This is a movie in which Jason Statham plays Jason Statham and does Jason Stathamy things against Bad Guys, but it sports a cast that includes Nick Nolte, 'The Shield's' Michael Chiklis, 'Boardwalk Empire' and 'The Station Agent's' Bobby Cannavale, 'The Wire's' Wendell Pierce, and Tony Award Winner Patti LuPone. It's also directed and produced by Taylor Hackford, by the guy behind 'The Devil's Advocate' and 'Ray.' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgYaiLcByRo Oh yeah, and Jennifer Lopez is a real estate agent. Fucking... what?
End Of Watch is one of the best missed opportunities to be a good movie I've seen all year. The movie is about two cops played by Jake Gyllenhal and Michael who are cops in South Central Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhal's character Officer Taylor is recording there day to day patrols for an art class that he is taking. Officer Taylor is joined by a cast of hardened witty smack talking cops that all sound like they watched 48 hours and The Shield way too many times. The movie starts with a pretty good chase seen where Jack Gyllenhal gives an amazing speech about being a police officer as you watch a high speed police chase from the point of view of the police car camera that ends with a gang shoot out but from that scene the movie is all done hill from there. It's not necessarily a bad movie, it actually starts off pretty good until about 15 or 25 minutes into the movie where the point of view of the story changes and it makes no sense. I film then follows the strangest beats going from jokes about being single and a cop to scenes of gratuitous violence that seem hap hazardly thrown in. Please please review this so I can see if I'm over analyzing this movie or is it just the down fall of Jake Gyllenhal's career. This was also made by the same writer as "Training Day", "U-571", "The Fast and The Furious", and "Swat" (I wrote them in the order of quality)
