"Superman II" reminds me of "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" and "The Dark Knight". Those two movies were movies that elevated the original in many ways. "Superman II" did the same. Many say that "Superman: The Movie" was better. I disagree." Superman II" had more emotion. Also, the movie's running time was perfect. "Superman: The Movie" was about a half hour too long. This movie had better pacing. In my opinion, the movie had better acting. The characters are better developed. Many parts of "Superman: The Movie" had some boring parts. This movie had about one or two. "Superman II" had a better plot, characters, and screenplay. I really like this movie and it is one of my favorite superhero movies of all time. There are some technical flaws, but I still recommend checking out "Superman II".
