From the writer of Training Day comes a gripping, action-packed cop drama starring Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña. In their mission to abide by their oath to serve and protect, Officers Brian Taylor (Gyllenhaal) and Mike Zavala (Peña) have formed a powerful brotherhood to ensure they both go home at the end of watch. But nothing can prepare them for the violent backlash that happens after they pull over the members of a notorious drug cartel for a routine traffic stop. Seen from the point of view of the officers, gang members, surveillance cameras, dash cams and citizens caught in the line of fire, a 360° perspective creates a gritty, compassionate and intense portrait of the city’s darkest streets, and the brave men and women patrolling them.

Audio: Just as with the visuals, the audio would change according to the scene/shot to make it really feel as if it was coming through a camcorder. There wasn't a point in time during the film that I could remember where the audio didn't sound good. It wasn't absolutely perfect, but it was done very well.
Music: From was I can remember, the music fit the film but it wasn't memorable. I can't say all the much about the music since I cannot really remember it.
Editing: I loved the editing. The less you notice the editing, the better the editor did his/her job. Which I why I tend to pay close attention to the editing. This film was cut very smoothly. Each shot was held for the perfect about of time. I saw no jarring cuts. There were some jump cuts, but they were used quite well. In fact, the film was edited so nicely that from time to time, I didn't notice the cuts. Although the editing of the film was no Memento, it was still beautifully pieced together.
Story/plot: I felt that there was no real plot. It basically was just the lives of two cops and the stuff they dealt with. Other then that, there wasn't much too it. When they brought back a character that was established early on in the film, I wasn't really expecting it as I didn't believe that there was much significance to that character. Basically, I wasn't the biggest fan of the concept. But the execution was well done.
It gives you a new respect for what the police, especially the LAPD, are out there doing every day in some of the worst neighborhoods, especially South Central. I had no idea because you don't really hear about this on the news, or if you do, it's just about an isolated incident. It's presented like a documentary because Jake Gyllenhaal's character is actually filming for a college class he's taking in his pre-law program.
Very well done film and a story nobody has done before, at least not like this. I highly recommend it.
