Psychic Professor Xavier leads a school of skilled mutants called X-Men, a peacekeeping force to safeguard the world against a race of genetically mutated humans known as Homo Sapiens Superior. However, Magneto, a mutant with a powerful magnetic charge, has also begun to organize a team to strike first against what he believes to be a threat from humanity. When he kidnaps Rogue from the X-Men's compound, Xavier and his forces must rescue her, even as they continue to vie with Magneto for the fearsomely strong mutant battler Wolverine. Both Xavier and Magneto also have to contend with Senator Kelly, a heartless political leader who wants a final solution against mutants on both sides.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When Wolverine is talking to Rogue on the train, she begins to cry and he pulls her head to his chest. In one scene you can see his lips moving (speaking the next line) without sound, until the shot changes and he speaks the line in sync.

Character Error
Marie, in her first scene, points to a map and says "Niagara Falls" which is on the New York-Ontario border but her finger is touching the Minnesota-Wisconsin border.

Character Error
During the Statue of Liberty fight, Mystique kicks Wolverine in the side of his head. Seeing as Wolverine's skeleton is laced with adamantium, it should have broken her foot. Yet, she shows no signs of injury or pain from it.

In early scenes the filmmakers went to some effort to make Cyclops appear taller than Wolverine, but about half way through the film they just stopped, and suddenly Wolverine appears considerably taller than Cyclops (consistent with the difference in height of the actors themselves).

Between when Cyclops blows open a door in the Statue of Liberty, and when he sees Jean in peril, he gains and loses a pair of gloves between shots.

Senator Kelly boards a helicopter that is dark green and white in color with the Presidential Seal and the "United States of America" printed on the side. After they take off, the helicopter is blue and white and does not have the Seal nor the U.S. logo on it.

When Storm and Cyclops stop Sabretooth at the beginning of the film, Cyclops places his hand on the visor to use his beam. In the next shot the beam is seen but both his hands are down, away from the visor.

Crew/Equipment Visible
The camera is visible in Cyclops' glasses when he is in Logan's room and says, "Oh, and Logan: stay away from my girl."

Factual Mistake
The Nazi Schutz-Staffel guards are wearing steel helmets. These were only used in combat situations, which did not include taking in and sorting victims for genocide. Camp guards wore "garrison caps" instead.

Factual Mistake
The Nazis separated the men from the women the minute they stepped off the train once they arrived at a concentration camp. Erik and his father would have been separated from his mother long before they made it as far as they did in the film.

When Wolverine hits the fallen tree, he and Rogue lunge forward before hitting the tree. Hitting the tree, Wolverine goes flying through the windshield and you can see the whole windshield is flying out but looking back at Rogue, it is back but cracked. In a real collision, he would have just hit the steering wheel and windshield and not fly through the windshield that far. He would need to be sitting on top of the car in order to fly out of the car that far when hitting the tree. Lastly, when wolverine is told to wear a seat belt, they are not moving very fast but when they hit the tree, Wolverine flies out the window a distance one would need to be going over 100 to do so. If he WAS moving fast enough the whole front end of the truck would be crushed.

Revealing Mistakes
In the train station, as Sabretooth is coming up behind Storm at the ticket window, he throws the guy behind her out of the way. The line attached to the stuntman is visible in this shot as he is yanked out of the way.
The line, "What do they call you, 'Wheels'?'" was improvised by Hugh Jackman (the scripted line was, "What do they call you, Baldie?")

In order to get into character, Hugh Jackman would take ice cold showers every morning of filming. He figured that this mindset, wanting to scream and lash out at something, but having to hold it in, was the mentality that Wolverine is in constantly. He then made cold showers his Wolverine preparation routine for each movie featuring the character.

Sir Ian McKellen originally had to decline the role of Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings, because he had already accepted the role of Magneto. He spoke to Director Bryan Singer about his interest in making The Lord of the Rings, and Singer agreed to rearrange this movie's shooting schedule,

A chess master had to come in to teach Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen how to play chess, since neither of them knew how.
