  • (at around 18 mins) Caliban likens his weakness to sunlight to the character of Nosferatu. However, in the film Nosferatu (1922) there is no character by that name; the vampire's name was actually "Count Orlok," with Nosferatu being his species. However this was intentional as the general audience will not know who "Count Orlok" is but will know that Nosferatu has to relate with Vampires. This would explain why Caliban burns when exposed to sunlight like a Vampire which Nosferatu also means.
  • (at around 8 mins) Early in the film, Pierce wears sunglasses in which the camera operator's reflection is visible throughout the scene.
  • (at around 1h 5 mins) In the RAM truck, the antenna of a Motorola production walkie talkie can be seen near the center console. This is very common for communicating with actors during driving scenes.
  • The movie is in 2029, the only vehicle that is showing as futuristic is the Chrysler 300C limo, all the other vehicles are of 2017. The cell phones would even be different.
  • In the fight scene at the end of the film during one shot of Logan running, his metal claws jerk up and down slightly out of place as his feet hit the ground, revealing that they are actually special effects appliances held in Hugh Jackman's hands and not fixed blades that extend from the character's skeleton.
  • While watching Shane (1953) Professor Xavier says he saw it when he was Laura's age. If true, then he would have been born in 1942. Since the movie is set in 2029, that makes him an octogenarian, not a nonagenarian like he corrected Pierce in Mexico.
  • At the beginning where Logan, Charles and Laura flee from Pierce the first time in their car, the roof window of Logan's car changes its state from open to close in several shots.
  • (at around 7 mins) When Pierce enters Logan's Chrysler, there was a lady visible through the windshield walking towards Logan's car. The scene focusses on Pierce in the backseat and after some time focusses on Logan in the driver's seat again. The same lady was seen at the same place at the same direction.
  • (at around 54 mins) When Xavier tells Laura that Shane (1953) (the Western they're watching on the hotel TV) is nearly a hundred years that is not quite true. As that movie came out in 1953, it would only be seventy-six-years old in 2029. Hence, the phrase "...almost eighty years old" would be more accurate.
  • Logan manages with great effort to stab the mercenaries during Xavier's seizure. But in X-Men 2 (2003) he can't withstand Xavier's telepathic attack.
  • (at around 1h 1 min) When the main characters are attacked in the casino hotel in Oklahoma City, Logan uses the elevator to return to their room to administer Prof. X's medicine. When Logan gets off the elevator the down button is clearly pressed but nobody is waiting in the hallway to get on.
  • In the initial fight scene, Logan gets shot with a shotgun. Although shot at with a gun, no additional wounds appear. Later, he is seen squeezing out bullets in the sink. Shotguns fire pellets, not bullets.
  • (at around 8 mins) During the first meeting between Logan and Pierce in Logan's Chrysler, Pierce leans in and says "I know what you're hiding, amigo," but his mouth doesn't move.
  • (at around 37 mins) In the first gun fight with Laura, the assault rifles have massive muzzle flash's despite being equipped with sound suppressors which not only suppress sound but also contain the muzzle flash.
  • When Logan and Charles watch the message from Gabriela left behind on her phone, they only manages to watch some of the clip before the phone shuts off due to low battery. Later on Logan manages to charge up the phone again and starts the video from where it was when it shut off, but we can clearly see by the time-bar on the lower part of the screen that it is the beginning of the video.
  • At the farmer's house after dinner, Charles addresses Logan as "Logan" although he had introduced himself to the family as "James." No one seems to notice.
  • (at around 3 mins) As the robbers in the opening fight scene run away toward their van you can see Logan's claws fade away rather than going back into his knuckles.
  • (at around 1h 1 min) During Xavier's seizure in the hotel, everyone is frozen in place by the assault. As Logan passes by the slot machines, one lady is looking around unaffected by the paralysis.
  • The lat/lon coordinates are in fact North Dakota, just south of the Canadian border, but it is an area that is flat as far as the eye can see, not the cliffs that we see in the movie.
  • (at around 1 min) During the opening scene where the men are attempting to steal the wheels from the limousine, we can hear the distinctive sound of an air-driven impact driver, as used in commercial tire shops. When we see the outside shot of the man actually removing the lug nuts, he is seen using a standard 4-way lug wrench, and no air tools or air lines are anywhere to be seen.
  • (at around 39 mins) When Logan escapes the smelting mill, the tires of the limo squeal as if on asphalt, but the ground is dirt.
  • (at around 12 mins) When Xavier falls out of his wheelchair, Patrick Stewart braces himself as he impacts the floor in a way that shows the actor is not really disabled.
  • (at around 45 mins) The video on Gabriela's mobile is quite nicely edited and narrated for supposedly being a series of underhand recordings. The voice over even extends over several scenes. Being on the run, Gabriela would hardly have time to do this - even if she had the skill, equipment and software to do it.
