Corrected entry: When in the Statue of Liberty, Magneto magnetizes the bars to keep Wolverines hands pointed at himself and hang him against the wall. Wolverine decides to stab himself, which makes him fall. Maybe I'm wrong, but why would stabbing himself make the magnetism wear off so he can fall?mOnKeYmAn33
Corrected entry: It is established that the X-Men's base of operation including Cerebro are in underground levels. In this scene, you see Bobby walking with two friends talking about Rogue missing. Mystique (as Bobby also) walks out of the round elevator as the real Bobby walks past. They are on the main ground floor. The next shot, Mystique as Bobby is in the underground level standing in front of the door to Cerebro. Why is she in the elevator in the first place that she'd exit on the ground level, and why would she exit at the ground level if she just has to go back in to go down to the basement to access Cerebro?
Corrected entry: Near the end, Cyclops tells Storm to "fry" Magneto. Magneto then answers, "..lightning bolt in a small copper space..." meaning that everyone would be "fried". This is total baloney, as the bolt would hit Magneto directly, then discharge into the floor of the statue and dissipate in energy through the whole statue. Magneto would receive a direct hit and as the main conductor and would be instantly killed. The others would also be shocked, but to a substantially lesser degree and certainly not life-threatening. However, Magneto seems to either not know this, or more likely is lying with the (correct) assumption that the others don't know that either.
Corrected entry: Xavier might not want to kill Magneto outside the train station, but he could easily have used Sabertooth to knock his protective helmet off or slam him into a wall and knock him unconscious. If he had done this immediately (before Magneto pointed everyone's guns back at them, after which it was obviously too risky) he could have captured Magneto then and there. Granted, not very good for the film, but it still should have occurred to him.Shay
Corrected entry: In the scene just before Rogue asks Wolverine if it hurts him when his metal claws come out, Wolverine takes a drag on his cigar which is in his right hand. The camera angle changes and he places his right hand on the steering wheel. If you look closely you can see that his cigar has magically vanished from his hand.
Corrected entry: In the beach scene when senator Kelly is watching the news at the hot dog stand, we can see a big chain behind it; the next shot shows Kelly taking some clothes than were hanging on the chain; those clothes were not there in the previous shot.
Corrected entry: In the scene after Sabertooth attacks Logan in the car, he (Sabertooth) confronts Magneto. It then shows Magneto sitting down and using his powers to take Logan's necklace from Sabertooth, but when he lifts his arm up, there is no number on it from the concentration camp. When in the very next shot, it shows the number back on his arm.
Corrected entry: In the scene right after Logan hits the hood of the truck, and Sabretooth is distracted by something, you can see Storm's hair is pulled back in a pony tail (you can also see it when she gives Rogue a hand out of the truck). But when they are still standing out in the open, the camera view switches behind them, and her hair is blown forward around her face. Then it is back in a pony tail.
Corrected entry: When Mystique disguised as Bobby is telling Rogue that the professor is mad at her and to leave (after the Wolverine incident) you can see his breath meaning it was cold, but whenever it's a shot of Rogue, there's no breath. Has it warmed up or something. Some people say it's because he's Iceman, but following that thought, it's actually Mystique.
Corrected entry: When the X-men arrive at the statue of Liberty the police helicopter, which was hovering in the area, has disappeared leaving 200 world leaders without protection from the air. Meanwhile all the commotion is about to start there. Also there are no guards in the statue, which again is odd, because it would be THE spot for a sniper to shoot any of the worldleaders, which for some reason hold their summit in the open air nearby.
Corrected entry: In the scene in the Statue of Liberty where Wolverine shoots his claws through his chest to escape, how does this help? His claws are extremely sharp, as is shown later in the film when he cuts off a part of the statue that is made of solid metal. His claws should simply perforate the metal, instead of helping release him.
Corrected entry: Much is made of Magneto's helmet which stops Professor X using Cerebro to find him. However, he can control Sabretooth and Toad (at the train station) and presumably knew that Sabretooth was about to attack Wolvie and Rogue. So why couldn't he find Magneto's base by tracking one of his followers? Even if the base is shielded, he could still follow them until they disappeared, and it would be pretty simple to work out where the base was after that...
Corrected entry: When Wolverine is falling down the side of the Statue of Liberty during his fight with Sabertooth (again), and he impales his claws into the side of the structure, they show up on the other side between Jean and Cyclops' faces vertically. However, it looks as though he put them in the structure horizontally when shown from the outside.
Corrected entry: During the scene with Rogue in her bedroom describing her trip through Canada to Alaska, she says that she will stop at Niagara Falls on the way. Niagara Falls is located on the east side of North America on the border of Canada and New York state. On her map of North America, she has a Niagara Falls postcard tacked onto the West side of the country.
