Continuity mistake: When the Statue of Liberty tells Spidey "Nice outfit!" the people in the background are in different positions at the cut. (00:21:20)

Continuity mistake: When the kid dressed like Spidey slips through the barricade, look at his mother in close-up. To her left (right of the screen) there's a guy with white hair that breaks into a sound reminiscent of the famed Aro's Laugh. In the next shot, the guy is in a different position, to the right of the previous position, closer to the asian guy. (02:10:25)

Continuity mistake: Spider-Man leaves the "I love you" message to Gwen on Brooklyn Bridge, and on the tower of the bridge you can see the American flag. When the bridge is in the background later, the flag is gone. (01:45:15)

Continuity mistake: When Electro pierces the chest of the head of the security, the guy falls at a certain distance from the chair and table of the office, but when Harry saunters off to his body to grab his gun, the dead guy is right by the furniture. (01:40:05)

Revealing mistake: Max is having a delusional monologue at the mirror with his imaginary friend. You can notice that the 'gap' between his teeth is represented by a piece of black tape. (00:24:30)

Continuity mistake: When Peter pulls the boot of the costume under the cover to prevent May from seeing it, you can get a good look at the stack of books he's going to trip into a few seconds later. In fact, you can still see even as he trips, that the stack includes the famous leather bag from his father. He doesn't knock it to the floor when he trips, but the next shot just shows it on the floor anyway. (00:23:25)

Continuity mistake: The little bullies are pushing the wind turbine kid against the fence; they literally have their fingers inside the links; they look up and notice Spidey, barely move very slowly, but a moment later they are much further back in the alley giving him a solid few meters of space where he lands. (00:20:35)

Continuity mistake: Coming out of the Chinese restaurant, Emma Stone is closing her coat, and you can see in the view from behind that she even completes the movements to properly tie the belt. The scene continues, the belt is perfectly fitting and closed, but the last shot of the scene shows Gwen Stacy in front of the door with the coat open and the belt loose. (00:17:35)

Continuity mistake: When Peter is kissing Gwen by the podium, Garfield's right hand is on Emma Stone's cheek, but in the reverse angle his hand is on the middle of her back. (00:14:35)

Continuity mistake: The very first time we see Max Dillon, he's carrying literal blueprints around. He mumbles "There's more room on the sidewalk"; notice behind him just after he says "Excuse me", a man with white hair and beard, smartly dressed with a handkerchief in his breast pocket. The shot changes and the same extra is coming from the opposite direction in front of Jamie Foxx. (00:09:15)

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, Richard Parker hears his son Peter calling his name, and he rushes to check on him, opening the door to his study who has been ransacked by someone. That's the same scene as the first movie, only it is absolutely not the same; not only the position of the items in the room is different (and so also the lighting, since lamps were amongst those objects) but Campbell Scott opens the door using both hands instead of just his left (check out the same timecode of the first movie). (00:02:10)

Revealing mistake: During the "Gone Gone Gone" montage where Peter recaps the parents subplot by plastering his room with various junk about them, he sticks a particular newspaper clipping using tape. The article is an obvious movie prop fake; look at the right of the photo and you can see the paragraph begins with not even a proper sentence; "Cell regeneration, and long time partner and friend to Norman Osborn, went missing", which is the copy and paste from the beginning of the article save the first line. Copy-paste can also easily be spotted from the leftmost to the rightmost column. (01:01:50)

Continuity mistake: When Peter looks at Gwen's mementos, the photo he had in hand and the USB key both change position between shots. (02:07:50)

Continuity mistake: Peter is absent-mindedly listening to the news while Aunt May is putting away some objects. There's a cut while the speaker says "return of the web-slinger" and May who just had put down some letters is suddenly lifting a book. (02:06:25)

Continuity mistake: The one kid Spidey helped is looking at the window during the news story about Rhino breaking out of prison. He leans forward, but he's in a different position between shots, and his wind turbine is powered up only in the last shot even if it was still two shots before. (02:06:15)

Revealing mistake: As he holds the dead Gwen in his arms, Peter says "Stay with me, stay with me" two times, twice, and then a fifth time "You stay with me." Between the two repetitions, you can see Emma Stone's long eyelashes twitch. (02:02:30)

Continuity mistake: In the final battle, Spidey is going hand-to-hand with Goblin while Gwen is still dangling. At one point he wraps his web around Goblin's neck; the two loops of web change distance depending on the camera angle. (02:00:10)

Continuity mistake: When the sickly kid CEO overpowers the two security guards, he does so with the one on the right that mysteriously in one shot is facing him and in the next he's facing the nearby desk, away from him. (01:33:35)

Audio problem: When Harry listens to the recording of Electro's threats to Dr. Ashley Kafka, the sentence is conveniently edited for brevity, omitting part of the original sentence ("A world without mercy"). (01:15:25 - 01:28:40)

Peter Parker: Everyday I wake up knowing that no matter how many lives I protect, no matter how many people call me a hero, someone even more powerful could change everything.

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.
