Two mutant brothers, Logan and Victor, born 200 years ago, suffer childhood trauma and have only each other to depend on. Basically, they're fighters and killers, living from war to war through U.S. history. In modern times, a U.S. colonel, Stryker, recruits them and other mutants as commandos. Logan quits and becomes a logger, falling in love with a local teacher. When Logan refuses to rejoin Stryker's crew, the colonel sends the murderous Victor. Logan now wants revenge.

Errors and ExplanationsEdit
Internet Movie DatabaseEdit
- In the helicopter chase through the forest, when Logan is on the motor bike, you can clearly hear the separation of shots coming from the machine gun mounted on the side of the helicopter. However, it is a Gatling style machine gun capable of shooting 6,000 rounds a minute. The sound of it firing is more like a hum rather than a typical bang-bang-bang sound from a standard hand held sub-machine gun. The sound department appears to have simply chosen a "machine gun" sound from a list without being accurate to what type of machine gun it is. It could have set at a lower rate of fire to conserve ammo and improve accuracy.
- When Wolverine notices the farmer's motorcycle, he calls it a chopper. It's supposed to be a 1964 Harley Davidson FL, and appears to be in pretty much stock condition. A chopper is a bike that has been stripped down or "chopped" to a bare essentials condition. (IMDB)The term "chopper" is incorrectly used by many people to describe any kind of large motorcycle.
- After the scene where Wolverine breaks out of the adamantium injection chamber and escapes the facility, there's a close up of Logan looking out into the wilderness. His hair is nicely shaped and dry even though he just came out of a chamber that was filled with water. Could be a mutant ability.
- When Wolverine flies through the air towards the Zero's helicopter you can see the blades of the copter spinning in one direction but when it switches to the close-up as his claws cut the blades, they are spinning the other direction. (IMDB) This may be due to the frame rate of the camera used, similar to when car wheels look like they are spinning backwards when they are filmed.
- During the scene in Lagos, while Team X is walking up to the building, only one katana is visibly strapped to Wade's back. Later in the elevator, both are visible. (IMDB) He did have time to strap it on while walking to the elevator.
- As Wolverine comes back to life in the adamantium injection tank, several shots in a row shows the diagrams inked all over his body to guide the needles. Seconds later, when he stands up to escape, there are no marks on him anywhere. Could be a natural mutant ability.
- After Wolverine jumps out of the plane to go to Three Mile Island he takes some violent bounces across the water. Yet when he shows up moments later in the facility he is completely dry and his clothes are unscathed. He can dry himself very quickly, and his clothes are probably as tough as he is!
- Sabretooth is clearly being shot through the chest by Weapon XI laser vision, yet when Sabretooth regenerates and stands up there are no holes in his shirt or cape, as if it never happened. The cape could have similar regenerative capabilities as him.
- When Wolverine and Gambit are flying in the plane, they are carrying on a normal conversation but without the use of headsets. In a small, two-seater plane it's nearly impossible to hear your own voice screaming, much less someone next to you, because of the proximity of the engine to the passengers. Not necessarily – During the Top Gear getting Truffles to London challenge, the sound level inside the plane was low enough to allow James and Richard to converse at normal volume. In addition, Wolverine and Gambit are mutants, possibly with enhanced hearing.
- When Kayla Silvertooth "dies", it is said it is due to an injection of hydrochlorothiazide. This is a diuretic drug - all it would do is make her urinate more. It is also not available by injection. She could have received a liquefied version. Besides, her mutant physiology could react adversely to diuretics.
Incorrectly regarded as goofsEdit
- Sabretooth and Wolverine are supposed to be brothers, but in the first X-Men movie they encounter each other several times and there is no mention of this connection. This is because Sabretooth suffers from amnesia just like Wolverine, as explained in the comic book "X2 Prequels: Wolverine", which takes place between X-Men and X2.
- On more than one occasion (as himself and as Weapon 11), Dead Pool uses his swords to stab people. Yet, when he pulls them out, there is no blood on the blades. The blades may have some kind of self clean coating on them.
