Superman II is a step down from the first movie and suffers from sluggish pacing and a few instances of unfunny comedy, but is nonetheless still an entertaining sequel with decent action and great performances, particularly from the late Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder, whose chemistry with each other really is the heart of the film.

Superman II is an 1980 Action Adventure Science Fiction movie where the Man of Steel fights Lex Luther as well as three despicable Kryptonian criminals-Zod, Ursa and Non. Though highly dated, there are still some fun moments in this classic and the effects are serviceable. Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder star.

Visible crew/equipment: In the town in Idaho when General Zod and his crew first visit, watch when the boy's father (elevated by Zod's finger) falls to the ground. You can see the pad under the dirt when he hits it.

More trivia for Superman II

Question: How did Superman get his powers back? I don't understand what that green crystal did.

Answer: In the theatrical cut, nobody really knows why the green crystal restored his powers. However if you watch the Richard Donner cut, it is explained that the green crystal is a communication device that helps Superman talks to the residual essence/spirit/ghost of his father Jor-El. Before he died, Jor-El gave the crystal to his son. Jor-El anticipated that Kal-El might give up his powers, and he also anticipated that Zod might eventually escape the Phantom Zone, so Jor-El lets his son absorb the leftover energy of his spirit, thus restoring all his Kryptonian powers.
