Corrected entry: Given how Mystique can apparently infiltrate any place with her shapeshifting abilities and other talents, why didn't she just free Magneto herself by impersonating the guard, rather than this convolute plan involving injecting him with iron? Or better yet, since Magneto is allowed guests, why not impersonate Xavier?
Corrected entry: When Bobby freezes the coffee in the cup, he manages to defy physics and prevent the frozen liquid from expanding at the same time.
Corrected entry: When the F-16's fire missiles at the Blackbird, Jean diverts one and the other hits them. Why does such a sophisticated aircraft not have something so simple as chaff (radar missile decoy) and flare (infared missile decoy) dipensers? No ECM generators either.
Corrected entry: The supposedly claustrophobic Storm is often seen gallavanting about in narrow hallways, corridors, tunnels, and a tent. Heck, even the Blackbird Jet seems pretty cramped. As this is not mentioned in either movie, it wouldn't be a problem EXCEPT THAT on the X2 website, "claustrophobia" is listed as a weakness in Ororo's profile. As this obviously refers to "movie-Storm," the on-screen incarnation SHOULD fear enclosed spaces.
Corrected entry: Mystique injects the security guard with a liquid metal which is later revealed to be iron. Regardless of whether it's suspended in liquid, molten, or anything else, enough iron to make 3 decent sized ball-bearings, injected into the body, would kill you.
Corrected entry: In the scene when the Professor is waking up from being captured, watch the "neural inhibitor" he is wearing. Some times it has blue neon lights, some times the lights are absent.
Corrected entry: In the climatic finale where Jean Grey left the X-men jet to stop the water from the dam, would it not be easier and more logical to have Ice Man create a wall of ice and Jean Grey to just lift the ship away?
Corrected entry: We see Magneto pulls the pins out of the security guards grenades, however, a real grenade would not explode if this happened. The handle, called the spoon, has to be released from the grenade first. (This is to ensure that the grenade does not explode until it leaves the thrower's hand after the pin is pulled.) The spoons of the grenades on the guards appear to be held down by the loops holding them in place, and we never see the spoons come off or hear them hit the floor.
Corrected entry: Think that maybe professor X would wisen up in securing Cerebro. It's obvious from the first movie that the eye scan isn't effective (especially because some one like Mystique can change her eyes, and she's still out there) yet he obviously did nothing because Stryker gains access with his machine. You'd think that he might do something simple like, I dont know, password protect it like the government files that Mystique couldn't access.
Corrected entry: When Cyclops was helping Jean Grey get on the jet to flee before the dam burst, you can see that Jean Grey is running with BOTH feet, and not limping on one foot as she supposedly "broke/sprained" her leg earlier.
Corrected entry: The sign at the gates of the Alkali Lake complex says that it was run by the Department of Natural Resources. The complex was a Federally run facility in Canada, so the sign should be in both English AND French.
Corrected entry: When Professor X asks Wolverine to put out his cigar while in Cerebro, he looks around, and finding no other alternative, stubs it out on the palm of his hand, causing him obvious discomfort. It's not like there's anyone else around to show off to, so why not just stub it out the sole of his boot? Some people say Professor X made him do it, but it's hardly in his nature to deliberately cause someone else pain, even if he'd heal from it quickly.Jon Sandys
Corrected entry: One supposes the Professor could pronounce his last name any way he'd like, but not only is it pronounced Za-vier in the dictionary, there isn't a single word in English beginning with X that is pronounced "eggs" as the "eggs-avier" in the movie. Its always like "z".
Corrected entry: In the scene where Wolverine meets Stryker for the first time (in the mansion), there are obvious blood stains on his shoulders and face. That's impossible seeing that he has healing abilities and can heal without leaving any visible marks or bloodstains (ie. the bullet that hit him straight in the forehead).
Corrected entry: In the scene when they find nightcrawler in the church, he turns away from them and they see the drug circle on the back of his neck. he touches it with his fingers and his fingernails are yellow. however, later on, in the jet and also when he is talking to Storm, his fingernails are blue like the rest of his body
Corrected entry: With regards to the Department of Nartural Resources sign at Alkali Lake - Canada doesn't have a Department of Natural Resources, they have a Ministry of Natural Resources.
