End of Watch

ComingSoon
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Writer-director David Ayer ("Training Day," "Street Kings") has made his career from plumbing the depths of corruption in the Los Angeles Police Department, reliving the heady days of the Rampart Division investigations over and over and over again. It's only fair then that he give back a little to those from whom he has earned so much. And so we get "End of Watch," Ayer's paean to the men and women of the LAPD.

End of Watch Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
10 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Sixty percent of End of Watch really is one of the best films of 2012. Unfortunately, Gyllenhaal and Peña's performances, however award-worthy, and the story's most painful gut punches aren't enough to make up for the remaining forty percent. Ayer's drama and shifting points of view grow more and more indulgent as the film goes along, the supporting cast languishes (minus the nigh unshakable Kendrick and Martinez), and the third act neglects much of what renders the...

End of Watch

High-Def Digest
9 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Despite featuring a very familiar plot, 'End of Watch' is a heart-stopping, compelling action thriller that feels fresh, thanks in large part to the energized feel of the "found footage" camerawork. At the center, the chemistry-driven and excellent performances of Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña keep the narrative at a captivating pace until the emotionally shocking final moments.

  • Conclusion: It’s a collection of cop-movie clichés but presented with sufficient flair and strong performances that the ride is enough, even if it’s on rails.

  • Summary: Selvom End of Watch er en rå og skal give et billede af en halv-dokumentarisk hverdag for gadebetjentene i Los Angeles, synes jeg aldrig den helt fanger mig. Ideen med at filmen skydes med en masse hjemmevideo-kameraer fungerede ikke for mig.

Innerlig värme i hård polismiljö

  • Excerpt: Oj, vad vi har sett det här förut: två unga snutkompisar med attityd som patrullerar Los Angeles elaka gator. Det är missbrukarmisär, gängrivaliteter, rasmotsättningar, drogkarteller och alldeles för mycket tung beväpning. Det kan kanske ligga nära till hands att man utvecklar en viss cynism i den här miljön, att man blir avtrubbad och börjar tänja på regelverket, använder övervåld och ser till att på olika sätt kompensera sig för allt det obehag och elände man vadar i...
