My review of "End of Watch"

Hello all,

I wrote a review of "End of Watch" over at my own website, and figured I'd share a link to it here in case anyone felt like reading it.

LINK: https://ben-weber-ing4.squarespace.com/end-of-watch/

I'm open to any comments or feedback about the review or the movie, and would enjoy discussing it with anyone who either agrees or disagrees with my opinions.

who cares about LAPD. This movie sucks on so many levels. Pointless!

Where would film makers be without LAPD? The TV show "Southland" often comes off as very fine TV drama. In a reality(unscripted hate-mongering) TV this type of exceptional drama stands out and is welcomed as the way to do good work..

Anyone feeling any sadness at the end, due to the death of Mr. Pena's character, can ask themselves: is our War on Drugs worth the collateral damage it causes?

Uh, one of the heroes is Hispanic and the screenwriter is friends with many who are black and hispanic in South Central. What the fuck is your problem?

That's an opinion and I thank you for it...so many of the audience goes on like a human Homer Simpson. All drug dealers are over top mad dog, tated-up, gold grill wearing, holding an automatic sideways thug. If you don't believe just watch any filmed drama from the last 30 years ....once Hollywood gets hooked on a fake-ass,contrived, unrealistic, and as you point-out so well "Racist"!!! They never give that character a break( like a lonely,boring ,near-sighted X-Box playing asthmatic jew-boy, for a change(it might even be fun to try) Really so played out and used up!

Do you actually know any drug dealers? Most of them are over the top, mad dog, tated-up, gold grill wearing, holding an automatic sideways thugs. I'm sorry that a cop film set in LA had too many blacks and latinos for your taste, perhaps the next shootout could be set in Israel, those IDF are experts on corrupt policing.

Inyourdreams..I assume you know drug dealers then? I didn't really see any true "racism" in the movie other than the two main characters jokes at each other. Sadly,I assumed correctly the Mexican cop was going to die at the end..

Dumb comment, considering the setting was south central LA. I'm going to go out on a limb and say there isn't a whole lot of white gang bangers there.

I completely agree!! This was such an accurate depiction of whatsouth central LA must be like to the men in blue that keep us safe. At the end of the day though, it is just a movie. AND a good movie!
