  • End of Watch gives you the savage whoosh of being on a job that can get you killed. Sins of cop clich├ęs can be forgiven when a movie pays honest tribute to police on the line. show more

  • Shallow down inside, End of Watch is a music-video Frappuccino of quick cuts, sparkling banter, serial crises, grisly violence and tongue-jerk profanity. But the film is exciting, in its manipulative way, and exhausting. show more

  • David Ayer, the writer of "Training Day," director of "Street Kings," writer/director of "Harsh Times," does not make movies about princesses with witchy curses, about yuppie commitment-phobes, about talking plush toys. His territory is narrow, but he owns it: cops, in Los Angeles. show more
