Spiderman is a decent action film. Though I never was a Spiderman fan, I thought that this first film was fairly good considering that the film was made for a teenage audience. When the film first came out, I thought it was really enjoyable, but as the years past, the film has become slightly dated I find. For what it is, Spiderman is a decent action film that is entertaining, but it's not the superhero film everyone raves it to be. I thought that some parts were fairly silly, and the film lacked the real power of other superhero films such as both of Christopher Nolan's Batman Films and the first two X-Men films. Though the film doesn't define its audience specifically, like most superhero films. Spiderman was made for a younger audience and it shows. There's a lot of fun moments to be had watching this film. But I felt it lacked the seriousness of other superhero films, which I thought was disappointing. For me, Spiderman is one of the weaker films that Sam Raimi has helmed, but this isn't as bad as the sequels. One thing that I thought was one of the weaker aspects of the film is the fact that they made the Peter Parker character without any sense of conflict. I felt that the reason he started fighting crime, was almost silly, not believable enough. I can say that Spiderman is the least awful of the three, entertaining, but flawed. But as a superhero film, it doesn't belong alongside greats such as The Dark Knight or X2. Where the film lacks the most is the paper thin story, and it has minimal development in that regard. This could have been a terrific superhero film, but it ends up being a decent one at best. A shame cause the Spiderman character is quite intriguing.
