The two most important things to know about movie critics are:
Take a look at any best movie list by professional critics, and the standard cross-dressing scam movies are bound to be there. Drag queen movies don't generally make it because the men have to be cross-dressing due to some situational necessity, not just because they personally like it.

The a-story is about Tony's alcoholism and depression and father issues, and the b-story is about some guy who is angry. The a-story's big action sequence (the best of the film) is against his best friend. Then Tony cures all his psychological problems and flies off because he remembers there's still a b-story to wrap up. The b-story action sequence is very long, and poorly filmed, and darkly lit, and with a lot of bad CGI. It is boring and takes forever and, because it is the b-story, you know it's not very important. It deflates what was otherwise a decent movie.