- The child actor playing young James/Logan has blue eyes. Hugh Jackman has brown eyes. (IMDB) Eye colour can change over a lifetime, especially as a young child. This may also be a mutant attribute.
- In the first scene of the movie, it reads "North-West Territories, Canada, 1845". Canada and the Northwest Territories were separate British colonies until 1870. (IMDB)This is done deliberately for a modern audience, who would be unfamiliar with the terms used in 1845.
- Wolverine puts the wrong end of the cigar into his mouth shortly before Zero shoots it, or so it seems. (IMDB) In fact, the head of his cigar is merely raggedly clipped and heavily chewed, and can be seen as such in previous shots.
- In this film, Scott's optic blasts generate heat as seen by the scorching they leave behind. In the other films (and all other media) Scott's optic blasts only generate concussive force. (IMDB) It is said that Dr. Xavier has helped Scott's progress and has helped him to control the intensity of his optic blasts.
- As Wolverine is admiring his new claws in the bathroom he touches the tip of one, making a shrill sound as of metal striking metal, though it was only his fingertip. (IMDB) This is because his fingertip is also made of adamantium, and as seen, Wolverine pokes his claw through his skin, making it possible to make a squealing sound.
- During the scene where Logan destroys the helicopter, while the helicopter is rolling one can clearly see that the cockpit is empty. In the next shot, all of its passengers are back inside. (IMDB) If you look closer you can actually see a pair of legs and a torso (attached together) flying near the top right corner of the cockpit, and then when the heli lies still, the legs are smacked against the cockpit.
- In the bar in Canada when Logan faces Creed, and the close up shots of Logan holding his claws to Creed's face, when Logan exposes and retracts his claws you can see 'wrinkles' of skin between his fingers but when the claws are not moving the skin is smooth. (IMDB) These wrinkles could be a result of the damage to Wolverine's skin every time he exposes or retracts his claws. The smooth shots are the result of his healing power recovering from the wound.
- Kayla tells Logan the story of a wolverine howling at the moon. Wolverines cannot howl, as their vocal cords are not made for it. (IMDB) Cultural stories are not always scientifically accurate, especially if they are a way for a culture to explain something in nature.
- When Stryker, and Sabertooth capture Scott in the school Stryker says "All that is left is Logan", but after that in New Orleans Sabertooth is seen taking blood from John Wraith. So Logan wasn't the last one. (IMDB) This may be because Wraith's power may have been considered an extra bonus that could be retrieved if the opportunity arose. Stryker may not have expected to be able to catch Wraith because while he can track and restrain Logan, Wraith can teleport away at any time as long as he is awake. Also, Logan was willing to undergo the procedure (which was secretly a test to see if Deadpool would survive the procedure) because he wanted revenge for Kayla's death, whilst Wraith is ashamed of what he has done with his powers and would not willingly use them to help create a super-weapon.
- It is established that Logan was born with healing ability and his bone claws. Later the admantium he was injected with got bonded to them and the rest of his bones, and became his metal claws. So Weapon XI should have only gotten his healing ability and his bone claws, not admantium ones. (IMDB) Deadpool would have been given the same procedure as Logan, as indicated by the fact that Logan was just a test to see if Deadpool would survive said procedure.
- If Wolverine's skeleton is coated with adamantium then the bullet's fired into his skull should not have entered his brain giving him the amnesia. (IMDB) The bullets were made of adamantium (this explains why Stryker was determined to use these bullets and not any weapon, and why they were kept in a special box because adamantium is very rare and therefore expensive), so they would punched right through the thin layer on Logan's skull.
- When Wolverine leaves Gambit's plane, he takes off his jacket before jumping out. He doesn't leave the island with Gambit, and therefore never gets his jacket back. But, in X-Men, he still has the jacket. (IMDB) With a 17 year gap between this movie and the first X-Men, it's possible he gets his jacket back, but as yet it's not explained how.
