I just can't see how it is "tighter" or in any way better written than ST.
I think its script was better structured, and raised fewer questions (such as Marcus' exact plan, or how Khan fits into all this, which we've been discussing here.)

the "he's hot" line.
Really ? That's a problem with the plot ?

In a superhero movie ? Get out !

This just serves to show that even technical aspects of the production are up to subjective interpretation. There's no objective way to judge a movie except by its short- and long-term success.

Let's not even get into the Lois fiasco. That was the plot contriving ways to fit her in at most points and that was it.
I can think of Khan and Carol Marcus as STID characters that were not entirely justified and forced into the story at some points.

It is easily the worst iteration of Superman I have seen on TV or screen.
I take it you haven't seen the one with Richard Pryor...
I actually like all the previous entries, even Returns. As for the "hot" line that was just icing on the cake so to speak... without the horrid tornado scene, Lois magically being where she needs to be for no reason other than the plot called for it, the whole final fight that completely removed me from the movie, all the way to THAT scene.. it was constant jarring sequences for me.

Also.. in Superman II he actually doesn't kill Zod. They cut the scene in the theatrical release but it was supposed to show that they were basically being confined back into the Phantom Zone.
