Continuity mistake: When Wolverine crashes into the tree knocked over by Sabertooth, notice that the entire front of the truck gets completely folded up and the windshield breaks into a thousand pieces. In the next frame, Wolverine gets thrown through the unbroken windshield and the front of the truck is practically undamaged...

Continuity mistake: When young Magneto is struggling with the guards at the concentration camp, the father's star switches from one side of his chest to the other.


Revealing mistake: After Toad spits his slime at Jean Grey he falls to the floor. You can see the tether that was holding him in mid air.


X-Men mistake picture

Revealing mistake: Just before Sabretooth grabs Storm at the train station he swats a guy aside who was standing in line behind Storm. You can clearly see a wire attached to the guy to yank him off-frame.


Revealing mistake: Right after the scene where Sabretooth dispatches the Liberty Island guard, the camera switches to a head on shot of Magneto's boat ferrying the torch. As the camera moves upward, you can distinctly see the head of someone crouching down next to Mystique as she captains the boat and it is actually the guard that was the boat pilot.


Factual error: The helicopter markings and paint schemes are exclusive ONLY to POTUS (President of the United States). Senator Kelly, even thought he's trying to get a Presidential bid, wouldn't be allowed to fly around in aircraft marked like that.


Revealing mistake: The metal bar wrapped around Storm's neck in the Statue of Liberty is noticeably wrinkled. Obviously a painted strip of foam rubber.

Revealing mistake: In the middle of the film when Magneto goes to get Rogue from inside the train, he opens the train up, and if you look behind him you can see the roof of the studio.



Continuity mistake: When Magneto discovers Senator Kelly has got out of his barred window, he then leaves the room, out of an opening he made in the barred door. As he leaves, between three shots the amount of bars that are bent on either side of the opening actually differs.

Visible crew/equipment: The camera is visible in Cyclops' glasses when he is in Logan's room and says, "Oh, and Logan: stay away from my girl."

Revealing mistake: In one scene Magneto makes two police cars fly up into the air. Then in the shot when they come back down a thick wire is visible, attached to the bottom of the car pulling it down

Continuity mistake: Close to the middle when Senator Kelly hangs over the edge of the cliff face, Magneto pulls away the metal bars and crosses his hands/fingers twice.



Continuity mistake: When Mystique reveals herself to Senator Kelly on the helicopter, her blue body is appearing and it shows Senator Kelly watching for a few seconds, but when it shows Mystique again, the blue body thing continues from the part it left off at. It should have been to her legs at the rate it was going at before.

Continuity mistake: Right after Wolverine slices the tip off one of the Statue of Liberty's prongs, he strikes a dramatic pose: left arm cocked at his chest, right arm extended. In the next shot, his right arm is at his shoulder and his left is in front.



Continuity mistake: At the start when Rogue walks into the bar, when she walks towards the cage, note all the things around her from the camera's perspective (which is from behind her): the wooden plank in front of her which she walks around, and the burning can to the left of the screen. When the camera cuts to the front, the wooden plank is not there and neither is the burning can (now to the right of the screen).



Continuity mistake: When Senator Kelly gets out of his limo and waves to the crowd, in the first shot, he moves to stand in front of the door, yet in the following shot he is still behind the door.


X-Men mistake picture

Revealing mistake: In Toad's final scene of the movie, when he is beginning to fight Storm, he leaps into the air onto the balcony railing. If you look at the back of his belt, his wire is very, very obviously visible. There are several times within the movie when Toad or Storm has a wire showing, but none so obvious as that one.

Continuity mistake: When Mystique and Wolverine are fighting, Mystique lifts up a chain link door and Wolverine cuts through it with his claws. It splits and the two pieces go separate ways, yet in the following shot the door is on the floor near Wolverine with only one side cut.



Continuity mistake: Just after Sabertooth has dropped the Senator into the water, the mutated Senator pops out of the water. In the first shot, he is facing the boy, but in the next shot he has his back to the boy, then facing the boy again. Also, when he pops out the water he is only a few feet away from the boy's yellow boat, yet in another shot he is much farther from the boat.



Continuity mistake: In the Statue of Liberty scene just after Wolverine, Storm Cyclops and Jean go through the metal detectors, they walk off and watch in the background, you can see Wolverine walk past Cyclops yet in the following shot he is walking past again.



Continuity mistake: After the guy comes at Wolverine with a knife, Wolverine holds him against a wooden post. His jacket is off his shoulders after being pushed against the post, but when Wolverine slices the shotgun in half the jacket is back on his shoulders.



Continuity mistake: When Rogue is seen for the first time, her hand is moving up photographs on the wall, and if you look closely there are some kind of red poppies when she reaches the end, yet when it cuts to another shot a bit further away, her finger is a lot further down the wall from the red poppy/flower.



Continuity mistake: When Storm and Cyclops are in the train station, and Toad whips Cyclops goggles off, he punches a hole through the ceiling of the train station behind him, yet the hole changes from behind him to above Storm between shots.



Continuity mistake: When Cyclops and Storm are in the train station, Storm is held up by Sabretooth, Cyclops spots this and starts to walk over to help. He stretches his arms out between a lot of people to push two people out the way, yet when the shot changes to Toad's POV all the people around him are at least two to three feet away from him.



