Eh, I could tell watching it though that there was a Donner influence cracking through - if not Jor-El's whole motivational "You Can Serve A Greater Purpose" shpiel (not to mention him wearing the S-shield again a la Brando), then the Obligatory Nefarious Plan Of The Villain was certainly familiar enough: two WMDs sent off in opposite directions to reshape the world, and Superman can only go after one of them.