- When Wolverine discovers Silver Fox during her faked death, she is laying in a pool of blood and her clothes are ripped and bloody, implying that she died at the claws of Sabretooth. Later, they explain that she faked her own death by taking some sort of drug to make her appear chemically dead. If she just took a drug to create the illusion of death, then she didn't need to suffer any real wounds to fake it. (IMDB) When Wolverine discovers her body and assumes she's been killed by Sabretooth's claws, wouldn't he have noticed that physically she didn't actually have a wound on her entire body and become suspicious that she actually wasn't dead? Also, Wolverine has an extremely advanced sense of smell. He should have been able to tell she hadn't been freshly killed. Even if it was her blood that had been collected earlier, he should have been able to tell it wasn't fresh. (This could have been done on purpose to illustrate Logan's unfortunate tendency to be blinded by his overwhelming rage. The tremendous level of stress he would have gone through during the entire ordeal would have been staggering. Since he's also not one to sit around and wait he may have left her there and gone off to avenge her. There's the possibility that Sabretooth was very aware of Wolverine's sensory capabilities and knew how to counter them, but they didn't go into it.)
- After the operation that Logan undergoes it's shown that he is dead, and in the X-ray you can clearly see his throat moving. (IMDB) This could also be seen as a sign that he is still alive, which is confirmed moments later as he emerges from the tank.
- Jason Stryker appears to be younger than Cyclops in this movie and yet seems older in X2. (IMDB) It is entirely possible that by the time the events of X2 take place, Jason has been through so much mistreatment at his father's hands that he is prematurely aged.
- In the finale, the mutants who will become the first generation of students for Xavier's School are freed by Wolverine. One might expect that the students to mention the grizzled, hairy rescuer with long metal claws in his hands, or that their psychic mentor might pick up on it. Cyclops is the only exception, as he was blind throughout that sequence. Yet when Wolverine reaches Xavier's School in X-Men movie, he is a complete mystery to everybody. (IMDB) None of the children saved from the prison become an X-Man with the exception of Scott Summers/Cyclops, who didn't see Logan/Wolverine save the children from the prison.
- The subtitles say that Kayla's death takes place 5 years after the breakup, yet when Logan screams at Stryker in the hospital, he says its been 6 years. When I saw the film on TV recently, the caption after the scene when Logan quits read ‘SIX YEARS LATER’.
- In one of the beginning scenes when they are all aboard the small, corporate jet, they are pulling manoeuvres that well exceed the maximum load factor of any passenger jet aircraft. Bolt could be using his abilities to keep the aircraft intact, as well as remotely operating the controls.
- When Logan first enters the water for the adamantium grafting, he is wearing boxer shorts. When he escapes, he is naked. The reason he was naked when he escapes was because he wasn't in fact wearing boxer shorts, they strapped him in above his pelvis region, which in turn made it look like he was wearing shorts. But if you watch closely, the shorts are actually a form of restraint.
- In the scene (after the barn was destroyed and wolverine got away with bike) where wolverine is being hunted by a helicopter he is approaching two military humvee's. First is ripped by his claws and when he approaches second vehicle you can see how he grabs the handles of the vehicles and gets on it. Illogical thing here is that they move to each other but he grabs the handles as he would grab them like they stand still or moving in parallel. [There is no way to grab the handle that would be impossible to achieve while moving in the opposite direction of the vehicle. Corrected by Phixius
