Good story, great acting.
One of the best cop-dramas I've seen in a long, long time. Great chemistry between the two leading men.

one of the best cop movies ive seen those LA cops and all cops to some point deal with the worst stuff in life,crazy,that was a great movie.
One of the best cop movies i have ever seen 5 stars
one of the more underrated films I have seen. It was truly a great cop drama. One of the best I've seen in a long time. Jake is the man.
Excellent movie - smart script, high intensity and fantastic performances

Me& my girlfriend enjoyed the movie very much do recommend it t for other depending on ur choice of films.
Great Movie - loved it!
Not bad, but not great. Good writing, strong acting, and a realistic storyline, I suppose. I was expecting better from Gyllenhaal, but maybe it was one of those more nuanced performances. He was great in Love and Other Drugs and Source Code, two movies I recommend far more than this! Friedkin, director of The French Connection (1971) claims that this may be the best cop movie ever, which is something I'd have to disagree with. That title goes to Training Day in my book, with a show-stopping performance from Denzel Washington, my favorite actor, who definitely deserved the Oscar!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Check this out and see what you think, but you might as well wait for the DVD and just rent
Loved it. It was easy to relate to the characters and they were very believable.
amazing movie! so good!
Only lasted 10 minutes in this movie. I have never heard so many "f words"! Terrible movie
Awesome Movie, captivating. Must See!!!
Almost made me cry lol
It was good but not the greatest
Kept me in suspense all the way through, yet there were funny moments. Good movies but not if you don't like killing and blood
liked very much.
not his best
Loved this movie.
Pretty good movie.
wow. had no expectations but anything than another real (it gets ugly) cops story, but this exceeded my expectations. it's depiction up-close 'first person' views, several tight eyepoint views behind gun/videocam/monitor-cams/night-vision very realistic. action on occasion was blurry & chaotic [expected] but realistic/brutal, enthralling, terrifying, face unpredictable fatal violence. foul language very realistic (cop or thug). story heartbreaking too. again wow. worth the see.
Terrific performances. Difficult to watch at time. Realistic. Gritty. Funny. Painful.
An intelligent and extremely gritty look @ the LAPD! Great performances all around.
this movie had suspense, drama and quite a few good laughs. it sure shows how much work is involved in a job such as policing. the acting by cast members was great! i definitely recommend this movie.
its nice to go watch a movie for adults once in awhile.
really good movie
edge of your seat drama.
it is a good movie.
okay movie, however excessive vulgarity definitely puts a damper on it.
end of watch was absolutely amazing! i would recommend this movie to everyone, very realistic. great story and the actors were amazing!!!!
great movie! fantastic acting! very funny at some parts, shows a different perspective to cops, understanding how you could hate them, yet love them for what they sacrifice in turn. highly recommended!
Brace yourself......superbly presented story with a real gut wrenching portrayal of that LAPD. Not for those who live in a sheltered world.
