I don't like torture scenes in movies, even if they are staged but one of my all time favorites was when Burgess Merideth got his fingers smashed with a hammer because he would not tell the bad guys where Steven Segal was but old Steve fixed them in the end. I hear he's a cop in Indiana now. Always liked his flicks, people got really screwed up when he was around. Chop chop, dice dice.
I don't have much compassion for a'holes (pardon my french) that prey on defenseless children. I'd have no issued smashing their fingers, one at a time with a hammer. Of course with a nice pause in between to let the pain settle in.
