Audio problem: As Dr. Ratha says to Dr. Connors, "The clock is ticking, Dr. Connors", his lips do not match what he says and are still moving shortly after he finishes speaking.


Continuity mistake: When Peter asks Flash to stop bullying the other student in the outdoor eating area, right before Flash punches Peter, Peter is carrying his camera on a strap on his right shoulder.

Continuity mistake: At the deli, when the cops have shot down the Lizard, watch the back part of the robe, where the bag strap is: It swaps from a big open hole, to being split in two big sizes, to split in a big and a small size hole; all in a matter of frames, no sense whatsoever.

More trivia for The Amazing Spider-Man

Question: Why did Uncle Ben chastise Peter for standing up to Flash? Considering that Flash constantly bullied Peter, shouldn't Ben have been pleased that Peter finally stood up for himself?

Answer: If you're talking about after the dunk scene, Ben didn't see it as Peter standing up for himself. Instead, he says Peter humiliated Flash and then finds out he's the same one that punched Peter earlier. So in Ben's mind, this was retaliation or retribution, which is not OK.
