Default Re: Batman Begins Best Origin Movie ever ?

Hm. You're right about Thor.

But I disagree with Spider-Man. Spider-Man was really no different than Superman: The Movie structurally. And, on top of that, it really didn't add anything new or inventive in terms of sub plotting or character progression. If anything, it was merely STM's paradigm simplified.

Although it has it's flaws, and still uses STM's plot stucture, BB at least did something new and partially inventive with his deep introspection and progression of Bruce Wayne as a character. I watched it recently, and the thing that really stood out to me was how, by the end of the film, you really could see Bruce transform into a different, more mature character altogether.

Having also watched Spider-Man recently, I didn't see character progression anywhere near that deep. Well, except for Harry. His character in general was probably the highlight of the film.

It's like a non-consecutive 24-hour dance party.
