Brenda's Review of End of Watch
End of Watch(2012)
This film was one of the best of 2012, for sure. I cannot believe it took me this long to watch it. At first I wasn't too fond of the handheld style of filming, but I thought that its use in this film made its subject matter that more raw, capturing the reality of the dangers that these police officers face daily. Gyllenhaal and Pena have excellent chemistry as partners, and their brotherly bond is portrayed with outstanding finesse and ease. The film is absolutely captivating and thrilling, with a gripping ending.
