This movie was excellent. This movie has a lot of Action and Adventure. The actors did a good job with their roles. Also Anna Kendrick is another one of my favourite actresses who has done a lot of exciting movies in her career. Hats off to Anna Kendrick!

You are basically following two 'good' cops from the LAPD as they go about dealing with crimes and saving the innocent from harm. Often a handheld camera is used, which at times can be annoying. The portrayal of several super-villains is top-notched. If you like a good police drama, this one is for you.

Produced, written and directed by David Ayers of TRAINING DAY fame, END OF WATCH is a postmodern, postmillennial ADAM-12; it chronicles, in a faux digital cinéma vérité style, the adventures of two honest LAPD officers, played by Gyllenhaal and Pena, as they patrol their turf in South Central Los Angeles. It's a buddy film with a lots of well-written, mostly-believable young-man buddy dialogue. Everyone is beautiful of course because it's a big Hollywood film. The soundtrack is quite good, too. The love scene between Gyllenhaal and his romantic interest, played by Anna Kendrick from UP IN THE AIR, features "Fade into You" by Mazzy Star. What makes the movie compelling is a plot that keeps the baleful force, the Sinaloa Cartel, that the two honest police officers keep haphazardly foiling, mostly off screen. This creates a tension, a sense of impending doom, that makes for an excellent action film.

While it is wonderfully acted and written (as David Ayer's films tend to be) superbly. I'll be honest; it feels at times as though you are watching an extended episode of cops. But the building of tension is paced perfectly as well. It's probably more realistic than a lot of police films out there.

filmed 'real' & good character development - very gritty (no fluff in this) - cursing is commonplace in these types of neighbourhoods...
