With Spider-man 2.2 Bobson takes an already superior cut of a film but restores the little from the theatrical cut that wasn't broken to begin with, which for most is the shorter exchange in the elevator. When watching the retail copy, I used to have to decide which version I was in the mood for. This cut eliminates that need.

If I have one minor detail I don't like from 2.1 it's the sequence in the train fight where Spider-man gets hit by a train travelling in the opposite direction, he just shrugs it off and continues swinging, that part always seemed a bit too cartoony for me, but I don't see any other complaints, and maybe I shouldn't be looking for plausibility in a film that during many other moments doesn't obey the rules of physics either.

Anyway as I said, this is the perfect compromise between the two cuts so if you are a fan of the Raimi trilogy, it's a must have for your collection.

A minimal review for a minimal edit: Bobson improves the film. This edit is better than either 2.0 or 2.1.

But seriously, the official Spider-Man 2.1 improved on the theatrical 2.0 version. Except in the elevator scene, which became oddly prominent with its extended runtime. The changed dialog would fit a Director's Commentary (how can we capitalize on Spidey's fame), but was out of place inside the story. This is fixed seamlessly.
Bobson also improves on / corrects a minor but fun Mr Aziz moment.
To elevate this fanedit beyond the two in-movie improvements, we further get lots of extras.

Is it possible to make an even better edit of this film? Probably (I'm looking at you, lame end-credits pop song), but none exists. So until Bobson treats us to version 2.4, this is your go-to edition of Spiderman 2.

A highly enjoyable extended cut of Spider-man 2, which shows that choosing which scenes to extend and when to keep the theatrical version is a real art.
Bobson's cut definitely improves both the theatrical cut and 2.1, and as always does it in a technically stunning way - seamless cuts, both audio and video are perfect.
There were no noticeable changes to the narrative, but I was not expecting any. I liked the theatrical cut, and the only thing that bother me now is that most women are depicted as helpless throughout most of the film. Maybe a slight trimming in version 2.3? :)

This was well done. The added material was seamless and the AV quality was just fine!
