A found footage cop movie? OK, not quite, but David Ayer's "End of Watch," starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena as two cops in the LAPD, definitely has that visceral, super intimate, shot on digital-cameras look to it. Or as Ayer once described it: an "in your face” POV style, and that's definitely the case.

End Of Watch

A found footage cop movie? OK, not quite, but David Ayer's "End of Watch," starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena as two cops in the LAPD, definitely has that visceral, super intimate, shot on digital-cameras look to it. Or as Ayer once described it: an "in your face” POV style, and that's definitely the case.

Ayer wrote "Training Day, "The Fast & the Furious" and "S.W.A.T." and was the writer/director of "Harsh Times" and "Street Kings," so cops and that beat is definitely his bread and butter. A drama centered on the long-term friendship and partnership between two cops, 'Watch' also looks like it focuses on two beat cops who have an itch for detective duty and end up rolling up on drug cartel criminals and starting something way bigger than they can handle.

Co-starring Anna Kendrick, "Magic Mike" newcomer Cody Horn, America Ferrera, Frank Grillo and more, "End of Watch" is due September 28th via Open Road Films. Check out the trailer below.
