One Thing that Really Bothered Me About Origin

#1 Edited by RJMooreII (205 posts) - - Show Bio

The dude at the end shoots an adamantium bullet through an adamantium skull. But in order to do that it would require enough energy to punch the bullet through the adamantium; I can attack an aluminum plate with a steel knife and I won't do jack because it doesn't have enough force. If that revolver had enough powder to punch an object through adamantium the revolver would have exploded and killed the dude holding it. 
 
Why did they even bother with it, anyways? Just shoot him in the eye!

@RJMooreII: Heh-heh, that entire movie was awful. And how does a bullet in the head auto-wipe your memory? Freaking stupid film.

@FadeToBlackBolt: Or shoot high explosive incindiary rounds directly into his eye? Then again, I don't understand why everyone doesn't just vaporize all of Wolverine's soft tissues. Even lamers like Pyro ought to be able to do that, if there were any justice in comic book physics.

@RJMooreII: Did the Adamantium bullet pierce the Adamantium skull? I thought it only made some sort of a dent.

@Edamame: Even that would have blown the gun up, or at least caused it to recoil so hard it turned his hand into mulch. It also isn't clear how that would be effective at mind-raping; not to mention the who obvious route of blowing through his eye or soft palate.

In that film, Emma Frost was Silver Fox's sister. LOL. Funny stuff.

It was just plain, old silliness. LOL

@Edamame:  Yeah... I noticed that...  I was pretty outraged.  Not only that but Emma using diamond form?  Yeeeaaah, because she totally could do that early on.

But the leaked one without the final special effects was hilarious
 
Frankly, I didn't like any of the X-Men movies. I hope Marvel drops them and reboots with their house company and makes movies that are actually about the X-Men, not SyFy channel knockoffs in black rubber suits.

@RJMooreII: They should make more animated X-Men films, in my opinion. Maybe an animated Age of Apocalypse film.

@Edamame: I agree, except I couldn't stand AoA. Of anything Marvel, I'd go for an Infinity Gem animated miniseries.

@Edamame:
I think they planned to use AoA storyline in the second season of Wolverine and X-Men. Too bad it was cancelled.

The Bullet hit the part of the brain that stored his memories, and to quote the movie "You can't grow back the memories"(not word for word, but something like that)....although in the comic where Nitro blows Wolverine up he grows back his brain, and did not come back with absolutely no memories.  Very bad movie, so many wholes, and slaps in the face of anyone who has ever read wolverine.

Yes, that is what they were planning.  It was calceled, nevertheless.

Seriously? Only one thing bothered you?

lmao the intro was good XD past that the movie just seems too cartoony like a parody of his origin. X2 did a much better origin for him if they simply based their movie off those flashbacks it would have been awesome.


That freakin bullet made no damn sense the writers simply wrote themselves into a corner and realized "hey we forgot to erase his memories lets give him brain damage.  But he has an adamantium coated skull. Oh I GOT IT we can use an adamantium bullet to dent his skull and magically erase his memories. GENIUS!!!!!!"
