I fund it to be one of the best cop movies to date, and I will even go a little further and say that it was one of the better cop movies ever. It is that good. This movie has a good story/plot. Lots of action and they make it very real. Go see it, you wont be dissapointed.

Great movie, great acting on the part of the not so central characters. Jake and Michael are very talented; however, it always makes me cringe when you have a duo (whether Black & White or White & Hispanic) and they overdo the stereotypical jokes. Burrito, really? There's so many Mexican celebrations, really? These are things that are obvious without pointing it out every five minutes within the movie.
The Mexican cartel gang gave an accurate portrayal of the supposed attitude of Mexican cartels. Additionally, it was an accurate portrayal of Black v. Mexican relations in many "hoods.'
The movie was definitely a must see, but for Pete's sake, the camera angles will give you a migraine!
And, I'm pretty sure the Screenwriter is rivaling Scarface's use of the F bomb!

I wasn't completely enthralled by the movie, but it was entertaining.
Theres alot of profanity in this movie, but its a cop movie set in LA. Do you expect the gangbangers to have a highly refined vocabulary & speak in professional jargon?
The plot & even the tricky little ending was predictible, but there was some solid action, intense moments & even humor in this flick.
Overall a solid movie. Just know that you'll have to get used to the mobile camera work. It can be annoying at times.

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!!!!!

I like the ideology behind how they filmed the movie. There are many movies coming out that have this first person view of the action. By they time you get into the movie you kinda forget that and it makes the move more enjoyable.
The movie is great. The only reason I didn't give it a must go is because there were a few slow points of the move but felt it was probably necessary to give more to the story. It was also great to go see the movie at 4pm on a Friday when there were two other new films out. This made the theater scarce and gave it a more "home theater" feel.
Given that I have quite a few members of my family in CA law enforcement obviously I'm going to spot the "yeah right" and it's fallacies. However, it was very entertaining and would recommend it to an action film enthusiast.
