Action films will often have a “do it or you die” threat, normally involving the notionally good character having to threaten one of the baddies. The baddie fairly reliably then decides that they’re not afraid to die.
What happens next is normally that the good character had a moment of revert before killing the person anyway. They then struggle to do whatever it was by themselves, just at the last minute.
This seems pointless. There is a much more obvious and useful route that could be tried in these situations first:
Why do the good characters not start with major wounds to extremities (shots to legs, cutting off fingers, etc)?
