Brief Synopsis:
The Justice League: Ultimate Edition, aims to reinsert as much deleted footage from trailers, TV spots, promo material, behind the scenes featurettes, VFX Reels, Blu-Ray deleted scenes and a few fanedits to create the longest possible version of the Theatrical Cut.
It's not anything too spectacularly different, but it's four minutes longer with almost 70 alternate, deleted, extended and new shots and scenes added to the running time. Everything has been painstakingly colour matched with the theatrical footage and rescored with the OST with added SFX where needed to fill gaps.
This isn't any fancy Snyder Cut, but more of the movie you saw in cinemas with a few extra moments sprinkled throughout.
I wanted to create a longer version of the theatrical cut of the film as there is so much footage to play with and edit in. I didn't hate the theatrical cut, but it's very non-resonant. So I felt I needed to add some mayo to this dull sandwich, not making the sandwich superior at all but just making it a bit more substantial.

Editing Details:
There are about 70 new bits and pieces scattered throughout the film. Some less than a second and just a few frames,with the longest being a minute long. They've all been colour corrected to match the film and had score or SFX added to make it all cohesive. DrDre's ColourMatch is a godsend for this kind of thing.

It's not a revolutionary take on the movie, but it even the smallest additions actually do help it out. The extra scenes, the longer shots, and slight alternate cuts were skilfully integrated and do enhance the experience by giving the movie more breathing room. It's the theatrical cut, but slightly better, take it or leave it.

Most of the edit is sound, but there were two things I noticed on my download: 1) as the scene with Martha at the planet ends, there's a repeat shot of her nodding before we get to Cyborg. I think that was meant to set up an audio transition, but a slightly more pressing issue is that 2) right before we get to the first scene with the Russian Family there is a very brief frame of Aquaman's face there. Otherwise I did enjoy this one.

An edit that has been in the works for two years, Bobson's JL Ultimate Edition sought to piece together the most complete version of the Frankenstein's monster that was the divisive theatrical cut of the movie. Did he succeed? Very much so. Without rocking the boat with experimental cuts or unique narrative alterations that a lot of JL edits undertake, Bobson's edit is a simplistic arrangement that focuses on restoration, adding, not subtracting. Even the most microscopic angles are successfully reintegrated into the film.

With the release of the Snyder Cut only a matter of months away, it will arguably become the 'Ultimate Edition', had this edit been delayed further, then it might have needed a re-title to the 'Ultimate Theatrical Edition', for now until the advent of the much anticipated directors vision, it's title holds true..this is the JL movie as you knew it, warts and all, and much more.
