End Of Watch (2012)

End Of Watch (2012)
Directed by: David Ayer
Country: USA

Summary: Two young officers are marked for death by members of a notorious cartel.
Review: A cop who records his daily work with a camera, while beating the streets of L.A. could be a bit difficult to swallow, but the idea eventually worked fine in David Ayer’s “End of Watch”. The performances of Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña were totally convincing, showing all the intensity of the fight against the members of a powerful gang. The story doesn’t rush to action. It warms the things up with some loose cases and quotidian life, until finally break into wild shooting scenes. The moving camera style that was used had two opposite effects: it highlights the realism of the scenes but also makes them confusing. Enough material to make us enjoy cop movies again.
