  • Summary: I really really liked the opening scene. But I guess the film is not as intense as it tried to be, there are some unrealistic scenes and I wish they could have utilized that camera Gyllenhaal was holding throughout the film. I always love Michael Peña as family-man cop.

  • Summary: Rookie cops Taylor and Zavala patrol some of the roughest streets in L.A. - using a variety of hand-held footage - from gang member's and police dash cams - the audience is given an intimate connection to the gritty drama.

  • Summary: For once the so-called "found footage" aspect enhances a film rather than being incorporated as some kind of gimmick. It helps that Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña work so well in their roles as a pair of cocky street cops who finds themselves in the crosshairs of a cartel.

  • Summary: Two things I am tired of in movies are the hand-held "I am taking this film" technique and the inability of a half dozen people at point blank range with military grade weapons being until to hit their target. If you love cop films you might like this one, but I found it tedious.

  • Summary: Not a bad movie. The found footage concept is week but at least it is a different genre. Kind of a pointless movie but seemed to pace well. An interesting rental for someone looking for a different type of crime/action movie. just OK.

End of Watch review

FilmCrave
9 February 2013
  • Excerpt: "Let's go fight crime." It may not win Oscars or any awards, it may not even have respect from certain viewers and film critics, but for this reviewer, it was pure non-stop entertainment from start to finish. One of the best cop movies around.

  • Summary: A good LA Police Department movie using the reality film point of view (although not overdone). A Bromance movie about 2 low level LAPD cops who get in over their head. In summary, it is a good story that show that in the end friendships and family are most important.

  • Summary: The characters and situations are engrossing. The performances and grit add to the overall strive for realism. The handheld format, in company with the excellent editing, keeps the movie fast paced. It's tense, dramatic, and much better than expected.
