Updated with my thoughts.
It was entertaining but I feel like this movie was too smart for me. The quick pace makes it a challenge to keep track, let alone figure out all what’s going on at times. The twists and turns come very quick, particularly in the later parts of the film. I think it’s the type of film that requires multiple viewings. You’ll be hard pressed to catch all the details on a first viewing alone and I imagine I’d appreciate it more in subsequent viewings. Very charismatic characters and a fair amount of shootouts.
