Trivia

The film could had ended with Breacher and Caroline discovering that Lizzie was not only the responsible for the murders of the team, she sold out Breacher and allowed the cartel to kidnap, torture and murder Breacher's family and promised Sugar a share of the money, if he agreed to help her murder the team and give the money back to the cartel.

Goofs

Since the money was blown up/burned; A: how do they KNOW that $10 million is missing, and B: whether or not there is some missing, the only ones who know are the cops. So, if the cartel finds out, guess who told them. See more »

So bad.
30 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is absolutely terrible. The main plot point makes very little sense, as the basis for the film is precipitated by a completely unnecessary risk taken by the elite DEA task force.

The characters are abysmally written. Each one has fully embraced their "gutter trash" personas so that they can be the "best undercover agents in the DEA". The result of this is that every member of the team is completely unlikeable, a trait which extends even to Schwarzenegger's John 'Breacher' Wharton, and I found myself not caring in the least when a character was killed off.

The female characters in the film were unattractive, in every respect.

Please keep in mind, Schwarzenegger is my favorite action star. End of Watch is one of my favorite films. I greatly enjoyed Harsh Times.

Did it seem like the filmmakers made an effort to incorporate realistic room-clearing tactics into the film? Yes, and it should always be appreciated when consultants with actual experience in a field are hired to contribute to a film's authenticity. But it doesn't compete with the nonsensical storyline or the forced, unbelievable interactions between the static, uninteresting characters.

This film is absolutely terrible.
