END OF WATCH 09 Universal Announces End Of Watch For Blu Ray In January

Universal has announced David Ayer’s latest cop drama End of Watch for Blu-Ray in January. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Pena and Anna Kendrick.

Nothing says grit and real-life cop drama like Training Day writer David Ayer. He’s been responsible for either penning or directing some of the best corrupt cop features of the past decade, like Street Kings and Harsh Times. His latest feature is shot through the viewpoint of two LA city cops and the result is a thrilling and almost all too real depiction of what goes down on the streets on any given day.

End of Watch isn’t as depressing or controversial as some of his past films, but he trades in the corruption and scum for a pair of blue-collar policemen played with brotherhood and compassion by Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena. The duo makes the film work despite its shortcomings and the POV filming technique does help increase the tension and on-edge action.

Our very own Jonathan Lack had this to say about the film in his review:

 David Ayer’s End of Watch is an excellent film, a smart and authentic cop drama filled with visceral thrills and genuine pathos. It is one of the best of its kind, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Universal will be bringing the film to Blu-Ray in a Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack with the following special features:

  • Feature Commentary with Writer and Director David Ayer
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Fate with a Badge
  • In the Streets
  • Women on Watch
  • Watch Your Six
  • Honors

You can pick up End of Watch on January 22nd, 2013.

    I completely forgot that this movie was getting released this week. A co-worker at DISH told me about it, so I’ll definitely put this movie at the top of my Blockbuster @Home rental service from DISH. I like Blockbuster @Home because I can rent games and movies, plus stream movies straight to my TV. I do believe that it’s better to play games and rent movies for a low flat monthly fee instead of buying them brand new, it saves me a ton of money in the long run.
