Movie Info

Longtime LAPD partners and friends, Brian Taylor (Jake Gyllenhaal) and Mike Zavala (Michael Peña) patrol one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in Los Angeles. Though they may bend the rules, their honor and dedication to the job are unquestioned. Taylor and Zavala always have each other's back, even if Taylor's surreptitious filming of their daily activities for a college course is a bit ill-advised. All hell breaks loose for the officers when they run afoul of a vicious Mexican cartel.

Audience Reviews for End of Watch

  • Aug 25, 2019
    A good duo at the forefront of this thing, but I don't especially care for the half-assed documentary schematic or, you know... cops.

    More shaky cam than I generally care for. Both Gyllenhaal and Pena were excellent.

    The buddy cop dramedy revisited and made relatable by the spot on performances on it's lead players. The plot setup is somewhat far fetched but its nada but a thrill rise after all. And while not Hope and Crosby, the banter often is not too far from them either.
    Kevin M. W Super Reviewer

    End of watch is so realistic, well written, dark and intriguing. End of Watch is one of the best cop films I've seen and is definitely worth your time to see!
