I’m curious to see David Ayer’s “End of Watch”. Seriously, for some reason, this movie looks like it could be really, really good to me. Then again, I’m a sucker for gritty crime dramas, and I don’t know, I initially thought Ayer’s strange camera angles were going to annoy me, but they don’t look too bad in the trailer and now in this first clip from the movie, which shows off the relationship and rapport between uniform cops and long-time partners Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena.

End Of Watch stars Academy Award® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña as young Los Angeles police officers Taylor and Zavala as they patrol the city’s meanest streets of south central Los Angeles. The film creates a riveting portrait of the city’s most dangerous corners, the cops who risk their lives there every day, and the price they and their families are forced to pay.

Also starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Pena, Anna Kendrick, Cody Horn, America Ferrera, Natalie Martinez, Frank Grillo, David Harbour, and Shondrella Avery.

The watch begins September 28, 2012.
