Breaking News

  2. Revealing mistake: When Wade Wilson is fighting the men in the diamond traffic operation headquarters - while he is spinning in the air - you can clearly see the wires holding him-up.
  3. Continuity: When Gambit knocks Logan through the wall of the bar in Louisiana, the hole changes size. One size when he makes it and another when Gambit comes through it into the alley.
  4. Continuity: The child actor playing young Logan has blue eyes - Hugh Jackman has brown eyes.
  5. Revealing mistake: In the bathroom scene you can plainly tell that Logan's knives are CGI.

  7. Continuity: The tank where Wolverine gets the Adamantium bounded to his skeleton is lit with blue light - in the first X Men movie the tank was lit with green light in flashback.
  8. Continuity: After revelations on Three Mile Island, Logan leaves in disgust only to rush back when he hears Silver Fox screaming, but then he appears without the shirt he left in.
