“I am the Police, and I am here to arrest you. You have broken the law. I did not write the law, I may even disagree with the law, but I will enforce it. Nothing will stop me from placing you in a steel cage with bars. Behind my badge is a heart like yours. I bleed, I think, I love, and yes, I can be killed. And although I am but one man, I have thousands of brothers and sisters who would die for me and I for them. We stand watch together. I am fate with a badge and a gun. The Thin-Blue-Line, protecting the prey from the predators, the good from the bad. We are the Police.”
-End of Watch
I saw this film the other day and found it a refreshing portrayal of big city cops running big city calls. Overall the movie hit squarely on the camaraderie of unique and brave individuals doing a serious and dangerous job very few would want to do. Other than one scene at the beginning (pure Hollywood) I found that it shows officers in a very good light doing a tough job in a tough city. This is one of the more realistic "police movies" I have seen in awhile. It was obvious that the stars of the film took the time and effort to complete "ride-alongs" with the real LAPD. If you are thinking about a career in law enforcement I encourage you to take a look at this film. It's tough to watch at times and it will stress you out during some scenes, but nothing like doing it for real.
