(at around 22 mins) In the opening scene, due to the floor falling, Apocalypse and the mutant power transfer chamber are dropped for over 20 seconds; that fall time would mean they fell 1.2 km max. When Apocalypse is rejuvenated however the camera appears to show Apocalypse only a few meters below the top of the pyramid which itself appears to be extremely close to Earth's surface. However, when the sunlight strikes the cap, the light lines race down the ruins, reaching far below (hundreds, if not thousands of feet) below the cap to wake Apocalypse.
Errors in geography
(at around 1h 16 mins) When Quicksilver is running through the mansion saving all the students, he stops briefly to drink a soda that was left suspended in the air by the student he had just moved outside to safety. It is clearly shown that he can move faster than the force of gravity so this would be impossible because he would require gravity to cause the soda to pour out of the can and into his mouth, but because he is moving so fast, gravity would not have time to act and the soda (as he would perceive it) would remain virtually stationary in the air. He would have to pause long enough for gravity to take effect but in doing so he would most certainly be caught in the explosion.
Incorrectly regarded as goofs
(at around 30 mins) Since X: First Class (2011), many characters have barely aged despite the passage of 21 years. Some mutants have been confirmed in earlier movies to age slowly. While it is not clear why Moira MacTaggert should remain youthful, Charles remarks on this astounding fact, thereby acknowledging the problem, if not explaining it, within the story.
None of the plot-holes related to time lines on this page are relevant. X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) led to a new time-line being written. Which would most likely lead to causal effects that people wouldn't expect. Advancements in satellite technology, bands and film release dates changing and if there has been a great deal of battleground activities changes in nuclear programs. The premise of the previous movie was to rewrite time. So pointing out that things don't match up to how time was, is not a goof. It's effective and consistent with all causality theories.
(at around 2h 10 mins) Although Quicksilver wears an Atari shirt that is late 1990s/early 2000s design, he has been previously and purposefully dressed by producers in clothing from a later time period (see X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) and his Pink Floyd T-Shirt) in order to make him seem "ahead of his time"
Numerous characters in the movie come from other countries and speak other languages (Magneto's family is Polish, Nightcrawler comes from Germany) and these characters speak in their ethnic tongues, which is accurate. Yet said characters occasionally speak perfect English with no explanation. It is possible they learned English in schools as a second language, but they would not speak it this flawlessly.
When Apocalypse and Storm appear in Angel's hideout, he screams "Verpiss dich!" at them in German, which is the case for addressing a single person, when he should be saying "Verpisst euch!", the proper case when talking to a group of people. This is the most blatant mistake with all German characters. The others speak in a rather discernible English accent.
