You'll believe a man can fly! This edit earns a place in the line-up of Superman movies, replacing much of III and all of IV.
Comparing ADigitalMan's Redeemed to Dangermouse (for III), Batson's Quest for Cash (for IV) and the originals, this edit offers the most enjoyment and least cringing. Spoiler alert:
- Linking Evil Superman to Nuclear Man is brilliant. It allows the stories to be merged and the transition is excellent.
- Do I miss Richard Pryor? Yes, but his story was separate from Superman's until the final battle. Leaving in any Pryor would have required leaving in that Evil Robot battle, including Vaughn as not-actually-smart and unconvincing villain.
The DVD quality is acceptable. A blu-ray remake of this would be quite awesome.
