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.
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?

Summary: An amazing police thriller/drama film that reminds you of such great cop show oldies like Adam-12 and 21 Jump Street. With deep characters, great acting and superb directing, End of Watch is worth watching.
