Question: Aren't freight trains awfully loud in real life? Triple doesn't seem very loud in the movie.
Question: Who was the real commander of the Serbian army when O'Grady was stranded behind enemy lines?
Question: Would the kind of field trip the kids were going on in the movie ever be allowed in real life?
Question: Bunny says he needs track D-16 track cleared because there are students are going on a field trip on that track. What if a freight train had finished loading at the day the field trip was taking place, and they needed use track D-16 in order to reach its destination?
Question: During the end of the statue of liberty scene, Cyclops is about to destroy the mutation machine, but shoots Magneto instead. Immediately after, Jean has a meaningful look on her face and I don't really know why. I suspect that Jean used her powers of telekinesis to make Cyclops shoot Magneto instead of the machine since shooting at the machine would kill Rogue and Wolverine. Can anyone tell me the meaning of that look on Jean's face?
Question: Shortly after Sam throws some items off the life raft, Al appears and tells him that because of what Sam had done, neither he nor Vanessa would be saved for quite a while. If Sam had not done anything, both of them would have been rescued within an hour. I might be wrong about this next part so further verification will help. Al also said that because of Sam throwing stuff into the ocean, that somehow, instead if only being stranded in the lifeboat for a few minutes, four whole hours have passed. How could tossing anything into the ocean have made time move so rapidly?
Question: Do we know that Michael is dead for sure? It seems way too abrupt, against character and anti-climactic for him to have died in the manner alluded to in the film. Or should we assume that not seeing his corpse or hearing 100% confirmation of his death means he might still be alive?TedStixon
