Description: The best movies based on comic books

average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
Spider-Man (2002)
  The best comic book movie ever! Great acting, writing and directing. More importantly, it completely captures the angst and emotion that makes Spider-Man such a compelling character.
X2: X-Men United (2003)
  Second only to Spider-Man, and really only because I'm more fond of Spidey comics. Bryan Singer does a near perfect job with this one, and Hugh Jackman was born to play Wolverine.
Batman Beyond - Return of the Joker (2000)
Not Rated
  The best Batman movie of any form. It is everything a Batman movie should be, without the tedium of Burton or the camp of Shumacher.
Superman II (Special Edition) (1980)
  Improves in many ways on the first, notably because of some the best villains ever in film, and the great emotional turmoil Clark goes through in the movie.
Superman: The Movie (1978)
  The archetype for them all. The first hour is much stronger than the second, but still a great origin movie.
The Crow (1994)
  Dark, brooding, and angsty. Exactly like J. O'Barr's comic. The late Brandon Lee give what may be the best performance of any movie on this list.
The Rocketeer (1991)
  Perfectly capture the spirit of Dave Stevens original book. Rousing action with a classic serial feel. One of the true unappreciated gems of the genre.
Blade II (2002)
  Fairly superficial, but with amazing action. Blade is without a doubt one of coolest characters in movies.
Timecop (1994)
  Changes quite a bit from the comic, but is still an excellent action movie, with a solid performance from Van Damme. Easily his best.
Hulk (2003)
  Yeah the ending blew, but I admire Ang Lee for trying to do something with this movie. It was an ambitious failure, but I give it much credit for trying to be a movie based on a comic, not a comic book movie.
