This movie moves way to fast to keep up with what's going on. It doesn't help either that sometimes it's impossible to understand what the characters are saying. It almost feels like there should be subtitles down the bottom. Basically, as far as I can tell anyway, the story moves from one character to another and shows their involvement in the overall plot. Then at the end it tries to explain itself, but by then the audience is already so lost as to what's going on that it's pretty pointless anyway. It also seemed as if the writers really believed that massive shootouts in the middle of the city still happened every 5 minutes and that no one took any notice as if it was an everyday occurrence. It really seemed as if they believed those scenes to actually be possible in todays world.
Not one that's going to be remembered as great by any stretch of the imagination. There isn't a type of person in existence who would enjoy this film, and that probably includes you so stay away.
