Richard Lester United States, 1980

Jeremy Ashlyn's rating of the film Superman II

After seeing the Richard Donner cut.. In all honesty, Donner shot this poorly from the outset. Superman, a COMEDY. Really.. Well, in that case, it makes sense to bring in a comedy director to save the production. Enter Richard Lester. I don't blame Mario Puzo. Something very transgressive and interesting could have been wrung from this script.
