Video: How Does the Disc Look?
End of Watch is designed to make it seem like almost the entire movie has been shot with micro-cameras and camcorders, and in that regard, this 1.85:1 1080p transfer is a knockout. There are limitations to the 'beauty' of the imagery here, of course, but there's no question that the visual design of the movie has been replicated here with perfect authenticity. For what it's worth, detail quality and color accuracy are solid, and this presentation is thankfully free of compression artifacting and aliasing and banding.
Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?
There's a bit of bossiness to this DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound mix: again, it's meant to be a fly-on-the-wall experience, but you'll definitely be reaching for your volume control a couple times. Other than these few hiccups, though, this track showcases clean, audible dialogue, some cool directional effects, and atmospherics that infiltrate surround channels with excellent results. Not a perfect mix, but definitely one that is in keeping with End of Watch's overall feel.
English SDH, Spanish, and French subtitles are included.
