Why? Here's the answer on why developers chose this kind of style:

"Introducing a new visual experience, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days is inspired by documentary filmmakers and the user-generated era. Every aspect of the game has been designed to deliver a fresh perspective to the words 'intensity' and 'realism' in video games."

If you don't appreciate the style, then this game isn't for you.

EDIT: I believe you can turn it off under options but then it'll lose the whole idea of immersion.
