Story


A powerful story of family, friendship, love, honor and courage, "End Of Watch" stars Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena as young police officers Taylor and Zavala as they patrol the city's meanest streets of south central Los Angeles.

Giving the story a gripping, first-person immediacy, the action unfolds through footage from the handheld HD cameras of the police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras, and citizens caught in the line of fire to create a riveting portrait of the city's most dangerous corners, the cops who risk their lives there every day, and the price they and their families are forced to pay.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..like a knife in the eye, "End of Watch" cuts past the cliches of standard police procedurals, serving instead as a visceral ride-along with two thrill-seeking cops..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..the action and the chemistry is stronger than the story, because Gyllenhaal and Pena are good. In that respect "End of Watch" works better as a series of vignettes held together somewhat loosely by a larger story..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
