Superman II

 (2006)

Superman II Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Superman flagship director Richard Donner presents this special cut of the 1980 sequel starring Christopher Reeve as the Man of Steel, who's locked in a battle to save Earth from three evil outcasts of planet Krypton. Donner shot footage for Superman II concurrently with the first blockbuster, but director Richard Lester ultimately completed the project. This re-edited version features Donner's original vision, including restored deleted scenes.

For more about Superman II and the Superman II Blu-ray release, see Superman II Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Gene Hackman, Christopher Reeve, Marlon Brando, Ned Beatty, Jackie Cooper, Sarah Douglas
Director: Richard Donner

Superman II Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The video quality is uneven because scenes come from different sources. Much of the footage looks vibrant and defined, but the test screen sequences Donner used do not clean up so nicely. Grain and noise are heavier, but the sequences are clear enough to see that Clark Kent's hair looks different. Other inconcistencies in the footage are visible. Overall, though, the picture is similar to that of Superman: The Movie. During some sequences, the 1080p resolution reveals extraordinary detail and good depth. During others, the definition is somewhat lacking.

The good scenes are best exemplified by lifelike contrast and rich color tones. Watch the early scenes in the offices of the Daily Planet. While there are some signs of digital noise reduction, skin tones and other colors are vibrant and definition is very good. Compare this to other scenes like some of the screen tests Donner used to flesh out the story and the video becomes noticeably more problematic. First, more noise is visible, but that isn't a problem per se. The relative lack of detail is apparent. The scenes in Superman's fortress in the North Pole lack the problems with the screen test sequences, but are not as fully resolved as the Daily Planet scenes, appearing a touch washed-out by comparison. Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut is therefore a hodge- podge of scenes of varying picture quality, from quite good to quite poor. Overall, unfortunately, it does not stand up to comparison with most Blu-ray releases.


Superman II Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The audio is more consistently impressive than the video. The Dolby Digital 5.1 track was digital processed from the original film's audio and extensively reengineered. The result is a modest 384 kbps. Dialogue, effects and music each sound vibrant and relatively detailed for DD, though not rising near the reference quality of the higher bit rate codecs; treble lacks the extension and bass lacks the full dynamic punch associated with the best BDs. But imaging is done right. The surrounds and LFE are engaged at all the right times.

Listen to the gunfire and sound effects as the trio of criminals from Krypton first demonstrate their power in small-town America. Explosions and small arms fire sound convincing, if not deep in the soundstage. The surround field accurately places most sounds in the three front speakers and thankfully avoids the "ping-pong" stereophonic effect. The orchestral score also also has good impact, considering its lossy, DD encode. Massed strings sort of congeal into a pleasant, euphonic midrange experience that cannot be described as high resolution, but it is not as thin as most DD orchestral scores.
