I was blown away by this movie. First of all, it gave me a whole new respect for the police officers that fight for our protection everyday. It really is a thankless job. They risk their lives everyday and don’t get the respect they deserve. It’s scary out there. So I want to take this moment to thank them all. You are very brave individuals.
On to the movie. Wow. Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena were terrific! The emotions that they pulled out were top notch. When they were driving around in their cruiser and chatting with each other, I felt like I was watching two cops that were not only partners but brothers also. I kept forgetting it was a movie.
Even the thugs were great. The director of this movie, (David Ayer), did a splendid job on how everyone portrayed their characters. It felt real. I will not say anything more because the ending took me by surprise and I don’t want to ruin anything.
Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.) We always have Peetimes for the latest wide release films, including OnWard, 1917, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc. You can also keep up with the latest movie news and reviews on our blog or by following us on Twitter @RunPee, and liking us on Facebook.
RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
