Universal Studios Home Entertainment has officially announced the Blu-ray release of writer/director David Ayer's End of Watch, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña as a pair of LAPD officers patrolling one of the city's most violent, gang-ridden areas. Shot from the point of view of police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras, dashboard cams and citizens caught in the line of fire, Ayer uses gritty handheld footage to create a powerful story of family, friendship, honor and courage. End of Watch arrives on Blu-ray via a BD/DVD/UltraViolet digital copy Combo Pack on January 22, 2013.
In their mission to abide by their oath to serve and protect, Officers Brian Taylor (Gyllenhaal) and Mike Zavala (Peña) have formed a powerful brotherhood to ensure they both go home at the end of their watch. But nothing can prepare them for the backlash that occurs after they pull over members of a notorious drug cartel for a routine traffic stop.
Bonus features include:

Amazing film. I'm getting really sick of those ugly blue banners though. Completely ruins slipcases. It's even worse when they're on the cover art for regular blu-ray's that already have blue cases just to let us know that IT'S A COMBO PACK. Would a god damn sticker hurt?
Sky Captain it is an awesome film. I was disappointed with Harsh Times and have yet to see Street Kings due to negative reviews. Most of the time I watch a movie dealing with law enforcement and can't stand them because that shit would never happen(i'm in law enforcement). With End of Watch some of the stuff is over the top but it is done very well mainly because of the two cops chemistry. Highly recommend it.
I've just got back from seeing this in the Cinema it only came out today here in the UK and this is already one the best films I've ever seen. Easliy in the top 3 films of the year, I'd probably say it's my number 1 of the year so far! Loved it. I will probably import this if the price is right I don't think I could wait for a UK release.
Loved the movie, but hated the camera angles. I would probably buy it, but the camera angles bugged me. There is really good chemistry between the two leads though and the film is a definite must watch IMO.
