This seemed to be a recruitment film for the police. The phrase "you're my brother" was uttered at least 400 times in the film. We found this film ridiculous showing a romantic view of cops. The actors were good but most of the Mexicans and blacks were depicted as ugly and comical. I would give this film a 0/5.

I liked this better than 'Training Day', which I just saw. The scene where the mother is outside, and her kids are in the burning house - I wanted to bitch slap the mother in slow motion. Oh, what a dunce.

Glad I found this on a staff-recommended shelf at JP in Boston! David Ayer is the man here (wrote Training Day); keep an eye on him. -— Excellent wild hand-held/found video LA South Central ride-along. Even Jake Gyllenhaal is good; he’s within his acting range, which, here, is macho-action-movie-cop with lingo et al (a style thing). They trained for mos w/cops (sheesh) but it paid off big time because of Ayer. ---— It’s so easy to make a good film what with all the craft talent in LA and all the easy video cameras and digital post available. Christ, almost anyone with decent talent and real desire could do good work (within whatever their world is). I’m talking a/v post Holly/Bollywood boxoffice; the digital/postcapitalist revolution—like in this film. Ayer’s got balls and can-do. -— A mix of ‘found’ footage, so to speak, and objective hand-held with some ‘indy’ tricks; Ayer says it’s easy, man, and IT IS. -— There are so many tricks to use, Jesus, it’s about time someone does. Give me one of them digicams and a crew..... The problem is so many things in filmdom resist creativity for all the capitalist-Matrix reasons not the least being the ‘gestalt’ thing—viewers (and consequently, producers) staying within static perception boundaries often for no reason at all, just stasis (they aren’t used to changing; similar to self-censorship). Lemmings all! The subtle world of sensibility we’re unconscious of that bring us to ... appreciations, uh. (Entertainments being what we already know.) Pretty soon we’ll ask, ‘why didn’t we do any of these cool things sooner?’.The ‘media challenge’?

Yaaaa tons of cursing for no reason. Its basically just a day in the life of a cop. Not bad. However since the ENTIRE MOVIE was fimed by a hand held it was extremly dizzy. My camera phone has better stability. Doing it to show the realism but I swear I almost threw up after watching this movie.

Absolutely disgusting.. We turned it off 5 min into because of the constant swearing

End of Watch has the energy, devotion to characters, and charismatic performances to overcome the familiar pitfalls of its genre and handheld format.

Decent "c0p buddies" movie with both lead actors doing a convincing job. Disliked the hand-held camera look right from the commercial popularization of it in "Hill Street Blues" but it is conducive to the story in this case.

This is not an action movie as much as a slow documentary. And I am not sure why the lead character needed to speak into a handycam when many scenes are filmed without that plot device.

Slightly interesting conceit in pretending that this is almost all video clips shot by one of the characters. Story and acting are nothing special.
