Corrected entry: When the X-Mansion is being attacked, Wolverine jumps off the stairs onto two soldiers and throws them backwards with his claws. The soldiers are level with his wrists as they begin flying back. If they had been thrown in such a way, they would have followed the same path through the air as Wolverine's claws.
Correction: There are four soldiers not two. The first two he drops on and the second pair he stabs low and flips them backwards with a turn of his arm.
Corrected entry: In the scene in the museum food court when Professor Xavier freezes time, just before the shot cuts away from the boy who has been set on fire by Pyro and extinguished by Iceman you can see a big drop of the SFX "ice" fall from his chin. If time was frozen for him then obviously it wouldn't do that.
Correction: Time isn't frozen - Xavier has no power to do that. What he's done is mentally freeze all those present in their tracks, effectively locking their minds so that they aren't capable of movement and they aren't aware of anything going on around them. Time, gravity and so forth are all fully in operation as per normal, so it's entirely reasonable that ice could fall off the boy's chin.
Corrected entry: In the middle of the Wolverine/Deathstrike fight, there is a scene showing Iceman, Rogue, and Pyro waiting on the jet. Pyro stands up and says, "that's it," and lowers the ramp to leave. Iceman jumps up and says, "Paul, where do you think you're going?" The problem is, it was established at least twice (most notably when he's talking to Magneto) that Pyro's birth name is John. Even odder, the actor who plays him is Aaron Stanford, so it makes absolutely no sense for Iceman to call him Paul.
Correction: He calls him pyro. not Paul. he just says it very quickly.
Corrected entry: In the climax, when Wolverine struggles getting towards Jean, some of the flesh on his body is ripped off by Jean's mutant power. The flesh then is quickly back by Logan's rapid healing ability. But the hair on his chest also comes back the same as it was before. This is not supposed to happen.
Correction: First, this is for the wrong film. The sequence you're describing is from X-Men 3. Second, as you say, these are *mutant* powers. The very definition implies that the abilities don't conform to anything natural as we understand it.
Corrected entry: When Wolverine is told by the police to drop the knives, he eventually retracts his claws and the skin heals instantly, but he's still got wounds on his arms from several minutes past.
Correction: The wounds on his arms were more severe when he received them, so they're taking longer to heal.
Correction: He was being sarcastic. He says "mabye it would be easier to round mutants up by the truckload" sarcasticly. If we could hear what he says afterwards we would probably hear him defending mutants as he is one.
Corrected entry: When Nightcrawler is attacking all the guards at the White House, after a guard says "Lock this place down", one of the guards lies flat on his back, yet in the following shot he is on his side.
Correction: He could have rolled over when the camera wasn't on him. It doesn't take that long to roll onto your side.
Corrected entry: When William Stryker is in the school and is walking towards Cerebro, there is a large metal box to the right of the screen against the wall, in the following shot a large door has appeared next to it, that wasn't in the previous shot.
Correction: There actually is a door there. It's just hidden in a recess like all the other doors.
Corrected entry: In the fight sequence between Hugh Jackman and Kelly Hu in the chamber where Stryker modified Logan, just after they both crash into the glass shelving, there is a shot where you can see the cable pulling Logan into the air.
Correction: Actually, what you see is one of Deathstrike's claws. It looks like a wire, but I watched it many times and it's definitely one of her claws.
Corrected entry: At the end of the film, when the President is making his speech, he is interrupted by the X-Men led by Xavier who has stopped all the presidential staff so he can reveal info about Stryker to the President.This is all well and good but what all about the tens of thousands of Americans who will be watching? They will have seen all of Xavier's brief, unless he could stop that many people without seeing them, or know who to stop out of the entire country.
Correction: He or somebody from his crew could easily have switched off the cameras or interrupted the transmission in any other way (they are powerful enough). The people watching would just think that there was a problem with the transmission of the speech.
Corrected entry: The Terminator Connection: 1)The T-1000 in T2 can be summed up by the words 'Blades' and 'Imitation'. Here, Wolverine has the blades, and Mystique has the imitation. 2)Colossus forms a steel skin to avoid bullets, like a terminator's, and also resembles the T-1000 when he does so.
Correction: First of all, a Terminator does not form a steel skin to become bulletproof. Either they have organic skin (T 800-series), or they are all metal to begin with (T-1000 and T-X). Secondly, small similarities between movie characters do not necessarily mean they are connected or inspired by one another.
Corrected entry: If you have the DVD of X Men 2, in the scene where Rogue falls out of the jet, right after the shot where Bobby yells out "Rogue" the camera shot moves to Logan who Shouts "No" (If you have the DVD) slow the movie down by 1/2 or a 1/4 and as you watch, you will see Logan look strait into the camera as soon as he turns around.
Correction: When Logan turns and briefly glances toward the camera lens, it can be presumed that he is simply glancing at the area of the camera as if the camera is not there.
Corrected entry: When the X-Men's jet was about to crash and Magneto saves them by preventing the crash, how did he also know to repair the hole in the back of the jet? As the jet comes to a stop, the nose of the jet is facing Magneto.
Correction: Magneto's highly attuned to metals - as we see when he picks up on the metal in the guard's blood - and things constructed using them. When he took control of the plane, he sensed the disruption caused by the attack and bent the metal back into shape.
Corrected entry: Near the end of the film, Magneto & Mystique are approaching the guarded Cerebro machine. There are around 8 guards, but when Magneto pulls all the pins out of their grenades, and then collects them into a pile, there are around 30 pins.
Correction: High chance that the guards carried more than just one grenade each.
