It just felt off....odd.....strange. Having said that, there were some genuine "holy  s h i t" moments for me when I saw new scenes that were added that I had never seen before that just tripped me out.

I think any fan of Superman II owes it to themselves to at least check this version out and make up their own mind. I definitely recommend this as a Rent. But I have to give a shout out to the original version and give it......

Superman II: The Original Cut (1980)



...which is just as good if not better than Superman: The Movie. For the above trailer, I couldn't find the Superman II: The Richard Donner version of it. For more on Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut. Read for yourself, it's very interesting.

You've seen the original, but it's nothing like that at all. Very different movie to say the least.

well it's been about 25 years since I've seen it on top of that.

I don't even remember it at all
