Not for me, story was decently interesting though.

Pacing was god awful and it was extremely tone deaf at some points. Intense combat scenes painted to be extremely badass with multiple enemies dying and gruesome kills, but then two minutes later an enemy teenager is shot and the dramatic music starts playing and one of the "good guys" tries to save them. Really odd.

Very disorienting as well, I get that its industry standard for intense action scenes to have a ton of cuts but it just didn't work at all in this. The car chase towards the end made no sense and I had no understanding of space in the final building shootout.
