The way the movie starts I asked \" is this a comedy\"? Then immediately went into , \" it better not be\" because I can't see Gyllenhaal in that type of role. Much to my surprise IT WAS FANTASTIC . It humerous as times but only to show the side of two brother cops being real. Great Great Movie

San Francisco Chronicle
The best scenes are filmed inside the cruiser, dashboard shots that face inward instead of out, catching Gyllenhaal and Peña in moments so playful and true they make all other buddy cops look bogus by comparison. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
A visceral story of beat cops that is rare in its sensitivity, rash in its violence and raw in its humor. Full Review
Bill Goodykoontz
Arizona Republic
The action and the chemistry is stronger than the story, because Gyllenhaal and Peña are good. In that respect End of Watch works better as a series of vignettes held together somewhat loosely by a larger story. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Unlike many action thrillers where the viewer is fairly certain that no real harm can come to the protagonists, such is never the case here. In this gritty ride-along, we sense that anything can happen, which adds to the propulsive momentum of a riveting story. Full Review
Eric Kohn
By virtue of its style and high stakes scenario, End of Watch is impressively tense, but then so are most episodes of "COPS," which don't suffer from the forced melodrama found here. Full Review