- In the scene where Stryker describes his last ditch option for Wolverine he intends to shoot Wolverine in the head with an Adamantium bullet. The background on Admantium in the movies (and comic books): Adamantium is a complicated alloy that may only be worked in its liquid form. Once it has hardened it is virtually impossible to destroy, and absolutely impossible to manipulate through modern machining techniques (e.g. milling, lathe, or any other machine shop process.) On fire arm physics: firing a bullet through a modern firearm causes the bullet in question to compress to the slightly smaller diameter of the barrel. The rifling inside the barrel imparts spin to the bullet, allowing for a stable trajectory; in essence you hit what the barrel is aimed at. These two facts cause the error. An Adamantium bullet fired through a conventional gun would cause the barrel to explode because the bullet cannot compress. An Admantium bullet fired through a gun with an Admantuim barrel would be the quintessential irresistible force meeting an immovable object because the barrel cannot expand, and the bullet cannot compress. The result of this would normally be an explosion, however due to the near indestructibility of the metal in question I do not know the likely result of such an occurance. The physics do not compute. So they made the bullet a little smaller knowing that it would not compress. It might not be as stable a trajectory, but if engineered to comic book physics levels it would serve its purpose. Corrected by BocaDavie
- When Wolverine leaves one of the compounds, before he slashes through the door with both hands, creating an "X" in the door; his hair is all wet and once he goes through the door his hair is completely dry. [It has cut to his escape when he goes through the door. We don't know how long he's been running between those two shots. Also, he was just injected with molten metal, so his body temperature was over 300 degrees upon completion. That could have dried his hair relatively quickly. Corrected by MasterOfAll
- The adamantium chamber is totally different than the one from x2, even though it is supposed to be the same, as are the flashbacks and operation procedure. [More than a decade has passed between Wolverine and X2. Stryker could have easily changed the layout of the facility in that time. The discrepancy between the flashbacks and how everything actually happened is also not a valid mistake, as the flashbacks occur in Wolverine's amnesiac mind.] Corrected by S. Ha
- When "New" Wolverine breaks out of the dam, after he was soaked in water, he comes out perfectly dry and hair neatly styled. [The is no scene of him coming out of the water. The next time we see/visibly him is when is is hiding in the barn. And when we do, he is not dry at all. He is soaked from (most likely) sweat from his run. As for the styled hair, it is acceptable deliberate choice of the film makers to maintain the look of the character.] Corrected by XIII
- When X-factor is in the elevator, Deadpool's two swords are in a holster strapped to his back, but in the next shot one of his swords is instantly out of the holster. ["Instantly" is an over-exaggeration. When the elevator reaches the top floor, Wade says "Its time to go to work". The swords are still in their scabbards and the elevators doors are not open yet. When they do open, we see Wade with his hands on his swords and he unsheathes them as the door open. He is obviously highly skilled swordsman and as such would not require much time (milliseconds) to unsheathe his swords.] Corrected by XIII
- After Logan and Victor are busted in Vietnam, we move to "6 years later" and we experience the rest of the film. The Vietnam war ended April 30th, 1975, which means that the latest that this film could have taken place was 1981. In addition, The Three Mile Island accident occured in 1979. However, the Army in the film is regularly using Humvees, which did not enter into production until 1984. [Wrong assumptions. The "six years" is from the time Wolverine quits the group. Not their "execution". It is never made known how long the team has been in operation. But it is long enough to fill in the gaps. It is hinted that there would be a few years between this movie and first X-men movie. The age of Scott Somers (Cyclops) as a gauge. Putting the movie set in the late 90s (at the latest).] Corrected by XIII
- In the scene where Logan's skeleton is bonded with the adamantium, his x-ray shows that his teeth are together, but how can they be when he has a breathing device in his mouth? [In one of the flashes of the procedure, there is a cut of the x-ray where Logan's jaw is open, likely with the breathing apparatus in his mouth, and then they show it closing shut, biting through the rubber, to show just how excruciating the bonding is.]
