END OF WATCH (2012)
End of Watch || Brian Taylor and Miguel Zavala are close friends and partners in the Newton Division of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) in South Central Los Angeles. Taylor, a US Marine veteran, is recording their police activities for a film project.
Upon responding to a public disturbance call, Tre, a Bloods gang member, yells racial insults at Zavala, who responds by accepting a one-on-one fist fight. Zavala beats and arrests him, but wins Tre’s respect for not charging him with assault. Later that night, Tre and his fellow Bloods gang members are attacked by a group of Sureños in a drive-by shooting and one of Tre’s friends is killed. The next day, the officers respond to a noise complaint at a house party full of Sureños, where Taylor and Zavala encounter gang members named Big Evil and LaLa.
Taylor and Zavala are awarded the Medal of Valor after rescuing three children from a house fire. Upon further investigating a house, they arrest a man who is also in possession of several ornate firearms, and is guarding a cell full of human trafficking victims. When ICE officers arrive, one officer informs the officers that the house is tied to the Sinaloa Cartel, and strongly urges them to “lay low” due to possible reprisals. Around this time, Taylor begins dating a woman named Janet, and Zavala’s wife Gabby gives birth to their first child.
