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.
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.
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.
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.
Corrected entry: If Kurt didn't know who he was before he attacked the President, how did he know he did the angelic symbols himself?
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.
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.
Corrected entry: Magneto only escapes his prison by ripping the excess iron out of the guard's blood, which Mystique injected. There was an even better opportunity to escape earlier, when Miss Nagai came in and attacked Cyclops. Miss Nagai has an adamantium skeleton, just like Wolverine, and he could've easily ripped this metal out instead.
Corrected entry: When the X-Men are running out of the dam, Ororo and Kurt are holding Professor X up. Kurt is on his left, and Ororo is on his right. In the next shot, they've switched spots. They could have stopped and swapped places, but that would have slowed everyone down considerably, so they probably didn't.
Corrected entry: When Cyclops goes to check if Jean Grey is alright after recovering from Stryker's mind control, we see him walk around and grab Jean before quickly assuring her that he is fine. Trouble is, we only see him walking to find her. Given their serious situation and his love for Jean, he would definitely have being moving much faster (running even).Gavin Jackson
Corrected entry: When Xavier is being brainwashed into killing all the humans via Cerebro, there's a fly-through of the Cerebro map and all of the screaming people. Earlier you could see the outlines of the continents because of the people, but in this fly-through, Japan, Great Britain and Ireland are missing, even though they are not uninhabited.
Corrected entry: Obviously Jean has new powers is X2 and Cylops mentions Liberty Island to her in the museum scene. Now watching the Liberty Island scene again in X-Men 1 when Wolverine is trying to slice up Magneto's machine, you'll notice two things. 1. There is some sort of firey substance around Wolverine's hand. Possibly Jean helping him and not realising? 2. When the machine has been destroyed, Jean looks shocked/surprised at something. Possibly the display of power, or maybe the radiation having an effect on her?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Nightcrawler tries to kill the President, the Agent who shoots him is lying on the floor right behind him. This means that Nightcrawler was shot in the back of the arm. But when Storm and Jean are cleaning his wound in the church, the bullet hole is more in the center of his arm.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie in the museum scene when everyone other than the mutants are stopped and frozen in time, look closely and you will see a young girl who slightly moves positions even though she is supposed to be completely still.
Corrected entry: When Wolverine is shot in the head, his Adamantium skull blocks the bullet, which means he only has a simple flesh wound. Based on this and on how fast he heals from far worse injuries, it shouldn't have taken him so long to heal, and it shouldn't have knocked him out in the first place.
Corrected entry: Logan takes a bullet to the head which knocks him out. The scene develops where the wound begins to heal (finally) and the slug pops out. Lead is a soft metal and adamantium is the hardest and indestructible. How did the slug lodge? There's not enough flesh in that spot to hold it in place.
Corrected entry: In the Oval Office at the end of the film, Professor Xavier uses his telepathy to freeze all the people in the room. When the shot switches to a front view of the X-Men, watch the frozen people in the background closely. They are all quite good at being perfectly still, except for a blonde woman who is blinking rapidly and breathing heavily.furious1116
Corrected entry: In the scene where the X-men's jet had just gotten hit by the missile, and Rogue is thrown from the plane, Nightcrawler warps out and grabs her, then warps back into the plane. Doesn't he later say in front of Cerebro that he can't warp to places he can't see? I don't think he possibly could have seen into the plane from below and behind it.
Corrected entry: In the end, when the President is visited by the X-Men, Professor X has stopped time, but right before he speaks, you can see a female journalist in back of him blink 3 times after the lightning stops.
Corrected entry: Pyro says that the mutant gene is carried by males, yet Iceman's brother is not a mutant. This is impossible. If the mutant gene is carried by the father, then the gene must be on the Y chromosome. Refresher: Males; XY Females; XX. This means that the father must be a mutant as well unless something triggers the mutation in the fetus. Which also means if a child ends up being male, it will always get the father's Y chromosome, and the brother to Iceman must be a mutant also.
Corrected entry: After the gas is released in the plastic prison, Xavier turns around, reaches for the plastic doors and calls Scott. Right before he passes out you can see smear marks from his makeup on the door from a previous take.
Corrected entry: After the attack on Xavier's mansion we hear from one of the characters, possibly when Stryker's soldier reports back to him, that they have six children held captive. When we get towards the end of the film the camera makes it quite awkward to notice but there are only five children held captive. You can see this slightly clearer when Mystique is watching the CCTV cameras and when Nightcrawler tries to rescue them, as well as when they finally emerge from the base and are mostly in a line.
