Picks up where the first film left off, with the arrival of three villains from Superman's home planet. General Zod, Nom and Ursa were exiled to the Phantom Zone, by Jor-el and thus are looking for revenge against his son who is Earth's hero Superman. However, the Man of Steel after proclaiming his love for fellow reporter Lois Lane has given up his powers to be with her. He gets into a fight at a truck stop where he is beaten to a pulp. Realizing that the only way to save Earth, is to regain his powers, Clark returns to the Fortress, and in fact becomes Super once again. The movie's third act is a duel to the death in the city of Metropolis. The villains accompanied by the ever diabolical Lex Luthor take Lois and lead Superman to the Fortress, where he ultimately defeats the three villians and sends Luthor back to prison. Action wise it's even better than the first movie.

Arguably the best of the Reeve Superman movies!
