This is still one of the greatest superhero films of all time. Sam Raimi’s passion for the source material is evident in his work, as we see this film focus so heavily upon the characters. Of course there’s action and excitement as we would expect from a superhero movie, however for me the best element was the writing. In between the action sequences there’s a beating heart and intelligent brain that explore complex issues that really aid the characterisation of Peter Parker. This was three dimensional, well executed filmmaking whose heart and brain are placed firmly in the right place.
