End of Watch Movie Review (2013)
The Good: Gives a supposedly "real" look at what it's like being a cop in South Central. The character development was done pretty well because you actually kind of care about the two partners throughout the film. The action is pretty consistent in some scenes, but nothing over the top. Doesn't end the way you'd expect, but the ending was solid.
The Bad: If you are a police officer, or know one personally, then there are some elements to this story that are just not as believable. (eg: police NOT wearing bulletproof vests in the middle of a dangerous neighborhood.) You give it a pass, but it kind of defeats the authenticity that the movie was trying to put forth.
The Reason: Overall this movie wasn't the Training Day copycat film that I thought it was going to be. This is one of those perfect movies to rent or download and not feel like you wasted your time afterwards. Check it out.
The Rating: 7.5/10
