Not sure if it's the greatest but the origin parts of the film are the best thing about it - the last third of the movie not so much.

Nah, Sam Raimi's Spider-man is the greatest superhero origin story second only to Ironman.

Love both those movies too. They're certainly right up there - though I think BB just has lots more depth and complexity!

I'd be interested to know why you think their approach works better?

I would think Donner's Superman would be considered the greatest origin film considering it serves as the prototype for nearly all modern day superhero movies.
