END OF WATCH is a US drama filmed in the style of a documentary. It follows two Los Angeles patrolmen working in the South Central district, which is plagued with drugs, violence and gangs.

Language

There is frequent strong language throughout the film, including several aggressive uses.

Violence

There are a number of shoot-outs between police and gang members, some of which feature moments of bloody injury detail, although without any strong gore. In one scene a police officer is stabbed, leaving him with a knife in his eye. In another scene body parts are found inside a house, including some severed heads.

Sex

During a wedding party scene a drunk woman talks graphically about sexual techniques.

There is some sight of people smoking marijuana joints at a party. There is also a discussion about the thrill of using heroin, although the film as a whole does not condone or glamorise drug use.
