We start in the first minutes of the film, when Peter parker arrives at his workplace, we can see that a police officer is in the business, when his boss mr. Aziz tells him that he is late, we can see the police eating inside the premises.

But when the shot changes to a shot from the inside, the police officer totally disappears, it seems that he finished his pizza and traveled to another parallel universe.

An error of this film, which in the novel and in the script if they are explained, is when doctor octavius carries out the fusion process, when he does it creates a kind of little sun, the brightness of this is so intense that it is not possible by any means to see it directly, for this octavius has to use special glasses otherwise the fusion would burn his retinas and blind him.
So far well explained, but in the film no one explains why the rest of the people are not wearing glasses, when they saw the fusion directly, everyone would have been blind, except perhaps Peter Parker.

Peter Parker realizes that he no longer needs his glasses, as his powers have returned, so he drops his glasses and enters Fury Mode. But did you realize what happened?
It was a moment of chaos, everyone was running like crazy here and there, however when the slow motion shot of the glasses falling to the floor is made, we can see that people walk calmly down the street, there is no chaos or panic, but a few seconds ago everyone was running in terror, maybe this scene with the glasses was some alternate version, which in the end was used for the movie, but it didn’t end up fitting with the situation that was happening at the time.

The CGI is too noticeable in those scenes, even the mary jane CGI gives the impression of being rendered graphics of the quality of the playstation 2.
