I'm uber critical when it comes to L.A. and how "urban" life is represented. It usually shows a part that's correct, a part that's outdated with mostly stereotypes and bad acting.

It specially grinds my gears when they have non Mexicans try to play Mexicans, shit irks. I'm sure there's other ethnicities that feel the same way.

Just saw it yesterday, was pleasantly surprised. Had a lot of good elements to it and I thought it was going to be a crappy generic cop movie.

I know I gave it a good review in the "rate the last movie" thread.

I sort of saw it on a whim one Saturday afternoon after seeing The Master. I was pleasantly surprised. I felt like it was gonna be a gimmicky handy cam flick, which it was, but by sprinkling in some security cams, some cams from police cars, some other characters with cams, it felt more dynamic.

I felt the best parts were the bits completely unrelated to the main story. The house fire. The wedding. I coulda lived with just sort of random cop stuff and big life moments. I felt the overarcing story with the human trafficking and cartel was a bit over the top. That could've just been a standard street gang, they didn't have to play into the stereotypes quite so much, and they certainly didn't need the international trafficking element, for that to have ended the same way it did.

But overall, definitely worth checking out.

I enjoyed it, but I wouldn't it great. A solid 7/10. The whole premise of Jake Gyllenhaal filming shit for his class is completely bullshit. For a police officer to do that would be a seriously felony. They wouldn't just tell him to stop doing it like in the movie. You can't just film police procedures for your off duty benefit.

I just saw it and I though it was a cool movie too. Jack is a better actor than I expected though.
