About the Movie

From the writer of Training Day comes a gripping, action-packed cop drama about family, friendship, love, honor and courage. In their mission to abide by their oath to serve and protect, Officers Brian Taylor (Gyllenhaal) and Mike Zavala (Peña) have formed a powerful brotherhood to ensure they both make it home at the end of watch. But nothing can prepare them for the violent backlash that happens after they pull over the members of a notorious drug cartel for a routine traffic stop.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The performances here are so sharp that viewers may wish End of Watch has been shot by someone who knew how to find the right point of view for a scene and leave it there. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jan 8, 2013

Fresh: Gyllenhaal and Pena are after a lived-in camaraderie and a street-level realism. Pena, especially, succeeds; you buy him every second. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Jan 8, 2013

Fresh: The actors, both excellent, get right into Ayer's groove. So by the time we arrive at the unsparing climax, we really know and care about these guys. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Jan 8, 2013

Rotten: Despite the violence and procedural detail, this is about as gritty as Dixon of Dock Green. – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian, Nov 22, 2012

Gyllenhaal & Pena are amazing in this movie ! Great chemistry. Finally a great movie that gives an idea of the reality of what it is to be in law enforcement. Best movie I have seen this year.

Portrays the realities of being a cop in the violent streets of LA, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Michael Peña are beyond believable in their roles… 2 hrs well spent!
