End of Watch (2012) Rated R

End-of-WatchEnd of Watch follows the daily grind of two police officers who are friends and partners. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Peña, Natalie Martinez, Anna Kendrick, Frank Grillo, America Ferrera

Shot documentary style to give it a gritty look. The only problem is that everyone had a camera even the bad guys are filming the police officers. I think not. Realism of this film seemed at times stretched. I also wondered what the reasoning behind the movie was. Was it to give a realistic portrayals of police officers, which in I think it failed. Or was it to show us the human trafficking in the US and how it’s so out of hand that we can’t stop it, which I think it failed. The only realistic point of the film that I understood was that the police officers have no idea the situations they are going into. They also deal with the worse of society. If I would say on whether you should watch this film, I’d say  skip it.
