End of Watch was just released on the 18th of October [last Thursday] and Baby and I caught it over the last weekend.
Movie Plot [as extracted from GV‘s website]:
A powerful story of family, friendship, love, honor and courage, End Of Watch stars Academy Award(R) nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena as young Los Angeles police officers Taylor and Zavala as they patrol the city’s meanest streets of south central Los Angeles. Giving the story a gripping, first-person immediacy, the action unfolds through footage from the handheld HD cameras of the police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras, and citizens caught in the line of fire to create a riveting portrait of the city’s most dangerous corners, the cops who risk their lives there every day, and the price they and their families are forced to pay.
Personally, both Baby and I find the movie a tad too draggy. Although we really like the movie plot, the transition from one scene to another didn’t flow quite well. While I do understand that the movie wants to give cinema-goers a first-person kind of view, it certainly didn’t help much when throughout the entire movie, the scenes were just shaking so much that it gave us a pretty bad headache after that. Making matters worst, there were some pretty gruesome scenes and you might probably end up puking after the movie. So, if you’re planning to catch a movie this week, I reckoned that you might want to give End of Watch a miss unless you have a lot of spare cash that you don’t know how to spend it. Anyhows, believe me, I like the movie plot; but the way the movie was shot kinda puts me off.
Stay tuned to more updates from us.
