The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Factual error: Towards the end of the film, Spiderman takes his web and uses it to connect to the different power conduits that Electro blew open, ties them together, and power the city back up. Electricity uses several different wires, and crossing them would cause things to blow up or short out. What should have happened when Gwen threw the switch was another power failure, instead of the city's power being restored.

Continuity mistake: During the battle with Green Goblin, when Gwen Stacy is falling through the clock tower, there are dozens of gears and other pieces of various sizes falling with her. However, when she lands, only a few small gears and pieces land alongside her - all the other debris that were falling have seemingly vanished. (02:01:20)

Suggested correction: That part of the scene is SO dark that it's really hard to tell; they do show some gears and pieces land after she does and there are some gears and pieces next to her when he walks to her. I wouldn't say there's none, but I'd say it does seem a disproportionately low amount considering how many giant gears were falling.

Given that even you admit in your correction that the number of gears seems disproportionately low (which it is - we only see a few small pieces landing when there were dozens and dozens of pieces in different sizes falling), I think amending the wording through a word-change is a better option than trying to correct the mistake itself. Because there is still a mistake here. Going to go ahead and do that after I post this response. (Might take a few days to change, though).

I absolutely agree and I'll delete the comment (s) when the mistake is reworded, since as we say, it is a valid mistake.

I submitted a word change yesterday, but given that it's not a mistake I submitted, it might take a few days to apply. :).

Continuity mistake: In the scene where after Peter gets his diploma and has a chat with Gwen, he is carrying a backpack on both shoulders. As the scene continues it switches to one shoulder then both several times. (00:15:50)

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene when Spider-Man is chasing a truck stealing OsCorp's plutonium vials, the truck, driven by Aleksei Sytsevich, crushes one of the police cars. The scene cuts to the left side of the truck crushing the police car. A moment later, it cuts to another angle. Here you can see the camera equipment on the left side of the truck. (00:08:20)

Other mistake: The main events of the film presumably take place in May, since we see Peter and Gwen graduate in the beginning. After Gwen's death, Peter is shown mourning through autumn and winter-like weather. However, near the end of the film, a news reporter says it's been only five months since Spider-Man disappeared. This would put the last fight with Rhino in October, and mean it snowed in the middle of summer.

Audio problem: During Electro and Spidey's final battle, after Spidey breaks the yellow pipe Electro says "Is that all you've got?" but his lips aren't moving. (01:51:15)

Continuity mistake: During the battle between Electro and Spidey, the chip on Electro's head swaps from being on the right side to being on the left. It is specially noticeable when Electro overloads.

Continuity mistake: When Peter and Harry chat by the river and Peter jumps to the other side of the railing, his left hand is either atop or below the railing, depending on the shot. (00:41:30)

Continuity mistake: When Gwen dies, the position of Spidey's left hand is inconsistent in almost every shot: Moving between her temple and cheek back and forth. Also, when he says "Stay with me" his right hand suddenly appears / disappears randomly around her head. (02:02:05)

Continuity mistake: Peter is in bed watching the closet with his dad's briefcase inside. He stands-up and his earplug falls out, but a shot later it's back in. (01:01:10)

Sacha Premium member

Continuity mistake: Peter opens the closet and throws a red jacket on top of his dad's briefcase, then closes the closet. Several shots later, when he opens it again the red jacket is gone. (01:00:05 - 01:01:05)

Continuity mistake: After Aunt May takes a picture of Gwen and Peter they're standing side by side. A shot later they're a meter and a half away from each other. (00:15:55)

Sacha Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Aunt May takes a picture of Gwen and Peter she places two left fingers on the camera. When the angle changes there's just one. (00:15:50)

Sacha Premium member

Continuity mistake: After saving a bus, when Spidey confronts Rhino the big puddle beside him disappears between shots. (00:13:45)

Sacha Premium member

Other mistake: After Electro disappears in the asylum then comes back, the underwear and the electrodes should be gone by then. (01:38:00)

Continuity mistake: While Rhino is getting webbed by Spidey on the street, the sun changes between shots. (00:13:55)

More quotes from The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Trivia: Spoiler alert! The way Gwen Stacy dies in the movie is almost exactly the way she does in the comics. The differences are that in the movie, she falls through a clock tower instead of off a bridge, and she hits her head on the ground as it snaps back, instead of just her head snapping back in mid air. She's even wearing the same outfit as she does in the comics.

More trivia for The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Question: The is something that I didn't understand in the movie. Spiderman killed Electro, which is something completely out of character. What was Marc Webb thinking?

Answer: Peter didn't set out to kill Electro, but he has to stop him somehow. Overloading him is pretty much all Peter has to work with in terms of stopping Electro's rampage. He doesn't know what effect it will have on his opponent, but he hopes that it will serve to stop him in his tracks, which it does. Had Peter set out with the specific intention of killing Max, that would indeed have been wildly out of character, but he didn't - he simply did what he had to do to stop him. It's unlikely that Max is actually dead anyway; it's well known that Sony intend to bring the Sinister Six into play in upcoming movies and Electro has been a key member of most incarnations of that team, making it highly likely that he'll be back.
