End of Watch, written and directed by David Ayer (Training Day, The Fast and the Furious, Harsh Times), is a brilliantly done movie.
End of Watch is filmed documentary style only without the constant hand-held nauseous that some reality filmed movies lean on. The R rating is well-earned and not like the R rating given to sci-fi or Quentin Tarantino films.
The witty banter of the characters played by Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña is laugh-out-loud well written material, which adds some smoothness to the rough edges of this heavy film.
For all the SouthLAnd fans out there…End of Watch could not be a better movie match for you. (It’s available on streaming Netflix).
