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 many gears and other pieces falling with her. None of these are there when she and Spidey are at the bottom.

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)
