So how were they planning on decapitating a man whose spine is made of a metal they themselves proclaim unbreakable anyway.

it's in the past, based on the events of x1, which was set in an undetermined point in the future

if it is in fact give a set time (which no real time line was stated, only certain events might of implied one) then that does screw with the time of continues of the original series, an I guess would be a Plot hole

which is why I'd prefer to not attach an exact date to the events

Again, fictional world, fictional timeline, unless it was actually stated with in the movie itself, it can be ignored...

Sabretooth is a bad guy, Wolverine is a good guy despite his berzerker rages. Who would you trust, the guy who killed his CO or the guy who tried to stop him from killing the CO?

true, but he only did so because (a) he enjoyed what he was doing and (b) because he wanted to become more powerful. Again, would you want to give someone like Sabretooth an unbreakable adamantium skeleton?

Who's head are we talking about? Deadpool, I assume?

Because if that's who we're talking about, it's clearly stated in the movie that the bonding process is not complete. So he wouldn't have full adamantium, if any. Dr. Frost tells Stryker that it will be a "few hours" before he is ready, and this is just as Logan is breaking into the complex.

Deadpool was given Logan's regenerating power. In the comics, I think it might even be more powerful than Logan's, in terms of what Deadpool can regenerate from.

Wolverine reflecting (with his claws of course) the beam that "Deadpoop" acquired from Scott made this issue even more annoying than it already was.


This bothered me, especially because the o-so-mighty Wolverine can now reflect it off of his claws, my eyes rolled the whole scene

I'm also wondering why Wolverine is the age he is.
I assume his healing factor keeps him the same age.
But if his healing factor is part of his mutation and mutations manifest at puberty, then how come he's not 13 years old?
Why did the aging process seem to stop around 30?

Here's mine:

*Gambit is knocked out by Logan in the alley, and then magically appears at the other end of town running on the rooftops as he helicopters down to some kinetic action. That was a terrible continuity error.

Also, Agent Zero is somehow able to do a forward backflip over a 15 ft gate and can jump about 20 ft off a hill into a helicopter.

I just saw X2 again, and Stryker tells Wolverine it's been 15 years. Now, no exact date or year is given unless I'm wrong, but I guess we can determine from the last war we seen being I forget that he and Victor were in, and go by that year of whatever the war is, which is when he and Victor joinedTeam X, and it then saying six years later from when he left Team X, we may have a pretty close date to guess.

So they didn't give Agent Zero, a dude whose power is shooting really well, the MAGIC BULLETS that can actually harm Logan. Why?

Same reason it does it in the comics.

I don't think he was knocked out. Yeah adamantium elbow to the face hit him, but Wolverine probably held back on the impact to just shut him up. Gambit, thinking, "Ouch that hurt, Victor and this fellow will fight, I will go to the roof and do staff slam to them." Now how is it he got to the roof? Well he can jump high with his ability, jamming staff to the ground so he probably did that.

That's possible but I really really think that the director just screwed up here.

Yes I do agree he should have handled that differently, but I didn't mind.

That too. Also, it's obvious that bullets have no effect on Wolverine so why do they keep trying to shoot him when he's on the motorcycle? Stryker should've given Agent Zero the gun when he sent him to track down Wolverine.

And Agent Zero is the most modern looking dude in the whole movie. I didn't buy that he was from the 70s/80s at all.