- When Logan stops Victor from killing someone at the camp in Africa, he is holding his wrist. When he is looking at Victor with his back towards camera, you can see his claws out. However, when it shows him face on, they are gone. [I just watched this scene in regular and slow motion. Victor has his claws out the entire time and Logan never has his out. Victor's claws curl in and combined with his fingers also curling in, it gives the appearance that the claws are missing, but they are there the entire time.] Corrected by Shannon Jackson
- Kayla drives Logan to work in Blue car, than drives it to the school. Later, we see Logan pick her up from work in the same car. [The scenes take place over different days. The El Camino can be seen in the second scene at the logging camp (not the first scene where she drops him off) before Logan picks her up from work, meaning he was using the car that day.] Corrected by rswarrior
- When Wolverine wakes out on Silver Fox , Stryker and Sabretooth at the nuclear plant, he is wearing his white undershirt with a red button-down shirt over it with the sleeves rolled up. A second later he hears Silver Fox scream and he rushes back in, but the red shirt is gone. [He had plenty of time to remove the shirt before going back in. Just because they didn't show it happening doesn't mean that it didn't.] Corrected by Shannon Jackson
- In the second X-men movie Logan is shot to the head by a police with a normal gun. It penetrate his skull and he falls to the ground. Later the bullet grows out from his head. In Wolverine the only way to penetrate his skull is by an adamantium bullet. Which is a obvious error. How could he be immune against regular bullets in wolverine but not in X-men. It's pretty obvious it makes no sense. They had to do it that way to make the story work so Logan could loose his memory. Thou he should have lost his memory even in X-men 2. [The bullet in X2 doesn't penetrate his skull, just his skin, which is why it pops out when he heals.] Corrected by Xofer
- When Weapon XI hits Sabertooth with the optic blast, there is no damage whatsoever to his clothes and they remain intact when they shouldn't. Weapon XI optic blast is not a concussive force but instead is a direct result of Cyclops power that generate heat, as demostrated when Cyclops accidental "fires" his power at his school and at the guards on 3 Mile Island, there are molten edges around the blast areas which actually are shown dripping or still red hot. Additionally, when Weapon XI "fires" at Wolverine and Sabertooth, the skin around his eyes actually get burnt black due to the heat. [Scott has no control over his blasts without the visor he recieves later in life, so the molten edges are because his blasts are far more powerful. It has been shown in many adaptations and even the comics that it is only a concussive force, this is why there is no damage at all to Sabretooth's clothes. Weapon XI's eyes may turn black due to the fact that he is not fully capable to handle the blasts.] Corrected by MasterOfAll
- The events at the end of this film are supposed to have happened at Three Mile Island, which occurred in 1979. Yet in X-Men, Professor X says it's been "fifteen years since your memory loss". X-Men takes place in the "near future" and was released in 2000. [Perhaps because of Wolverines healing factor. Professor X could not get an exact date. Also, we dont know what else Wolverine has been through before he met the Professor.]
- When Wolverine is checking out his new adamantium claws in the bathroom of the old couple's home, sparks fly out as he keeps clashing the claws together. Technically, a spark is a small fragment of a burning substance thrown out by burning material or by friction. In this case this would not be possible as adamantium is supposedly indestructible, so sparks would not come out. [Adamantium is not indestructible - if it were, it could not have been rendered molten to embed into Logan's skeleton. It's simply an incredibly hard substance, far harder than any known real-world material, and therefore could potentially be damaged by a similarly hard substance. Rubbing his claws together would produce sparks.] Corrected by Tailkinker
- In the fight sequence between Wolverine and Deadpool, Deadpool slices and stabs Wolverine several times. However for the rest of the film, there are no holes or torn sections of his vest whatsoever. Surely Wolverine's vest cannot heal like him. Similarly when Deadpool hits Sabertooth with the optic blast, there is no damage whatsoever to his clothes and they remain intact. [The optic blast has been shown as a concussive force, not a heat source, so there would be no damage to Sabretooth's clothes.]
- When Zero has his first fight shown, he is using un-silenced weapons, yet the sounds of his gun shots are silenced. [Assuming that the scene in question is when the team attacks the compound early in the movie. During the entire sequence, whenever Zero uses his weapons "big bangs" can be heard loud and clear indicated that the guns are not silenced and never shown or heard to be.] Corrected by XIII
- During the fight on top of the cooling tower, near the end of the film, there is one sequence when Weapon XI rushes at Wolverine and Sabretooth, who are standing back to back, and jumps over them. The overhead shot shows him jump over Sabretooth first, yet he lands in front of Sabretooth. [Not necessarily a mistake. At this point we already know that Weapon X1 can teleport. He is just using it to his advantage to confuse and disorientate his opponents during the fight.] Corrected by XIII
- When Wolverine's team is in the elevator, Deadpool says it's time to go to work and both of his swords are on his back. In the next shot the sword near Deadpool's right shoulder is gone, but then the sword is back on his back. [That is just something about how his costume was made, the right sword keeps slipping behind his head. It wasn't an mistake, just reality.]
