I'm surprised at some of the movies people actually paid to see. To each their own, but not many actually appealed to me. Out of the handful I watched the worst was Battleship for sure, and I only watched it out of extreme boredom. But I can't imagine it being the worst movie of the year when Nicholas Cage was in one.
I quite enjoyed End of Watch, but the Mexicans -- Holy Christ! "Eff this", "eff that". I understand that use of language is probably prevalent within gang communities, but the way the actors delivered the curse words was just terrible.
I don't mind the ending, except for the: Earlier That Day video. What was the significance of that?
Regarding the bullet-proof vest, have you ever seen someone in shock? That's exactly how they react, by babbling about anything but the traumatic event itself. It's a defense mechanism of sorts.
As for the ending, at first I had your reaction but then I realized that it's just as brutal if not moreso that Gyllenhaal now has to go through life without his best friend and with the knowledge that he played a large role in his death. IMO that ending is a lot more effective than if they had both died.
And the "no plot" comment is just ridiculous.

End of watch was a fantastic film. I can understand thinking it was mediocre, but it's not bad.
"No plot" is even stupider.
The guy has Taken 2, Resident Evil, Three Stooges (!) & Journey 2 as part of his top ten movies of the year - don't waste your time.
For real, that guy is a clown. RE:R was one of the worst movies I've ever seen in my entire life. I honestly can't fathom how someone would rate that movie positively. And it's not bad because I'm not into the series or that kind of movie, it's just a straight up awful movie. Legitimately embarrassing.
