Although the protagonists of those stories perpetrated despicable acts, they did so with charisma and style as participants in an almost alien landscape where the normal rules of civilisation don't apply. Here, we just see a series of montages of gratuitous violence inflicted by fat necked, obnoxious geezers shouting "You FACKING CANT" at each other.
