Finally got a look at this last night on HD-DVD. A most excellent "alternate" version of the film. Still some plot holes but slightly better IMHO than the theatrical cut. I never really liked the silly sight gags in Lester's version.

If you are a fan of the Superman movie series, pick this one up.

A couple of nice things:

1. No dumb terrorist attack in Paris, France at the start of the movie.

2. We finally get to see how Superman gets his powers back.

3. Marlon Brando is back!

4. A rather excellent way Lois Lane exposes Clark Kent as Superman.

5. New opening credit sequence. Very nice!

6. Story ties in nicely with the first movie and even Superman Returns regarding the father and son thing.

Now the bad:

1. Movie flows a little differently and takes some getting use to.

2. The ending wasn't too great because Superman turns back time again and then goes back to beat up the bad guy in the restaurant who shouldn't even remember him.

3. Screen test footage used when Lois exposes Clark as Superman. I guess it is all they had.

4. Recycled John Williams score from Superman I. Wish there was some new stuff.
