Plot hole: Jean Grey decides to wear her original X-Men uniform in her trial-by-combat. But how could she possibly have had the uniform with her? She wasn't wearing it when the X-Men were suddenly and unexpectedly abducted by the Shi'ar and taken into outer space, and the Shi'ar weren't about to let Jean go back home and grab it.

Other mistake: When Professor X says "We must do all we can to defeat the Phoenix within her," there is a black spot that moves vertically across the screen as the camera is panning from Cyclops to Wolverine. It's as if there was a small bug on the lens. (00:11:00)Phaneron
Continuity mistake: When Cyclops blasts a hole in the floor beneath Sebastian Shaw and causes him to fall through it, Shaw lands on a catering table. Later when Beast jumps down the hole to attack Shaw, Shaw is emerging from underneath heavy rubble rather than a catering table, and he is inexplicably shirtless. The rubble also changes from being brown just before Beast jumps down the hole, and is then white after he lands. Additionally, the floor goes from being black-and-white checkered to a solid brown color. (00:15:55 - 00:17:05)
Other mistake: When Apocalypse is holding Rogue upside-down, her belt remains in place despite the fact that her belt is wider than her waist and abdomen (it is not as wide as her hips which is why it remains in place when she is upright). Her belt should have fallen down to underneath her breasts. (00:11:50)Phaneron
Plot hole: Corsair takes out the X-Men by having Raza calibrating their stun weapon to humans. Since Corsair is also a human, the blast renders him unconscious along with the X-Men, and the Starjammers take him away. When Wolverine and Phoenix regain consciousness, they realize that Cyclops has been taken by the Starjammers as well. The problem is since Corsair was unconscious, he couldn't have possibly ordered the Starjammers to take Cyclops with them, and the Starjammers had no reason to take Cyclops of their own volition. Raza even acknowledges that Corsair is the one that takes Cyclops. (00:08:15 - 00:09:00)Phaneron
Continuity mistake: Beast disarms a member of the Friends of Humanity whilst perched on a street lamp. When the angle changes to a wide shot, Beast is much higher on the lamp post and would have been too far out of reach to disarm the man in the first place. (00:11:45)Phaneron
Other mistake: When Wolverine, Gambit and Beast are battling members of the Friends of Humanity, Wolverine slices through the gun of one of their members. From the angle Wolverine is standing respective to the F.O.H. Member, he could not have possibly sliced through the gun without also slicing off the man's left hand. (00:12:00)Phaneron
Plot hole: The establishing shot of the White House indicates that President Kelly's press conference is taking place there. A member of the Friends of Humanity disguised as a mutant busts into the room and starts terrorizing the reporters and destroying everything. The Secret Service would have either detained or shot this man long before he could have even gotten close to the press conference. Graydon Creed also shoves a security guard that tries to intervene but somehow isn't arrested for it. (00:05:50 - 00:06:35)Phaneron
Continuity mistake: The exploding playing card that Gambit uses to destroy a few Sentinels and draw the rest above ground is cleverly shown to be the ace of spades (also known as the death card in some folklore), but the card he is shown charging up before the Sentinels see it is the 2 of diamonds. (00:12:10)Phaneron
Continuity mistake: When Gyrich is in the car trying to get Trask on the phone, he is shown to be sitting in the backseat on the passenger side (note the windows immediately to his right and behind him). When his driver crashes the car into a tree, Gyrich is shown exiting the car from the front passenger seat. (00:08:00)Phaneron
Plot hole: After Wolverine deduces that Colossus wasn't the person who destroyed the X-mansion and Colossus walks away, Jubilee gets a phone call from Rogue literally less than 30 seconds later informing them that the bank was being robbed by somebody big who is later revealed to be the Juggernaut. Wolverine (now wearing a different set of clothes) and Jubilee are then shown arriving at the bank in Wolverine's jeep just in time to see Colossus being arrested for the crime while claiming he was only trying to open an account and stop the robber. If the robbery was being committed while Colossus was fighting Wolverine, then the police and bank employees would have known Colossus was not the perpetrator, not to mention the bank would have been closed off to the public, effectively preventing Colossus from going in to open an account in the first place. The only way Colossus could have feasibly been implicated would be if he was at the bank the same time that Rogue called Jubilee, which he obviously could not have reached the bank in that amount of time since Wolverine had to drive there.Phaneron
