    'End of Watch' is one of the best cop films in decades!

    There's nothing like a good, entertaining cop film to provide cinematic entertainment. Writer/director David Ayer creates a story about two L.A. cops. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Brain Taylor, an uptight, film-lover who films his days roaming the streets of L.A. for a documentary film class. This causes most of the film to be shot brilliantly in documentary style. Brains' partner Mike Zavala is a funny, equip cop who chooses to take the path of raising a family and being a simple guy. He is played by Michael Pena. The chemistry between Gyllenhaal and Pena is awesome. The two share hilarious conversations and kick-***crime scenes. They are realistic cops who don't play the whole tough-guy hero stereotype. That is given credit by Ayer's screenplay. The two officers patrol the streets as they risk their lives for L.A. and each other in an entertaining smash that will leave you speechless and humbled. David Ayer did the right thing by making most of but not all of the film filmed like a documentary. This aspect builds realism and intensity that not many directors would take. Usually cop films are very predictable due to simple plots and poor storytelling. Films like 'The Departed' and 'Training Day' are some of the greatest cop films that 'End of watch' could fit in the same category as. 'End of Watch' doesn't really have much of a plot that keeps moving forward. It just shows a lifestyle and friendship that will change the way you look at police officers and cinema forever.

UranusCrater Damn, End Of Watch was so much better than I thought it'd be. That ending was not what I was expecting even though the internet spoiled it.
