If X-men helped bring Superhero movies back, Spider-man made them take off. Spider-man was one of the first times we saw a comic book really come to life, bright colors, the costume was, very close.
The movie was entertaining and exciting and felt like the classic comic book in some instances. Does it stand up 14 years later. Some of the movie does for sure. It holds up better than the X-men movies for sure. I watched the movie the other day and it wasn’t as entertaining, but like I said it was still exciting.
