End of Watch

Yes, it's about a pair of cops, and yes, it's set in a bad part of Los Angeles. But just because End of Watch ($25) was written and directed by the scribe behind Training Day doesn't mean it's a rehash. In fact, it just might be better. All-time bros Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña serve as upstanding police officers who get more than they bargain for over the course of a few days (it gets weird, people), and thanks to plentiful use of first-person, hand-held cameras, it conveys a sense of excitement and visceral terror like few cop films before it. A must-see.