- In the scene where Stryker tracks Logan out to the logging field and goes to meet with him, Logan's cigar changes length almost every time the camera cuts to him - getting alternately longer and shorter throughout their conversation. [It's not changing length, its just somewhat of an effect of the camera angle. The cigar is a prop, the same size the entire time until Zero shoots it in half.]
- When Victor holds Wolverine's "resurrected" wife in one hand around her neck, you can see the wires that hold her up when he throws her to the ground. [This mistake is not in the final version of the movie. Mistakes in the "workprint" version of the movie are not valid.] Corrected by XIII
- At the end, when Styker points the gun at the wounded Kayla - and then at himself - she's not in any danger. It's a six-shot revolver, and he's already spent the six bullets on Wolverine. [People do not count spent bullets in a situation like that. You still have a gun pointed at you.] Corrected by Knever
- After Wolverine knocks out Victor, after the fight at 3-Mile Island where the children are being held, Silverfox starts to talk to Wolverine. While Wolverine has his head turned looking over his shoulder at her, you can see the shadow of a boom microphone or some other piece of equipment on his shoulder. [Unless we know for certain what the source of the shadow is, this is not an error. There was, to my recollection, a large amount of infrastructure in the facility that could easily cast shadows on room occupants.] Corrected by Watchful
- [Spoiler] Wolverine's wife's death is faked with the use of hydrochlorothiazide. That's a real drug, but it's just a diuretic. It won't slow the heart, it may actually speed it up by lowering blood pressure. All it's going to do is make you urinate. [Since she has Mutant physiology, a seemingly harmless drug could affect her body differently; there just isn't enough information to make this claim.]
- After Victor Creed 'kills' Silverfox it shows Wolverine bury and mourn her before joining the Weapon X program. This would be fatal to her if she was just faking her death. [Pretty safe bet that they would have thought of that - this has, after all, been carefully planned out. For Logan's enhanced senses to be fooled, her metabolism has to have been slowed dramatically, almost to the point of stopping, effectively putting her in hibernation, which would allow her to survive a brief period of burial. As long as Stryker's team got to her fairly swiftly after Logan departed, she would survive the ordeal with no lasting effect.] Corrected by Tailkinker
- After 'Jimmy' and Victor are busted in Vietnam, we move to "6 years later" and we experience the rest of the film. The Vietnam war ended April 30th, 1975, which means that the latest that this film could have taken place was 1981. However the Army in the film was regularly using Humvees, which did not enter into production until 1984. Also, Scott Summers was a teen in this film, but in X-1, he was a twenty-something and it was released in 2000 with the tagline "in the near future." So apparently Scott aged about 10 years in at least 20. [Firstly this submission lists two different mistakes and should be separated as such. It was also never stated in the first X-Men film that Cyclops was in his twenties. He could very well have been in his thirties and aged appropriately.] Corrected by S. Ha
- It is stated that the only thing which will penetrate Logan's adamantium skeleton is an adamantium bullet. Following this logic, Logan's adamantium claws should cut through Deadpool's arm blades, or vice versa. [A bullet travelling at high speeds would behave very differently than a blade, even of the same material.] Corrected by Knever
- In the scene when Wolverine and Sabretooth are fighting outside the bar by a digger and a pile of logs, Sabretooth stands on Wolverine's 'bone claws' and snaps off the end of one of them. However, when Wolverine's bones have been covered in adamantium and he brings them out, they are full and have had no discernible damage to them. [His bones healed, regrowing his claws.] Corrected by Tailkinker C
- The blades Weapon XI wields are nearly the full length of the arm. If this were true, he would not be able bend at the elbows. [Weapon XI has multiple powers from multiple mutants. Theres no telling what his blades do when retracted.] Corrected by dablues7
