The Superman franchise proved hard to maintain for Alexander Salkind and company, so they sub-licensed film rights to Cannon Films for this sequel. The result was disastrous. Warner Bros. has given the DVD release the basic treatment, providing only a cast/crew section with filmographies and a theatrical trailer. The trailer, transferred anamorphically at 2.35:1, looks good despite a couple of scratches that flash by at blinding speed. The film has been anamorphically transferred from a new print, at the original aspect ratio of 2.35:1. Colors are generally good and well balanced, though contrast is on the low side. While grain is not generally a problem, the image does seem slightly soft throughout. Black levels are adequate, though shadows seem less detailed than they should be. Compression artifacts are absent, and there is next to no sign of edge enhancement. The Dolby Digital soundtrack provides a basic Dolby Surround mix, with music spread across the front stage. The film uses very little in the way of either directional or surround effects. While the dialogue is comprehensible and separated well, the soundtrack as a whole is mixed very muddily, with very little in the way of bass or highs -- in fact, it could easily pass for a 1980s TV soundtrack mix. The French soundtrack features a similarly muddy mix, though the dialogue is much cleaner. The French voice cast seems good, and the dubbing appears accurate. Subtitles are provided in English and French. The disc is single-sided and single layered, with a screen-printed image on the top face. The feature has 29 chapter stops. The disc is packaged in the standard Warner Bros. snap case.