  • Despite being set more than a decade and a half into the future, clothing fashions resemble those of the 2010s. So do the hair styles and the foot wear.
  • There are no coniferous forests in North Dakota, especially along the North Dakota and Canada border. The terrain in that area is mostly deciduous forests or grasslands.
  • (at around 1h 15 mins) When Logan picks the Professor up in the Munsons' house Xavier is facing right but as he carries him up the stairs he is facing left.
  • (at around 39 mins) Logan and Charles are in the limo going to pick up Laura who is fighting Pierce's men and the police. As Logan is steering the car, there is a very brief shot of the backseat, and Laura is already sitting there.
  • (at around 9 mins) In Logan's limo, Pierce presents his business card in his left hand. In the next scene the business card is in his right hand, due to camera angles.
  • The price of the X-Men comic book was 40 cents, placing its publication to around 1979. But the comic books in the movie starred the "real-life" X-Men, including Wolverine, who didn't come into the public scene till 2000.
  • An adamantium bullet was shown to be able to cause significant damage to adamantium by ripping off half of X-24's skull while Wolverine and X-24 are unable to damage each other's skeletons with their own claws.
  • (at around 1h 40 mins) When Laura gets into the vehicle to drive while Logan was resting, she doesn't bother to adjust the seat. Considering the difference in height between her and Logan, there's no way they'd both be able to drive in the same seat position. Even sitting on the edge, her feet would barely touch the pedals.
  • (at around 39 mins) In the first car (black limousine) chase shoot-out, its windscreen and rear window bullet holes tallies constantly change: from shot holes to none to many and back inconsistently constantly. E.g. back window begins with three shot holes - then down to two, then five (at fence crash plus also at the later trade-in scene) then to none, then back to two - and sometimes also change locations: for the front windshield after two shots from fence entangled motorcyclist, there is none after escaping the compound up to approaching the train, then after, back to two and it goes on.
  • No one in the film seems worried about the future horrific problem with coating an adolescent's skeleton with adamantium; namely, the deadly trauma that will happen to 11-year-old Laura's body and adamantium-coated bones as she grows into adulthood. It's not explicitly stated Laura underwent the same adamantium-bonding that Logan endured; we only see her claws being worked on in Gabriela's video. This is consistent with the comics, in which only X-23's claws are adamantium and not her entire skeleton. Without a specific in-film statement otherwise, it's reasonable to assume the same is true here.

  • When Logan in nodding off while driving the Bronco, the gear selector can be seen through the windshield and it is in the "Park" position. The scene cuts to an interior shot and the selector is now in the "Drive" position. A moment later it is again in "Park" (the whole time the vehicle is in motion).
  • The newspaper Logan picks up says "Lack of Mutant births stump researchers", but "stump" should be "stumps".
  • The self-driving containers seem a good idea, especially in units of three to reduce air resistance - except their close coupling means they can't take corners.


  • (at around 2h 5 mins) At the final scene with Laura and Logan, one shot of Laura shows a tear rolling down her right cheek. The next shot her cheek is dry, and she has a dribble of snot from her nose. Then a third shot has the wet tear line back on her cheek and her nose is dry.
  • (at around 26 mins) In at least one shot (a medium shot from the front), Gabriela's dead body is seen breathing.
  • In the Xavier's hotel seizure scene, when Logan struggles to get back to the room killing off the mercenaries standing in his way, the mercenaries should drop down the moment they are killed (at least those stabbed in their heads), since their minds can no longer be affected by Xavier's abilities. Instead they remain paralyzed until prof. Xavier receives his injection.
  • (at around 2h) Towards the end of the movie Logan shoots Dr Rice with the gun in his extended right hand. In the next cut the gun is in his left extended hand.
  • (at around 28 mins) When Pierce comes to talk to Logan after returning from finding Gabriela murdered, Pierce reaches his mechanical hand forward and places it on Logan's shoulder. In the reflection of his sunglasses you can see his real hand wearing the green screen glove.
  • (at around 1h 55 mins) When the kids are being chased in the woods by the Reavers, Laura can be heard shouting: "¡Corred!" ("Run!"). This is how it's said in Spain (from where Dafne Keen learned to speak it), but since her character was raised in Mexico, she should have said "¡Corran!".
  • (at around 1h 2 mins) When Logan attacks the mercs who are trying to capture Charles Xavier, he clearly drives his claws through their brains. Since Charles' power over them is based on his telepathy, the destruction of their brains (or even serious damage caused to them) should have caused them to collapse as there was nothing left for Charles to control.
  • (at around 2h 5 mins) Logan's entire skeleton is made of adamantium, the hardest metal in the known universe which can only be damaged on a molecular level. Despite Logan's failing healing factor, he still could not have been impaled in the way that he was, due to his adamantium skeleton.
  • (at around 1h 23 mins) When Professor Charles Xavier was killed by X-24, Laura aka X-23 was supposed to know he is not the real Logan Wolverine by the body smell difference of the two person.
