End of Watch: Watcha Gonna Do When They Come For You?

<i>End of Watch</i>: Watcha Gonna Do When They Come For You?

Now that the found footage aesthetic has become an accepted staple of horror movies, there appears to be a concentrated effort to apply it to other genres as well. This past February, for example, saw the release of the surprisingly terrific Chronicle, an inventive superhero picture told from the perspective of a Peter Parker-like outcast who acquires great power, but ignores his responsibilities. The following month, Project X depicted the ultimate high school house party where images of extreme debauchery and destruction were recorded for posterity by one very lucky teen. Now here comes End of Watch, a street-level Los Angeles-based police drama from writer/director David Ayer where the action is supposedly being filmed as it happens by the two men caught up in it -- good cops and even better buddies Brian Taylor (Jake Gyllenhaal) and Mike Zavala (Michael Peña).
