Movie Review: End of Watch

end_of_watch_ver3

***Spoiler Alert***

Synopsis:

Two cops who patrol south central Los Angeles which is overwhelmed by gangster activity.

The two cops are the best of friends and you are immediately drawn into the tight knit relationship they have as they patrol the streets.

They are very ambitious and have a keen idea on where the next crime scene will be.

Eventually they start sticking their nose in places they shouldn’t be and quickly get on the assassination lists of a Mexican cartel drug leader.

Final Thoughts:

I liked the pace of this movie simply because they transitioned quite easily from funny conversations to real life drama and action.

You are taken along on many patrols that lead to drug busts, shoot outs, and car chases.

In between, you get to see how the cop buddies squeeze in a normal life just like all of us which includes dating, quinceaneras, and funerals.

The movie’s ending allows me to see how fragile a life can be even though you hope that good will always prevail.

Foreign Movie Review: Point Blank

Movie Review:  Point Blank

*Spoiler Alert*

Sypnosis: Fast-paced foreign movie where everyone’s not who they seem to be until the movie twist is revealed.

Male nurse is black-mailed into rescuing a convict from his hospital with a police on duty.

He quickly becomes associated with the bad guy.

Eventually we learn that not all the good guys are good and not the bad guys are bad.

Male nurse and convict decide to team up and exact vengeance on the “real” bad guys who happens to have the male nurse’s pregnant wife in their hands.

Final Thought: Since it is a foreign film, you should be comfortable with reading subtitles the whole movie.

Other than that, I don’t see any other drawbacks from this movie.

Story is unique and even though it might remind you of something you’ve watched before, midway through the movie it’ll throw a curve and forever change your mind.

No holes in the story, unless you don’t read every line and only then will you get lost.

Plenty of violence and blood, but most of it is necessary. Not thrown in just because they can like some other violent movies.

Definitely a good surprise from my initial expectations at the beginning of the movie.

Rating: 5/5
