This is a must see movie if you like cop movies or shows. You really felt like you were riding along with them. The hand held cameras were a little hard to handle sometimes but the story line and the wonderful partnership and friendship between the two police officers make you forget the camera. If you are a fan of Southland, you will definintely love this movie. Wonderful actors and very entertaining, Not for younger viewers, very graphic and lots and lots of the F word, almost too much I thought until the next day I listened to an actual recording of city police in a shoot out with cartel (in another state) and realized it did sound the same and the vocabulary was the same. Made me thankful I live 41 miles east of L.A.

This movie was great. I went in thinking it was going to be so-so...once it it started I was pulled in. All the actors in this movie had great performances. I laughed, cried and felt nervous at times. Overall, great movie. This movie is NOT for kids. I was completely shocked to see a mother come in with her son who was maybe 10 years of age. ADULTS ONLY PLEASE!

Gritty? Definitely! Realistic? Absolutely! Brutal? Immensely! Entertaining? Oh my, YES!!
I don't understand why Michael Pena and Jake Gyllenhaal are not at the top of everyone's best actor list this year. Their chemistry is off the charts. Add their performances to a top notch script that is filled with heart, humor and tension and you've got a film that defines what we go to movies for. And for all of it's action and violence, the real story is the loving friendship between the two main characters. Absolutely authentic. I loved this movie!

This is the most realistic police movie that I have seen. The main characters did an awesome job. The producer did a great job of depicting life everyday in the police world.

End of Watch was one of the most thrilling and engaging movies I have seen in a very long time. It was so compelling, I may go to see it again. Great Flick!!!!!
