End Of Watch Trailer Spares No Ammo

End of Watch, which isn’t hitting until September 28th, is an interesting, and somewhat strange choice for Jake Gyllenhaal. At least, it seems that way to me. A gritty, police-centric action-drama, the film follows two cops who piss off the wrong people, and find themselves on a drug cartel’s hit list.

The trailer shows some potential, but it’s hard to tell how well this one is going to go over, especially considering the camera stylings this one is going with, which some may find too gimmicky by now. Whatever you may think, you aren’t likely to see many trailers that go through more rounds of ammunition. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Jake Gyllenhaal in End of Watch

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.

Giving the story a gripping, first-person immediacy, the action unfolds through footage from the handheld HD cameras of the police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras, and citizens caught in the line of fire to create 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.
