Synopsis: A drama centered on the long-term friendship and partnership between two cops.
Release Date: September 28, 2012
Thoughts: This looks a little like Training Day, no? It seems that every actor worth their salt needs to take a spin in a cop car and End of Watch seems to be Jake Gyllenhaal’s moment to do so. I find myself having a tough time responding to yet another gritty cop drama and the trailer doesn’t do much to set it apart from other similar genre films. The timing on this one seems right with an early fall release so it’s possible that coming out of a bombastic blockbuster summer audiences will be interested in a watch. I’ll reserve some judgment until another trailer comes out but for now let’s just say I’m casually considering this.
