X-Men 2

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?

Correction: Mystique would have needed a pretty good pretext to get him out, regardless of who she pretended to be, and still couldn't have taken anything in that might have aided his escape. Hiding metal in an unsuspecting guard is far more effective, especially since the area would have been locked down as soon as the escape became apparent.


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?

Correction: Ice Man is still a young mutant, probably he doesn't have full control over his powers yet. Sitting in a plane with a huge flood on the way might disturb the young boy so that he is unable to concentrate enough to use his powers, let alone think about how he can use them.

Corrected entry: During the movie, Xavier is just barely stopped from killing the entire human race unintentionally. However, he does manage to put the humans in a temporary state giving them seizure-like symptoms. Now, what the movie doesn't mention is; wouldn't there be millions dead already? I mean, so many people would have died from things where you need FULL consciousness, like driving, swimming, flying. Plus the old and infirm, who probably couldn't have withstood an onslaught like that.

Correction: When the camera is panning through what is happening in cerebro you can see many humans who are gripping their heads in pain, and then all of a sudden vanish, meaning that alot of people did die because of what happened. Also when the President is preparing for his speach he says something about the attack which nearly annihilated our way of life, which again shows that many people died.

Corrected entry: We're told in the first film that the X-jet is stealthy - invisible to radar, etc. If that's the case, how on earth did 2 F-16s manage to track it down and get a lock on it?

Correction: The police told the air base about after they left, and the pilots found it with their eyes. It may be fast, but something as big as the Blackbird is pretty noticable.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Nightcrawler is attacking the president and the secrect service agents, he is seen "jumping" from room to room with the doors closed. Later in the movie Nightcrawler confirms himself that he has to see the place he needs to "jump" into and cannot do it blindly or he may end up in a wall.

Correction: But at the time he wasn't under his own control - Stryker was controlling him, and he probably didn't care if he ended up teleporting Nightcrawler into a wall. Plus of course, Stryker has been to the White House before, so knows the layout. Also, if you watch carefully, Nightcrawler knocks most of the doors off of their hinges, allowing him to get a clear view of the rooms.

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.

Correction: Not really true. There tends to be less and less French the further west you go. Quebec has no English but Ontario has both etc. Also, how old is this base? We haven't always had the language laws we have now.

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.

Correction: It has to do with the apparent jump in her mutant abilities. Once Cyclops helps her into the jet she refuses his help when he tries to continue caring for her. With an odd look on her face, she mentions that she's fine then later runs outside and does battle with the tidal wave. She's flipping switches, lifting the jet, holding Nightcrawler inside, pushing back the wave, and controlling the flight-stick all at the same time. I think that once she knew what she was going to do she used her own "TK" powers to get her act together. Why would a woman that can lift and hold things with her mind need some dude or crutches for that matter, to lean on. She held herself together, literally.

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.

Correction: As someone who also suffers from claustrophobia, I can be pretty sure when I say that each situation would have been within the comfort level. For example: The blackbird was cramped, but spacious enough so as not to suffocate her. The corridors were tight, but wide enough for a number of people to walk in at a time. You never see her tent, but most likely she left the flap open (that's what I do).

Corrected entry: When the X-jet is crashing, Magneto just happens to be at the place it's falling down? Talk about luck!

Correction: Not luck, just Magento's great thinking and planning. He figured that the jet would return to the mansion, and it was. He probably noticed the battle and knew the X-Jet was damaged. It was already on it's way down, Magneto just used his ability to control metal to bring it towards him. It did not fall to him, he pulled it.

Corrected entry: When Wolverine is talking to Bobby in the kitchen, after Wolverine has got Bobby to freeze his Dr. Pepper for him, there is a shot from behind Wolverine's shoulder asking Bobby a question. But while he's doing that, at the same time he's drinking from his soda bottle.

Mark Cuss

Correction: Yes, but he finishes the question just as the bottle reaches his lips and we hear moving liquid. Possibly cutting it a bit fine and risking spillage, but hey, he's Wolverine...

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.

Correction: Speaking as an ex-chemistry teacher: water is really weird. It expands if you cool it to the freezing point OR IF YOU HEAT IT. That is, the frozen tea, and the very hot tea, might be the same amount LARGER than lukewarm tea. It's perfectly plausible that hot tea could occupy the same volume as frozen tea, although I haven't checked the coefficient of thermal expansion for tea to be sure.

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).

Correction: His wounds heal, but the blood stays. The blood is still there, when his bullet wound heals.

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.

Correction: The lights are on the inside of the device so the angle of the camera caused them to be blocked out at times by the device itself.

Corrected entry: Xavier's school has all the technology that money can buy... except for an alarm system? How many mansions wouldn't have security systems to protect against burglary? And how many secret superhero training facilities wouldn't have security systems to alert them to possible enemy attacks? It's utterly implausible that Stryker could have infiltrated that mansion without a single alarm going off.

Correction: Due to the fact that it seems people are always moving around and coming and going at the mansion, false alarms would be frequent enough to not arm it. Also since they had the blueprints to the mansion they also probably had schematics to any security system and the advanced team would be able to defeat or circumvent it.

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.

Correction: There is in fact a Department of Natural Resources in Canada. The official web site is http://www.cfl.forestry.ca/CFL-LFC/who_we_are/role_nrcan.html

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.

Correction: Actually... if you watch closely, the scene cuts between angles pretty quickly, you will see the handle (spoon) pop off on some of them after the pins are pulled.

Corrected entry: Early in the movie when Logan is at the 'abandoned' military base, watch his hair and eye brows. The style of both changes significantly between the first shots and the later shots. This is because they had to film the later part of the scene towards the end of filming, when his appearance had been changed considerably, mostly because he was in the middle of shooting Van Helsing, which will be released in 2004.


Correction: Duplicated.

Corrected entry: If Stryker is a US Army Special Ops officer, what the heck is he doing in Canada developing the Weapon X Project on a Canadian citizen (Logan)? Does the US now sanction the use of their officers in foreign scientific espionage?

Correction: It's explained in the comics that the Weapon X project involves many different countries, USA, Japan, Canada, Russia, and numerous others that haven't been divulged yet.

Corrected entry: Why bother creating a new cerebro? Stryker took over the mansion, gained access to Cerebro, and could have just brought his son Jason and Professor X to the mansion.

Correction: The US Government knows he has taken over the mansion. If he carried out his operation from there, then they'd know who killed or tried to kill all the mutants. That could start a war between the humans over the mutants' death.

Corrected entry: Iceman's parents are told that the mutant gene is passed from father to son. This is a contradiction in terms; mutation, by definition, means some change that occurs in the genes AFTER they have been combined from the mother and father.

Correction: However once the mutation has taken place it can THEN be passed on.

In the end, when the President is visited by the X-Men, he receives a blue binder, which is laid in front of him on the table. When they have left, you see a shot including the President's desk, and you can see that the only thing he has on the table are some sheets of paper, stapled in the upper left corner, opened up. Then the shot changes to a close-up of the President, and then back again, and you see the blue binder in front of him, closed, and the papers have disappeared.
