Corrected entry: In the scene in the church where Daredevil and Bullseye fight, they do various abuse to the church organ. Organ pipes are most often made of a rather soft lead/tin alloy that simply would not stand the beating, banging and climbing they are subjected to.

Corrected entry: Alex Summers, AKA Havok, is the younger brother of Scott Summers [Cyclops] and is a teenager in the film. Yet in the 90s, when the first X-men was set, Scott was still a teenager when the Cuban missile crisis occurred in 1962, so 30 years between events.

Corrected entry: When the rest of the world finally starts seeing the lights in the sky, there is not any mention for the remainder of the movie of any military presence or actions being taken against the aliens. Given how simple the aliens are to defeat with water and physical violence this doesn't make sense, especially given the technology and weapons we have at our disposal.

Corrected entry: Discussing Detective Kelly's death, the two FBI agents assert that John Kramer's 'apprentice' Amanda could not have lifted Kelly in to her trap. However, this scene takes place before the bodies of Kramer and Amanda have been discovered. Therefore this announcement of Amanda's involvement comes before the authorities have any evidence of her involvement. This inconsistency is masked by the fact that the film begins with a 'flashforward' to Kramer's autopsy; however the rest of the film's action takes place prior to the autopsy and therefore prior to the discovery of Amanda's role.

Corrected entry: After revealing the FBI roots of the operation, the 3 main heroes decide to cancel the Vilena mission on the basis that they all will be killed afterwards before having any chance to enjoy the money. However, they still complete the mission and apparently, receive the money, since Sly gives account details to the girl.

Corrected entry: Nice pun before the fight in the burning building (German dub): Spidey's "It's you who's out, Gobbie. Out of your mind" is dubbed as "Du bist es der verloren hat, Koblöd. Und zwar Deinen Verstand." "Goblin" is correctly translated to "Kobold" in the subtitles of my edition (done by SDI media group) though. (01:20:50)

Corrected entry: 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.

Corrected entry: 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.

Corrected entry: When Carson Wells spots the money briefcase from the bridge, it is in the bright sunlight. In the next scene we see him returning to his hotel at night, so obviously at least five hours have passed. We know that Wells did not retrieve the money, since Moss retrieves it later. It seems very unlikely that Wells would have just left the money on the riverbank after discovering where it was.
