BFI London Film Festival 2012 Review | End Of Watch
A cursory glance at David Ayer’s filmography will reveal his propensity for cop dramas, with his previous work including such titles as 2001’s Training Day (for which he wrote the screenplay) and 2008’s Street Kings. He’s back on the beat again for his latest flick, End of Watch (2012), a gritty action-thriller set in Los Angeles which owes much to two exceptional central performances. Our protagonists this time around are Officers Brian Taylor (Jake Gyllenhaal) and Mike Zavala (Michael Peña), partners and best buds who are duty-bound protect and serve the citizens of the ‘City of Angels’.

I actually really enjoyed this film a lot. Much better than average police drama.

Let down a little by some crappy camerawork, but Gyllenhaal and Pena are great. You at the LFF in the next couple weeks?
