I wanted Sarah’s relationship with Tony to somewhat accurately reflect an abusive relationship. I hate in movies when the guy is just an asshole constantly. If that were the case, even the most beaten down woman would leave, but it isn’t all bad, it’s just NET bad. Tony does care about Sarah and Cameron, just not as much as he cares about himself. And most of what we see from him is under high stress, where any of us would do or say things that we wish we hadn’t.

I’m not looking to sympathize the character. I’m looking to humanize him. Villains with the motivation “because he’s evil” never make memorable stories
