Suggested correction: When Xavier is in the plastic prison with magneto, at the end of the scene Xavier has not changed his hands positioning, his right arm is up and his left arm is half way, on the following shot outside the prison his right arm is up and his left arm is up half way, it's a mirror image.

The mistake isn't saying his right and left hand have switched because they were confused about the "mirror" image. You can see the left arm is lower. At first the left elbow is above the frosted part, but in the next shot, it's well below and the hand is closer to the frosted part.

Stupidity: The prison where Magneto is held should have had a contingency plan just in case of escape, like machine guns outside the cell, or tranquilizer darts, or gas.

Suggested correction: What good would machine guns and tranquilizer darts be against a man who can literally control and manipulate metal? As for gas, the area outside the cell is so large that any gas would quickly dissipate before it could be effective.

A gun made of plastic, there are million of materials beside metal.

Continuity mistake: When Wolverine attacks the SWAT member in the Mutant Academy kitchen while Iceman takes cover, there's a spot the difference competition between the start and end of the gunfight. After a second or two there are bullet holes in the back wall, the Dr. Pepper's been knocked over, the basket's gone from the corner of the table, and the chair at the right is maybe a foot from the corner. When we cut back, the bullet holes in the wall have changed position, the Dr. Pepper's righted itself, the basket's back on the corner, and the chair's now much closer to the edge. All this while Iceman's hiding and Wolverine and the gunman are fighting each other. (00:36:40)

Question: When Mystique is disguised as Senator Kelly, why did she tell the other politicians about Professor Xavier's school?

Answer: Stryker was trying to get permission from the President to raid the school on the grounds that it is a mutant training facility. Mystique interjects and claims it is a docile boarding school in an attempt to dissuade the President from granting Stryker's request, as she doesn't want the students at the school to be harmed.
