REVIEW: END OF WATCH
OVERVIEW: Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña are a pair of LAPD officers patrolling one of the city’s most violent and gang-ridden areas in End of Watch, coming to Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on January 22, 2013, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. A gut-wrenching, first-person account of life on the streets from writer and director David Ayer (Training Day), End of Watch offers audiences a rare window into the world of law enforcement, packed with action, humor and emotion. With its incomparable high-definition picture and perfect hi-def 5.1 surround sound, the End of Watch Blu-ray™ immerses audiences in a dark and chaotic world, and includes an hour of exclusive bonus features including deleted scenes and director’s commentary.
SYNOPSIS: From the writer of Training Day comes a gripping, action-packed cop drama starring Academy Award® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña. In their mission to abide by their oath to serve and protect, Officers Brian Taylor (Gyllenhaal) and Mike Zavala (Peña) have formed a powerful brotherhood to ensure they both go home at the end of watch. But nothing can prepare them for the violent backlash that happens after they pull over the members of a notorious drug cartel for a routine traffic stop. Seen from the point of view of the officers, gang members, surveillance cameras, dash cams and citizens caught in the line of fire, a 360° perspective creates a gritty, compassionate and intense portrait of the city’s darkest streets, and the brave men and women patrolling them.
