Scanners (1981)

Corrected entry: In the opening scene where Cameron Vale gets his hand shot with a tranquilizer dart, he fails to react like anyone else would: pull that dart off immediately. He just watches it sticking out of his hand for a minute or so before passing out.


Correction: He is most likely in shock, which causes your muscles to freeze up, and can also prevents you from making rational decisions. Much like a "deer in the headlights" scenario, where the animal does not instinctively move, but rather stands still in the path of a car.
