Excerpt: A pair of L.A. street cops have their hot shot reputation tested when they stumble upon a Mexican drug cartel operation that is more brutal and ruthless than anything they have previously encountered.
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: 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.
Excerpt: Considering the raving reviews, and not just from critics, I went into this movie with high expectations, AND I wanted to like it. I really enjoyed Training Day, which director, David Ayer produced. So I figured End of Watch was going to be of the same ilk. Not so. Let's count 'em down: 1.
Excerpt: Wow!! Yet another well written script from the director who also wrote the script for one of my top 10 all time favorite films 'Traning Day' After not seeing a good 'L.A. crime' movie in awhile i was pleased when i saw the trailer for 'End Of Watch' Finally caught the film and now i will say it...
Summary: Jake Gyllenhaal and michael pena play some pretty good bad style cops in this new american police action film. Anna kendrick also stars who seems to be in a fair few films now most noticeably Twilight and the new film out soon called pitch perfect.
Excerpt: Most cop films had always intrigued me, based on the characters that are established and the impressively staged shoot-out sequences. From my count, I haven't seen many "bad" or "mediocre" cop films.
