Some movies keep their big reveals for the end of the movie. You do have a main character with psychological issues here and they are not hiding it. Fighting demons (not literally, although sometimes it may seem so on screen) is one thing, translating that drama onto screen another. It really is tough, especially when you consider the struggle the main character has to go through.
And the fact the viewer has to stay with him. It's not easy to like him all the time, but you understand where he is coming from. The neighborhood, the friends, the family, all that background gets covered. The movie does a really good job and the fight scenes are gritty and tough enough. It really is a movie that has quality and cares about its very broken protagonist ... do you care too?
