Preview: End of Watch (2012)


A pair of successful cops finds themselves on the wrong end of a prominent drug cartel who wants to kill them for hampering their operations.

  • Poster: D


At least the designer recognizes the "reality show" footage style of the film and tries to incorporate that into the poster design, but doing so with a poorly composed and listless image won't impress anyone.

  • Trailer: C-


The jarring nature of filming this as if it's being made for the TV show Cops isn't a wise choice. Maybe the rest of the film will rely more frequently on steady cam or tripods, but if this trailer is any indication, we may be in for a rough, potentially nauseating ride. The plot of the film looks completely generic and I can't imagine anyone really wanting to watch this film after a trailer like this.
