Okay this is going to be a short review for this movie so let's go.the acting is good and I like that it is a found footage movie.

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 Peņa work so well in their roles as a pair of cocky street cops who finds themselves in the crosshairs of a cartel. Even the relationship aspect works well. Those who like gritty cop dramas should check this one out.

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

"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. For additional authenticity, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peņa had to undergo training for their roles as officers of the Los Angeles Police Department including ride alongs 3 times a week. That's dedication to your craft and realism, including one of the best police related openings for a picture. Brian Taylor (Gyllenhaal) and Miguel Zavala (Peņa) are not only partners, but best of friends who go about their day. Brian films their experience at work using a small camera and video cam.

Camera direction was not dizzying and offers some nic...

One of the better cop films out there.

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 holds itself well amongst many of the great cop films of days gone by. Harrowing footage delivered sometimes from video cam really shows the horrors that some of the boys in blue face in South Central L.A. and surrounding areas. The movie wasn't what i thought it would be after seeing the trailer as i thought once again it was a good cop/bad cop story such as what was depicted in 'Training Day' Both of the officers Gyllenhaal and Pena this time mostly uphold the law however in a manner that mig...

Review: End of Watch

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. The ones that immediately pop into my brain are Michael Bay's two Bad Boys films and Kevin Smith's surprisingly awful Cop Out. Some of the superior and more influential cop movies that I like include Heat, Lethal Weapon, and The Departed. Hell, I'll even throw in Hot Fuzz. End of Watch is the latest of the genre, and while it doesn't reach the level of greatness, it's still a gem. Buckle up and enjoy this wild ride.

Brian Taylor (Jake Gyllenhaal) and Mike Zavala (Michael Pena) are two L.A. Police Officers, patrolling some of the roughest and toughest neighborhoods. Officer Taylor captur...