Corrected entry: In the scene in which Xavier is being tricked into entering Cerebro II, we can see a soldier pushing Jason while in his wheelchair into Cerebro II. In the illusion, Xavier and the little girl(Jason) enter the room and have the door swiftly close on them. If Xavier was leading Jason(little girl) and the soldier then where did this soldier go after the door closed on them? Jason couldn't have kept on pushing himself forward without the soldiers help. In the next scene involving Cerebro II the soldier is gone.
Corrected entry: When the X-Men discover that Magneto has reversed Cerebro to target regular humans Cyclops goes to blast the door but Jean tells him not to as opening the door while the Professor is linked to it would kill him and everyone linked to him. So how come Magneto was able to open the door in the first place without killing all the mutants who were linked to the Professor?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Professor X and the "little girl" are about to enter Cerebro (at the X door), the little girl's eyes are the same colour. The rest of the movie she has a blue and green eye.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Wolverine sniffs out a beer in Bobby Drakes house, you see that when he opens the fridge, his beard joins from each sideburn all the way around and under his chin. But when they cut to him taking a swig of the beer, you see that the hair from under his chin is shaven like his top lip and the front of his chin.
Corrected entry: Early in the movie, when the renegade colonel is in the oval office, he looms over the President and says that when the president was still very young, he, the colonel, was flying Blackhawks over Vietnam. The UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter wasn't added to the military inventory until the 1985-1989 timeframe, and the Vietnam War ended in 1975.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Magneto is pulling the metal out of the guard's blood, how come the guard remains still in the air? The metal would exert a force on the body when being pulled through the skin and out, and would pull the guard towards him. Since Magneto can only control metal, he could not push the guard backwards in any way.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Stryker enters the fake Cerebro to give his final instructions to Xavier, he punches a code in a nearby panel to open the double doors. But in an earlier scene the Professor enters the same room and there is no one anywhere near the panel to open it (the guard was behind Jason's chair, and couldn't have got to the panel in time). With no real retinal scanner (it was only an illusion created by Jason), how did those doors open?
Corrected entry: All Storm's previous appearances suggest that, although she can control the weather, she can't make weather effects appear in places where they couldn't normally occur (for example, in the first film, she couldn't just shoot Toad with a lightning bolt while he was in the building; she had to blow him out of the building so he'd be exposed to the sky). So how can she create a snowstorm inside Cerebro 2, deep underground and protected from the elements?Moose
Corrected entry: When the missile from the fighter jet strikes the Blackbird, it hits and explodes at the back of the jet above the engines. However, the damage is shown internally in the rear ceiling of the cabin which Rogue gets sucked out of. Later external shots show this as well.
Corrected entry: In the scenes shot in upstate New York / Boston, the weather is warm and sunny, probably either summer or early autumn. But in the scenes portraying the post in the BC Rockies, it is the dead of winter, with tonnes of ice and snow. Although the two climates are very different, the difference is far too drastic. If it were early fall in Boston, there would possibly be frost up in the northern Rockies, but not full out winter.
Corrected entry: In the bar scene where Mystique meets with the prison guard the TV is on and you can hear it. When the guard tells the bar tender to turn it off the bartender just changes channels. After Mystique carries the beers over to the guard to talk to him you can still hear the TV, but if you look you'll see that it's been turned off.
Corrected entry: When the dam starts to break apart at the top the water shoots straight out. This is physically impossible. As any engineer knows the water pressure is highest at the bottom part of the dam and very low at the top. The water should have been just pouring out not shooting out.
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: 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 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: 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: In the fight scene between Wolverine and Lady Deathstrike, she manages to cut him up pretty bad and puncture his back many times with her claws. Yet in the scenes following the fight his clothes are in perfect condition and they contain no blood. I know he can heal himself, but are his clothes self healing too?
Corrected entry: When Stryker unchains himself from the chopper, he gets up just before Xavier attacks all humans, he then collapses in front of the chopper. When Magneto and Mystique show up Stryker is sitting leaning up next to the wheel with the chain looped over him. He might have sat up somehow, but why would he have looped the chain over himself again?
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 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: In the scene where the police have arrived at the Drake residence and are ordering Pyro to "get down" after shooting Wolverine, Pyro decides to take matters into his own hands by firing flame first at one officer THEN at the other. The officers obviously have itchy trigger fingers and good aim (judging by how quickly and accurately they pegged Wolverine in the head), so wouldn't it stand to reason that the female officer would have shot Pyro while he was "flaming" the male officer?
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: 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.
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.
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 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 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: 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: 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 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: 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.
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.
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: 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.furious1116
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 beginning of the movie when Nightcrawler is about to kill the President pay attention to the knife. When Nightcrawler gets shot in the arm he drops the knife and it leaves a mark on the right side of the desk from the President's point of view. After the attack when Striker says "That was really close" the mark is on the left side of the desk from the President's point of view when he was laying his back on it earlier.
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
