This is an almost perfect version of Spider-Man 3. It has all the best alterations of the Editor's Cut and corrects a few minor editing hiccups I had with that one. The only thing I didn't like was the butler scene being reinstated, as I thought getting completely rid of it was one of the best choices in the Editor's Cut. But aside from that, this is absolutely phenomenal.

Mr Dugnutt does it again, taking a deeply flawed film and giving it the necessary adjustments to make it . The editing, as always when it comes to his fanedits, is seamless and really enhances the best moments of this film while making the cringe-worthy ones disappear or be much more tolerable (the latter are the ones that can't be excised due to narrative coherence requirements).
This edit must have been a complicated challenge, since the movie is really problematic in many places (specially compared with its two predecesors) but Mr Dugnutt really manages to make it a definitely enjoyable watch.
Give it a try, you won't regret it.

Spider-Man 3 was always a film that was gonna be difficult to save. This edit does its best to keep the original film by adding deleted scenes from the Editor's cut of the film and reinserting Theatrical scenes that work better that in the EC.

Overall, the film is much more enjoyable, to a degree. The movie gets a bit more breathing room for the villams and characters, though, its still a film with flaws. Bobson does his best with it and makes it slightly more appealing.

I want to make this clear upfront. This review is NOT a reflection on Bobson's work or skill. The goal with this edit wasn't necessarily to create a good movie, so much as it was to create the longest possible cut of Spider-Man 3 without any scenes removed; akin to restoring a workprint, if you will, rather than fine-tuning or perfecting that workprint. In solely reviewing it from that standpoint, Bobson's restoration is technically flawless (and if they're reading this, well done).

Now a review of the film itself. In short, it's still terrible. If I'm being honest, increasing the runtime actually creates a new problem; in that not only do I not care what's going on, because of how unlikeable and/or underdeveloped some of the characters are, the pacing is now so slow I kept checking my watch to see when it would end. If you're interest in this edit is that the restored material potentially fixes or improves the film, manage your expectations.

I'll re-iterate, this edit constitutes a technical experiment in restoring an original film's workprint. While Bobson succeeds in doing that with flying colors, alas it does not constitute a good film.

So, this one. Yeah, I'm biased towards this movie. I grew up watching these Raimi spiderman movies, and i loved them. When I rewatched them, spiderman 3 definitely stood out, obviously because of its flaws. It was muddled by studio interferences and it didn't have all of Raimi's heart in it. But now with this cut, the mythical Bobson Dugnutt has seemingly restored this tonally right heart back in the movie. Well, the symbiote is still an unnecessary bug, but watch it for Spider-Man. Watch it for Dugnutt's vision. The choices for the screenplay effectively combing the theatrical and the editor's cut make this movie more coherent than ever. Also, you will know that this is the most complete version of this movie, full of all the original elements.
