Adamantium Bullets Cause Amnesia (X-Men Origins: Wolverine)
No film in the X-Men canon is more indefensible than X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It’s a complete mess of bad writing, lazy filmmaking, and almost no respect for the intelligence of the fans. Arguably the dumbest moment in the entire film comes when Danny Huston’s William Stryker loads adamantium bullets into a revolver, and proceeds to shoot Logan in the head with the full intention of wiping his memories clean... becuase comic books. By itself, this actually could have been a cool moment – if the amnesia was an unintended side effect of Stryker’s attempt to kill Wolverine. Instead, we’re treated to terribly forced exposition where Stryker bluntly states that he’s trying to induce amnesia because he isn’t sure whether or not he can actually kill Wolverine. We get it, this is a prequel to a movie series that we all love; you don’t need to beat us over the head with that fact.
