"End of Watch" - starring Jake Gyllenhaal & Michael Pena
"End of Watch" follows police officers Brian Taylor (Gyllenhaal) and Mike Zavala (Pena) as they patrol the tough streets of south central Los Angeles. It's shot documentary style via surveillance cameras, cellphone video, dashboard cameras and hand held cameras that they use as part of their jobs. It's pretty gritty, they deal with some pretty unsavory characters but they also bond together and become best of friends. I found it tragic, brutal, horrific and edge of seat exciting. Strong performances by Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Pena and supporting characters Anna Kendrick and America Ferrera. I highly recommend.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars (*****).
