Amber's Review of End of Watch
End of Watch(2012)
End of Watch cleverly turns the now-cliche handheld style into something personable and charming. Gyllenhaal is comfortable in one of his best roles but the true surprise comes from Michael Pena. Although the general premise of "badass" cops seems trite from the outside there is an incredible amount of realism written into the script and makes you feel more like you're watching an HD episode of cops instead of two actors. You grow to love both of the main characters and by the end I felt as if I had been given an eye into a true partnership.
