Cool Videos: This video shows 53 things wrong with The Amazing Spider-man in under 2 minutes

Dec. 12, 2012by:

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is a very divisive movie. Some love it, others hate it. I fall somewhere in the middle. It definitely has quite a few flaws, many of which are contained in this video.

In what I hope is a new series of videos, CinemaSins runs a tally of the logical flaws, weird plot devices, and just plain stupid things in movies. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN clocks in with a whopping 53 flaws. Take a look and see if you agree.

Obviously lack of logic does not equal bad box office, but hopefully Marc Webb will review these before they start filming THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. If anything, I ask that Peter Parker not reveal his identity to anyone for the entire film. That was my biggest issue with the first movie.

Most of us who spend a good amount of time online have become nitpickers with pretty much every form of entertainment. I fully endorse anyone to disagree with me on this site for my opinions (especially the unpopular ones), but that is what makes the Internet so great. We can all have our own opinions and if someone disagrees, let them prove their case. I would like to hear from anyone who thinks these 53 issues are not valid.

Extra Tidbit: I would like to see these guys tackle THE AVENGERS next.

Thank you, Cinemasins. I do not mind when anyone points-out The Amazing Spider-Man's flaws. We fans deserved a better movie.

sometimes i fear that this Amazing spiderman series will turn into the new Twilight series,with the high school romance and the lead couple dating in real life..its not like i hated this film but this new spidey isnt as good and nerdy as the old spidey,and many more.and if these guys make a video abt TDKR,i think it will be longer than the movie

Most of these things are TV tropes, so it's a bit weird to call it "things that are wrong".

Meh. Nitpicks. Stuff like "crazy whipping hose happens to lands in his hand" are ridiculous - he's Spider-Man. It didn't "accidentally" do anything. The hose was whipping around, and he has spider-sense and super-reflexes. Catching it wouldn't be hard at all. The guy can dodge bullets.
The hologram stuff is also dumb: they hit it because it "doesn't exist." It's semi sci-fi, like all comic book movies. Iron Man has holograms and impossible tech, they don't hit it for that. Avengers had a

Mostly dumb.

Most of these are small things that a lot of movies do. I can however, understand Bing....

forgot to add that Spidey, at the end, is slipping off a building he could previously stick to, requiring the Lizard to save him.

Lame nitpicks for the most part.

Sure the "Property of Peter Parker" scene dropped my enjoyment of the film a few notches, but aside of the Bing product placement these are all just whinny nitpicks.

Hehe, cool video. But seriously, the movie didn't really suck, but it wasn't really good either. I think it was the most "meh" movie of the year. Didn't completely hate it, but if I never saw it again I wouldn't really care either.

This movie sucked, plain and simple.

Thank you, but seriously, it was so stupid and without comparing to any other superhero movie it just felt wrong. Every answer and solution falls into Peters lap. The ending was horrible, the Lizard was lame and I did not know that was C Thomas Howell...

I also think that videos like this are not really funny They are just ment to spoil the joy of movies. Even though Amazing Spiderman is not perfect, it's not that bad.

I happen to think Amazing Spider-Man was pure dogshit and even I groaned at this video. There's so much more that is actually wrong with this movie than many of the plot contrivances and other stuff these guys pointed out.

That was a waste of time. Honest trailers does this 1 million times better and its actually rather funny. This was dumb. The honest trailer for this very movie was hilarious, as well as the one for The Dark Knight Rises, which happened to have just as many stupid, silly, non-sensical moments, but still managed to be a terrifically entertaining movie.

Um... okay. But at least 40% of those are not really "mistakes". Using Bing is neither a continuity error nor a plot contrivance, and they counted it like 4 times. Would have preferred to see a video like this were they take the idea seriously.

The whole point was to be stupid, this isn't meant to be taken seriously. But if anyone uses Bing, they should just lose all computer access forever...
