The crime movie delves into the gritty, dangerous world explored in another movie written by writer/director David Ayers, Training Day.
In End of Watch, Gyllenhaal and Pena play young, enthusiastic cops Brian Taylor and Mike Zavala, respectively, who form a brotherhood to ensure they both go home at the end of their watch. But that gets more difficult after they perform a routine traffic stop and confiscate some money and firearms. Turns out, the items belonged to a notorious drug cartel, and they put a price on the cops’ heads.
End of Watch grossed $40 million in theaters, a little more than half the take of 2001’s Training Day. But critics lauded End of Watch as “edgy” and “exciting,” especially the two lead actors. Wrote Detroit News critic Tom Long, “Gyllenhaal and the perpetually under-rated Pena have a wonderful way of bouncing off one another, and Ayers is wise to make this the energy that drives the movie instead of mere violence.”
The Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack includes a downloadable digital copy and instant streaming via UltraViolet, both redeemable through April 30, 2015.
