It's like a ripoff of a Guy Ritchie ripoff of a Tarantino film. For example, it will have a comedic relief scene with extreme violence while also having having a dramatic back story with violence. So violence and extreme violence is played as comedic relief; and important, serious character development. It doesn't work.Meant to start that over the wknd and then saw your post. It has been put on hiatus for now.
They also slowly reveal the backstories of the main characters, which is almost always problematic. Up should be required viewing for all directors. A 3 minute musical montage at the beginning of the movie was all it took to make you empathize with the old man.
