Typical 2000's Nic Cage Film
Film tries to be deep and clever with a "plot twist" that anyone with eyes sees coming from a mile away. Cliches of course abound, so expect to see all the generic quotes and tropes you've seen/ heard before. The only twist being that this film blurs the genres of films it steals it's quotes from.
All of this said is it a terrible film? No. It's ok. Just about. Watchable if you're not really paying attention.
Also, whatever you do, don't question the timelines, e.g. how a young adult can go to jail for 19 years but come out an old man.
Anyway, the terrible cliches, inconsistencies in timelines (forcibly injected so the characters fit the proper cliches), and a pretty average script let this film down.