Corrected entry: Senator Kelly makes a phone call while he's in the helicopter, unaware that Guyrich is really Mystique. Before she transforms to her normal form, Kelly hands her (still in the form of Guyrich) his phone, which is placed in a pocket. Mystique transforms and... the phone is gone. Where would it go?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Storm and Cyclops go to find Rogue at the train station, you can see that it's still daylight. When Toad uses his tongue to steal Cyclops' visor, the optic blast shoots through the roof of the station, as seen from the outside, though when you see it from the outside, it is night. The rest of the scene is still day-time.
Corrected entry: At then end of the movie, Cyclops is watching Senator Kelly on the news, only to find out that it's really Mystique. He sees this because Kelly's eyes flash yellow, like Mystique's. Now, he saw this on national television. If Cyclops noticed this, then certainly anybody else watching would have also noticed that the Senator's eyes flashed yellow. And for anyone who says that it could be explained via 'colour distortion,' certainly the reporters who were actually there would have seen his eyes change color, even for a split second.DenizenZERO
Corrected entry: Credit to the film makers for giving Wolverine a Canadian Dog Tag to wear (as opposed to the multiple tags as worn by U.S. soldiers). Unfortunately, Wolverine is wearing the bottom half of a broken Canadian Dog Tag which has been engraved upside down. A Canadian dog tag is one piece with two halves designed to be broken in half on a horizontal score across its centre. The top half has two holes (one in each corner) for the chain to pass through and remains with a deceased soldier. The bottom half, which is not attached to a chain, although it has a long slot centred at the bottom, is returned for registration. Wolverine wears the bottom half of a Canadian Dog tag, the half which would be removed or lost when the tag is broken (this is easily identified by the long slot at the bottom, which the way he wears it is at the top where he has the chain passing through it). Even if Wolverine had somehow lost the top of his dog tag and kept the bottom, the name engraved would be upside down when he has it hanging from the bottom slot. Also, a Canadian dog tag is not worn on a small chain hanging from the neck chain - they hang directly from the neck chain. The dog tag should also say CDN FORCES CDN under his name (if it was printed right side up in the first place). Another interesting bit of trivia about this...his Dog Tag has a Social Insurance Number as opposed to a Service Number - which indicates he served prior to the re - introduction of service numbers in 1991. Also, since his Social Insurance Number begins with the number 4, we know he was born in the province of Ontario. Good effort on detail, if not 100% right on all counts.
Corrected entry: Magneto's entire plan revolves around placing the Mutation Device in the torch of the Statue of Liberty, even going as far as to have Toad fix up a replica of the torch bottom. Yet when they get to Liberty Island, they leave the real bottom of the torch on the ground in plain sight, and the false bottom that Toad painted is very off-color. After such a cunning plan, they made such foolish and obvious mistakes?
Corrected entry: In the scene where the X-Men are trapped inside the Statue of Liberty, Wolverine slides down the outside and stabs his claws right through the wall to stop himself falling, and they go in between Jean Grey and Cyclops' faces, which you see from the inside. In the next shot, you see Wolverine on the outside and he stabs his claws through again, to start climbing back up. If you watch where his hand goes, surely he would have stabbed Jean Grey in the head!
Corrected entry: In the third scene of the movie, Dr. Jean Grey is speaking before the Senate. Senator Kelly interrupts her by calling her Miss Grey. Later on in the movie, he refers to her as Dr. Grey, which shows that he knows her status as a doctor. Most people, especially of his station, would know better than to ever call someone with a Doctorate degree "Miss" instead of "Doctor".
Corrected entry: When Wolverine first comes into Professor X's room, there are students there, then they leave through the door. One girl turns back for something, then runs THROUGH the door. Maybe she can change her own molecular structure, but what about that of her backpack? Her clothes might not be real--like the men's suit Mystique appears to wear when she's Gyrich - but surely the backpack is.rbryant73
Corrected entry: When Sabertooth kills the harbour patrol guard he throws the guard down right next to him and looks at him for a few seconds, you then get a shot of Sabertooth taken from the water and this gives you a large area around Sabertooth to see. Sabertooth begins to walk off and the dead guard is no longer there even though no attempts to move the guard out of sight were made. Where did the guard go?
Corrected entry: When Cyclops is at the train station looking at the train schedule board you can see a boy looking at his viser. The boy is rather chubby-cheeked. Then when Cyclops looks down at the boy and smile the kid smiles back, but this boy is a thinner than the kid in the first shot. then in the next shot when the boy's mother drags him away it is the same chubby-cheeked kid from the first shot.
Corrected entry: In the chess game at the end of the film, both of Xavier's bishops are on clear squares as opposed to one on clear, one on frosted.
