Excerpt: Dare I say End of Watch is my favorite 'found footage' film (or at least majority 'found footage' film)? District 9 would be far and away my top pick, but I don't feel comfortable putting that film in the found footage genre. There have been too many lately, but among the pack are standouts. Chronicle is great, Paranormal Activity is effectively scary for its shoestring budget (forget its sequels), but End of Watch just elevates the genre to a respectable level.
Excerpt: I would say Lethal Weapon 4 but Rush Hour 2 is more recent and Rush Hour 3 wasn't as good as the 2nd. This film is better than Rush Hour 2, this "buddy cop" film is up there with Lethal Weapon or even Beverly Hills Cop because of its pure action and drama. Is it as good as Lethal Weapon? No, however this movie is a combination of Lethal Weapon and Training Day almost. It has the action and comedy of Lethal Weapon mixed with the realistic life of cops in L.A.
Excerpt: If you loved "Training Day" and also David Ayer's first directing effort, "Harsh Times"...you'll certainly love "End of Watch" -- easily one of the most exciting films of 2012. Ayer isn't a one-trick-pony; rather, his storytelling abilities and directorial senses are sharper than ever -- making "End of Watch" his best effort yet. (Oh, and for the record, I didn't really like "Street Kings.

Excerpt: review made on the blu ray version of the movie as follows- movie - 5 / 5 video - 5 / 5 audio - 5 / 5 having just viewed a Russian blu ray version of the movie, what can i say but IT'S GREAT. throughly enjoyed this movie from start to finish, wasn't a slow moment for the full duration of the film, making it one of the best police movies i have ever seen.
Summary: This movie is mostly shot from a first-person's perspective, and it works... The whole story is basically there to show the nature of a police officer's job, in one of the roughest areas of the US. Probably one of the best movies I've seen in the last few years. A must see for anyone who's ever been a fan of a police / crime series!
Summary: Where do I start? Well the plot is on the face of it used to death but, actually it works well with the cinematography and scene shots. It's fast past, excellent acting and has that emotional twist! My best film of 2012 for me.
Conclusion: This is the big budget movie version of cops! well sort of in that tradition of camera style footage from the perspective of the actors making their own documentary of day to day events, this movie has been directed and edited in such a great way that makes it really upbeat and entertaining to watch with a fast pace and plenty of action, the cast is brilliant and they make very believable cops and really give us a realistic angle of day to day police activity, its fun...
Conclusion: was good to see something a little different from the norm.. basically if feels like your watching the L.A.P.D at work day in day out and the movie focuses on two patrol men as they deal with some serious scummy people..its filmed like a movie and documentary..there are alot of shocking and gruesome momments in this movie and i have to say this is one job i would not like to do..