- The opening shot establishes the location as 1845 Northwest Territories, Canada. Canada did not become a country until 1867. Even then, the NWT was owned by the Hudson Bay company. [The name Canada was used for the area as far back as the middle of the 16th Century, long before the country of that name was founded. The usage is historically accurate.] Corrected by Tailkinker
- While Scott Summers is blinded in the "new" Wolverine movie, there is no mention of Scott's having anything to do with Weapon X in X-Men 1 and 2. In fact if all those students go to the Xavier Institute then Emma Frost, Quicksilver, and several other mutants would have appeared in X1 and X2, but no mention of there being other mutants besides Jean and Scott being at the school. [The stuff that happened to Scott was twenty years previously - why would they mention it? And the other mutants rescued by Xavier in this film could easily have chosen to leave the school in the intervening time, while Cyclops stayed on as a teacher and X-Man.] Corrected by Tailkinker
- Wolverine's tags are different to the ones seen in X-Men and X-Men 2, when they are supposed to be the same tags. [We actually don't know that they are the very same tags. He could have had replacements made at some point. ] Corrected by Twotall
- When relaxing in his cabin, Wolverine is shown drinking a long-neck Budweiser. Long-neck bottles were not allowed in Canada in the 70s, they were short-neck ("stubbies"). Nobody was producing Bud under license at that time, either. [He could have smuggled them in from the US somehow. Unless we actually seem him purchasing the bottles, there's no real mistake.]
- Stryker shoots Logan with the adamantium bullets to erase his memory, but in "X-Men" the scans of Wolverine showed no holes or damage to his skull. While he's got a healing factor for his natural bones/organs, there's no way for him to regenerate the adamantium covering his skeleton. [As shown in the movie, his skeleton is not just covered in adamantium, the metal is actually bonded to his bones, and a part of him. So when his bones regenerated, it is not unlikely that the edges of the holes in his skull was bent back into shape and re-bonded.] Corrected by Twotall
- In many of the official trailers for this film (whether the teasers or the theatrical trailer itself) we are given glimpses of Lt. Col. Stryker's Class-A uniform. On the left shoulder, above the unit patch, he wears both a Ranger tab and an Airborne tab. This is incorrect and against uniform regulations (both now and decades ago, when the tabs were created along with those respective units). A soldier wears either the Ranger OR Airborne tab, but never both at once. If the Airborne tab is worn, it is understood that the soldier has passed Ranger school and thusly earned a Ranger tab to begin with. If only the Ranger tab is worn, this means that while the soldier passed Ranger school, he is not Airborne qualified (yet). [This is not correct; the tabs are worn concurrently all the time, and a soldier can be Airborne-qualified without being Ranger-qualified and vice-versa.]
- In the final scenes, Wolverine takes off the jacket the old couple gave him. He later escapes the island in his undershirt. However, the jacket reappears in X-Men 1. We see him get up and start to leave, but we never actually see him get off the island; he likely picked it up before he left. Corrected by Xofer
Mistakes from leaked version onlyEdit
- The mistake is in the scene where Stryker's crew obtains the meteorite souvenir from the desk of some Nigerian fellow on the top floor of a military building. Just after Reynolds' finishes his final jump but before he relaxes and stands up normally again and says: "Okay, people are dead", you can see the cables coming up from his back, which allow him to do the Matrix-style jumping. There's a cut to the Nigerian hiding behind his desk, before coming back to Reynolds and the cables have disappeared. [I could not see any wires. There are the two scabbards to hold the swords, that is all. You likely saw this in the online leaked unedited version, so not a valid mistake. ] Corrected by XIII
- In the scene where they are coming up in the elevator and Ryan Reynolds does his thing and does a spin in the air, you can see the harness strings on his shoulders when he lands and is face on to the camera. [These are only seen on the leaked version not the theatrical release, thus not a mistake.]
- When the soldiers are in Nigeria and Wade exit the elevator to attack all of henchmen with his swords, while jumping high the ropes are seen on Reynold's back that lift him. [Ummm, maybe you should actually watch the movie at the cinema instead of the unfinished version circling the net?]
