Sadly some of the hand-held camerawork is rather off-putting, I'm not much of a fan of 'shaky-cam' in the first place but can understand it's use in certain scenarios to impart a sense of frenetic movement or chaos - outside of those though I think it's far more often indicative of budgetary constraints than any artistic choice.
