END OF WATCH

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM LISTINGS - Di­rected by David Ayer. Star­ring Jake Gyl­len­haal, Michael Peña, Anna Ken­drick, Amer­ica Fer­rera

We’re in­tro-- duced to an up­stand­ing young LAPD go-get­ter (Gyl­len­haal) and his trusty part­ner (Peña) on their rounds as the former at­tempts to film for a night-school project. This fram­ing de­vice is quickly dis­carded in favour of high­speed sirens, bro­mance and the duo’s pur­suit of a drugs car­tel. It’s a cheat, though it does cheat in a man­ner that en­hances the film’s en­ter­tain­ment value. 16 cert, gen re­lease, 109 min
