The film, while fascinatingly flawed, is undeniably exciting to watch.
In today's world with everyone having a 4K phone camera that make things look cinematic, our audiences aren't ignorant as they were decades ago with filmmaking. The way to capture their spirit and dollars is by immersing them with characters that are interesting and realistic, with just a burst of over-the-top.