Continuity mistake: When Wolverine leaves the mansion at the end of the film, he has a curl in his hair whilst talking with Rogue. Once he exits the mansion, the curl has disappeared.



Continuity mistake: The direction Magnetos helmet faces as it sits on his desk in his lair constantly changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, when Storm and Cyclops are standing behind Sabretooth, the camera cuts to Cyclops. He raises his right hand to shoot his red beam at Sabretooth, but when the shot cuts to a wider shot he has his right hand by his side.



Revealing mistake: When Storm is using her powers to blow Toad out of the Statue of Liberty there are things swirling around and blowing, but a rack of T-shirts doesn't move.

Audio problem: Just before Cyclops shoots his beam which breaks the toad-slime off of Jean Grays face, he says "Don't move," however HIS MOUTH doesn't move.

Continuity mistake: Just after the soldier hits the young Magneto with his gun, the guy on the left is holding him and he turns away looking at the ground (probably so he knows where to fall). Yet in the following shot, the boy is looking up on top of the guy who is facing up.



Revealing mistake: The "copper" straps used to restrain the heroes in the Statue of Liberty are actually made of foam or some other malleable material. They flex considerably as the characters struggle.


Continuity mistake: When Wolverine has just walked into Xavier's office for the first time, a girl picks up her book then runs towards Wolverine. Her left hand is on her bag, but in the following shot when Wolverine looks over his shoulder, her left hand is now on the left strap of the bag.



Continuity mistake: When Wolverine and Rogue are in Wolverines truck, just prior to the crash, we see them driving near huge trees with thick leaves that can't be seen through. Yet when Rogue says the line "You really should wear your seatbelt", the view out her window shows a handful of trees that one can through for a mile.

Continuity mistake: When Senator Kelly meets Magneto for the first time, it's outside and cold. When you see Kelly his breath shows blowing to the left of the screen. But when you get the reverse angle of Magneto and Mystique their breath also goes off to the left of the screen. It should be blowing to the right.

Continuity mistake: In his truck, Wolverine is smoking a cigar while the window is rolled up. But when he stops after hearing a noise, the window is now rolled down. Then the window is a quarter way up as he gets out of his truck.


Audio problem: When Rogue is riding in Wolverine's truck and he gives her the beef jerky, you can hear her lips smacking as she eats, but she is actually chewing with her mouth closed.


Continuity mistake: When Logan is driving his truck the road is free of snow, but when he gets out because he hears Rogue in the back, the road is covered with snow.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Close to the beginning of the film when Rogue is in a classroom with other students, she has two books in front of her, yet in a few shots later the books change position on the table.


X-Men mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Rogue sits at the bar, as the bartender cleans a cup, a metal ashtray appears beside Rogues glass of water between shots.


Hamster Premium member

Audio problem: After Rogue was stabbed through the chest by Logan, she is sitting on the bench outside. Bobby/Mystique walks up to her from behind. Rogue says "Bobby" but her lips say "Hi".


Continuity mistake: The chain Mystique wraps around Wolverine's wrists during their fight scene near the end of the movie mysteriously disappears shortly after that moment.


Revealing mistake: When Magneto is lifting up Wolverine on the train, you can see screws on the bottom of his claws. His claws are natural, with metal directly bonded to them, and did not need to otherwise be attached.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Logan is in bed in Xavier's mansion, Rogue walks in and tries to wake him. When Jean says, "Scott, grab a pillow," Rogue is still facing in Logan's direction, then it cuts and she is now facing Storm.



Continuity mistake: During the final scene with Xavier and Magneto playing chess, there is a pawn missing from the board after Xavier leaves and Magneto pushes over his King.


Continuity mistake: In the Statue of Liberty, Cyclops reaches up to his visor with his left hand and blasts away the door that was trapping him. Yet from behind he lifting up his right hand.


Continuity mistake: In the Statue of Liberty, when Toad has shot his slime at Jean Grey's face, we see Cyclops shoot his optic beam to free himself from the room he was trapped in. Then he rushes to Jean's aid. If you look closely you can see that the gloves he was wearing, as part of his costume, are no longer there when he takes the slime off of Jean's face.


Continuity mistake: When the police rush into the Statue of Liberty, a cop stands over a Statue Museum guard. In one shot the guard is on the floor with his left arm outstretched, but in the following overhead shot the arm is underneath him.



Continuity mistake: In the medical bay at the end, Jean's medical coat keeps jumping from positions on her shirt between shots.

Revealing mistake: During the montage that introduces Xavier's School about 27 minutes into the film, you briefly see Cyclops shooting several Frisbees/clay-pigeons out of the air. Watch closely, and you will see that the falling debris from all of the clay-pigeons simply "fades away" shortly after each one explodes. They aren't burning up or disintegrating from his beam. You can see them "fade away" as the animation finishes when each one explodes. A shortcut in the CGI rendering.

Continuity mistake: Logan stabs Rogue through her chest, but there are no marks in the front of her dress.

Continuity mistake: After the last fight Logan is lying at the top of the statue with some wounds on his forehead. In the next shot those wounds increase size and have more blood on them.
