Brett Harrison Davinger and Dan Fields offer their 10 favorite movies of 2012. Plus some honorable mentions.
End Of Watch is a perfectly serviceable drama. It is also a bait and switch job. Writer/director David Ayer, whose chief preoccupations are Los Angeles street life and the pitfalls of police work, set out to create a different kind of cop movie and succeeded. This mean that the ads linking this film to Ayer’s breakout script Training Day are inappropriate.
