all this on 1 Blu-ray Disc
so if you want all the special features plus the 2 versions of the film which look beautiful in High Definition
both film versions have been given the exact same HD transfer in 2:40:1 ratio the quality looks amazing very nice & clear picture quality
much better than the old dvd version, plus the sound has been boosted up to 5.1 master mix
time to throw out the old 2 disc dvd version
and get the 2012 reissue, not the old 2008 version
5 stars for this new 2012 reissue
This movie is identical to Spider-Man 2, except for 8 added minutes of content, and possibly some rearrangement of other minutes (though I don't remember any of that happening). Knowing other "director's cuts" that I have watched (zealously at times), there may have been some content in the earlier movie that was not in the second. For this reason, I generally purchase every version of a movie, usually two if there is a director's cut, or in the case of Christopher Reeve's Superman, three versions (theatrical, two-night television event (Lester's Cut), and Donner's Director's Cut (2006).
I highly recommend that you purchase both Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 2.1 (and of course, the other movies that "Spider-Man" swung his web for.
UPDATE: This disc also includes Spiderman 2.1, which adds 8 minutes of footage not found in the original theatrical release. I watched it and found the extra minutes completely unnecessary. The elevator scene, so funny in the original release, becomes tiresome and stupid and about 4 times longer than it needed to be. Other than that, the original release is excellent.
We've all seen superhero film sequels that fell flat or outright bombed (i.e. Batman and Robin, Superman IV.) This film did no such thing. It continued an interesting story, introducing new characters and plots while building on what the first film had left us with. It also gave me my favorite Spider-Man villain ever: Dr. Otto Octavius / Doctor Octopus, played by Alfred Molina, whose performance can be called nothing short of "humanizing" for this character. Seriously, this incarnation of Dr. Otto Octavius is Spider-Man's equivalent of Mr. Freeze, but with a bit more humor, and that makes him so great to watch over and over again. It was also nice that this film didn't go the way of other superhero sequels by trying to cram more villains into its plot. Sure, Harry Osborn was rather evil, but he's been around in the previous film, so his story ark was merely continuing rather than just beginning. This film also did something I can't recall any other superhero film doing...it showed us Peter Parker's struggles with keeping up with his double life. Sure, there have been films, including this movie's predecessor, that showed such problems to a certain extent, but here, we truely can see and identify with his trials and sacrifices, and that only adds to his character and the plot. We surely have Toby McGuire's acting to thank for that as well as the great writing. I never really got the part about him just losing his powers and then getting them back, but otherwise, I loved this film. Mary Jane Watson was unfortunetly just as bland as in the previous film, taking the role of the female lead in superhero films back to the days before Margot Kidder played Lois Lane in the first Superman film. Nevertheless, I feel quite comfortable labeling Spider-Man 2 as my favorite in this series...I'd give it six stars if I could. Enjoy.
When I bought this in mid July 2017 the Amazon description promised a blu ray with a UV code for a copy in the cloud. Turns out that offer expired in 2014. So all I have is the blu, and I won't complain for $5. But I can't watch it online, on the of, on vacation etc. big disappointment there. Blu ray itself looks and sounds great.
