I have a group of kids, one of whom is the eldest at ten and is the responsible one. They're on a quest to save the life of a baby from something that wants to kill it, and also wants to kill the main characters too, right? At the end, he's hanging from a ledge and begs for his life, the eldest picks up a rock and smacks him on the fingers. Is this too cruel? Also, the little evil creature reaches up to try and pull her down when she turns around (she turns around to pick up a rock) but she makes the choice to smack him in the fingers without knowing he was doing this, which is why I'm wondering if it's cruel. Also.....I get this heavy vibe that this scene is very.....hollywood? The creature runs at them from afar intending to spear the girl but gets knocked down by something introduced earlier in the story and ends up hanging on the ledge at their mercy. I get the feel this is going to come off as simply a movie cliche.
