The Wolverine mistake picture

Other mistake: Wolverine shields Yashida from the blast, burning off all his hair. Somehow his pants manage to remain unaffected by this, as seen later when they are climbing from the pit.

Other mistake: When Wolverine has the parasite inside him he can't heal, but the holes for the claws heals just fine.

Other mistake: When Logan loses his ability to heal, all his wounds stay, but his hands still heal after every usage of his claws - the skin on his hands is untouched.

Factual error: In the Shinkansen fighting scene, the railway line is seen having color light signals along its way. But the Shinkansen uses a signalling system that doesn't involve the use of light signals at all.

Question: Was Logan's healing factor completely removed by Viper or just slowed down a lot? In the funeral fight scenes and on the train he was shot and stabbed multiple times, yet he was only slowed down. It seems if the healing factor was at 0% he would have bled to death right after. (Especially after a shotgun blast to the abdomen at point blank range) And is the healing factor back at 100% now even after the grandfather sucked a bunch of it out?

Answer: The healing factor was only reduced. Like you said, had it been removed he would have bled to death and every time he used his claws he would be bleeding from his hands. It is not revealed if it is at full strength at the end of the film, but it is likely it will return to full strength over time.
