The Wire Shield failing
Trying to cram so many things into one movie, is always a tough task. You may be able to forgive certain things (though a doll being thrown from a roof top in a "serious" movie should not be one of those things), especially if you consider the budget. But the issue is that someone thought, they could do a Sopranos/Shield/Wire type of movie. And the only things this achieves, is that the viewer will appreciate those shows even more.
You can't just take something that is great, kind of copy it and expect to have something great too. You can try obviously, there is no law against it, but most people will call you on that. The movie and the strange narrative is weak to say the least. Effects, settings and "actor" choices are not a top priority. The last 15 minutes that kind of explain what happens up til that point (you could actually just watch those, though you wouldn't be any wiser) is kind of mental in a bad sense. Twists and turns galore, but no quality whatsoever
