End of Watch
Blu-ray ($34.98)

Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña are teamed as a pair of L.A.-cop partners patrolling some of the city’s meanest streets, hoping as always, to head home at their “end of watch” to their significant others (Anna Kendrick and Natalie Martinez). But a routine traffic violation that turns into something much more dangerous and might make for a change of plans on this particular night. Bonus features include behind-the scenes documentaries, and commentary from writer and director David Ayer provides insight into his use of different points-of-view from the movie’s police officers, gang members, dashboard cams, handheld video recorders and other characters’ perspectives to unfold the movie’s gritty, gripping drama.
