A relatively bare release of the second in the Superman series, with just a theatrical trailer, some cast and crew notes, and an extra language track to spice up this dual-layer, single-sided disc. The main menu includes music and has an autoplay function built in, but no animation. The movie has been given an anamorphic transfer at 2.35:1 from a fairly low-contrast print. No attempt was made to restore the material, and while the print seems to be without scratches and major flaws, it also appears a little washed out in places; most of the print is well balanced in terms of color, however, though with somewhat cool flesh tones. Blacks are nice and solid, with good detail. The print is fairly sharp throughout, with some moments of softness. The transfer also seems to be free of artifacting and edge enhancement. Bitrate hovers around the 5.5 Mbps range. The Dolby 2.0 Surround is solid work, with some nice effects, though not very much directional and atmospheric effort. High end seems a little limited, and it's a bit weak in the bass end (and there is some audible distortion in the lower mid-range in a few scenes), but overall it works well. The French-language track is mono and features a good voice cast with poor-quality matching; overall, this track is a bit harsh. Subtitles are available in English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish. The trailer looks good, but sounds terrible. The feature has 37 chapter stops, and the disc is packaged in a snapcase.
