A reboot of Sam Raimi’s 2002-07 Spider-Man trilogy, Peter Parker must be even more amazing if he hopes to stop Dr. Curt Connors from releasing a city-wide lizard mutagen. Though I suspect that the making of this film was to cash in on the 3D craze, this update of the franchise is entertaining, comedic and better than the original, though the high school kids still look like they are ready to graduate from college (Klaus Ming May 2016).
