While Clark Kent attempts to keep his secret identity hidden from Lois Lane, Superman is again in need when three bad guys from Krypton inflict their fury upon the Earth. By now the main characters are familiar, so this entertaining but slow-paced sequel can concentrate on action and humour, with intermittent silliness. Followed by Superman III.
