X-Men (2000)

Goofs (55)

  • Audio/visual unsynchronised

    (at around 44 mins) When Mystique as Bobby Drake (Shawn Ashmore) approaches Rogue to warn her away from the school, Rogue clearly mouths the word "Shawn" but her voice says "Bobby".

  • Audio/visual unsynchronised

    (at around 1h 30 mins) When Magneto tells Prof. Xavier that the plastic prison won't hold him and the war is coming, the shot from behind Magneto's head shows his mouth still moving, even though he has stopped speaking.

  • Continuity

    (at around 39 mins) When Wolverine accidentally stabs Rogue, his claws come out from the tops of his hands, the way they do in the comic series. In all other scenes, however, the claws appear from between the fingers.

  • Continuity

    (at around 1h 30 mins) When Xavier and Magneto are in the plastic prison, the chess pieces on the board change between shots after the guard comes in.

  • Continuity

    (at around 38 mins) When Rogue walks into Logan's room just before he stabs her, his sheets are pulled up to his armpits, but as she approaches the bed and the camera angle changes the sheets are about his waist.

  • Continuity

    (at around 1h 23 mins) When Wolverine is thrown off the head of Statue of Liberty, he stops himself by hanging on his claws; at that moment, they pierce through the head near Jean Gray and Cyclops who are trapped inside near the top. In one of the next shots we can see Wolverine hanging on his claws much lower in the head - somewhere around the ears and the chin of the Statue.

  • Continuity

    (at around 1h 30 mins) When Magneto concedes that he has been checkmated and knocks the king over, a pawn that was in the previous view of the chessboard is missing but the knight still holds it to checkmate.

  • Factual errors

    (at around 57 mins) In the sequence where Rogue is abducted and Magneto blackmails his way out, he telekinetically fires a police officer's pistol at his own face from a short distance, stopping the spinning bullet in mid-air without harming the man. He would not have been able to stop the non-metallic combustion gases though. From that short a distance, even blanks can severely hurt or kill people.

  • Incorrectly regarded as goofs

    (at around 40 mins) When Wolverine stabs Rogue, his claws go through the front and out the back. She heals herself using Wolverine's powers, but there is no blood on the front of her night gown and the fabric is still whole (where the claws went through). This is due to the fact that the "rating goal" for the film was set to PG-13, which means they can't show blood flow - and showing a shredded gown without blood would be odd.

  • Incorrectly regarded as goofs

    (at around 1h 16 mins) When Toad is struck by lightning, the lightning hits the pole first, and then electrocutes Toad. While the pole is grounded, there is enough power in a lightning strike that the field would still affect Toad (though not as visibly as shown). In addition, Storm does, after all, have some control over lightning.
